Exploring the Versatility of Hurrishield® Modern Window and Door Designs

In the realm of interior home design and construction, windows and doors play a pivotal role in enhancing aesthetics, energy efficiency, and overall functionality. As homeowners increasingly seek innovative solutions, a variety of window and door styles have emerged to cater to diverse tastes and requirements. In this blog, Florida Design Works delves into the features and benefits of our full line of  energy-efficient Hurrishield® Windows and Doors collection, tailored to your client’s specifications for a perfect fit. Addiitonally, our premium storm windows boast certification from Miami-Dade for Hurricane Resistance, ensuring unmatched resilience against adverse weather conditions.

Single Hung Windows

Single Hung Windows are a classic choice characterized by a vertically sliding bottom sash and a fixed top sash. This design is not only visually appealing but also offers excellent ventilation control. Single Hung Windows are energy-efficient, providing a tight seal when closed, and are relatively easy to clean due to their tilting feature.

Horizontal Rolling Windows

Horizontal Rolling Windows, also known as slider windows, feature two or more sashes that slide horizontally. This design is not only contemporary but also provides an unobstructed view when fully open. Horizontal Rolling Windows are easy to operate and offer excellent ventilation options, making them a popular choice for modern homes.

Casement & Fixed Casement Windows

Casement Windows are hinged on the side and open outward, similar to a door. This design provides maximum ventilation and allows for unobstructed views. Fixed Casement Windows, on the other hand, don’t open and are ideal for complementing other window styles. Both designs are energy-efficient and offer a sleek, modern look.

Thermally Broken Fixed Window (Fixed & Casement Combination)

Thermally Broken Fixed Windows combine the advantages of fixed and casement windows, offering a fixed portion for a clear view and a casement portion for added ventilation. The thermally broken feature enhances energy efficiency by preventing heat transfer, ensuring a comfortable interior climate.

Sliding Glass Door

Sliding Glass Doors are a popular choice for connecting indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly. With large glass panels that slide horizontally, they provide ample natural light and easy access to patios or gardens. Modern sliding doors come with advanced security features and energy-efficient glass options.

French Door

French Doors are a timeless and elegant choice that adds a touch of sophistication to any home. Characterized by multiple glass panels, French Doors swing open from the center. They are ideal for creating a grand entrance to a garden, balcony, or patio, offering a perfect blend of beauty and functionality.

Bi-Fold Door

Bi-Fold Doors are a space-saving solution that folds and stacks to one or both sides, creating a wide opening. This design is perfect for connecting indoor and outdoor spaces, providing flexibility in usage. Bi-Fold Doors are known for their versatility and can be customized to fit various architectural styles.

Thermally Broken Sliding Glass Door

Thermally Broken Sliding Glass Doors, similar to their window counterparts, feature a thermal break to enhance energy efficiency. These doors provide a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces while maintaining insulation properties, ensuring comfort and sustainability.
