Under the glow of a full moon, deep in the Black Forest, our story begins…

That’s when the craftspeople originally set out to harvest wood for their windows. Through the generations, it was known that wood gathered in the shine of a full moon was at its most durable. At the same time, the effect of harvesting it was at its minimum.

It’s this loving spirit for wood and sustainability that continues to live in all of our hand-crafted Tanner Windows and Doors: patient, old-world precision fused with today’s cutting edge German engineering.

And since our windows and doors are still handcrafted one by one, they are offered in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes to accommodate your most creative designs and your most discerning customers.

The result is the most beautiful, high-performance windows and doors the world has ever seen. The comfort provided by these windows’ revolutionary technology is unparalleled. A new level of efficiency offers indoor comfort throughout the seasons. These windows and doors are as beautiful in their use of technology as they are in their design.

Efficiency. Comfort. Beauty. Never before have all three described windows and doors with such accuracy. And never before have they been available in the United States. Until now.

And since our windows and doors are still handcrafted one by one, they are offered in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes to accommodate your most creative designs and your most discerning customers.

Your vision. Our passion. A perfect fit.

Vitra Windows

The window of the future is here: Vitra-Premium is the leading product for the next generation of ecological and ultimate performance windows. It combines ultimate quality and performance with an elegant aesthetic.

A fully integrated sash into the window frame results in a truly modern look. From the exterior it appears frameless with mostly glazing exposure. With the integrated invisible hinge hardware, its flush, elegant interior look leaves it almost indistinguishable from an operable sash and a fixed glass.

The Vitra-Premium window system can be used for single and double French patio doors. It has an additional 3+1 seal for a total of 4 for superior air and water tightness and multi-locking hidden Tilt & Turn hardware. It incorporates a partially insulated frame and optimized cladding to mitigate thermal bridging, which are design features that meet the German Passive House Standard. Its secondary water drainage design showcases the quality of its European engineering.

Lauda Windows

The Lauda - named after the old German word for metal - in our aluminum clad wood window (and door) line, available in Standard or Premium options. The Lauda is made from the same highest quality European fir or spruce as are all Tanner windows and doors.

The Lauda window system can be used for single and double French patio doors, as well as up to seven sections of folding patio door.

Wood windows do require regular painting on the exterior. To mitigate this at the most exposed surfaces, we add aluminum flashing on top of all the horizontal window sash and frame parts.

Brooklyn Double Hung Windows

The Tanner Window and Door team developed the Brooklyn ‘Double-Hung’ window to meet the needs of New York City’s stringent Landmark historical requirements for the restorations of the Big Apple’s beloved Brooklyn Brownstones. From a round top to stained glass, mullion and very specific historical dimensions, nothing stops our craftsmen from producing the highest quality window to last for generations to come.

This fixed upper and operable lower window sash have the double hung look, but function like all the other Tilt &Turn Tanner windows. These wood windows are made from European fir, spruce or Meranti wood depending on the exterior color desired.


Brooklyn-Premium adds a wider frame along with a flush interior and hidden hinges to complete the historical esthetic in the interior. It adds a third seal and accommodates a wider range of glass options to provide ultimate comfort and performance.

Patio Doors

French Doors, Folding Doors

These patio doors are part of the window system families and can be made as ‘Holta’, ‘Lauda’ or ‘Vitra’. For max and min dimensions – please ask! As a custom shop we like to push the boundaries of possibilities. Anything we deem technically feasible we will be happy to manufacture.

French doors are typically made with the Tilt &Turn window hardware, but with a doorsill rather than a windowsill, and operate accordingly. They come as single or double sash. We can also make them entry doors by adding a lock and handle on the exterior along with a wider sash frame.

The folding patio doors can be made up to seven sections or panels wide.


Lift+Slide Door

The Lift & Slide patio doors offer the ability to move a large segment to one side or another. And the size? Our Lift & Slide Door system can be customized up to about 9x11 feet on the operable part, with the fixed glass area up to 16 feet. They can be configured as single, double or triple sash in one wall or over a corner


Entry Doors

For entry doors we typically use the frame from the respective window system combined with three choices of door systems. The same standard hardware and sill systems are used for all, with alternate options. Typically the exterior of the doors are painted wood, but can be aluminum clad.


Holta Entry Door is a 78mm flat solid insulated slab or with a semi or full lite. Lauda-Premium Entry Door is a 98mm flat solid insulted slab or with a semi or full lite that meets the German Passive House Standard.
