Royal Building Products Introduces Altitude Commercial Window SeriesWOODBRIDGE, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 20, 2014-- Royal Building Products today announced the introduction of the Altitude Window series, a new window platform designed to provide commercial window and door manufacturers with access to new markets. Altitude achieves NAFS-08 CW (Commercial Window) classification, designating its use in mid-rise multi-family, institutional and commercial applications. The multiple window styles available -- casement, awning, fixed and hopper – coupled with its mulling capabilities allow design flexibility.
“What separates the Altitude window from others on the market is the hybrid technology of extruded aluminum profiles on the exposed surfaces that connect to a thermal insulation system in the window’s core,” said Chris Bitsakakis, vice president and general manager of Royal Building Products Window and Door Profiles business. He explained that Altitude’s design combines the strength of an aluminum surface with superior thermal performing core.
“Window and door manufacturers are looking for innovative technology to meet strict industry standards and the NAFS-08 Commercial Window code requirements,” Bitsakakis said. “Our Altitude Window meets these requirements as well as commercial market needs for installation flexibility, performance and architectural design.”
Frames are 4-9/16” or 6” depth. Sashes are 2-7/8” and accept 1” glazing.
