IBS 2020 Preview: Enhancements and New Offerings for 2020 Product Lines

11/14/2019 11:33:40 AM

The 2020 NAHB International BuildersShow (IBS) is fast approaching – January 21-23, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center – and we’re excited to be unveiling a few innovative projects we have in the works. This year, we’re centering our booth on the UNOBSTRUCTED theme. It’s what we all want in a door or window – a completely unobstructed view. When you partner with Weather Shield, the options are endless and the style is timeless. We can bring your vision to life – anything is possible. 

Our booth and product offerings will focus on and revolve around our growing innovative door portfolio and the enhancements we’ve made in addition to a few product launches we are expecting to release in the second half of 2020. Here’s a quick glimpse of what we’ve been working on…


Contemporary Collection™ NEXT GEN Sliding Patio Door

Transforming the sliding door category with larger sizes, this door has improved overall performance, superior operation and an advanced low-profile sill design. Where other sliding doors may force consumers to make choices between narrow profiles and higher performance, this reimagined design delivers both. What makes this door unique from other doors in the market is its advanced hardware system. By throwing a single lever, the active door panel shifts inward perpendicular to the wall. This shift releases the perimeter sealing gaskets, allowing the door to slide effortlessly with little friction. When the door is in the locked position, the panel is drawn in to create an exceptionally tight seal with multiple lock points on both stiles. A wept 1-1/4” low-profile sill diverts water away from the interior. An optional direct-glazed version of the door expands the visible glass, giving a clean, modern look. This door is available in 4-panel, 2-panel and 2-panel direct set configurations with a 3-panel and French panel launching later 2020.

Pocketing Multi-Slide Door

In addition, Weather Shield will be showcasing a pocketing option for the multi-slide door.

When the panels slide completely out of view, it’s easier for homeowners to connect with the outdoors, and creates the ideal, unobstructed view. The space between indoor and outdoor living blurs and becomes fully accessible, and the entertaining possibilities are endless

The Bi-Fold Door Receives an Updated Look with New Hardware 

Weather Shield will be sharing new enhancements for the beautiful, slender bi-fold doors which eliminate visible hardware to offer improved aesthetics and intuitive operation. These hardware options include a modernized shoot bolt system and concealed hinges. 
Also, the Bi-Fold Doors within the Contemporary Collection and Premium Series® now include an advanced, low-profile sill option that delivers optimum performance against even the harshest elements. The new low-profile, 1.25-inch sill features leading water performance relative to sill height and integrates with finished flooring for a seamless transition free from potential trip hazards.

Direct Set & Corner Window Wall 

Continuing to expand the possibilities, Weather Shield will be featuring an innovative, 90-degree corner window, direct set configuration stacked at an angle to create a tilted glass wall that is sure to make a statement. 

French Push-Out Casement 

With a textured steel aluminum finish, this window is similar to the push-out casement with two sashes that open out but what sets this push-out apart from others is that there is no stability bar in the middle taking away from the view.
