Bonded Frameless Windows from Lippert Components® Gaining Popularity
Bonded Frameless Windows from Lippert Components® Gaining Popularity Goshen, Ind. - Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®), reports growing use of its bonded, frameless windows in travel trailer and fifth-wheel recreational vehicle designs during the last 12 months.
“It’s all about styling with this product line,” said LCI Vice President of Sales Andy Murray. “Bonded frameless windows create a cleaner, more automotive look and cleaner lines on the outside of the RV while streamlining the sidewall.”
“Initially, the product was a high-end feature, but now it’s used on mid-priced products, and more and more on motorized products,” continued Murray. “In order to support this growing trend, LCI has made significant investments in people, facilities and equipment over the past 12 months. Some of the most notable are a 130,000 square foot dedicated frameless window facility which will include its own in-house glass processing and tempering operation, the first if its kind in our industry.”
In addition to travel trailer and fifth-wheel RV windows, LCI’s window products include:
- Truck cap windows
- Bus windows, including activity bus windows, egress activity bus windows, and electronic switch windows
- Cargo trailer windows
- Horse trailer windows including drop down feed windows, drop down insert windows, side slider windows, and living quarter windows
