Vision Introduces 1514 Shipping Clip
Vision Industries Group has introduced a new shipping clip—the 1514, which
is designed to allow manufacturers to ship windows without the worry of
locks and keepers arriving damaged. The clip does not permit movement
of a window’s sashes during shipment, and a simple cable tie function
with a candle lever stop ensures a problem-free transport, according to
the company. After arriving on the job, these clips can be removed with
a easily standard side cutter.
DOORS AND WINDOWS
Panda Debuts a New Slider
Panda Windows and Doors LLC recently debuted its S. 83 thermally broken
multi-slide door system. The S. 83 was designed in response to many requests
from design professionals wanting a slim profile aluminum multi-slide
glass door system with a thermally broken profile and frame, according
to the company.
The system utilizes two separate aluminum extrusions that are crimped
together together using a polyamide iso-bar. Company officials say the
S. 83 system achieves a 0.29 U-value in simulated testing utilizing a
triple-pane insulating glass unit.
The system can utilize any glass available that will fit in the unit,
according to Panda, and total panel size may be up to 12 feet in height
and 6 feet in width. They S. 83 also features a specially designed panel
interlock made completely of a polyamide material so that no aluminum
from the interior to exterior is able to connect, according to the company.
The frame for this system also was specially designed to incorporate polyamide
iso-bar technology to achieve optimal thermal values.
