is another Rocky Mountain Westy product that was inspired by one of our loyal
customers. He wanted an economical way to eliminate his windows. We volunteered
for the project and this is the end result. The approach here was keep it
simple and versatile.
We measured the thickness of the glass and
sourced Aluminum sheet that was a very close match. The idea here was to be
able to simply install it using the factory method and the factory seal. The
replacement panels are 3/16th inch thick, a smidgen thicker than the glass. Get
out a ruler and see what 3/16th is, it is a lot thicker than it sounds. When
you hold these panels in your hands, they feel substantial and we would be very
surprised if we didn't get a "Wow" comment when you unpack them. We
manufacture these in house by using a CNC program cut program on our Plasma
cutter and then sanding and cleaning the edges.
We intentionally did non coat or prep these for
several reasons. We figured customers may want to paint these body color. The
other nice part about Aluminum is it doesn't rust. They could be left raw. We
also envision the DIY crowd using these panels and customizing their own ideas.
You could cut holes in it to mount a fan or and A/C unit. You could drill holes
and mount accessories on them as well. So the customer will be responsible to
finish them the way they want or just install them raw. These panels have not
been finished therefore they
may have scratches, scuff or minor imperfections from
the manufacturing process.
