Quick and Easy Protection

To help ensure that doors and hinges arrive in pristine condition, Ideal Door Components introduced a new hinge protector. Officials say the company’s specific blend of non-marring materials is slightly pliable, also helping to reduce production time by making it easier to install than traditional protectors and rubber bands.

Role Reversal

A new design by Monumental Windows and Doors upends the typical design for rollers to make them more robust, easy to use and maintain. The 5000 Series Sublinear System works on a patent-pending principle that reverses the typical rolling assembly, moving the track from the sill assembly into the bottom of sliding panels, while roller cartridges are placed into the sill. The series is the company’s newest slim-line sliding glass door system, designed to provide unobscured views. The frame is designed to install flush with interior and exterior finishes, with 7/8-inch sightlines. Roller cartridges house twin polyamide precision rollers that can support approximately 350 lbs. each.

The 5000 Sublinear line offers standard sliding, pocketing, corners, and custom-angle configurations, as well as the company’s Vari-Slide design, with single and multiple panels. The system also integrates with the Sublinear Pivot door system.

A New Name in Entry Doors

TruStile recently made a segue into entry doors. With its first collection, the company’s wood entry door systems include a wide selection of door, sidelite and transom combinations, officials say, including modern, traditional, coastal or craftsman styles. Custom systems can also be crafted around one of 500 door styles that are now available in entry configurations.

To transform the purchasing process, the company also provides instant configuration and drawing outputs through its Door Design Tool on TruStile.com, which select TruStile dealers can immediately quote and order via the TruQuote ordering platform.

The new entry door system was designed and developed in partnership with TruStile’s parent company, Marvin, including a new, highly engineered, exterior-grade MDF.

Fully Composite

Officials for 4EverSill say they’re the first to offer a fully composite doorsill. With a unique, poly-fiber structure, the thermally-broken sill is designed to be more impact resistant than aluminum. Available in bronze and mill, with or without PVC cover, and with added UV protection, finishes are designed to be durable and weather-resistant. The product includes a limited lifetime warranty.

New Platform for Polyester Coatings

Designed to make it simple for customers to specify coatings, many of its high-performance polyester coil coatings are now consolidated under the master brand of PolyPREMIER, which officials say will continue to be developed and enhanced.

The portfolio includes formulations for doors, window components and trim, and can be customized to meet various applications and end-use requirements.
