Therma-Tru Announces Largest Product Launch in Its History
Therma-Tru® Doors, the pioneer of the fiberglass door industry, will be showcasing the largest new product launch in its history at the 2007 International Builders’ Show in Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center in Booth W1909.
Therma-Tru offers a solution to harsh weather conditions with its new Tru-Defense™ line for entry and patio door systems. Tru-Defense is a new category of high-performance entry and patio doors, components and certified systems that are designed to protect homes from severe weather, including flying debris from high winds, torrential rains and harsh winter storms.
Tru-Defense products are backed by full-system warranties and have been engineered and designed to work together in order to provide better protection against air and water infiltration and structural wind loads. Tru-Defense offers the only independently tested and certified DP-40 entry system, plus new impact-rated glass and opaque fiberglass doors, and DP-40 or higher patio systems — providing the industry’s most complete collection of certified systems available today.
The products’ DP-40 or higher air, water and structural performance ratings have been independently lab tested and certified by the National Accreditation and Management Institute (NAMI). The DP rating indicates that the unit has passed:
- A structural test pressure of 60 pounds per square foot, equal to winds of 153 mph
- A weather penetration test under conditions equal to 8 inches of rain per hour driven by 49-mph winds
- An air infiltration test pressure of 1.57 pounds per square foot, equal to 25-mph winds
In response to the growing demand from builders and home owners for a factory-finished door system that is ready to install without having to wait for hand-applied stains to dry, Therma-Tru recently introduced FinishRight technology, setting an industry standard for beautiful, consistent finishes.
The Therma-Tru FinishRight program offers a durable, consistent finish that will endure harsh weather and look like new for years without peeling, chalking or fading. The new product is available in five different stain colors for many popular systems of Classic-Craft Oak, Mahogany, Rustic and Fiber-Glass door systems.
The product comes with a five-year warranty and requires very little maintenance from home owners.
Therma-Tru is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — The Supplier 100 of NAHB.
