A ‘Reinvented’ Weather Shield Unveils Product Innovations

8/3/2012
As part of its “ReInvented” campaign, Weather Shield Windows & Doors shared details of product innovations that it will incorporate into its soon-to-be-introduced product lines. These advancements in products’ foundational technology, combined with three new product lines and an improvement in the company’s overall value proposition, encompass the Weather Shield ReInvented campaign.

“These product innovations raise the bar on thermal efficiency, air and water performance, and aesthetics for the fenestration industry,” said Mark Schield, vice president of Weather Shield. “We looked closely at our windows, evaluating every possible improvement to gain energy efficiency and a better overall appearance. I’m really pleased with the results and believe builders, remodelers and homeowners alike will appreciate the improvements.”

Symmetry Balance System™
Double hung windows on Weather Shield’s new and existing product lines will deliver higher performance ratings than its current units, while delivering the superior aesthetics. The new double hungs will be among the only units in the industry to achieve a Class 3 AAMA rating, largely due to the new Symmetry Balance System, a combination of coil balance technology and an all-new jambliner. Together, they deliver outstanding operational performance and superior resistance to air and water infiltration. The Symmetry Balance System allows units to operate smoothly and with little effort, even in units with triple pane glass. Weather Shield is the only wood window manufacturer currently offering this technology.

The new double hungs stand out aesthetically as well. With either the standard vinyl jambliner or an all-new wood jambliner, the units feature superb architectural details and clean sightlines, whether admiring the window or the view through the window.

 

TriCore™ Frame Technology
To improve thermal performance and weather resistance on casements, awnings and select picture windows, Weather Shield will use its new TriCore frame technology, a fusion-welded sub frame that enables the combination of multiple materials into a single window frame. TriCore frame technology creates a thermal barrier preventing the transfer of heat or cold to the inside of a building. Highly moisture-resistant materials, the fusion-welded sub frame, and the thick, multi-chamber sub frame components all work together to reduce weathering, virtually eliminate water infiltration and improve structural performance.

New Products
In the coming weeks, Weather Shield will unveil three new product lines for distinct market segments:

  • An architectural product line of high-end aluminum clad wood windows and patio doors for premier custom homes, featuring improved performance and traditional, architecturally correct aesthetics.
  • A mid-price product line of aluminum clad wood windows and patio doors, delivering affordable luxury with features and options that surpass typical in mid-priced wood windows. This is a new product category for the Weather Shield brand.
  • An entry-level offering of vinyl clad wood windows and patio doors for modest budgets.

With the product advancements and each of the new product lines, Weather Shield offers its dealers and their customers an improved value proposition.
