WASHINGTON, DC. – September 2013 – The Articulating Cap Sill from Endura Products, Inc. has been selected as the Most Innovative Door Component by Window & Door Magazine’s 2103 Crystal Achievement Awards program.

Crystal Achievement Awards recognize significant innovations and achievements in window and door technology, manufacturing and marketing.  Winners were selected by a group of industry executives representing a broad segment of the window and door industry.  The judges brought a great deal of experience and expertise to the selection process.  Endura Products, Inc. is extremely honored to be cited by this distinguished group of industry peers.

Window & Door Editor/Associate Publisher, John Swanson, comments on the 2013 award winners, “Once again, our Crystal Achievement Award winners reflect the tremendous level of ingenuity, creativity and dedication to innovation within the North American window and door industry. Manufacturers and suppliers continue to break new ground in giving homeowners products that offer more energy efficiency, last longer and provide enhanced functionality.”


Endura’s patented Articulating Cap Sill acknowledges the challenging conditions of door unit fabrication, installation and maintenance, while negating the need for initial or ongoing adjustment of the sill.  Comprised of an articulating sill cap and a dedicated door bottom, the Z-AC automatically self-compensates +/- 1/8-inch to create the perfect door seal under any conditions.  The Z-AC helps overcome most problems associated with either inconsistency of the rough opening or margins between the sill and the door. Moreover, the flexibility of the sill cap materials and spring design allows the cap to adjust independently over the length of the door, resulting in a perfect seal even when one end of a 3/0 door system is under-compressed and the other end of the door system is over-compressed.

The Crystal Achievement Award winners will be honored in the September issue of Window & Door.  An awards presentation for all winners will be given at the GlassBuild America Show, September 10-12 in Atlanta.
