Therma-Tru® Receives Award From Popular Science

Therma-Tru’s® Tru-Defense™ Entry and Patio Door System has received the 2007 Best of What’s New Award from Popular Science magazine. The high-performance system was cited in the home technology category for offering builders and remodelers a high- performance door solution for damaging weather and harsh conditions.

Tru-Defense is designed to work together to protect homes from severe weather, according to the company. Therma-Tru’s Tru-Defense certified entry and patio doors have an air, water and structural performance rating of DP-40 or higher. The complete door systems are independently tested, and certified by the National Accreditation and Management Institute (NAMI).

“We’re thrilled to receive this important recognition from Popular Science,” says Jim McElroy, general manager, product marketing. “Tru-Defense door systems provide builders with confidence that they, in turn, can extend to their homeowners. Thanks to the advanced engineering behind the system, the doors can handle the worst that Mother Nature has to offer.”
