IBS 2012: Hy-Lite Introduces Two New Products, Models for Architects & Updated Information Sources

PENSACOLA, FLA. - (February 8, 2012) - Introducing two new groundbreaking products, new building information models making it easier for architects to integrate Hy-Lite products into their projects, a brand-new comprehensive catalog, a newly redesigned Web site and social media portals, Hy-Lite's booth at IBS 2012 will be overflowing with new information.

What's New?
DecoGuardTM is the first hurricane impact-resistant decorative glass window in the industry. Offering stylish protection from the harsh weather conditions associated with hurricanes and tropical storms, DecoGuard is the ideal window for safe and luxurious coastal living. The 48-inch square designer window starts with a heavy-duty vinyl frame and impact-resistant laminated insulated glass. Add in an elegant floral pattern kiln-fired directly onto the glass, dramatic black lines and rich, frosted privacy glass and the result is a beautifully safe window no coastal home should be without.

Also new from Hy-Lite is an in-swing egress casement-style window featuring sparkling acrylic blocks. A perfect mix of beauty, form and function, this new window offers up the practicality of meeting egress code requirements while providing privacy and elegance. As an added bonus to homeowners, these privacy windows also replace the dreaded window-well view with the beauty and style of acrylic block. Available in both new construction and replacement frames, the energy-efficient double- and triple-paned egress windows can be custom-sized to fit virtually any rough opening.

Taking Hy-Lite Direct to Architects
Newly published building information models (BIMs) for use with Revit Architecture software from AutoDesk make it easier than ever for architects to insert acrylic block and decorative glass windows from Hy-Lite seamlessly into their designs. The information is available to architects via free download at
