For over 33 years, Optimum has been creating works

of art. Its' through our Artisans on the shop floor and our
extensive testing, research and development that we
have been able to pioneer some firsts in the Steel
Window industry, such as:
• Powder coating finishes
• Extruded silicone weather stripping
• Multi-point locks for both windows and doors
• Thermally broken steel
We have been able to adapt to an ever-evolving world
that continues to present us with new challenges. Energy
efficiency is at the forefront of our goals, as well as
sustainability, recycling and reducing unnecessary
waste. By applying advanced, environmentally-friendly
paint finishes, new gasket technology and the use of
multi-point locks as a standard, Optimum has raised the
bar in energy-efficiency and overall window and door
performance in the Steel Window industry. All of our
rolled, formed products are produced from 100%
recycled steel, allowing Optimum to proudly participate
in conserving our world’s natural resources. Due to its
inherit strength and durability, custom projects utilizing
steel outperform all other window and door framing
material (vinyl, wood and aluminum).
You no longer have to pay more for custom-made steel
windows and doors. Optimum’s products are competitively priced and are produced in a timely manner. This
combination allows for the dreams of designers and
architects to become a reality.

Optimum’s Reliant Line of Steel Windows and Doors offers
reliability and versatility. These characteristics are key when
designing a project. These series have been used in countless
applications, ranging from high-end homes to commercial and even
industrial applications. One major quality associated with our units are
their narrow sight lines. Architects have incorporated this attribute into
all aspects of the building process for over a hundred years and have
designed the seamlessness and grace of steel windows into countless
architectural styles. The system’s large opening casements and slim
frame make it particularly popular amongst conservationists and even
planners as well. This advantage allows the use of immense glass lites,
often in spectacular openings, whilst maintaining narrow sight lines.
The look is not simply distinctive, it is also unique. Our steel windows
and doors have been selected for use in the most contemporary of
settings, as well as traditional, ranging to even Gothic structures.
No other steel window system can offer such an extensive range of
sections as well as the variety of options for factory-applied-corrosioninhibiting-finishes' including galvanizing, E-coating (electro-coat)
primer, powder coatings, urethane enamels and more. In addition,
we offer countless styles of hardware options that allow the designer
an opportunity to create unique custom styles.
Optimum is proud to say that our hot-rolled steel windows are
manufactured from 100% recycled steel. These windows and doors
are inherently more durable than almost any alternative material used
in construction, their life-cycle is unsurpassed. The environmental
benefits of using recycled steel can be found on the steel website at
www.recycle-steel.org

Optimum has revolutionized the construction industry by offering
the most comprehensive line of steel fire-rated windows. Today,
we are the largest and most efficient manufacturer in our field,
with fire-ratings ranging from 45 to 60 minutes; all the way up to
90 minutes. Optimum’s multiple window and door series are
used in non-temperature rise applications and through the us of
various glazing options, can be modified to address applications
such as:
• Thermal performance (insulated glass)
• Impact resistance (Category II)
• Sound transmission
• Ballistics

FR6000

All window and door series can be installed in both interior and
exterior applications and are fully tested and listed by UL (Underwriters Laboratories). Optimum’s fire-rated windows and doors
are MEA approved for use in the City of New York.
Optimum’s windows and doors are produced from 100% recycled
steel. With the exception of the FR4700, the fire-rated series is galvanized and then undergoes through a rigorous 7 stage pre-treatment. They are then primed and painted with electro-statically
applied powder, a process considered an environmentally
friendly finishing process, with a focus on reducing waste. All units
come in a variety of standard colors as well as custom options. All
windows and doors are shipped completely finished (assembled,
painted and glazed), reducing and/or eliminating additional
labor on site.

For over 16 years, Optimum Window has been manufacturing
custom tilt and turn windows and terrace doors. We have been
committed to utilizing the latest in thermal technologies, such as
insulating struts; commonly known as a thermal break. As energy
costs continue to rise, thermal performance is more important than
ever. It remains equally important to maintain structural integrity
and the architect’s aesthetic vision. As such, the struts utilized
provide more thermal, structural and aesthetic benefits than any
other thermal break system, delivering unmatched flexibility for
system design.
