Harvey Building ProductsWaltham, MA – For homeowners, architects and contractors who had to choose between the traditional beauty of wood windows or the energy-efficiency and maintenance-free care of vinyl windows, an exciting option now combines the best of both. Harvey Building Products introduced in early 2010 a premium option — BetterGrain™ finish — to its ENERGY STAR®-qualified, premier Tribute windows (http://www.harveybp.com/BetterGrain.aspx).
The new finish is a revolutionary dual-process painted wood grain finish that mimics the qualities of natural wood more authentically and effectively than veneers, laminates, foils or other alternatives currently in the market. Significant research and testing yielded a two-step process by which vinyl is colored to precise specifications, then layered with graining and slight texturing unique to specific woods, with options including Pine, Red Cedar and Dark Oak. Combined with window features such as contoured sash and glazing beads, the wood grain finish helps Tribute windows emulate not only the traditional lines of a well-crafted wood window, but create visual impact as well. All Tribute windows qualify for ENERGY STAR tax credit and for the federal tax credit available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The uniqueness of the BetterGrain finish for Tribute windows caught the attention of Window & Door magazine which recently announced (and featured in the September issue) its 2010 Crystal Achievement Awards for significant innovations and achievements in window and door technology, manufacturing and marketing. The BetterGrain finish for Tribute windows received an award for “Most Innovative Window” in the Technology category.
“Wood grain finishes of a quality that match top-of-the line vinyl windows have been an unmet need until now and we’re thrilled that this innovative technology has been recognized by a panel of industry experts and rewarded with a Crystal Award”, says Matt Samson, vice president, marketing for Harvey Building Products.
Tribute windows offer enhancements such as standard Double Low-E/Argon for outstanding thermal performance, a revolutionary, dual-acting lock/tilt latch for increased convenience, anti-theft ventilation limit latches for security, and an easy-cleaning glass system that makes it virtually maintenance-free. The optional High Performance Package includes triple glazing and enhanced UV protection. Tribute windows are available in a variety of styles, including: double-hung, casement, awning, picture, hopper, rolling and designer shapes.
