Doors and Windows
The Crestline® Select 250 Series from Crestline Windows & Doors offers Menards customers all-vinyl patio doors and windows. The new line includes sliding patio doors, single-hung, single-slider, casement, awning and direct-set picture windows, all engineered for thermal performance, longevity, durability and appearance. The multi-chambered frame on the Select 250 Series products is engineered to add strength and insulating performance to the units, the company says. Fusion-welded corners provide rigidity and durability. Window finishing accessories such as a mull cover connector, drip cap, j-channel, vinyl brickmould and stucco adapter snap into a built-in exterior accessory channel. www.crestlinewindows.com
Clear as Crystal
Crystal Window & Door Systems has introduced its Series 2600 double-hung aluminum window, with an energy efficient 3-¼-inch frame depth and what the company calls a strong weather-resistant test rating. The window can be used for either replacement or new construction applications. The Series 2600 has been rated as AAMA CW-PG50-H, which the company says achieves equivalent design pressure, uniform structural load, deflection and water resistance performance thresholds as the former HC rating using a relatively similar standard test size. The new Crystal double-hung (D/H) window is positioned between the existing Series 2000A commercial and Series 5500 heavier-duty commercial windows on the company’s aluminum product line. www.crystalwindows.com.
Let it Slide
CGI Windows, a manufacturer of hurricane impact-resistant doors and windows, released an updated version of its Sentinel 150 sliding glass door. The updated door is now available with concealed installation screws, an updated two-point lock, improved fixed-panel clips and a redesigned door stop. Standard on the door are tandem stainless steel rollers with precision bearings in a stainless steel housing; stainless steel fasteners for durability; 4-3/4-inch deep frame on a two-track (for retrofit), and a 6-inch deep frame on a three-track; a Class I anodized sill track; and a heavy-duty extruded screen frame built with SuperView fiberglass mesh, which the company says makes it tougher than many door panels. www.cgiwindows.com
