• Screws
    Safe and Secure
    HECO-Schrauben is a byword for safety and reliability in fastening technology across the globe. While it is a badge HECO wears with pride, it brings responsibilities with it. HECO screws are subject to the most stringent quality testing before they are sent out in the world to forge permanent connections. HECO's view of quality is matched by their stance on environmental protection.

    Herrmann's Timber-Frames Homes is the exclusive importer and distributer of HECO products in North America.

Discovering GAULHOFER

Consultation counts. At the GAULHOFER World of Discovery at the plant location in Übelbach, Austria, star designer Stuart A.Veech has created optimal conditions and the perfect atmosphere for a consultation. His peaceful "window-less" window showroom allows you to focus on your own ideas and wishes directly on site. The new GAULHOFER showroom concept will be adapted by several flagship stores in 2011. If you would like to learn more about production at GAULHOFER, which was awarded the "Best of Styria" prize, you can see for yourself how our windows are manufactured by visiting the World of Discovery: Economy, in Übelbach. Discover what makes our windows and doors genuinely GAULHOFER!
NATURELINE. 100% NATURE:
GAULHOFER has transformed the qualities of wood to a new dimension. GAULHOFER's NATURELINE incorporates superior window technology and is made from 100% natural materials: a fusion of GAULHOFER's best strate- gies for the creation of a cozy warm atmosphere and ecologically-exemplary energy saving solutions. Overall respective depths of 92 mm and 78 mm in the high-end and standard versions provide lasting U W values, not achieved until now.

Our technologically innovative use of wood provides the best possible structural physical properties. Completely eliminating the use of PUR foams is not only an ecological plus, it also brings unbeatable advantages in terms of humidity diffusion. GAULHOFER's NATURELINE unites the advantages of state-of-the-art innovation with over 90 years of experience in the manufacture of top-quality windows.
WOOD
NATURELINE 92

GAULHOFER NATURELINE is 100 % nature. Through innovative product development, it achieves a standard UW value of 0.8 W/m2K (without the use of ecologically problematic PUR foams). The best UW value of 0.67 W/m2K is simply revolutionary.

ENERGYLINE:
MORE COMFORT,
LESS HEATING COSTS.
Being the "best energy saver", the new ENERGYLINE again sets new standards and represents the best possible choice not only for low-energy houses and passive houses. The highly stable profile with PowerDur glass fibre reinforcement does not need a steel reinforcement so that formation of a thermal bridge is prevented, correspondingly enabling a UW top value of 0.59 W/m2K (ENERGYLINE PLUS). The subtle redesign offers an elegant design, significantly slimmed appearance and larger glass surfaces also with two-wing elements. Technical innovation combined with timeless design this is the new Gaulhofer ENERGYLINE!
NEW!
UPVC
ENERGYLINE 70

The energy saver for the savings master

A slim window for a lean budget. ENERGY LINE 70 is a high quality energy saver with excellent thermal insulation. Also here, GAULHOFER replaces the conventional steel reinforcement with the innovative glass fiber reinforced plastic panel POWERDUR®. This is how first-class thermal insulating values can be achieved even with a depth of 70 mm. ENERGYLINE 70 is available in white.

UW best value: 0.75 W/m2K

Advantages...
DURABLE.
Weather resistant circumferential silicone-based seals with an additional adhesive on the outer glass perimeter create an additional barrier against external moisture.
POWERBOND.
The homogeneous and highly loadbearing PowerBond bonding of the glass and the sash frame ensures that the wing always maintains its structurally defined shape. Thanks to the new and force-fit connection at the edge it is both dimensionally stable and distortion-resistant to a high extent even if compared to other bonded systems. This solution also offers several benefits for maintenance. The bonding additionally optimises heat insulation.
THERMOSTOP AND
THERMOSTOP
PLUS.
The elaborate inside glazing ensures a warm edge. Thermally optimised glass spacers such as the standard Thermostop or the optionally available Thermostop Plus improve the heat insulation of the glass edge and counteract the annoying formation of condensate on the glass.
POWERDUR. STRONG WITHOUT STEEL! NO MORE THERMAL BRIDGES.
The PowerDur innovation, a highly stable glass fibre reinforcement, replaces the thermally disadvantageous steel reinforcement. It prevents thermal bridges and correspondingly ensures significantly improved insulation properties, increased living comfort and less heating costs. Contrary to customary steel reinforcements, the surrounding PowerDur stabiliser enables optimal screw connection at any fixation point.
UPVC
ENERGYLINE 85

Slimmer, lighter, more beautiful the new ENERGYLINE profiles. They do not use steel by standard so that they offer even improved insulation properties and UW values suitable for passive houses depending on the desired glazing version, ranging from UW 1.2 to UW 0.64 W/m2K. The wings are bonded to the glass all round so that they become highly distortion- resistant.
