The MW Aluminum 1000 Series Light Residential Window is the
first window system that was designed and manufactured by Metal
Window Corporation in 1947. It was designed as an exact replica
of a steel sash window system to be made available at
considerably less expense than its counterpart. These windows
can be manufactured with an old style special heavy sill which
keeps water off the face of the structure thus alleviating water
stains on your structure and the traditional nailing fin head of
the frame has a built in drip.
All ventilators are fully weather-stripped. Butt type hidden screw
hinges and classic style extension hinges are available. Extension
hinges have self lubricating Teflon washers that eliminate metal
to metal contact, reduce wear and assure longer life and extension
hinges are welded into the frame to assure strength and alleviate
unsightly rivets or screws. All extrusions are 6063-T5 or T6.
These windows are assembled without the use of screws and
fasteners. All corners are mitered, welded and reinforced with
corner angles. All muntin bars are welded to outer frame to form
individually glazed lites (TDL). This line of windows is now
considered a specialty line and is only available at Arcadia
Custom. All parts are kept in stock.
Design Note: These window frame sections are very light and
should only be used in smaller sizes and with single
MW Aluminum 1000 Series Windows as manufactured by Arcadia Custom:
Window members are constructed of 6063-T5 or T6 aluminum alloy
with all joints and corners welded. Frame members will be minimum
1/8" thickness, and 1" in depth. Roll-form and extruded
aluminum glazing bead is used. Stucco surrounds and nailing fins

Traditional surrounds and sills can be pressed on, welded and
sealed at the factory or standard nailing fins can be used.
Corners are mitered and welded. Hinges are constructed of

outside of window from inside of building) or butt type. Both
types of hinges are securely welded to both the frame and
ventilator. Ventilator shall be adjusted and locked shut at the
factory, and shall require no further attention until installation
of hardware. Screens are constructed of .020" nominal
thickness frame stock, and screen mesh shall be 18 X 16 gauge
