New Owners Put Imprint on New Accu-Weld Lines
Accu-Weld, the Pennsylvania manufacturer of replacement windows and doors, has introduced three new window lines developed by its new owners whom acquired the business in early 2009. The Haddon Signature Series portfolio features three new window lines, including an R-5 product designed to meet the most stringent demands for energy efficiency.
“It is with great pride that we announce these new products within the first year since our family acquired the company, combining customer feedback, a strong vision and a relentless focus on value and quality,” states John Haddon, Accu-Weld president. The Haddon Signature Series is based on a proprietary Accu-Weld profile bringing together energy efficiency, beauty and performance.
“Vertical integration enables us to tightly manage every step of the extrusion and manufacturing process," Haddon adds. "When Steven Chu, U.S. Secretary of Energy, visited our plant, it was clear to us that it was time to raise the bar on energy efficiency. Our new Eco-Green product, which qualifies at the R-5 level, is 50 percent more energy efficient than the .30/.30 standard at an affordable price.”
“After 20 years of selling windows for other manufacturers, we now have the opportunity to design and build the window we’ve always wanted," adds Larry Haddon, Accu-Weld vice president. "We’ve paid attention to the details that matter in look, performance and style. We’re thrilled to offer our dealers and customers this exciting family of super energy efficient windows.”
The new lines include Accu-Vision, designed with a 15-chamber, foam-filled frame that is beveled for enhanced appearance. Features include weatherseals treated to be resistant to mold, mildew and fungus; standard auto-locks to provide ease of function and safety enhancements; and non-structural components made from recycled materials for environmental considerations. High performance Solarban 60 insulating glass enable the line to deliver a U-Factor of .30, it is noted.
The Accu-Safe line offers the same features, as well tempered and laminated glass for increased safety and enhanced soundproofing for the urban home. The Eco-Green line incorporates triple pane glass to achieve a U-Factor of .20.
