ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF HOT-ROLLED STEEL

Through decades of research, development and testing, Hope’s Windows, Inc. has worked to perfect the handcrafted artistry of hot-rolled steel windows and doors. As our world changes, many new and unique building codes, policies and guidelines are established to help preserve our planet and natural resources.

CONSERVING NATURAL RESOURCES

Today, steel is the most recycled material in the United States. Each year, the steel industry saves enough energy through recycling to power 18 million homes—one-fifth of the nation’s households. We are proud of the fact that our steel windows and doors are made with hot-rolled sections that are 100% recycled steel (97% post-consumer, 3% post industrial).

IMPROVED AIR/WATER PERFORMANCE

Fusion-welded corners and face-welded muntin intersections, providing seamless construction, set the standard for our impervious products. Hope’s triple weatherstripping applied to integral grooves significantly reduces air infiltration and water penetration.

ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY COATINGS

An integral part of our 15-stage pretreatment process is an electro-deposited (e-coat) epoxy primer paint application. Hope’s steel windows and doors e-coat process is lead-free, contains zero hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and has ultra-low volatile organic compounds (VOC). Following the e-coat application, all steel surfaces receive a two-component polyurethane finish paint. This high performance finishing process results in a product with unlimited color options and extremely low maintenance requirements.

SUSTAINABILITY

Strength and durability of hot-rolled steel consistently outperform wood, aluminum and vinyl products. The life cycle and unique characteristics of Hope’s custom products provide unparalleled value.

LEED® CERTIFICATION

Hope’s will assist building owners and architects in fulfilling credits within the LEED® Rating System. Refer to U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) published LEED Reference Guides for further information.

Hope’s custom-made steel windows and doors offer impeccable quality, unrivaled artistry and superior strength that complement any architectural theme.

Hope's Operations During COVID-19

Like all businesses and organizations throughout the United States, Hope’s has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. As you would expect, our first priority is the health and safety of our employees, representatives, distributors, and customers who all make it possible for us to consistently provide the highest level of products and services.

In light of President Trump’s “15 Days to Slow the Spread” guidelines we implemented procedures and protocols to do our part including social distancing, sanitizing, and stepping down occupancy of our campus buildings.

On Friday March 20, New York’s Gov. Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.8 requiring all non-essential businesses to reduce the number of on-site employees by 100% effective March 22, 2020. Therefore, in compliance, we have temporarily suspended manufacturing operations.

Hope’s has submitted an official request to New York State to be designated an “essential business,” which when granted would permit Hope’s to continue manufacturing and shipping product. We expect to receive a positive response within the next two days.

In the meantime, Hope’s administrative, sales, project management, and engineering personnel are working remotely from home and continue to be available to communicate with our valued customers. We are continuing to estimate, submit bids, and produce shop drawings for contract work.

Hope’s will remain diligent and highly responsive to all our customers and will keep you updated with future developments.

Be safe and stay healthy!
