MikronWood® 1700 Window System
For the look and feel of wood framing with the advantages of a high-performance composite, the MikronWood® 1700 Window System is ideal for new construction. With optional real wood veneer, this advanced system can be laminated to the window interior, showcasing the warmth and beauty of natural wood.
The solid-core material—a unique blend of thermoplastic alloy resins—delivers increased thermal performance and eliminates moisture absorption, preventing damage caused by rot, mold and insects.
MikronWood is ideal for both extreme cold and high-heat environments, and offers superior thermal performance over competitive frame materials, including hollow PVC, aluminum, fiberglass and wood. Additionally, manufacturers can enjoy MikronWood’s highly stable, solid composition that saws and mills just like wood—with no need for costly diamond-tipped blades, pre-drilling, corner keys, caulking or related cleanup.
The MikronWood 1700 System is made specifically for new construction, featuring a 4-9/16" frame depth to accommodate 7/8" insulating glass (IG) units.
