Wideline Windows & Doors in NSW has developed a major innovation for the window industry. One that would transform the way windows and doors are installed for the future. The new window and door innovation for lightweight construction has arrived and is ready to take over.

Halo Aquashield™ is the award winning flashing system designed specifically for houses constructed in light weight cladding. If you’re building or renovating in lightweight construction Halo is the perfect solution.

What Is Halo Aquashield™?

Halo Aquashield™ is a patented, innovative solution to the age-old installation woes of the past. Halo Aquashield™ is an integrated  flashing in to the window and door itself. It is an all-inclusive, seamless technology that achieves superior performance with reduced installation costs. It offers superior moisture management and reduces air infiltration and improved energy performance.

It has been tested by NATA accredited laboratories and proven to provide higher water penetration resistance than traditional methods; Halo dramatically reduced the time it took to install aluminium windows. The system also improved the aesthetics and virtually eliminated a long-term industry headache — water penetration.

What Is Window and Door Flashing and Why Do You Need It?

Flashing is material installed around windows and doors to prevent water from entering between gaps.

Wind-driven rainwater can enter even small spaces left between the frame, or casing, of a window or the door and the siding, or trim, of the home. A lack of properly installed flashing can lead to water infiltration to inner walls that can cause wood rot and structural damage as well as insect infestation.

Proper installation of flashing around your windows and doors requires that a total barrier be formed between the window and the siding. Halo Aquashield™ is the only solution of its kind available today which effectively seals the interface between the window and adjoining wall in one seamless technology.

Benefits of Halo Aquashield

Halo Aquashield™ is designed to meet the requirements of modern building systems. It forms a continuous seal around the window or door providing the following benefits:

  • Fully Integrated Flashing to the window or door itself
  • Improved moisture management
  • Reduced air infiltration = Improved energy performance
  • Improved finish to window or door surrounds dramatically cuts down on installation time.

Window and door openings are your homes most vulnerable points when it comes to moisture management, and leakage around window frames can cause serious damage to the wall frame and internal linings.
