Copper and Bronze Finishes Added to Windows, Doors
At this week’s International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla., Loewen (Booth W1321) is adding copper and bronze finishes to its extensive selection of Douglas fir and mahogany windows and doors.
“The Cyprium Collection brings a timeless and environmentally responsive option to fenestration in both traditional and modern markets,” said Ray von Boven, the company’s product sales manager. “The deep profiles, hand-forged details and unique finishes enhance the individuality derived from the ‘perfect imperfection’ of a living patina. As the patina ages, residue may wash down and be visible on surfaces beneath the cladding. This is normal and adds to the classic appeal of Cyprium windows and doors.”
Named after the copper that ancient Romans first mined in Cyprus, the Cyprium Collection features copper- and bronze-clad windows and doors that are artisanal in detail, down to the soldered exterior joints and rich, tactile depth of texture in the thick metal cladding, according to the manufacturer.
The collection offers a palette of custom patinas: Natura (unpatinated), Umbra (brown) and Verdigris (green).
Nominal .040-inch-thick copper and bronze is used in the collection to craft a cladding of exceptional strength for sash and frame segments as well as for Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) bars.
The new signature collection is available in Awning, Casement, Picture and Specialty Windows, and Terrace Doors.
