The sliding door has come a long way since the postwar building boom in America. Over the ensuing decades, from midcentury modern tract housing to upscale luxury homes, it’s become a vital feature for architects and builders. And Western Window Systems continues to lead the way in innovative sliding-door solutions.
So it makes perfect sense that the Home Builder Executive highlighted Western Window Systems in a special report headlined “Innovations in Multi-Slide Door Systems” in the trade magazine’s January 9, 2017 issue.
The story discusses the popular Series 3600 Vinyl Multi-Slide Door, praising its TPC spacer system, flush sill design, narrow sight lines, contemporary design, and convenient installation.
Western Window Systems vice president of production builder sales Chet Willis is quoted in the story, calling the Series 3600 “one of the most energy-efficient multi-slide doors available.”
The article also points out that while many companies’ sliding doors are shipped already assembled, Western Window Systems’ are put together on-site.
“[They are] knocked down and assembled in the field,” Willis tells Home Builder Executive, “which translates to more convenient shipping and allows us to provide very big doors.”
The story predicts that homeowners’ desire for larger doors will continue to grow, to the point that they become standard in many production builders’ homes because “buyers will come to expect enhanced access to outdoor living spaces,” Willis says.
In its special report, Home Builder Executive gives Willis the final word on the subject.
“Doors from Western Window Systems’ Volume Program are cost-effective and offer an unparalleled selection of door sizes and configurations, as well as lead times unheard of for products of this type and quality,” he says. “Our dealer base provides a true turnkey experience, taking the guesswork out of finding a consistent supply of quality door systems.”
