duxtonexteriorApril 30, 2013 – Duxton’s open house events took place at 45 Higgins in Winnipeg on April 10 and April 18 to celebrate its new 20,000-square-foot manufacturing plant and the completion of its showroom. Over 100 industry professionals attended, including architects, engineers, builders, and contractors.
 
The showroom boasts a unique fiberglass pultrusion display, 3D wall sections, the new FiberWall door system, and industry-leading quint pane R-20 (COG) glass. On the plant tour, visitors were able to see new equipment including a pop-up saw, and new product developments such as seamless glazing, designed to mimic curtain wall systems but with a warmer frame.
 
Glass expert Tom Clark from Cardinal Glass made presentations throughout the day on their extensive product array, including their new room-side Low-E coating and their new warm edge spacer with improved strength and thermal performance.

“The number of glazing options was impressive,” says Chris Richter, project manager from Crosier Kilgour. “The information will certainly help me and my design team with the decision making process.”
 
In the factory, Duxton displayed architect-driven designs that made full use of its new FiberWall system: an eight-foot tall prairie-style fiberglass wood entry door, and an expansive window configuration for a custom Edmonton home, measuring over 15 feet wide.

“People don’t understand how much custom work they do,” says Myron Pasaluko from Stantec. “The huge frames and custom fiberglass door panel were very impressive. It’s been wonderful to see the company’s growth and development over the last 12 years.”
