Getting Your New Strutter Window

How do you ship the Strutter Window?

When it comes to shipping, the team at Strutter Window does everything it can to make it successful and painless with proper crating, quality-control, and coordinating delivery.


To be able to ship to all 50 States, we have put a strong focus on proper crating.  In the custom sized wood crate, we install the Strutter Window to make sure its properly anchored so it won’t get damaged in transportation. This also gives the customer a good example of how it should look once they complete their install.

Once the Strutter Window is installed in the crate, we then verify it functions properly.


Then we take the struts off and package them neatly with the stops, handle, and any other accessories for the journey.

Finally we close it all up using screws and plywood for maximum protection and easy unpacking as it awaits pick-up.

Arranging your own shipping or picking up your Strutter Window is also an option if that’s preferred.

Three Ways to Open up with The Strutter Window


3 Ways to Open up with a Strutter Window

What is a Strutter Window?

The Strutter Window is a high-quality service window that is sure to draw attention! For designers and architects that want to create that one-of-a-kind feel for any space, this is a must have.  The Strutter Window is a gas strut pass-thru awning window that is fully customizable, low maintenance, and easy to operate. It is commercial grade, yet it’s plug-and-play for your existing space or for a new build project. We say “open up” because that is how a Strutter Window works, it opens up to the outside, doubling as an awning while also avoiding the dusty mess a roll-up door or window can create. So how can Strutter’s pass-thru awning window open things up for your home or business?

Strutter Windows for Bars and Restaurants

Strutter’s pass-thru awning window truly honors form and function when it comes to your bar or restaurant. For your new build or existing space, you now can easily go from a 3-sided bar to a 4-sided bar! This will make your servers and patrons alike happy as your drinks and food are more accessible for everyone, and that is just one benefit. It also meshes the beauty of the outdoors and ambiance of indoors when you open up your Strutter Window. Many bars and restaurants invest heavily in patios and other ways for patrons to enjoy the outside, now you can enhance those investments without breaking the bank.

The expo also offered some great variety in topics such as best practices in making connections, and even took a humorous approach offering the good, the bad, and the ugly of connecting. Then there were presentations on things like, ERTC, improving cash flow, bird-friendly glazing and more.

Strutter Window at Mizzy’s Pizza

Strutter Window at Mizzy's Pizza

Mizzy’s Pizza is owned and operated by Carver residents Jeff and DeAnn Misgen. They’ve been making great pizza for over 19 years and their restaurant continues to expand and grow due to their love of serving people. At their new Carver location, Mizzy’s wanted to have the ability to serve patrons inside or outside of the restaurant from the bar, so they turned to Strutter to make that dream a reality.

In a recent article by Audra Grigus, Jeff said, “I think our biggest advantage is that we’re independent, we’re nimble, we can pivot on a dime, because we don’t report to corporate, we don’t report to a franchise.” That opened up the opportunity for Strutter to come in and help make Mizzy’s more accessible for patrons to enjoy a pizza and their favorite beverage.

With over 60 employees, Mizzy’s has to be able to get to customers quickly and satisfy the demand of their thirsty guests, The Strutter window was the perfect compliment. Mizzy’s quickly decided to add The Strutter window to their new building and the added sleekness and simplicity of The Strutter window made the decision an easy one.  Jeff added, “We actually have customers coming in asking for the windows to be open, we are excited to offer this to our customers in Carver!”

Strutter’s commitment to delivering high quality, the latest in customization, paired with timely delivery allowed Mizzy’s to capitalize on the growth they were seeing. Ultimately Strutter’s Pass-thru awning window was able to help Mizzy’s go from a 3 sided bar to a 4 sided bar quickly and conveniently. We were happy to be a part of the project and don’t mind stopping by for a pie and beverage ourselves! Thanks Mizzy’s for trusting Strutter and congrats on your continued growth and evolution of your already amazing space!
