Our History
Established in 1988, Hy-Lite Products revolutionized the privacy window market by introducing pre-framed acrylic block windows as an alternative to old-fashioned glass block. Lighter and easier to install than traditional glass block, Hy-Lite's acrylic block windows eliminated the mortar, mess, and time-consuming labor of old-fashioned glass block masonry window applications.

In 1996, U S Block Windows, Inc. was founded, further modernizing the privacy window market by introducing impact-modified acrylic blocks as well as cut-to-size and fully operable acrylic block windows. Winning a Crystal Achievement Award in 2001 for its revolutionary acrylic block single hung and acrylic block slider, U S Block Windows, Inc. proudly led the block window market into the 21st century with its many unique patents and groundbreaking innovation.

On March 30, 2009, U S Block Windows, Inc. acquired the assets of Hy-Lite Products and now proudly manufactures the nation's most robust line of privacy window products as
Hy-Lite®, a U.S. Block Windows Company.

Replacement Windows
 
Because One Size Never Fits All

Hy-Lite has developed the unique technology to custom cut acrylic block windows into virtually any size and shape, making it easier than ever to create the styles of your dreams.

To custom-size an acrylic block window, we first assemble a panel of acrylic blocks in the color and style of your choice. We then cut the perimeter blocks in a symmetrical fashion and triple seal the panel. The custom panel is glazed into your selected frame type and is then shipped ready to install.

Choose a simple fixed-style window or get even more creative with a custom-sized operable window. Casements, awnings, single hungs, sliders, and even basement hoppers can all be custom-sized.

From traditional accents to bold, innovative designs, Hy-Lite can help bring your imaginative concepts to life.
