Polytech Shape and Design

Our millwork is constantly checked for craftmanship as precise as .005 of an inch. PolyTech goes to painstaking lengths to craft handsome windows that enhance the look and comfort of your Home or Business.

Because each window is constructed to meet your personal requirements, your design options are endless. Whether you’re replacing a simple window or designing a complex arrangement, you need the right building blocks. PolyTech offers you many options. You can create unlimited combinations, thanks to our flexibility in both sizes and modifications.

    Installation Instructions

    Lock & Key Cylinders for Inswing Garden Doors

    With our Lock & Key Garden Door system, the design incorporates an outside handle for easy access even when the door is locked or latched from the inside. The handles on our European Doors serve a dual purpose, acting as the control for the multi-locking system that ensures weather tightness when the handle is in the downward position. A simple turn of the Cylinder, rotating it 2.5 times, securely locks the handle in the downward position, requiring the key for entry through the door.

    To unlock the door from the inside and release the multi-locking system, a similar 2.5 rotations are required, allowing the handle to release and be brought across the glass to effortlessly open and close the door. For those seeking a sleeker option, low-profile handles are also available.

    Brickmold Installation Tips

    Custom Brickmold windows are tailored to match your exact exterior measurements. Remember to verify interior frame measurements before ordering. The nail flange can be removed for renovation, with installation clips provided. The built-in J channel offers flexibility for renovation projects. Available sizes include White (1.5″ and 1″) and Dark Exterior (1″).

    Nail Flange

    Nail Flange-is separate from the window-

    1. Will be cut for the sides/top and bottom-and you would install it manually
    2. And seal it off on the outside for weather tightness

    Screen Installation

    Ensure the screen is properly aligned and securely fastened before completing the installation process.

    Handle Installation

    1. Gently pull the cap out slightly to reveal the screws.
    2. Insert the handle into the pre-drilled holes in the sash, ensuring it points towards the bottom of the window.
    3. Pull gently on the nameplate located on the handle and rotate it to one side. This action reveals the two screw holes for the handle.
    4. Insert the top screw and tighten it securely.
    5. Rotate the handle 90 degrees and proceed to install the lower screw.
    6. Return the nameplate to its original position.
