For the fourth consecutive year, Western Window Systems will play a major role in the NAHB International Builders’ Show, the largest builders’ show and conference in the United States, taking place January 10 through 12 in Orlando, Florida.
“For over 70 years, the NAHB has brought the best and the biggest exhibitors from all over the building industry,” says Western Window Systems president and CEO Scott Gates. “This year, Western Window Systems is building on that legacy with the introduction of a revolutionary new product and inclusions in two remarkable show homes.”
At its booth in Professional Builder magazine’s Show Village, located in the convention center’s parking lot, Western Window Systems will have corner samples on hand of its new Series 7600 Multi-Slide Door. Designed to do address energy, structural, and impact requirements while embracing contemporary design, the Series 7600 features an aluminum extrusion design utilizing proprietary Insulbar technology, across-the-board U-value ratings as low as .19 (when utilizing triple-pane glass), and design pressure ratings above 50. Low-E coated glass from Cardinal Glass Industries delivers energy efficiency in all types of weather.
“The wood window industry has tried to address the demand for this type of architecture with products branded as ‘contemporary’ — and customers aren’t buying it,” says Gates. “Architects and designers want the look, functionality, and strength of aluminum, and have often sacrificed energy ratings to get it. Our new aluminum product family will be more energy efficient than wood.”
Also inside Show Village, the Ultimate Kitchen, a 960-square foot show home, will include three vinyl multi-slide doors designed exclusively for Western Window Systems’ Volume Program. And just west of Orlando, at the Esplanade at Highland Ranch community in Clermont, Western Window Systems will play a major role in the debut of the NEXTAdventure home. From Builder magazine and Taylor Morrison, the 2,268-square-foot, single-level home is designed for the 55-and-over homeowner audience, and features an open floor plan and customizable indoor-outdoor living options. Ninety-degree vinyl multi-slide doors from Western Window Systems will open from the dining area to the kitchen, and a stacking vinyl multi-slide door will open from the family area to an outdoor living space with a fireplace and summer kitchen, creating a wide-open open-flow area.
