Crystal Windows Offers Broad Aluminum Color Palette
- Most Popular Colors Available For Aluminum Windows and Doors -

Crystal celebrates 20th year anniversary FLUSHING, NY, May 31, 2011 Crystal Window & Door Systems is pleased to offer a broad selection of popular architectural colors for its aluminum window and door products. The company's Architectural Colors guide chart highlights 20 of the national manufacturer's most frequently ordered stock, standard and special colors. The new updated Architectural Colors chart is available from Crystal's sales representatives.

Based on architectural trends and customer preferences, we have selected a broad palette of color choices to present to our customers, said Sabrina Leung, Manager of Crystal's Architectural Window Division. Because Crystal's aluminum extrusion operations use a powder coat paint process, colors can be changed out very easily and with little production interruption. This means Crystal can offer an incredible array of colors with minimal impact on order lead times.

Powder coat painting is a significantly more environmentally friendly process than traditional liquid painting. All of Crystal's powder coat paint finishes, regardless of color, meet the rigorous AAMA 2604 durability standard. Upgrading to the even more stringent AAMA 2605 standard is an option.

In addition to the basic standard colors of white and bronze, customers can choose from beige, black, dark green and many others. Crystal's most popular architectural colors range from River Rouge Red and Colonial Blue, which may complement historic and traditional properties, to Silver and Champagne (a simulated anodized look) for more contemporary architecture.

Beyond the 20 most popular colors, Crystal's capabilities for custom colors are limitless. We work with the most notable paint product suppliers, including Sherwin-Williams and PPG, said Tom Ziegler, Vice President of Operations for Crystal Extrusion Systems, the subsidiary of Crystal Windows which provides the powder coat painted aluminum material. For special unique architectural design needs, our suppliers can match virtually any color required, beyond the 20 most popular color choices displayed in our color chart. All stock and standard colors, in large orders, come without any additional charges. For smaller orders, the basic bronze and white colors are no-charge, while for other palette selections a very modest upcharge applies.
