DUXTON Windows & Doors is a business dedicated to manufacturing beautiful, high-performance windows and doors. Based in Winnipeg, Canada, DUXTON manufactures products for temperature extremes from -30°C to +30°C, resulting in excellent energy efficiency. The combination of insulated fiberglass frames with warm edge dual, triple, or even up to quint pane glass creates some of the most leading edge systems in the world.
Fiberglass is created by pulling strands of glass through a heated die, resulting in a material that is strong, resilient, and suited to all weather conditions. Essentially a carbon fiber product, it has been used for many purposes, including boats, satellites, bridges, and goalie masks, where it is subject to extreme temperatures and constant abuse.
The material characteristics of pultruded fiberglass includes very low rates of expansion and contraction. This characteristic provides an excellent advantage in maintaining good seal contact in hot or cold weather due to reduced relative movement of frames, sash and glass relative to each other.
Fiberglass features the lowest embodied energy (low energy consumption in lineal production) when compared to other common widow frame materials, as well as providing the longest life expectancy.
A well-engineered fiberglass window demonstrates vastly superior strength characteristic when compared to other windows, like PVC. Fiberglass supports large insulating glass units, allowing you to create a stunning wall of glass.
Pultruded fiberglass materials have MUCH lower conductivity than materials such as aluminum. Insulated frame and sash components reduce the conductivity, allowing for the creation of some of the most energy efficient details in the world.
Fiberglass is an extremely stable material that does not rot or require regular maintenance like wood.
The non-corrosive characteristic of the material is an advantage when considering coastal applications.
