COLUMBUS, OHIO – Simonton Windows, one of the nation’s leading suppliers of quality vinyl windows and patio doors, has introduced the new Asure™ line of energy-efficient replacement windows and patio doors. Designed to maximize the amount of natural daylight that enters the home, Asure products are available in Double Hung, Slider, and Picture window styles, along with a variety of popular geometric styles and patio doors.
“Input from both consumers and remodelers helped us design this new product line that includes a larger viewing area and sightline,” says Gary Pember, vice president of marketing for Simonton Windows. “The re-designed frame and modified sash on these units allow more light into the home. This allows homeowners to connect more with nature and ‘bring the outdoors inside’ their homes.”
Available nationwide, Asure windows feature a two “stepped” sill design for better resistance to water and air infiltration. Simonton’s patented Lap-Lok® Meeting Rail and thick fin seal weatherstripping also help ensure a tight seal against wind and rain. The sill “chambers” are uniquely designed for added strength and durability, providing peace-of-mind to homeowners investing in these replacement windows.
Energy-Efficiency and Aesthetic Appeal
Simonton Asure windows can be ordered with design pressure (DP) ratings of up to 50. The new window incorporates a triple-stepped sill when DP ratings from 35 to 50 are selected. Asure products meet ASTM and AAMA Gold standards when installed according to manufacturer’s instructions. Asure windows and patio doors can also be ordered to meet ENERGY STAR® criteria in all areas of the country.
On the exterior of the window, a stylish, reverse brickmould frame enhances the window’s aesthetics and increases curb appeal. “From the outside, Asure windows and patio doors complement any home design,” says Pember. “The frame face of the window provides an enhanced, attractive architectural ‘finished’ look to the home. Clean corner welds and a smooth exterior construction complete the styling of these impressive windows.”
For the interior of the home, the affordable Asure windows incorporate a constant force balance system, requiring minimal effort to operate the sash. A longer sash stop in the lower sash has also been added for increased support and ease of operation.
Available in white and tan, Asure products can be ordered with Flat or Sculptured grids in Colonial, Diamond, Perimeter, Prairie or Victorian patterns. A Double-Lifetime Limited Warranty provides peace-of-mind for homeowners.
