Advantages of Fibrex

Fibrex combines the strength and insulating value of wood with the low maintenance features of vinyl in order to create a better replacement window or door.

Fibrex is a composite material, created by mixing wood grain and a thermoplastic material. It contains 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight, much of which is reclaimed from Andersen Corporation’s wood window manufacturing facilities. This makes it an extremely sustainable material.
