Energy & Glass
Each Series 450-T is made with a custom formed thermal strut. Fleetwood designed the strut to allow the Engineering Department to fulfill the high expectation design notables
Despite numerous advancements in technology, air is still the best window frame insulator – unless you have too much. Too much air space reduces its natural thermal benefit. The Series 450-T was created with ‘convection blockers’ to maximize the natural insulation of air.
The Series 450-T offers more glass choices than any other aluminum casement window in the luxury home market. This is made possible by the number of glass depth choices and the myriad of glass offered in the industry.
Insulated glass larger than 100 square feet is available in the Series 4800-T.
Exclusive American Hardware
Proprietary Cam Handle:
The Archetype cam handle (ACH) designed for the Series 450-T is the ideal balance of minimal design and ergonomics. It features a sleek and linear handle, complemented by a rectangular strike plate. All components are constructed from high-grade stainless steel and through careful design, all fasteners are hidden. Truly, it is more akin to jewelry than window hardware and is best appreciated to the fullest when seen in person.
Proprietary Multi Point Latch:
The Archetype multi point latch (AMP) was engineered for the Series 450-T as the perfect complement to the Archetype cam handle. Made from high-grade stainless steel and crafted with care, it is a work of art.
Proprietary Butt Hinges:
In order to achieve the cube design intent, we needed to create new butt hinges (ABH) for the Series 450-T casement windows. Similar to the Series 250-T hinges, an ideal balance of minimalism and strength were achieved.
