herry Hill, NJ — Crystal Window & Door Systems, the
award winning national man- ufacturer, has completed the initial phase of supplying new energy efficient products for the Towers of Windsor Park, located at 3005 Chapel Ave. in Cherry Hill. Window and glass balcony door replace- ments at The Toledo apart- ment building in the complex have recently been completed. Work on the second apartment building at The Towers of Windsor Park, The Kyoto, for which Crystal will also be sup- plying products, is beginning. In total Crystal will provide more than 1,300 windows and almost 500 sliding and swing glass balcony doors for the residential complex. The high-rise Windsor Park residential property consists of two 13-story buildings with 525 rental apartments and many amenities. National property management firm Morgan Properties, head- quartered in King of Prussia, PA, manages The Towers of Windsor Park. Therm-All Window & Door Company of Horsham, PA provided the window replacement installa- tion services for the project. “Morgan Properties invited Crystal to bid on this replace- ment project after seeing Crystal’s products firsthand at a regional trade exhibition,” noted Steven Yu, Crystal’s regional sales manager. “They were impressed with the en- ergy efficient performance and durable construction of our products and selected one of our most popular commercial windows, the Series CTS 2300 sliding aluminumwindow, for Windsor Park.” The Crystal Series CTS 2300 two- and three-lite slid- ing windows feature 3-¼” frame depth with 7/8” dual glazed insulating glass units and an AAMA performance rating of HS-C50. Full height pull handles and corrosion- resistant two-wheel brass rollers on the new window sashes assure the Windsor Park tenants of easy, trouble free operation. The new large sliding windows replace the building’s existing multiple double-hung windows, im- proving views and admitting more daylight. The aluminum frame glass doors used on the Cherry Hill project balconies are the

house renovation for the ‘Flip This House’ show,” said Yu. The Crystal Series 200 vinyl windows used on the “Flip- ping Boston” project feature strong, multi-chambered ex- trusions, 3-¼” jamb depth and full-welded sash and frame corners. The double-hung windows boast a distinctive and stylish curved exterior profile and clean, modern inte- rior lines. The Series 200 fea- tures a ⅞” insulating glass unit (IGU) with dual-glazing, and optional between-the-glass colonial grids. For this TV network project, an advanced PPG Solarban 70 low-E coat- ing and argon gas filling were specified for superior energy performance. Crystal’s stan- dard Series 200 double-hung windows are Energy Star® qualified, and as specified for this project, the windows are certified by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) as a “GreenApproved Product.” n
Crystal Series 1240 Sliding Patio Door and Series 1400 Swing Terrace Door. The Series 1240 Sliding Door has a 4-½” frame depth and 1” tempered insulating glass unit. The door’s heavy-duty adjustable dual tandem ball bearing rollers, strong latch handle, fibermesh screen and AAMA SGD-C40 rating provide comfort, convenience and performance. The 3-¼” jamb depth Crystal Series 1400 Swing Door boasts extra strong 0.125” thick alumi- num extrusion profiles, a 1” tempered insulating glass unit and a heavy-commercial AAMA performance rating of HGC-HC50. A polyamide “I-Bar” thermal break frame, an opening limit bar, and a multi-point handle oper- ated lock provide excellent safety, energy performance and sound reduction for the terrace door. “In addition to strength
and beauty, the Crystal prod- ucts used for The Towers at Windsor Park project brought environmental responsibil- ity to the forefront,” said Bill Rennar, Crystal’s account ex- ecutive for the project. “Every window and door was finished with Crystal’s standard high- performance, environmen- tally sustainable AAMA 2604 powder coat paint and each insulating glass unit incor- porated energy performance enhancing low-E coatings and argon gas filling. The building owner will definitely see en- ergy savings and enjoy many maintenance-free years with the new Crystal windows and doors.” Optional face flange frames were used for all the products to speed installation, minimizing inconvenience for residents of the building.
