Architectural Windows

Our 1500 Series is available in a vast array of shapes and sizes. Triangles, trapezoids, octagons, circles, 1/2 rounds, extended chords and cathedral tops, just to name a few. Generally speaking, the term architectural refers to a fixed window in a shape other than square or rectangle. We are well on our way to changing that definition. Polar Bear now offers round top or reverse bend casements as well as arch top single hung.

If you have something specific in mind, ask us, we can help.

Also, the offset crank and ability to open to a full 90 degrees will help ease the burden of window washing, allowing the consumer to wash the outside glass from inside the home. With the operating sash being the majority of the surface area, a casement window is also the best option where unobstructed view and ventilation are the primary concerns.

With an identical frame and sash profile, the awning will offer the same benefits and features as a casement, triple weather seals, unobstructed view and security etc. It does not provide as much ventilation as a casement but it performs very well in certain applications.
