Our signature 2Fold® technology
Unlike traditional wood windows, made exclusively of wood, and aluminum windows, made exclusively of aluminum, we offer you the best of both worlds. This is because OpenUp windows are intelligently designed and engineered using the framing materials best suited for the job. It’s what we call our 2Fold technology, ensuring you receive the perfect combination of strength, thermal insulation, and natural beauty.
Our 2Fold method begins with your window’s critical structural parts, like the moving sash, which need to be strong. Here, we’ve opted for heavy extruded tubular aluminum, which delivers superior insulation over standard aluminum without sacrificing durability or longevity.
For the sash interior (glazing beads) and outside frame, however, we’ve opted for Accoya® wood. Considered a? miracle wood, Accoya® provides the rich finish and beauty one can only get from wood. But unlike other wood species, Accoya® is better able to withstand the elements and resist damaging pests, including termites. Sustainably sourced and fully recyclable, our Accoya® materials are harvested trailing a 12-year growth cycle and are then treated to an all-natural pickling process using an organic vinegar solution. Unlike other metal windows, we use no plastic thermal breaks.
Features meet functionality in a carefully constructed window that has been thoughtfully designed to invite many years of meals, conversations, and memories. Our talented designers have not overlooked any detail right down to our replaceable gas struts at each jamb, both of which are fully concealed when your window is in the closed position. Stainless steel piano hinges secure the top, while a single operating lever is located conveniently at the base of the window for fluid locking, unlocking, and movement. To ensure optimal aesthetics on your countertop, we’ve also eliminated the lock strike and, instead, positioned locking points on both ends of the sash that simultaneously engage with the frame of the window).

Assurance built right in?
More than a window, we like to think of our products as an extension to your home. This means that we design and build every window with care using the highest in engineering standards to ensure they don’t just look good but last through years of heavy use.
This begins with our Accoya® frames, which are joined with mortise and tenon, glazing beads with dovetail keys. It also extends into our aluminum extrusions, which are meticulously crafted using a CNC machine to include heavy corner keys that are sealed and mechanically connected to resist sagging and provide exceptional endurance.
From thoughtful design through meticulous construction in our factory, it’s no wonder OpenUp is the name homeowners trust. An Approved Accoya® Manufacturer, OpenUp provides the assurance of our 10-year limited warranty on top of Accoya’s 50-year guarantee against rot and failure.
