Weather Shield Signature Series Meets Market Need for Mid-Priced Aluminum Clad Wood Product Line


Homeowners who think aluminum clad wood windows and doors are out of their price range will appreciate Weather Shield Windows & Doors’ Signature Series™. The mid-priced product line combines the beauty of wood interiors and low-maintenance aluminum clad exteriors with a whole host of options to please most everyone. The Signature Series styles include casement, awning, picture, double hung, sliding, direct-set and specialty-shaped windows; and hinged and sliding patio doors.

"When it was introduced in 2013, the Signature Series brought Weather Shield into a market we’d not addressed previously – buyers seeking wood windows who may not need all the bells and whistles of our Premium Series™," said Dave Koester, Weather Shield brand manager. "The Signature Series offers affordable luxury for homeowners who prefer aluminum clad windows and doors and may be price sensitive. It’s a nice compromise of value and options without compromising thermal performance and energy efficiency."

Vast Options for Mid-Level Product Line

The Signature Series offers many appealing standard offerings as well as several upgrade options for a more tailored window and door package. Interiors are available in standard pine or optional character alder. Both can be factory-finished in four stain finishes: clear satin, fruitwood, chestnut, golden oak; painted with white latex; or primed for finishing at the jobsite. To complement these finishes, hardware is available in white, tan, brushed nickel and rustic bronze.

The durable aluminum clad exteriors are offered in seven popular colors: white, cameo, tan, desert tan, Hartford green, craftsman bronze and brick red. Matching exterior trim can be ordered in several profiles including: 1" aluminum brickmould, 3-1/2" aluminum flat casing, aluminum K style casing, SnapFit casing, SnapFit bead casing, SnapFit (3 back bands) and SnapFit (3 sill noses).

For added charm, homeowners can add grilles to the Signature Series. Available options are: removable wood grilles, 5/8" flat and 11/16" sculpted grilles in the airspace, and 7/8" and 1-3/8" simulated divided lites.

The Signature Series features the Weather Shield’s TriCore™ frame technology and the Symmetry Balance System™, both of which ensure excellent structural performance, virtual elimination of water infiltration and minimal weathering. Energy-efficient glazing choices, such as Zo-e-shield 5, Zo-e-shield 5 Extreme, Zo-e-shield 6, Zo-e-shield 7, Zo-e-shield Safeguard, Zo-e-shield Safeguard Certified, or Insul Low E with argon-gas-filled airspaces, further the energy efficiency of the Signature Series products.
