The Ultimate in High Performance
REHAU System 4500 tilt-turn hopper and fixed windows were installed throughout The Morgan’s residential units and common spaces. The windows were selected for their exceptional energy efficiency and sound abatement properties, as well as their improved cost effectiveness when compared to traditional aluminum. In addition, the modern and welcoming appearance of the vinyl profiles aligned well with The Morgan’s hip, friendly look and feel.

The System 4500 tilt-turn design allows the window to operate in either a tilt or turn position, offering three separate functions in one window: traditional casement look in the turn position, convenient top ventilation in the tilt position, and elegant picture window when closed. The System 4500 window and door design offers the ultimate in high performance.

Features include:

– Compression seal sash with two weather seals
– Multi-point locking hardware
– Superior sound abatement properties
– Ability to build awning and hopper styles
– Provides secure ventilation
– Reduces heat loss and noise filtration
– Provides a warmer, more comfortable living space
