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.
