Aesthetically, our security windows will look exactly like the rest of the windows — provided that’s the goal.
Structurally they will be much different than a mass-market window. Most windows are made with aluminum frames, but ours are made with steel. Steel is stronger and much more likely to withstand determined intruders, as well as harsh weather conditions.
We can cover the window frame in anything you want, whether it’s wood composite or hardwood. From there, the covering can either be painted or stained accordingly.
Architects may need to make adjustments because of the depth of the frame, as well as the weight of the window. The depth will vary depending on the type of certifications required (ballistic windows can get very thick).
The weight is likely to be greater than a normal window simply because of the steel frame, but the type of glass inserted in the frame may also play a role.
