Custom Architectural Windows
J. Sussman, Inc. windows can be produced in virtually any shape or size, with or without thermal breaks and with true muntins. They can be configured with combinations of fixed, projected and casements. Please see our Typical Elevations page for a representation of what we offer.
J. Sussman, Inc. has dual finishing capability. This means that our architectural window systems can be a different finish on the interior and exterior. J. Sussman, Inc. is able to do this utilizing our in-house Thermal Strip Technology. Two different aluminum extrusions are finished independent of each other and then joined together with two 6/6 polyamide nylon thermal strips. Besides being thermally efficient, these high strength strips have the same coefficient of expansion as aluminum so that dry shrinkage is eliminated and the structural integrity of the window is intact. This eliminates some of the issues with the dated “pour in the bridge” thermal break system and provides an element of added strength.
Besides the standard architectural window (4200 Series), J. Sussman has a Historic/Replication window system (4600 Series). The 4200 Series has a beveled exterior to replicate the appearance of steel putty glazed windows. This system has the traditional look of steel but with all the benefits of an aluminum frame.
The 4800 Series has equal site lines for both vent and fixed lites. This makes the ventilators concealed and indistinguishable from the fixed lites, offering a slim and tidy appearance.
