Wright Windows began in 1969 when Leo, Rose, and Frank Wright decided to venture into the home improvement business by supplying timber windows and stairs for the Irish market. Then the company expanded its production line by adding un-plasticized polyvinyl chloride windows, making it the pioneer in producing such windows back in 1982. Eight years later, the company added aluminum as a window material, and it further developed into manufacturing timber-aluminum composite windows. The company was acquired by Heiton Plc. in 2002, and currently, it is a part of Grafton Group Plc., the leading builders merchant in Ireland.
Wright Windows offers three varieties of window materials for every Irish home. Its uPVC windows are low in maintenance and perfect for private homes and buildings, while the elegant finishes in wooden or timber windows is perfect for contemporary homeowners. Aluminum-clad windows are durable and protective of the home, making them very ideal for the cold Irish weather.
Wright Windows produces a range of window styles to complement every modern Irish home:
- Wright Casement Windows
- Wright Tilt and Turn Windows
- Wright French Windows
- Wright Sliding Windows
- Wright Open-In/Open-Out Windows
- Wright Bay and Bow Windows
- Wright Special Shape Windows
The quality that sets Wright Windows apart from other Irish window companies is that it has a long history of expertise in the production of windows using these three materials. It is the company’s advantage to be able to provide windows according to every customer’s need for protection, style, and privacy. With a wooden window, the company can turn a home into a cozy abode, and combining the aluminum material with it, a contemporary effect is added. Simply put, there is much room for configurations that the company can do when it comes to meeting its customers’ needs.
This company ensures that its products comply with the basic standards for durability and energy efficiency. These windows are rated A in energy performance, and they also passed the tests conducted by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI). The company’s EcoWright Gold products have a -0.27 rating in energy index and has a U-value of 1.44. This means that these windows can prevent excessive heat transference through them, making the home cooler or warmer depending on the season. This energy efficiency reduces energy costs in the home.
In addition, these windows received a high air leakage rating of 0.00 and a solar factor of 0.45. These numbers indicate that these windows can considerably block harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun, while allowing only natural light to pass through. In times of storms, they can also withstand severely strong winds, protecting the home from any debris that might enter. Also, they use a special spacer system that prevents condensation build-up within the window glass.
Like other window companies, Wright Windows makes sure that its customers can enjoy their selection. There is a wide range of colors available, including white, cream, light oak, rosewood, mahogany, woodgrain, and other colors that can be combined for the exterior and interior. Wood windows are available in Scandinavian pine or other hardwood species, and can be designed with paint finish or stain.
