Hy-Lite’s newest fixed window model, the Vari-Lite, incorporates a full set of blinds between two panes of glass. The window is available in a standard 4 by 4 foot size, and AAMA certified to DP 100.

Homeowners can use the finger-tip controls on the side of the window frame to raise, lower, or tilt the incorporated blinds. According to the manufacturer, the cord-free blind operation reduces safety risks for children and pets in the home.

“We’re enhancing our privacy window offering with this new Vari-Lite window that gives homeowners full control over their privacy desires,” says Roger Murphy, president of Hy-Lite. “…Let the sun shine in full force or tilt the blinds to reduce the rays, the Vari-Lite window makes it possible to completely control the amount of light or privacy in the home. And, because the blinds are securely encased in the glass unit, there’s no cleaning hassles with the blinds or the possibility of them getting tangled. Raising, lowering and tilting the blinds is an effortless way to put privacy control at your fingertips.”

The Vari-Lite window is available in four standard frame colors: white, tan, driftwood, and bronze. Special options include tan, driftwood, or bronze blind colors, or blind controls on either the left or right side. It may also be custom-ordered in special sizes, with some limits on minimum and maximum height and width. hy-lite.com
