Elegant enough to call them yours.
Tough enough to call them ours.

To say we’re proud of our projection windows would be an understatement. With specialized construction details and manufacturing advances to ensure they live up to our stringent reputation for outstanding quality, Bay and Bow windows from Wincore® provide beauty and lifetime dependability. Both Bay and Bow windows can be created from a combination of Double Hung, Picture and Casement window styles. Whether it is a traditional Bay window or dramatic five-lite Bow window, each is built to custom size specifications and offers a variety of options to showcase style and individuality.

Bay and Bow Windows offer expanded views of outdoor spaces, while creating inviting areas for sitting and relaxing. Because of their projected design, Bay and Bow windows welcome more natural light and seemingly expanded interior spaces. Outside projection windows add dimension for enhanced curb appeal to your home’s exterior.

Energy Efficiency

All insert window units inside Bay and Bow frames are foam-wrapped for premier insulation. In addition, double-strength, Low E glass with Argon gas inside the insulating glass units maximizes energy efficiency. Bay and Bow Windows also feature a unique insulated sill design to help them achieve a high R insulating value.

Double Strength Glass is standard on 7700 Series windows, optional on 5400 Series.

Standard Features

Size Customization

All projection windows are custom built to exact specifications. Bay windows can be ordered in 30- or 45-degree angles. Bow windows can be three, four or five windows mulled together at 10-degree angles.

Edge Banding

For professional looking installation, premium edge banding covers unfinished plywood edges to allow interior casing to be installed with a reveal.

Real Wood Trim

The interior wood moldings break up the bland commercial appearance of similar vinyl trimmed units by adding warmth and craftsmanship.

Knee Braces

For added support and a traditional exterior appearance, each window comes with primed knee braces.

Premium Grade Hardwood

Plywood Construction Head, seat and jambs feature furniture-grade 1-1/4″ hardwood veneer plywood in either Red Oak (for staining) or Birch (for painting).

Premium Hanger Kit

Every Wincore Bay and Bow window comes standard with an industry leading cable hanger system. Each hanger kit is ATI tested to hold 3000 lbs. of load with zero slipping of the cable or sag of the window. When combined with our unmatched frame construction this hanger system will assure that your new window remains a long-lasting, trouble free addition to your home.

Design Features

Solid LSL® Mullions & Continuous All-Thread Construction

LSL® mullions are stronger than standard wood and will not warp or twist, adding unprecedented structural stability. In addition, the LSL® mullions have an all-thread connection running through them from top to bottom. This creates a super strong connection and eliminates the potential for a sagging seat board over time.

Offset Insulated Sill Design

A 1-1/2” insulated panel is attached to the hardwood plywood seat board to create a 2-3/4” sill with a high R insulating value. In addition, the offset sill design creates an overhang that deflects water away from the unit. The appearance of this design greatly enhances the aesthetic value of any projection window.

Seamless Nose Molding & Snap Design

Fabrication of the head and sill vinyl cladding provides projection windows with a seamless and water-tight exterior cladding. The moldings consist of a two-part snap system that prevents water penetration at the sill and eliminates the need for exposed sealant in both areas.

Rabbet Connection of Jambs

To increase overall structural integrity and product stability during shipment, jamb boards feature rabbet connections to the head and sill.

Continuous All-Thread Rods

Ordinarily, projection windows are constructed using hollow vinyl mullions and an all-thread, or a solid wood mullion connected by lag bolts, screws or clips. Our Bay and Bow windows are manufactured with both solid wood mullions and a continuous all-thread rod running through the mullion. This continuous all-thread construction is a strong and stable connection that prevents warping or sagging of the window frame over time. In addition, it also minimizes condensation problems commonly associated with vinyl mullions.
