Spotlight on Window and Door Hardware:

Hardware companies have been busy creating new products for door and window manufacturers. Following are some of the new products you’ll be hearing about in the coming months (or may have already heard about and are thinking of incorporating into your window lines). 

Ultra Jamb Reinforces Door Jambs

Structural Protective Products of Ambridge, Pa., says its Ultra Jamb Reinforcer is ideal for protecting screen and storm doors from wind and heavy use, while reinforcing the wooden door jamb. The company says the steel plate keeps the screen door bracket and piston in place, preventing the door jamb from splitting and/or cracking.

The product comes with a nickel-plated steel plate, a universally-fitting screen door bracket and attachment screws. The bracket can be positioned at three different points and the plate can be installed at the top, middle or bottom of the door jamb, according to the company.


Go Tell It on the Muntin

Lowell, Indiana-based Ashland Hardware Systems, a division of Newell Rubbermaid, has created a series of muntin clips that flex and snap into position specially for Sashlite window systems. The company, which created the clips after being selected as an exclusive supplier to the Sashlite system, says the clips they created are made for “quick and accurate installation for the manufacturer.”

RiteScreen of Elizabethville, Penn., has introduced its Lift Rail line of screen frames, what the company calls a “unique alternative to conventional pull tabs.” Extending the entire length of the frame, lift rail frames can be incorporated into any side of standard box frames of 5/16 inch and 7/16 inch.


It’s Not Super Hardware—It’s ULTRA Hardware

Ultra Hardware of Pennsauken, N.J., announced that the company has begun shipping a full line of casement hardware to window manufacturers nationwide. The company says its hardware adds value due to its proprietary tension vertical lift adjustment and its no-leak operator housing.

“Our line of casement hardware products is available to meet any need, and our in-house engineering department will assist in the design of proprietary components to enhance any high volume product line,” said Rick Lipinksi, vice president. “Casement hardware is a natural extension of Ultra’s window and door hardware program which includes sash locks, roller assemblies, sliding door handles, storm and screen door hardware and door hinges.”
