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:

When designing a home, it's difficult to have both: lots of wall space and lots of windows. Often, we must trade one for the other. However, that doesn't always have to be the case. 

 

In some spaces, it's entirely possible to have both. Installed high on a wall, windows can be used for natural light without compromising wall space or privacy. It's an excellent design solution for walls on the side of a home (no one needs to have such a close-up view of their neighbour), in bedrooms where privacy is a concern or other spaces where wall space is needed (for furniture, art or family photos).

 

Take a look at how these beautiful spaces get the best of both worlds:
