Weather Shield’s Contemporary Collection Is Perfectly Suited for Today’s Modern Homes

1/20/2015

Extending the appeal of the company’s architectural Premium Series™, Weather Shield® Windows & Doors’ Contemporary Collection is perfectly suited for architects, custom builders, designers and homeowners who desire sleek lines and vast options in their windows and doors for a modern home.


The Contemporary Collection is a suite of Premium Series windows and doors with narrow profile frames and sash, and stiles and rails for a more modern appearance and more exposed glass than standard Premium Series products, making Contemporary Collection products ideal for custom homes with breathtaking views. It includes direct set corner, crank and push-out casement, awning, and direct set windows, and bi-fold, lift & slide, telescoping, hinged and sliding patio doors with ergonomic hardware. The corner window has two panes of glass that meet in the corner with only a very narrow strip of wood between, allowing for a nearly seamless view. A strong aluminum internal support structure on the exterior reinforces the unit.

The Contemporary Collection combines Weather Shield’s history of master craftsmanship with extensive options and refined profiles for today’s modern custom homes," said Dave Koester, brand manager at Weather Shield. "Our Premium Series appeals to homeowners who want to highlight the warmth and character of wood in their homes. The Contemporary Collection products have more of a minimalistic appearance, streamlined hardware, and trendier interior and exterior finishes and colors. The distinct product offerings broaden Weather Shield’s appeal in the market."

The Contemporary Collection offers the same options as the Premium Series, and then some: seven interior wood choices – standard pine, Douglas fir, character alder, maple, oak, cherry and mahogany – that can be finished in one of five factory stain finishes, painted in white latex, or primed for finishing on the jobsite. The Contemporary Collection is also available in a black poly interior finish for a satiny look.  

The durable aluminum-clad exteriors are offered in 12 popular standard colors: white, cameo, tan, desert tan, Hartford green, craftsman bronze, adobe, heritage brown, brick red, grey matters, obsidian and jet black. An additional expanded palette of 45 designer colors and custom-color match are offered as well. The Contemporary Collection also includes several exterior anodized colors for a radiant metallic finish.

Contemporary Collection hardware is offered in white, tan, brushed nickel and rustic bronze.

Excellent Energy Efficiency and Thermal Performance

The casement units in the Contemporary Collection feature TriCore™ frame technology, which combines highly moisture-resistant materials, a fusion-welded sub frame, and thick, multi-chamber components to achieve new levels of energy efficiency and thermal performance. All Weather Shield products are available with energy-efficient glazing choices, such as double pane options of Zo-e-shield 5, Zo-e-shield 5 Extreme, Zo-e-shield 6, Zo-e-shield Coastal, and the triple-pane Zo-e-shield 7, Zo-e-shield SafeGuard and Zo-e-shield SafeGuard certified.
