Hope’s® Unveils Web Content about its New Thermal Evolution™ Technology for Solid, Hot-Rolled Steel Windows

Launched in December, the patented solution achieves a U-factor as low as 0.170 while avoiding the pitfalls of splitting steel profiles

Publish Date: Friday, January 31, 2014

JAMESTOWN, NY - Hope’s® announces new website content about the superior manufacturing and performance of its new, patented Thermal Evolution™ Technology for the company’s solid, hot-rolled steel windows: www.hopeswindows.com/evolution.

The Hope’s Thermal Evolution Technology employs fiberglass reinforced polymer (FRP) liners that are structurally bonded to fully-welded, hot-rolled, solid steel window and door frames. This creates a powerfully strong and durable composite construction that delivers impressive thermal efficiency and enhanced resistance to condensation.

WHY HOPE'S DOESN'T SPLIT FRAMES: Hope’s, a company with more than 100 years of industry experience, illustrates on the website its carefully considered decision to avoid splitting its solid, hot-rolled steel frames to achieve thermal efficiency. Some manufacturers create a thermal break in metal windows by splitting frames into exterior and interior sections, then reconnecting these sections with a polymer (plastic). To retain the superior structural strength and durability for which Hope’s steel windows are renowned–the longest lasting on the market–Hope’s decided its solid steel windows would remain completely intact for the full depth of the window profile.

”Hope’s remains the only manufacturer of solid hot-rolled steel windows and doors with a thermal break,” says John Brown, Vice President/Engineering at Hope’s. “There’s no comparison in strength and durability between Hope’s solid hot-rolled steel windows and those that simply contain steel parts.”

The first product line to feature the Thermal Evolution Technology is the Hope’s Landmark175™ Series which achieved impressive testing results from the National Fenestration Rating Council® (NFRC): a 0.170 U-factor during a series of tests completed in May 2013; and a 0.25 U-factor during tests finished in October 2013.

The Hope’s advanced coating process ensures that all Hope’s steel windows and doors last longer than any other available, even under the most extreme environmental conditions.

Hope’s®, based in Jamestown, NY is the nation’s leading and most experienced manufacturer of custom designed, precision hot-rolled solid steel and solid bronze window and door systems, specializing in cultural, commercial, institutional and luxury residential applications.
