Insect Screen Change for 100 Series Casement/Awning Windows

Andersen is pleased to announce an improved insect screen design for 100 Series casement and awning
products. Inspired by the 400 Series insect screen design, we will be incorporating a roll-formed
aluminum screen frame that provides for tighter screen cloth appearance.

Replacement components
The new casement insect screen leverages the same screen cloth and is similar in appearance to the
current insect screen. New casement and awning insect screens can be identified by close examination
of the wing blade (see images below). In most instances, the new insect screen will be a viable substitute
for the current insect screen (“backward compatible”). The current insect screen design will remain
available as needed through a special product request (SPR).

It takes time and passion to be really great.
Twenty years ago, I never would have guessed that I would still be working for the same company that welcomed me straight out of high school! I also would not have guessed at this time I would be the parent of a high school freshman! Time flies by in the blink of an eye.
Our son, Chase, is almost 15 and right now, football is his LIFE! Every day revolves around the game he loves. He trains all year in the weight room to be the toughest guy he can be. All his hard work came to a screeching halt this summer when he broke his leg on the second day at UMD Football Camp in Duluth. He had broken his Tibia and Fibula (the two bones between the ankle and knee). It was a long boring summer for Chase. We all learned to have a little patience and grace this summer.
Chase’s next biggest passion is anything that he can drive! He ended up buying a four- wheeler and worked on restoring it most of the summer. By the end of the summer, he was fully healed and cleared to play at the end of this last football season. He has already decided he is going back to football camp!
During his recovery, Chase has been working with the Physical Therapy department at the Firstlight Health System in our home town of Mora, MN, which just so happens to be our Heartland Glass feature project this quarter. I have been managing the Firstlight Health System project for about the last year or so. I was also responsible for estimating this job so I have literally seen it from start to finish. It has brought challenges in bidding and managing, but overall, this project has been very rewarding. We have developed a great working relationship with Kraus Anderson Construction who are the construction managers on the project.
There are so many advantages of running a project close to home. The top being one of the first patients to use their state-of-the-art Physical Therapy department. This facility was much needed in our area. I am very happy to send Chase to Firstlight Health for Physical Therapy. He enjoys going and using the equipment there. I love walking through the building and seeing friendly faces that I know from around town whether I’m working with my pink hard hat or there as a patient. Yes, I said pink! It was graciously given to me for Women in Construction week by my fellow peers; Garrity Gerber, Ken Schueller, David Pennertz, Luke Nelson and former employee Matt Dieser. I couldn’t do this job without my team!
I have really enjoyed working on this project and I hope to keep adding to my health care portfolio in the future. Health care projects usually incorporate leading design aspects and I am continually learning something new on these projects.

Andersen® 400 Series Tilt-Wash Window with Optional Performance Grade (PG) 50 Upgrade

Andersen Corporation is pleased to introduce a redesigned PG50 upgrade option for 400 Series tilt-wash units. This new design eliminates the need for field applied installation clips as well as all visible interior structural support brackets and the exterior outer frame member brackets. New upper sash exterior pivot pins and the existing exterior sill brackets will still be used but would be partially hidden from view if using an insect screen. Double sash locks will continue to be used.

 

  

Tilt-wash units with PG upgrade already installed in the field cannot be retro-fitted to eliminate the interior structural brackets due to unit modifications. These new enhancements do not apply to the monumental 72 and 76 heights or tilt-wash units with impact resistant glass.  Contact Heartland Glass for more details and information.

This is Andersen’s fourth Sustained Excellence Award and the ninth time the company has been recognized by the ENERGY STAR program.

“Andersen is proud to be recognized for our leadership in energy efficiency and commitment to the ENERGY STAR program,” said Jay Lund, Andersen chairman and CEO. “Our longstanding commitment to the ENERGY STAR program aligns with core aspects of our company’s mission to lead our industry by creating different and better products and to build brands people value and trust.”

In addition to developing and promoting energy efficient products, Andersen is committed to reducing energy use across its operations. The company has an enterprise goal to reduce its energy use by 20 percent by 2020, using 2013 as a baseline.

“The 2018 ENERGY STAR Partners of the Year have demonstrated real leadership, showing how American families and businesses can save energy, save money, and reduce air emissions,” said Bill Wehrum, EPA Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation.

In 2016 alone, ENERGY STAR certified products, homes, buildings, and plants helped Americans save over $30 billion in energy costs and approximately 400 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity and while achieving broad emissions reductions.
