Greensboro, NC - April 17th, 2008 - Under the strain of the current construction industry, builders are looking for alternatives that offer real value to their homes. Endura always brings value to exterior door openings by adding components that surround your door with a system integrated to keep weather at bay. Now, Endura is proud to announce a component of the same unsurpassed value that’s designed to fit the needs of multi-family projects. Endura's multi-family sill offers high value with great performance to work with the high volume, consistent construction practices of multi-family work sites.
Performance is demanded in multi-family construction because homeowners demand it. "The key to this product is that multi-family projects want a consistency from home to home. It is this consistency that works very well with our new sill," says Endura's President, Bruce Procton."That means that we can be very efficient in our sill construction and offer an attractive price point which is what all builders are looking for in this highly competitive market."
The new multi-family sill offers many of the features and benefits of Endura's patented and widely recognized Z-series sill, including an adjustable synthetic cap that will not warp from heat or stain from water exposure. Within the cap is Endura's sealed adjusting mechanism which allows the cap to be raised to fit snugly with the door bottom or sweep. The adjusting hardware is protected from water, dirt and debris so that adjustments can be made throughout the life of the sill.
The multi-family sill also features a high dam design with an integrated seal to keep water out even during high winds and driving rain. This high dam cap creates a barrier to water collecting on the sill deck. The integrated seal works with the high dam to guard against water traveling between the cap and the dam. Simply put, the high quality design of the sill is engineered to keep water and air out even under the worst conditions. The multi-family sill is available in full or block wood substrate and has a continuous caulking surface along the length of the sill. It easily meets the demands of multi-family projects with tangible benefits and value.
