2023 AIA Minnesota Show Recap

AIA Minnesota at the beautiful Depot in Minneapolis was well attended this year. The majority of the attendees for this year’s event were Architects, architectural designers, interior designers, planners, contractors, manufacturers, and a number of students.

The event featured trends, new technologies in building products, opportunities to earn continuing education credits, presentations and more. The Strutter team was proud to be a part of it!

Some of the most interesting new technologies we saw at the conference included switchable glass, new products featuring retractable screens, and of course, the all-new Strutter Pass-through awning window!

We really enjoyed the genuine interest and attention we received on the Strutter Window and wanted to elaborate on a few of the most common questions we received while exhibiting at the event.

  1. How large can the window be?
    1. 10’ x 4’ for a standard window, larger sizes can be custom engineered or multiple Strutter Windows can be installed in a row.
  2. Is the Strutter Window designed for indoor or outdoor use?
    1. Both, common interior applications include school bookstores, IT departments, car dealership service departments, and even concessions. Outdoor uses are commonly bars and restaurants, pools, patios, golf courses and amenity spaces.
  3. What type of glass can be used?
    1. Any glass that can go into a storefront frame or window. This would include monolithic, insulated, tinted, frosted glass etc.
  4. Does the window lock?
    1. Yes, almost any hardware you can put on a commercial storefront door, we can include in your Strutter Window.

In summary, we at Strutter Window really enjoyed meeting all of the new people and our shared interest in Architectural trends in the US. Thank you to those that were able to stop by our booth and don’t hesitate to reach out with any additional questions on the Strutter Window!
