N. VENICE, FLA. – January 4, 2010 – PGT, Inc. (NASDAQ: PGTI), one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, today announced the launch of its newest product line: PremierVue™. Developed with the discerning customer in mind, PremierVue is a highly-rated vinyl impact product line that provides hurricane protection, energy efficiency and also qualifies for federal tax credits.
“PremierVue is our answer to the market demand for high-end impact-resistant products,” said Debbie LaPinska, PGT Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “PremierVue broadens PGT’s capabilities in both the vinyl and impact-resistant markets, while offering the increasingly critical energy-efficiency benefits of vinyl. We are working tirelessly to bring our customers more. PremierVue does just that.
” The PremierVue line, one of the highest air, water and structurally rated vinyl impact product lines for the single and multi-family residential markets, is a result of PGT’s recent acquisition of the operating assets of Hurricane Window and Door Factory of Fort Myers, Florida. The products included in the PremierVue line provide long-term energy and structural benefits, while qualifying homeowners for the government’s energy tax credits in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The durability and efficiency of the multi-chambered vinyl utilized in PremierVue products make them an ideal and durable product line for harsh climates. The complete PremierVue line includes six window styles: double-hung, two and three panel horizontal roller, casement, awning and picture window. In addition to hurricane protection, energy efficiency and UV protection, PremierVue offers features such as heavy duty laminated safety glass and locking, tilting and pivoting mechanisms that make families, homes and valuables safe from intruders.
PremierVue will be sold exclusively through select distributors.
