Manko Window Systems announced it has upgraded its two remaining manufacturing locations in Aurora, Colo., and Des Moines, Iowa, with DFI’s FuseCube Express glass coating machine. The addition of the fully automated machine at these locations allows Manko to offer customers Diamon-Fusion glass protection on shower doors and architectural systems.

“Manko services over 28 states in the Midwest region. Using the automated capabilities of the FuseCube Express to treat our glass will allow us to keep our commitment on overall product quality, on-time delivery and shortened lead times,” says Kevin Bahner, national sales manager at Manko.

DFI’s FuseCube Express utilizes a chemical vapor deposition process, that fuses the coating into the glass. This application process is designed to transform glass into a water-repellent surface, and the patented coating comes with a lifetime warranty on residential surfaces and a 15-year warranty on commercial surfaces, according to the company.
