It is an exciting time to part of the Andersen family in the world of windows and doors. Andersen’s commitment of continued innovation and growth as the market leader has made the Architectural Collection the go to for architects, builders, and homeowners. With performance, durability, and style, the 200 Series and 400 Series have been the core of the AW brand throughout the past 30 years on the Cape and Islands. The good news is the AW core brands are just as prominent in today’s market and the Architectural Collection allows for unlimited window and door solutions. The Architectural Collection, consisting of the A-Series, E-Series, and Architectural doors, work together to give your project unlimited design capabilities. I’ve had the pleasure to be on the front line working with our building community meeting and exceeding expectations with the Architectural Collection.

A-Series patio doors can provide performance grade ratings of PG70 for the Impact Stormwatch rated patio doors. Remember the weather of March 2018 – Nor’easter after Nor’easter? We were ready on the Bayside and Nantucket thanks to the A-Series! The “Big Door” is a relative term used by Andersen. In West Dennis, we provided a 4 Panel A-Series Gliding door 12’w x 10’h – now that is a big door! Remember I stated innovation with performance? A-Series casements and double hung doors have monumental sizes up to 4’w x 8’h – that is also big! Another great feature of the A-Series is the extensive color options. A-Series gives you the opportunity to choose from 11 colors for both exterior and factor interior finishes. I will give you a tip: the projects with canvas (linen color pallet) interior color or a black interior have been spectacular. A-Series = Architectural opportunities.
E-Series products offer a traditional and contemporary window and door solution for all to fall in love with. All casements and awnings are produced with stainless steel hinges and operators mandatory – great in a coastal environment. Speaking of the E-Series awning, how about a kitchen window of 5’w x 4’ 4”h with a Truscene screen to look into your back yard? The extruded aluminum cladding with a clear coat coastal finish offers 60 standard exterior colors as well as custom color capability. The E-Series hinge doors offer two styles to give you variety in your upcoming projects. Yes, the Frenchwood style is popular, but did you know the E-Series can provide 4’ 11/16” rails all around on the hinge door? And have you seen the 3⁄4 lite panel door on display in the Shepley Showcase? E-Series = Unlimited capabilities.

Architectural Outswing Folding doors, Multi-Glide doors, and the Weiland lift and slide remove the boundary between the interior and exterior to create an extraordinary space in any home, restaurant, or business. This is an exciting opportunity to have large panel openings engineered with smooth and easy operation.
