Solid Wood Components


Quanex Building Products can provide mouldings for virtually every wood part of a window system, including jambs, sash and glazing stop profiles, kerfed stiles and rails, frame, radius jambs, grilles, and bow/bay roof skirts – all of which are held to our tight, exacting manufacturing tolerances.

To meet your unique needs, our engineering staff will design tools to meet your specifications using the highest quality steel or carbide for long-term consistency and ongoing moulding quality. With more than 30 species available, new species can also be obtained through our current well-established mills and new vendors that must pass an ongoing evaluation based on yield, overall quality, and on-time delivery

Window System Kits

With the help of our Mounds View facility, we offer OEMs a complete, custom, ready-to-assemble window unit, including removable or tape-applied grilles.
