Maumee, Ohio -- When builders head to Orlando, Florida, in February for the 2012 NAHB International Builders' Show, they'll have the opportunity to walk through many Therma-Tru doors, says the company. The reason is that, as well as exhibiting itself at the industry trade show, Therma-Tru has been selected to provide feature entryway systems and the company's Fypon synthetic products for the Cool Energy House, Builder Concept Home, Eco-Home at Show Village and the 2012 NextGen Home.
"Show home coordinators looking for quality products to enhance their project homes often turn to Therma-Tru and our energy-efficient fibreglass door systems," said Heather Sonnenberg, vice president of product management for Therma-Tru.
"In addition, we've received many requests for our Fypon urethane and PVC products to enhance both the interiors and exteriors of the show homes in Orlando," Sonnenberg added.
The Cool Energy House, sponsored by the US Department of Energy's Building America programme, is a deep-energy remodel project presented as an educational tour for builders, re-modellers and the general public in Windermere, Florida, as part of the 2012 NAHB International Builders' Show.
The mission of this home is to demonstrate how economically sound measures and strategies in re-modelling can result in energy efficient, healthy, comfortable and durable homes. It uses nine Therma-Tru Smooth-Star fibreglass doors that meet Energy Star qualifications. Fypon low-maintenance PVC flat trim pieces are being installed as window and door surrounds, while Fypon urethane crown fascia mouldings, a baluster system and louvred shutters are also being incorporated, plus a crosshead and pediments to highlight the entryway.
