WINDOWS FABRICATION GUIDE

    Standard duty - The standard duty line of fixed windows is designed for applications requiring small size and light glazing. The most common application for these windows are lower cabin, aft bulkhead, and pilot or wheelhouse's. These windows are commonly used for small commercial and recreational passenger vessels, ranging from small to medium sized river tugs, patrol boats, pilot vessels and pleasure crafts up to 30 feet in length. They are also used on tour vessels and inland ferries. They are available in mitered or radius corner styles.

    The Standard duty line of sliding windows is designed for applications requiring less than 7 square feet of window area. These windows provide maximum ventilation when open, and become weathertight when closed. They can be fabricated in mitered or radius corner styles and are also available with optional screens and interior finish rings. See ordering information for available shapes and design considerations.

    Medium duty - The medium duty line of fixed windows is similar to the standard duty line of windows but designed to meet more demanding applications. The heavier frames permit glazing up to 3/8" allowing these windows to withstand some of the toughest ocean going conditions. They are intended for use on larger commercial vessels and large luxury motor yachts. They are available in mitered or radius corner styles.

    The medium duty line of sliding windows is designed for applications requiring greater window area and/or increased strength for larger vessels 30 feet and over. The heavier gage dual track sliding windows are also commonly used on large motor yachts, government and commercial vessels. They provide maximum ventilation when open, and become weather tight when closed. Heavy duty, self locking lock system provides for a strong secure close in the locked position. Specially located flip locks mounted on the inside sill secures the sliders in the open position. They can be fabricated in mitered or radius corner styles and are available with optional screens and interior finish rings. See ordering information for available shapes and design considerations.

    Heavy duty - The heavy duty line of fixed windows is our strongest and most durable extruded aluminum window. They are designed to meet the most demanding applications in any marine environment. From the north sea to the Antarctic oceans the heavy duty line has proven its superiority over other windows in its class. These heavy gage aluminum bolt-on series of windows are commonly used on the larger trans ocean vessels. They are available in mitered or radius corner styles.

    The heavy duty line of our three track horizontal sliding windows are commonly used on large motor yachts for large cabin or salon side windows. These windows can only be used in applications where the bulkhead is greater than 2 inches in thickness. These windows come standard with a bolt on, self finishing trim ring that is part of the basic window structure. See ordering information for available shapes and design considerations.
