Delivering Architectural Integrity with new Contemporary Hardware

6/27/2016 9:34:13 AM

Weather Shield strives to provide the most architecturally correct product lines that stand up to the scrutiny of architects and custom builders. It separates Weather Shield from many other manufacturers. It's why we introduced consistently narrow 3-1/4" stiles and rails on our Contemporary Collection bi-fold and multi-slide doors. It's also why we worked with Roto-Frank to custom-design our new contemporary hardware, which can now be pre-ordered.

“Weather Shield was intent on developing authentic, true-to-style contemporary hardware,” said David Gilson, business manager for Roto-Frank of North America, manufacturer of the hardware. “We sought input from architects and designers throughout our design process to ensure authenticity and acceptance by those who specialize in modern-style architecture.”

The new casement and awning nested handle set and sequential lock lever have squared-off, clean lines consistent with our Contemporary Collection, and can be specified for that product line as well as the Premium Coastal product line. In addition to the new style, the contemporary hardware is available in polished chrome as well as the previously offered white, tan, brushed nickel, polished brass, black and rustic bronze.
