Mildgard Adds New Screen for Windows And Doors

PureView™ screen offers excellent visibility to the outside

SAN FRANCISCO (June 25, 2008) - Milgard Windows & Doors introduces its new PureView excellent visibility screen, making it possible for homeowners to focus on the outside view instead of the screen in front of them. The new screen is standard for builders and contractors on all fiberglass windows, Tuscany™ and Montecito™ Series vinyl windows and the ClassicTM Series line of patio doors.

PureView is made of a durable flame-retardant fiberglass mesh screen, making it suitable for window and door applications. The fiberglass construction is also strong enough to withstand high winds, making it a recommended product for coastal regions. The uniformity in the look of the new screen also creates an architect-pleasing curb appeal.

"The PureView screen is another example of how we are constantly looking to provide solutions that meet every one of our customer needs," said Maureen Faccia, Director of Marketing for Milgard. "By offering this screen on a variety of windows and doors, we are improving the look of the homes being built and the comfort of those moving in to those homes."

In addition to providing better visibility, PureView provides a multitude of benefits over other, standard screens. The benefits include improved light transmittance, better curb appeal when viewing windows from the street, excellent insect protection due to 30 percent smaller openings than standard screens and improved air flow as a result of increased openness.

Increased Airflow and Insect Protection

The fiberglass construction of the screen implements a system of yarns that are smaller in diameter, improving the overall openness by 5 percent over standard screen counterparts. These smaller yarns and extra openness block less of the homeowner's vision and allow increased light transmittance, even further enhancing the exterior view. It also improves airflow, allowing fresh breezes to flow through freely.

While the smaller yarn diameter increases openness by blocking less airflow and light, the holes in between the yarns are actually 30 percent smaller than standard fiberglass insect screens, resulting in exceptional protection against very small insects.
