[Phoenix] – December 21, 2017 – Today, Western Window Systems introduced hinged windows and a fixed window to its Series 7000 performance family of aluminum windows and moving glass walls. Designed to deliver energy efficiency and strength in a variety of weather conditions, the new window line features low U-values, glass from Cardinal IG, and a performance rating of CW-PG50. Series 7000 hinged windows — casements, awnings and, in early 2018, hoppers — will offer all-new hardware for a sleeker hinge profile and can be directly mulled to Series 7000 sliding doors, fixed window walls and (in the next few months) hinged doors for a clean overall appearance.
“These are by far the most energy-efficient window line we’ve ever created,” says Scott Gates, Western Window Systems’ president and CEO. “Together with other customizable products from our Series 7000 performance family, these new windows will radically change what architects, interior designers, and builders can do with real modern doors and windows across North America.”
Following the release of the Series 7600 Multi-Slide Door in March; the Series 7650 Sliding Glass Door in August; and the Series 7950 Bi-Fold Door and Series 7630 Window Wall in November; the Series 7670 Casement Window, Series 7660 Awning Window, and Series 7675 Fixed Window are the fifth, sixth, and seventh of 12 new aluminum product lines Western Window Systems will roll out this year and in 2018.
The Series 7000 hinged window line offers performance glass options from Cardinal IG that include laminated glass, solar- and glare-control glass, enhanced winter-performance glass, and Neat low-maintenance glass. Depending on glass selection and sill type, U-values can include .17 for a fixed window with high-performance triple-pane glass and a .32 U-value for a casement window featuring Cardinal i89 low-E, argon-filled dual-pane glass. A signature aluminum extrusion design utilizing proprietary Insulbar® technology further reduces energy consumption. Windows are NFRC-tested and comply with California’s rigorous Title 24 requirements.
For strength against the elements, Series 7000 casement, awning, and fixed windows are performance-rated at CW-PG50. A frame depth of 5.875” supports triple-pane, laminated, and security glass — essential options for noise reduction. The Series 7670 Casement, Series 7660 Awning, and Series 7675 Fixed Window are currently in testing for hurricane impact.
The Series 7000 Window Line Also Features:
- Split finish option, in which different finishes are used on opposite sides of the window
- Pre-applied Cardinal Preserve Film to protect glass during installation
- Push-out casement and awning styles
- Screening manufactured from extruded aluminum for durability (not applicable to push-out options)
- The new hinged window line is available through Western Window Systems’ custom channel
- Western Window Systems’ manufacturing facility is located in Phoenix
