The MW Aluminum 1500 Series Windows are ideal for residential,
commercial, school, hospital, mixed use and industrial projects
using moderate sized fixed, projected or casement windows. All
ventilators are fully weather-stripped. MWC butt hinges are
welded to frames to assure strength and alleviate unsightly
rivets and screws. All extrusions are 6063-T6 or T5. Windows are
assembled without the use of screws or fasteners. Frames and
ventilators corners are mitered, reinforced with 3/16"
thick aluminum crimped and welded. All muntins are mortised and
welded into the frame to form true divided lites (TDL).
All windows have been tested and certified by a recognized testing
laboratory to AAMA and NFRC standards. Our MW Aluminum 1500 Series
Windows will accommodate glazing thicknesses from 3/16" up to
1". Several muntins choices are available to accommodate
various heights, aesthetics and structural specifications. Glazing
stops are square as standard and some slope stops options are also
available to simulate the look of traditional style putty glazed
window and door products. TDL and sloped stops are popular in
Architectural renovations or neighborhoods and communities that
require submissions to Architectural Review Boards. This is our
most popular window system.
