Hundreds of exhibitors representing every aspect of the door and window industry will feature their newest developments at GlassBuild America. Here’s a peek at what some exhibitors will display. Look to the September issue of Door and Window Market [DWM] magazine for more products on display.

Booth 2517 – Quanex Building Products

Quanex is celebrating two occasions at this year’s GlassBuild—the 30-year anniversary of its Super Spacer warm-edge technology and 50 years of Mikron AW-Rated System C3-11300 vinyl. Company officials say they have another occasion to celebrate: a new service platform. Officials are mum about the details ahead of the show, merely suggesting that the company, “will reveal its new service platform designed to further enhance its commitment to customers, stakeholders and employees.” Exactly what that might be is anyone’s guess until further announcement.

Booth 3207 – Tremco

Tremco will showcase its product portfolio at GlassBuild America, which includes a new product for the residential window and door market, EnerSeal—a line of insulating glass perimeter sealants. The company will also showcase live demonstrations of insulating glass window construction using its EnerEDGE silicone warm-edge spacer technology.


Booth 725 – Veka Inc.

Don’t be fooled when you walk into Veka’s booth this year to find a company of a different name floating around. In the months prior to this year’s show, Veka unveiled Digital Product Solutions Corp., a stand-alone business through which it’s offering a proprietary system of near field communication-based (NFC) technologies for product labeling and identification.

WIN (short for window intelligence) utilizes smartphones to detect the company’s NFC labels, creating what officials are calling a cloud-based, “digital double” for products. Door and window companies—and even homeowners—can utilize the technology for storing and connecting product information, including full specifications for component and glass replacement.

Meanwhile, a web-based program called web cockpit interacts with enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, tracking doors and windows throughout their complete life cycle.

Booth 2205 – Caldwell Manufacturing

This year, Caldwell looks to bring attention to two new options: Omni Drive, an outswing operator that officials say is “revolutionary,” and Roller Tilt Elite 562, which is now available in 11#, single-spring applications

Designed to accommodate headed pivot bars for high DP ratings and impact capability, expanded single-spring capacities for Roller Tilt Elite 562 provide a reduced cartridge height to meet egress capabilities with a wider range of sash weights. The product features the ease of a modified drop-in pivot bar, with the consumer safety feature of a rack-in system. A capped cam cavity eliminates accidental sash displacement.
