Anodize is a clear layer that molecularly bonds to the exterior cladding of Windsor’s Pinnacle Series of wood windows, which appears metallic. The highly demanded feature has been used for years in commercial projects; however, it is quickly becoming a popular choice in residential applications.
“Anodized finish is typically used to create a contemporary or urban curb appeal in residential applications, which is an architectural appearance desired by people in all regions of the United States,” explained Eric Holm, Product Manager at Windsor Windows & Doors.
Windsor offers eight anodized colors to choose from: clear, champagne, light bronze, medium bronze, dark bronze, extra dark bronze, black and copper. The program conforms to the standards of AAMA 611 Class 1, which is the highest class, requiring the thickest layer of coating, making the finish highly durable.
Established in 1946, Windsor Windows & Doors markets Pinnacle wood windows and patio doors, Next Dimension vinyl windows and patio doors and Legend cellular PVC windows. Windsor is owned by Woodgrain Millwork, which is the largest U.S. manufacturer of prefinished mouldings and interior pine doors. Windsor now operates its divisional headquarters in West Des Moines, Iowa and has an additional manufacturing facility in Monroe, North Carolina.
In its total commitment to customers, Windsor Windows promises quality, service, responsiveness, and value.
