Summary: Inovues is developing the first external window upgrade system, which not only improves the insulation and energy efficiency but also enhances the appearance and durability of existing buildings, unlike any interior solution. For a fraction of the cost of window replacement, we offer building owners the only exterior option to upgrade the inefficient single- or double-pane glass facades and windows to high-performing double- or triple-pane systems without requiring any replacement or causing business disruption.
