Doorwin’s specialty shapes service provides you with the full custom possibility of glazing, shapes, and profiles. This service meets all special requirements regarding profiles, fram shapes, glass colors, and patterns for your unique project or specifications.
The Anjuman-e-Fakhri Masjid Mosque was built in Mississauga. The construction of the mosque was completed in 2016 and the official opening was held in December 2017.
The mosque has been fitted with Doorwin specialty shape alu-clad wood windows and doors, painted brown, all with Low-E double glazing, to suit the building style of the mosque. These specialty shape and carved glass windows were formed into a keystone arch shape and have an intricate detail of the sun and its rays, also done in solid red oak, giving the whole mosque thermal and sound insulation functions.
With the arched top and bottom rectangles, and true-divided lites, the specialty windows not only strengthened the aesthetics of the building but also made the mosque became a true home of Disciples.
In this case, we applied carved glazing (or etched glazing) on specialty shape fixed windows. By using sandblasting techniques, it is possible to cut deep into the glass. You can even blast right through the glass if this is what is required.
Sandblasted glass is always subtle, distinguished, and elegant and it is often functional. In the residential and commercial sections, you will see how it has been used for purely decorative purposes as well as for specific functions.;
As for the opening method, we provided double sashes tilt & turn windows, which are more resistant to blustery weather while maintaining functions like air-tightness, alternative ventilation way, and accessibilities; tilt and turn windows form a complete seal when fully closed, and they can be opened in the upper tilt way to ventilate at a minimum opening status, when there’s a good day, it can be opened as normal inward casement windows. This kind of design also provided a good energy-efficiency performance because of the good seaming when it closed.
Winter is cold and long in Toronto, so windows with good heat-insulation performance are a must-be. Solid wood is the best insulation profile, it is favored in many residential applications because of its appearance and traditional place in house design. From a thermal point of view, wood-framed windows perform well with frame U-factors in the range of 0.3 to 0.5 Btu/hr-sq. ft-°F. Doorwin’s all profiles are in accordance with US building codes and well selected.
But the disadvantages are also obvious, solid wood is more prone to damage and corrosion, requiring higher maintenance costs,
So, Doorwin provides the highest quality aluminum on the Wood+ series, which means solid wood is the main material while plus aluminum cladding on the exterior. The exterior cladding thus has lower maintenance requirements, while retaining the attractive wood finish on the interior. Our Aluminum cladding with an advanced seamless welding joint technique, that makes the four corners of the aluminum cladding welding smoothly and barely can be seen. Resulting in not only a stronger weld but also creating a prettier finish.
"I chose Doorwin specialty shape windows as alu-clad wood has many advantages. Besides having an energy-efficient property, alu-clad wood windows are low-maintenance, very robust and they can be painted and shaped to suit the customers' requirements," said the architect of this project.

Doorwin has been working for the North American market for a decade, we provided the most professional plan and a meaningful design with an ideal price to meet all our client’s highly customized demands. With our own expertise, we provide no-cost design development & contract documentation with CAD & BIM drawings, including elevation & details & installation design.
Before production, we will provide accurate sample drawings, which will clearly show the cross-sectional pattern, size, opening method and direction, pattern of the warm spacer, and the installation nodes. We will not go into production until you have signed off on the drawing to ensure that you receive a final product that meets the exact requirements of your project.
We export tens of millions of dollars of windows and doors to the U.S. every year, and we know that improper packaging can cause breakage of the product when it arrives on site, and the biggest loss from this is, I'm afraid, the cost of time, after all, workers on site have requirements of working time and it needs to wait for a new shipment to arrive in case of damage occurs to the goods. So, we pack each window individually and in four layers, and finally into (non-fumigated) wooden boxes, and at the same time, there will be a lot of shockproof measures in the container, to protect your products. We are very experienced in how to pack and protect our products to ensure they arrive at the sites in good condition after long-distance transportation. What the client concerns, we concern most.
The most important is the client’s satisfaction with these windows. He is so happy to show his satisfaction with these windows by saying that "The windows and doors are great. They look very nice. The finishing and workmanship are very good. Every friend and disciple who came here will appreciate them"
