For those who like their views panoramic
Medford, Wisconsin-based Weather Shield Windows and Doors addresses the increasing popularity of large expanses of glass in high-end homes with its new Oversized Direct Set Windows. Weather Shield expanded the glass from 60 square feet to 70 square feet to satisfy architects and homebuilders who desire larger unobstructed views.
With floor-to-ceiling glass these windows create a seamless wall of glass. These windows feature slim-line direct glaze rectangular frames that maximize the viewing area. Oversized Direct Set Windows are available in both the Weather Shield Contemporary Collection and Premium Series product lines.
“Our expanded-view glass gives architects and builders more design flexibility to meet homeowner needs,” said Brandon Budimlija, associate product manager. “They are also engineered for greater structural integrity and superior performance.” Oversized Direct Set Windows feature a robust 5/4-inch jamb and a two-part structural sealant that enables these windows to achieve a design pressure rating of +75/-75.
“Weather Shield offers complete customization,” Budimlija added. “We perform extensive testing and are a leading innovator in the development of oversized windows and doors.”
