Introducing the New Contemporary Collection by Weather Shield

2/23/2015 12:54:36 PM

Contemporary architecture is broadly defined as the building style of the present day.  You need to look no further than the pages of any current architectural magazine to see just how popular this style has become.  One distinguishing trademark of this style of architecture is the use of oversized windows and doors to help connect indoor and outdoor spaces.  With this in mind we have developed a suite of windows and doors that can take on the unique design challenges that this architectural style can present.

Casement & Awning Windows

Our windows in our new Contemporary Collection are available in:
  • Casement—sizes up to 3’6” x 8’0”
  • Picture—sizes up to 6’0” x 8’0”
  • Awning—sizes up to 5’0” x 4’0”
All frames are built utilizing the TriCare™ sub-frame system and all corners of that frame are fusion welded to eliminate points of possible water intrusion commonly found in other windows. The windows have a gear operated crank mechanism that effortlessly opens the sash and hold in any position—manual push-outs also available. For extra security and durability, a single throw of a lever locks the sash sequentially in multiple places, creating a virtually airtight seal.
