Window walls are still a rarity in many homes; most typical windows and doors simply don't have the structural performance required to build large openings.

 

Innotech's Hybrid System allows our clients to design and build with extra large openings. Every window and doors is made with galvanized steel framing integrally bonded to unplasticized European PVC profiles providing excellent structural performance. 

 

Building professionals also appreciate our products' design flexibility. Every design feature can be customized, from the windows' size and shape to the use of mullions and transoms, giving each window wall its own unique look. 

 

The structural performance and design flexibility of our windows and doors allows architects to replicate the look of window walls in single family homes. Depending on the height and width of the wall, some structural beams may be required.   

 

Here are a few of our favourite spaces that replicate the look of window walls:

We love seeing beautiful photos of our clients' projects!

 

Lately, we've spotted a growing kitchen design trend: replacing upper cabinets with extra large windows. And we've got to say: we love this look! It opens up the space making the kitchen look huge, floods the space with warmth and natural light, and is a wonderful departure from "cabinets gallore" designs.

 

Here are a few of our favourite upper-cabinet-free kitchen designs:
