The MW Aluminum 2000 Series Heavy Commercial Windows are ideal for residential, commercial, school, hospital, mixed use and industrial projects using 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 a 3/16" thick aluminum corner key 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 2000 Heavy Commercial 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 system is used where larger windows are required.
