    Hey There Nbdcreport,
    Along the same lines,, Architectural designs and products become ever increasingly complex, with advancing technologies allowing the use of innovative materials and meeting the new demands of aesthetics and the need for energy efficient and comfortable homes and buildings. This is especially true for the fenestration industry, where the production of windows, skylights and curtain walls are needed to integrate with, and contribute to, the new aesthetic designs of modern and contemporary construction. The days when standard framing and windows are ordered and fit into a building or designer home seem to be disappearing fast. Many are looking too those producers in the fenestration industry who are able to customise the design, appearance and thermal efficiency of such products. However, without the correct tools in place, the ability of those businesses in the fenestration industry to produce the windows, skylights and curtain walls to meet the demands of the modern consumer, developer and designer, as well as the increasing legislation and best practice approach to thermal efficiency.
    Catch you again soon!
