Insulate and Preserve your Specialty Window with Window Inserts
Oddly Shaped & Specialty Windows Require A Specialty Solution
Window inserts are an easy, affordable way to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient without blocking light, but many homeowners find themselves unable to enjoy the benefits of inserts if their specialty windows aren’t perfectly rectangular.
Round or circle windows, arched windows, triangle windows that fit the gable of your home, trapezoid windows, bowed windows, and other odd shaped windows can be difficult to insulate from cold drafts, loud noises, and other unwelcome intrusions, but luckily, Indow has the perfect solution for even the most peculiar of window shapes and sizes.
Custom Windows Require A Custom Window Insert
With our innovative technology, Indow manufactures customized inserts to fit any specialty shape window. Our high-quality specialty acrylic and snug-fit compression tubing means our inserts can make your home warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer, and quieter all year – all while helping you lower your energy bills.
To get started, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to create a template of your specialty window, using Tyvek or a similar material. You’ll trace the shape of your window, measure the dimensions using our Laser Measure Kit and submit both your template and measurement for production.
Once we receive your template, our production team will get started crafting a window insert that will perfectly fit the space of your specialty window. With our compression tubing, your new speciality shape inserts will slide snugly into place. You’ll barely even see them – but you’ll certainly be able to tell the difference in the comfort and quiet of your home!
An Indow Insert For Every Shape Of Window
If you’re not sure about the shape of your window or how to insulate it – don’t fret – just get in touch with one of our Window Experts and we’ll guide you through every step.
We are able to custom-cut inserts for nearly every kind of specialty window shape – but here are some examples of the most common window shapes and styles that we work with.
Round, Half Round, Quarter Round, Circle, or Half Circle Window
These shapes, often interchangeably called round and circle windows, are distinctive and beautiful architectural additions to your home.
However, it is easy to confuse round or circle windows with arch windows, so here is how we differentiate:
- A full round shape is a circular shape with consistent diameter from any point.
- A half round shape has a straight, bottom base with a consistent radius top.
Arch Window & Extended Segments
Arched windows differ from round or circle windows in that the window has a rectangular base but a consistent radius arc on top that merges with the rectangle portion of the window by cleanly rolling into parallel sides.
Indow also custom crafts many inserts for extended segments, which are similar to arch windows. An extended segment differs in that the arc on top is a partial, inconsistent radius on top that merges with the rectangle portion of the window.
Triangle windows are a popular design choice because they allow for the natural beauty outside to be accentuated by the angles of the window, increasing the bond between homeowner and the place they live in. Furthermore, triangle windows can be used to match the angles of the roof, creating an eye-catching architectural element.
The definition of trapezoid windows encompasses a lot of common shapes, but at Indow we use a wide and gracious definition: A trapezoid is a flat shape with 4 straight sides that has a pair of opposite sides parallel and often with 2 squared corners.
This means that gable windows, raked windows, and some windows that include triangle shapes at the top of the rectangular shape are all referred to as trapezoid windows.
An angular gable window uses angled sides that run parallel to the gable roof of a house. A raked window, similarly, uses irregular angles and sides to mimic and run parallel to the roof lines – but can be applied to roofs other than just gable roofs.
