Malta Windows – Catalog Expansion

Attention! Fenster Components did not purchase, acquire or take over Malta Windows! While we sympathize with your frustration, we hope you understand we have NO association with Malta Windows and can not field warranty issues. With that said…

We want to help! With Malta officially out of business, Fenster Components seeks to offer Malta’s former customers a solution to their failing windows. While we have several Malta Windows profiles available, we still have very little information on Malta products in general. However, we continue to see increased requests for profiles we have not replicated. In order to best serve our customers, knowledge is our priority. We seek sample sash of any and all wood and wood/clad sash products produced from 1978 to 2010.

We also put a call out to former sales people and distributors that may still have catalogs or specs in their possession. In addition, we seek information relating to Malta Windows’ component supply chain, specifically their cladding and weather stripping suppliers. Fenster wants to be your customer, not your competitor!

Meanwhile, we do have replicated sash profiles and replacement sash for Malta primed casements, vinyl clad double hungs, vinyl clad casements and extruded aluminum casement wood inserts. Complete assembled sashes are available for all primed units with clear or lowE glass. Knocked down “frame only” sashes are available for cladded units and primed units without glass. Unfortunately replacement cladding is not available at this time, but we’re working on it!

Fenster Components has been engineering replications of original sash profiles for most major brands since 1999. Our catalog to date boasts over 60 casement and double hung profiles and continues to grow with more nationwide customers seeking solutions to their rotting window issues. Our goal is to connect qualified window professionals to homeowners who need help as efficiently as possible.

    Hello Ryan,
    I have 18 of these Classic View Malta double hung windows in my house that was built in 1989… 🙁
    In 2008 I ordered 16 replacement Jamb Liner Kit’s
    Beige NV-11 DH Jamb-Liner Kits 5-2 DLO 26 7/8 x 27 3/8
    My question is do you or can you make these kit’s because I require 2 more..I still have documentation from that order and malta paperwork on replacement Sash Systems which I can pdf to you….Thanks Dan

      Dan, We do not have any association with Malta so their part numbers don’t help me. We do however have universal fit jamb liner kits that will probably fit your needs. I have a blog post on our site that goes into more detail on those if you want to look into that. Thanks!

    I have a customer with wood sash malta windows. I do not have any experience with this brand of window and door. She has a few broken outside paynes on different windows. Can I just replace the paynes, or do I need to replace the whole sash? Also, she has a wood framed 10-lite door in which the glass is fogged over on the inside. Can I replace the 10-lite glass with an insert, or do I need to replace the door?
    Thank you

      Jeff, Yes you can just replace the glass. We actually recommend that if rotten wood is not your issue. Glass is not brand specific so any local residential glass company can supply that for you. I don’t know much about the doors, but I would assume the same would apply.

    I need a Malta fixed double pane quarter arch white vinyl clad window to replace because of fogging. It is a Malta Series NW92. The quarter circle arch measures approx 20 3/4″ by 20 3/4″ inside glass right angle. Outside (with vinyl frame- approx 2″) is 23′ by 23″ with the arch radius connecting these two points/

    Can you replicate or find such a window? It is part of a larger window structure and I am trying to save the customer from replacing the entire unit.

    Thanks, Chris I can send picture and get more detailed measurement if needed.

      Sounds like you probably could replace the glass without replacing the unit? I wouldn’t try to make you a geo-shape piece of glass from a remote location. You’re probably better off having a local glass company come out to do that.

    I need muntins replaced for about a dozen Malta double-hung windows. These are not sealed between the glass, but are applied to the inside surface of the windows with discrete pins which fasten into the perimeter seal. Do you make these or know where I can purchase these?

    • Posted August 4, 2015 at 9:14 pm | Permalink

      Martha, Unfortunately we don’t. It takes a bunch of special equipment to make those that we don’t have. We’ve been investigating grill manufacturers for some time with little result. Most won’t sell direct to the public. As we’ve been finding out, they don’t seem to want to sell to anyone!

    We now have white vinyl cladding available for our two most popular Malta after-market replications.

    Hi I have Malta double hung windows. The bottom rail of the upper sash is rotten in two windows. The measurement of the window is 30 1/2 width and 31 6/16 height. Will I be able to replace the rotten bottom rails or do I need to buy replacement Kit.

    Please advice

    • Posted May 13, 2016 at 9:11 pm | Permalink

      It’s very common on this model of window to just have the upper parting rail go bad, without affecting the rest of the sash. Ordinarily we do NOT sell individual sash parts, but for this instance we do. Individual rails run $99 each with free shipping. The width, which you’ve specified, and the width of the glass plow is required. Malta used two different glass thicknesses. A part like this must be requested via email to sales@fensterusa.com Thank you.

    I am inquiring to ask if there are parts still available for Malta Windows. I have someone who has a house with Malta windows and two of the handles are broken off. I could send a picture of the handle and mechanism if needed. Thank you, John Amundson

      John, We don’t do much on the hardware side. What I will say is, Malta used Truth brand hardware for most of their existence. You can do a Google search for window hardware, or check out one of our partner companies online, Pickens window parts, or all about doors and windows.

    I’m having the same problem as Ramesh, do you still sell just the upper parting rail and what are the different sizes of glass. Thank you for your help. Matt

    • Posted November 3, 2017 at 12:46 pm | Permalink

      Matt, yes we do. If you think of the glass in terms of how the gasket fits in the channel, the channel is either 5/8″ wide or 3/4″ wide for 1/2″ or 5/8″ glass respectively. There is not an order form for this online, you have to email sales directly to place an order for this. sales@fensterusa.com.

      For everyone reading this, we typically do NOT do this. However, we make the exception on the Malta vinyl clad double hungs because they are fairly easy to change out and the joinery is simple enough we don’t see any issues with a retro fit.

    Hi Ryan. I read your response to Martha about the grills for the double hung windows. I have casement windows and also need replacement grills that get placed inside the window with pins. Any chance you were able to find any more information on how to replace these grills. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Sue

    • Posted March 13, 2018 at 9:36 pm | Permalink

      Sue, Sort of. We have a grill supplier we are working with. We offer “our” replacement grill when you buy a house full of windows from us. The issue here is trying to match what you had originally. I have no idea what grill profile Malta used on your model, in that year, etc. etc. Further more, neither will anyone else! That information just isn’t available to us. What we struggle to communicate to our customers is nothing is brand specific. You don’t have a “malta” grill. You have a grill that Malta bought from some supplier, some year, for some model,, etc. etc. The same grill that could have, or probably was sold to any number of other window companies at the time.

      How does this help you? It doesn’t. I get this question a lot, so I thought I would just get the information out there. We offer an “industry standard” 7/8″ wide colonial style grill profile in a full surround grill insert. That is our standard for casements that spec out wood grill inserts. So we can get you something like that.

      I can also offer you the link, http://www.bigbluewindow.com, which is the retail site for our current supplier. Thy WILL sell retail, but again, the issue is, they can’t tell you what you have or what you need. You’ll have to navigate their site, find your grill profile and place the order.

    I have a 1998 Malta double hung, vinyl clad tan window measuring 30 1/2 W x 27 3/8 H (upper sash) with a rotten bottom rail and left stile. I can’t determine the glass width yet without taking the window out and I am reluctant to try with the cold temps right now however I understand from reading you guys that Malta had two glass thicknesses. If I get the glass thickness, how much is the SRK for that sash? How effective is it to reuse the rubber glazing boot around the glass? I would worry about not getting a waterproof seal again. Third, do you offer a return policy in case something doesn’t work out? The original cladding will work on the outside and the inside stain grade? I don’t know if it might help anyone, but I do have my original work order for these windows (call sizes, rough openings, descriptions, etc.) Thank you.

    Can you tell me the what the dimensions of a 3046 Malta window? I am thinking about buying replacement windows to replace my bad Malta windows. If I decide to replace the entire window, what size window do I need to buy.

    Thank You

      Shawn, I would have no idea. That’s something you would have to measure in the field.

    I have a Malta casement window installed April/May 1985. The builder provided me with a model number 1-9151-4 for the window. According to the floor plan I have (from the builder), the window rough opening is 96″x57″.

    The window has decayed/dry rot on all four pains, along with decay/dry rot along the base of the window brick molding frame.

    I cannot find any type of replacement window pains, or other replacement window (full window replacement) that fits the rough opening.

    Does Malta still manufacture this window? If not do they have a replacement window (or something compatible) available?

    • Posted September 3, 2019 at 11:57 am | Permalink

      Hello Fred, Well Malta doesn’t produce anything. They’ve been gone since 2012. We have several Malta sash models we can do. Assuming we have a match, we can help you with replacement sash panes. Can’t help with the rotting frame parts. Carpenters typically prefer to fashion those parts on site as they make repairs. You would want to turn up someone local to make those frame repairs. You can visit our website, http://www.fensterusa.com or contact customer service at sales@fensterusa.com about those sashes.

    Are Malta windows still under warranty? If so who do you contact about warranty claims.

    Ryan, I get it – Malta is out of business and I think you’re doing a great service by fielding questions on them. So I’ll ask for your advice.
    My home has 6 twin gliders that fit in a Rough Opening of 55″Wide x 50″ high..I’ve milled new sills for a few of them but I know they will fail again. They are also drafty. I’ve looked for replacement Andersons, Marvin, Pella, etc but no one makes this size window. Do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks
    Bob

      Bob, I feel your pain. As far as wood window replacement, you’ve pretty much named the contenders with the exception of JELD-WEN. If you have a Menard’s there, you can order JELD-WEN products through them. You’re experiencing one of the major issues I try to convey to people considering whole unit replacement. It’s not just buy the new windows and having them installed; it’s the major remodeling project that comes along with. Full unit replacement is incredibly invasive to the home as you are experiencing with potential new units that are all different sizes.

      It sounds like you are doing about all you can to save them. Here’s the tough part about your particular window. We stay away from gliders (or sliders depending on your preference) because they typically are built with model specific tracks and mounting hardware that are no longer available in the market. Far different from a typical double hung or casement from the 80’s-90’s that used somewhat generic hardware that was universal to the industry and still available today. Volume is a second deterrent for us. A slider type window is more popular out west. Since we don’t extend our service reach to the western part of the country, we simply don’t get much call for slider windows.

      So basically I’m no help to you at all. I wish I could say we can do anything and everything. Some window parts are just out of our reach. Like in this case. Long term, replacing the sills a second time might still be a better (and cheaper) option than replacing them. Thanks for the interest Bob. Good luck with your windows.
