CGI Designer Fixed Window Series 238 Installation

The CGI Commercial Collection designer fixed impact windows are available in a variety of different shapes and styles. The look of these custom window designs add beauty and styling to your home, giving it a truly unique appearance. Our Estate designer windows have been designed with consistent and even sightlines to match our casement, project-out and rectangular fixed windows and are constructed with a separate vent and frame design. There are less expensive ways of manufacturing a fixed hurricane window, but consistent with CGI’s heritage our Estate designer windows have been designed to provide a strong, high quality and aesthetically pleasing choice

Model Overview

Available Finishes

We offer 3 wood grain finishes in our Aspen Collection- Mahogany Red, Walnut Brown, and Hazelnut Brown. The Aspen Collection of simulated finishes is based on a unique patented wood grain painting process from Decoral. The Decoral finish is created using a two-step process combining a powder coat base with ink sublimation and was originally commercialized in 1996.

Our Aspen Collection of premium wood grain finished windows and doors are constructed out of the same high-quality commercial-grade aluminum as our standard finishes. Every window and door is produced to our exacting, best in class standards. The Aspen Collection finishes are backed by a five-year warranty. Simulated woodgrain finishes by nature are designed to imitate real wood, and therefore will exhibit color variability. This is not considered to be a defect in the product.

Note: that it is typical for anodized finishes to have color variation and dye and processing marks that occur during manufacturing. These are not considered defects or covered under the warranty.

Glass Colors

Glass Types:

  • 7/16” Laminated
  • 3/4” Insulated Laminated

Glass Coatings:

Energy efficient Lo-E options

Note: Lo E coatings exhibit certain color characteristics depending on viewing angles, reflected light and time of day. For example, Cardinal LoE 366 exhibits a greenish hue. When Clear glass is coupled with a LoE 366 coating, during certain times of the day the reflected color can appear green from the outside. This LoE 366 coating offers an excellent combination of thermal performance, visible light transmittance, and value. When heat strengthened glass is used, roller wave distortion is an inherent possibility.
