Andersen

The A-Series of windows and patio doors provide the broadest range of colors and design options ever available from Andersen, and is the most energy-efficient line of windows and doors the company has ever produced, it reports. Products are available in three interior wood species, nine prefinished interiors and 11 standard exterior colors for windows and doors. The line also features a complementary trim system, including six profiles to match any architectural style. Available in 11 colors to match or contrast with a home’s color scheme, the trim is made of Fibrex, Andersen’s wood fiber and vinyl composite material, and is pre-fabricated by the manufacturer to snap-on in just minutes.

The 100 Series window line combines environmentally responsible and third-party-certified construction, economical pricing, and energy-saving performance. Recycled content is certified by Scientific Certification Systems and ranges from a minimum of 18 to 24 percent pre-consumer recycled glass and wood fiber content for an NFRC-rated standard window size. Andersen does this by using its Fibrex material, a structural composite that blends the best attributes of sawdust and polymer—much of it reclaimed directly from the company’s manufacturing plant operations, it reports. Tailored to the likes and needs of builders in the West, the line features a clean, contemporary design and includes single-hung, gliding, casement, awning and specialty fixed styles in more than 1,200 sizes. Options include four exterior colors, SmartSun or standard low-E glass, and Finelight grilles-between-the-glass.

Intelligent Estimate, a free software tool from Andersen, delivers fast, detailed and accurate construction estimates for trade professionals. Covering all product categories—not just windows and doors—the software helps contractors create project estimates, proposals, requests for bid, purchase and work orders, labor reports, material lists and other project documents. It also features several tools to help builders and remodelers better manage jobs and increase productivity. Available at andersenwindows.com/intelligentestimate, pre-loaded with construction item lists and cost information, the software is updated regularly so contractors have the most current information available. Navigation follows the order of a construction job and all user data is stored online for increased data security and universal access from any computer.

Endura Products

The Multi-Point Locking Astragal stops air and water infiltration by preventing door deflection inherent in traditional double-bore applications. A single-stroke, flip-lever action secures the top and bottom flush bolts in one smooth motion, while the deadbolt engages the active door with the top, middle, and bottom of the astragal, creating a French door system secured in five fortified points. Eliminating the expense and hassle of traditional multipoint hardware and extensive rework required on doors, the astragal product requires no additional hardware or extensive machining. From Endura Products, the unit operates off of standard lockset deadbolt packages to allow for easy installation and retrofit on existing doors.

 

Endura also introduced the Flip Lever Upgrade as an option to the Ultimate Astragal product line. The option adds simplicity to the bolt engagement by operating both top and bottom flush bolts in one easy motion, while also making the product ADA compliant, the company reports. Opening up the inactive door panel is easier, as it requires no more bending over to unlock and push up the bottom bolt or reaching up to pull down the top bolt.
