It’s been quite the busy year for Windows Hawaii — and actually, even more so, it’s been a busy 10 years since it opened in 2009. This comes not only to the pleasure of the company, but also to the renowned happiness of customers who have installed the company’s durable and quality products.
The all around success of Windows Hawaii has also lead to the expansion of its facilities. Now located in Kapolei at 91-314 Komohana St., the new, larger facility accommodates a sparkling new showroom.
Here, customers can browse the quality and protection of what so many Hawaii homeowners already experience in their homes every day with Windows Hawaii products.
The Ali‘i Extreme Windows & Doors is one of the company’s most successful line products manufactured by Anlin Window Systems, especially because it is tailored to Hawaii’s tropical climate.
Ali‘i Extreme bestows homeowners with heightened peace of mind boasting several qualities of strength and protection, including robust glass that can withstand winds of up to 120 miles per hour.
Furthermore the technological advancements are unmatched with features like Comfort-Core™ Foam Fill, Triple-Guard Weatherstripping, Argon “Flood-Filled” chamber, Aluma-Force™ Extruded Screen Frame — in which this frame is made with thick walls of high-test aluminum and no worry of bending or damaging during cleanings. Additionally, fiberglass reinforcement, sound suppression and upgraded rollers add to the benefits.
The Argon “Flood-Filled” Chamber replaces argon-injected technology, which is a step above the rest since it increases windows’ R-value and minimizes heat exchange through the window.
Comfort-Core is a green foam inserted in specific dead air chambers for maximum efficiency and the fiberglass reinforcement is an ultra-strong insert providing thermal insulation and resists condensation.
Other details of these features are dissimilar, thicker, glass panes of the sound suppression technology, which substantially reduces noise coming in or going out. The Triple-Guard Weatherstripping comes with three strips for each window adding triple protection against moisture, dirt, noise, bacteria, mold and mildew.
Finally, not found with other companies on the island, the Ali‘i Extreme window is wet glazed rather than using a double-sided tape to secure the IGU to the frame.
More than windows, Windows Hawaii’s Celect siding has just as much success as its Ali‘i Extreme counterpart being most favored by existing customers and stands as the best option when deciding to re-side a home. It presents a plethora of benefits for everything and everyone in the house. Celect gives the appearance of natural wood but without the future maintenance proplems. It resists moisture and is promised to never warp, buckle or shift, unlike real wood.
Furthermore, the material that Celect is comprised of helps residents reduce worry about termites and even save a few bucks on electric bills.
“Here in Hawaii, we especially like staying cooler in the summer, but we also like to keep our home energy cost down and use renewable products,” stated general manager Mario Garcia. “Celect’s siding is 100-percent recyclable and provides an R-value that’s twice the thermal value of comparable siding products.”
One of the greatest benefits of Celect is its maintenance-free feature. “Celect is certainly easier to install than fiber cement siding and most would agree it presents a nicer appearance,” said Garcia. “You’ll never need to worry about paint, caulking or delaminating, plus you can forget about mold, deteriorations, scrubbing and hiring maintenance crews.”
