Dream: Two-Color/Two-Finish Windows

Architects for years sought windows that could be one color and finish on the inside and another on the outside.

Conventional Technology

Conventional Technology: One-Piece Extrusions

Profiles using polyurethane thermal barriers utilize one aluminum extrusion, pre-painted one color and finish before the polyurethane is poured into a cavity of the extrusion.


AW Solution: Dual Finish

Thermal strut window profiles are made from separate interior and exterior extrusions. Therefore, any imaginable combination of interior and exterior finishes can be applied, from high-performance Kynar® based paints to baked-on enamel or anodized coatings.

As one of few select members of the PPG Certified Applicators Program, Architectural Window offers warrantees of up to 25 years on select finishes. Our dual-finish technology allows you to maximize performance while minimizing cost.
