In a move to expand its product portfolio with digital, forward-thinking products, Veka formed stand-alone company Digital Product Solutions Corp.
DPS Corp. will work closely with Veka’s customer base to bring digital solutions to the window and door industry, with potential for entry into the outdoor living market space.
Currently in testing, WIN™, short for window intelligence, introduces near field communications to window and door products. This patent-pending system creates a digital double of the product through cloud computing and hand-held mobile devices. A web-based program called a web cockpit, interacts with the fabricator’s software to build a complete copy of a window or door and tracks it throughout its life cycle. The product information is then accessed through mobile applications designed for home owners, facility managers and contractors.
This technology will allow customers to easily report issues, allow to schedule service calls, offer options for testing data and much more.
Your home is a place of safety and security at any time of the day. This is something that homeowners should consider when shopping for new windows. A window can be broken into within seconds, giving thieves easy access to your home. A break in happens every 15 seconds in North America and seldom is the glass broken.
Research shows that burglars will give up on a break-in if they can’t enter the home within five minutes. Windows and doors from HELT are especially secure, attempts to pry our windows or doors open will be futile.
Our modern fittings and mushroom locking mechanism together with steel reinforcement inside the frame make it impossible to open a window from the outside or even drill into the steel. HELT Tilt & Turn windows also lock in eight ( 8 ) different spots throughout the frame compared to standard windows that typically have no more than two ( 2 ) locking points.
Most standard windows require you to lock a window after it has been closed, which homeowners often forget. With a Tilt & Turn Handle from HELT the window automatically closes and locks in one simple motion.
You’ll never have to worry about leaving a window unlocked, giving burglars easy access to your home.
Keep your home safe and secure with a Tilt & Turn Window from HELT. Contact us to find the right window for you.
Vacation season is also one of the busiest time for burglaries. Houses are empty, the residents are on vacation and mailboxes are overflowing. Add a poorly lit property or keys under the doormat and breaking in becomes child’s play. Secure windows and doors can make a big difference. To ensure you can go worry free into your next vacation we have put together a few ways to keep your home safe:
Over 40 % of burglaries fail due to added security measures. If a thief is unable to enter your home within the first 3- 5 minutes they will give up and move on.

Aluminium is gaining popularity across all areas in residential home construction in part to new innovations. One of these areas is garage doors and the reasons for it are obvious :
The most popular version at HELT are aluminium garage doors as roller doors. This technology is similar to roll-up shutters and a popular style from Europe. The benefit of a roller door is that it takes up a lot less ceiling space in your garage. The entire door rolls into a box that is mounted right above the opening on either the outside or inside of your garage, which gives it a clean and elegant look. This technology also reduces the noise significantly as the door rolls up into the box.

Strength, Style and Security
Aluminium Windows have only recently found their way into the residential housing market and they are here to stay. Thanks to innovative technology that now makes aluminium frames at times more energy efficient than other types of windows, aluminium products are gaining massive popularity.
But what makes aluminium windows so unique and are they right for you home ?
Size does matter
Thanks to their strength aluminium windows and doors are perfect for oversized openings. If you can dream it, it can be build. With their strength they don’t need reinforcement thus their frames are typically thinner, giving it a cleaner more modern look.
Keeping it warm
Modern aluminium frames are thermally broken with vinyl, making them energy efficient. Some companies, including HELT, offer aluminium frames that also have a foam insulation injected into the thermal break. This drastically reduces heat-loss creating an energy efficient window that can even be used in a net-zero or ICF home.
All the colour of the Rainbow
HELT aluminium window and door frames have a powder-coated finish and are available in every RAL colour on the market. On top of that you can choose from glossy to fine structured finishes. The powder-coating process offers several outstanding results to the finished product. It makes the colours fade-resistant, robust, highly weather-resistant and easy to clean.
