Standard Product Specifications

European Architectural Supply takes great pride in providing truly custom our wood windows and doors for each individual project, and we always consider and evaluate any suitable option a customer may request.

Due to the flexibility of custom work and because of the variety of customer needs and requirements it is difficult for European Architectural Supply to define our "standard" product.

Anatomy of our Wood Windows: MW88G2
  • Sash Aluminum Drip Edge: Protects the horizontal surface of the sash, which is vulnerable to damage from water and ice that tend to accumulate at this location. Extruded aluminum drip edge is ventilated from below.
  • Glazing Ventilation: This grove is critical to ventilating any moisture that may condense along the cold zone around the insulated glazing.
  • Frame Aluminum Drip Edge: Protects the part of the frame most subjected to rain, snow and ice accumulation. Includes a drip edge, thermal break and a seal against the primary gasket.
  • Primary Gasket: The first barrier against air infiltration.
  • Window Sill Flashing Grove: Milled into the frame to provide an attachment point for sill flashing. Can be customized for wood, aluminum and cast stone sills.
  • Double-Pane Argon Filled Low-E Glass: For a total of 1' of unparalleled thermal protection. With a COG u-value of 0.19 it just does not get any better. Fifteen other types of glass are also available, including laminated and tempered glass.
  • Thermal Break: Provides a thermal break between the sealed air chamber and the aluminum, dramatically reducing the heat transfer from the metal.
  • Glazing Stop: Pre-finished for perimeter protection. Attached with invisible pins concealed under the seal. Removable for glazing repair.
  • Secondary Gasket: Omitted by most window manufacturers. Provides a true weather-tight seal.
  • Interior Sill Grove: Makes for an easy installation of the interior sill.

HARDWARE
Homeowners, architects, and industry professionals in North America are discovering the superior function of European style windows and doors. Due to their advanced functional benefits and superior construction, tilt-turn windows and doors are becoming more and more popular in North America. The tilt-turn window, engineered to withstand a century of harsh European winters, can also endure fierce coastal and island hurricanes. In fact, a properly designed tilt-turn window can satisfy the strict window manufacturing codes of Miami-Dade County, Florida.


FINISH
All of our products are pre-finished at the factory like handcrafted furniture. Our three-step finishing system will far surpass any finish that can be applied on the jobsite. Before the glazing is applied the entire window/door in dipped into a wood preservate. Next, the two finish coats are sprayed on. EAS offers 25 rich clear stains and an infinite number of solid colors. EAS uses RAL paint formulations to match any Sherwin Williams or Ben Moore solid paint colors.
