Wrightstyle Announces US Partnership

Advanced steel glazing systems from Wrightstyle, the Devizes-based steel and fire resistant glass specialist, have been incorporated into a range of large span, fire resistant and blast protection systems, now being launched in North America and Canada.

The partnership with Hope’s Windows, the USA’s pre-eminent manufacturer of custom steel windows, steel doors, security windows, and fire-resistant curtain walling, is a significant endorsement of the UK company’s long term research and design developments.

The glazing systems are being marketed by Hope’s Windows, as the 7000 Series thermal break and fire resistant curtain wall and roof systems, and are also incorporated into the Liberty500 blast resistant system. -one of the most advanced systems in the world

Hope’s Windows’s, founded in 1912 with headquartered in New York State, has representation throughout the United States, and also regularly supplies its residential, commercial and institutional systems into Canada.

The Wright Style/ Hope’s Windows partnership, follows a series of successful joint fire tests, with Intertek Testing Services in Madison, Wisconsin, to add US fire test compliance for 60 min curtain wall, 120 min curtain wall, and 2 hour low temperature rise single and double doors, and compliment Wrightstyle’s other international test certifications.

The addition of US test certification, was not only a vital component in the partnership with Hope’s Windows, but reflects the increasing globalisation of the specialist glass and glazing market, as specifications for fire and bomb resistant glazing, become more widely common in North America.
