VENICE, Fla., Jan. 28, 2008 – With the launch of a new vinyl line offering unmatched benefits from design detail to service and delivery, PGT is once again proving that it is Visibly Better®.

PGT, one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of custom windows and doors, will unveil Vinyl Series 2100 at the 2008 International Builders’ Show® (IBS) in Orlando from Feb 13-16. Additionally, PGT will showcase several of its latest products: ETERNATM, a replicated woodgrain finish; PGT® WinGuard® Sliding Glass Corner Meet Door, which will be displayed with ETERNA Finish; and Architectural Systems, a line of commercial products engineered for high design pressures.

“Our selection, service and satisfaction demonstrate why PGT is Visibly Better,” said Debbie LaPinska, VP Sales and Marketing. “Builders and distributors have given us high ratings for our outstanding customer-service, easy product installation, on-time delivery--and best of all--you’ll find that we’re easy to do business with…instilling in you the confidence to count on us.”

Series 2100 is a complete line of vinyl windows for new construction with unsurpassed wood-like details and optimal thermal performance. The details consist of traditional brickmould frames, contour grids, simulated divided lites, wood-like trim detail and Super Spacer® technology. This attention to detail is unmatched and sets PGT Vinyl Series 2100 windows apart.

And as a proud partner of the US Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® program, all of PGT’s 2100 Series standard products comply with ENERGY STAR. Additionally, PGT Vinyl Series 2100 windows come standard with double strength insulating glass and hi-performance Low-E, as well as Super Spacer® technology. Double strength glass and the insulating, structural foam Super Spacer deliver a 9oF (6o C) warmer average edge temperature in cold weather tests. They also keep inside air cooler on hot summer days. Super Spacer beats metal spacers by virtually eliminating condensation. It also enhances overall Rvalues as much as 30 percent.   

PGT promises delivery of 2100 Series complete and on-time in one week, and backs the line with one of the best warranties in the industry--a lifetime warranty on the frame, insulating glass components and hardware. Products are available in white or beige and meet AAMA, NFRC, FBC certifications.

a simulated woodgrain finish, on PGT WinGuard offers the visual beauty and warmth of wood in durable, low-maintenance aluminum frames. The finish is an authentic reproduction of five popular woodgrains: acacia, cherry, light oak, dark oak, and dark walnut. It is available on WinGuard casement, architectural and picture windows, sliding glass doors, and French doors. ETERNA Finish is quickly becoming the logical solution in coastal replacement projects when moisture adversely affects wood products.

Made with strong, weather-resistant aluminum frames, this uniquely configured sliding glass door is ideal for projects where withstanding the elements and opening up a home to spectacular views are both priorities. Builders will welcome the opportunity to create a signature look for their homes with this product, which is not widely available in the industry. Available with two, three or four tracks, WinGuard sliding glass door Series 780 is also available as a bypass or pocket door. It comes standard with corrosion-resistant hardware and fasteners, and fully weatherstripped construction. Maximum reinforced corner door panel size is 4’ x 10.’ Choose white, bronze or gray. The corner meet option is also available on PGT Series 680 aluminum sliding glass doors.

PGT Architectural Systems is a line of commercial products engineered for high design pressures with all the strength, beauty, and breadth of sizes customers demand. Custom built to meet demanding application specifications, Architectural Systems is ideal for replacement and new construction in condos, hotels, retail, office buildings and educational facilities.

Dedicated to project management, an individual PGT Architectural Systems expert will be your single point of contact for service before, during and after the sale. For any questions or issues, including engineering and technical assistance, count on them to configure and price products for your unique job requirements, and to make sure the final product is delivered complete and on-time.

The Architectural Systems products have been engineered to perform above industry standards. The sliding glass door has a threshold measuring a mere 3 7/8 inches, but it yields water-pressure resistance up to 24.75 psf. It doesn’t just perform under pressure, the end user will also appreciate the unique step-on threshold design with treading. The threshold can be stepped on rather than stepped over like most flange threshold designs. All products feature details such as concealed stainless steel fasteners, redundant weatherstripping, extended palate of paint colors and finishes, as well as robust design features like double-hallow panel extrusions, oversized interlocks, narrow sightlines and marine glazed aesthetics that will entertain even the most discerning eye. Built for strength, protection and beauty, PGT Architectural Systems is an ideal choice for your next commercial project.
