Products Cedar shake alternative with integrated locking system NATURAL EXTERIORS premium cedar shake sidings deliver a low-maintenance alternative to natural painted cedar. All panels and trim pieces utilize Tru-Lock to ensure the polymer shake sid- ing panels are seamlessly held together and can move as temperatures change without exposing seams. Each panel features random edges that lock together, further creating the look and feel of cedar shake without leaving openings for bugs, mildew or mold. More than 36 colors are avail- able—including Standard, Premium and Custom color lines plus Quick Ship options. Circle 21 on inquiry card System speeds installation of doors EXPR Door Install Kits, by INSTALLINGADOOR.COM, can be used for installing any prehung door—including inte- rior, exterior, hollow and heavy solid core—without the has- sle of shimming. The steel bracket system remains in the wall after installation and is covered by the casing; there are also no nail holes to patch after the install because of this. Quick alignment tabs help with positioning the bracket in the appropriate location, and the system works on any width of door jamb/frame. Circle 22 on inquiry card Weather, moisture management for open joint cladding BENJAMIN OBDYKE launches its UV-rated Open Joint Cladding System—comprising InvisiWrap UV, HydroFlash UV and Batten UV—which is covered by a 25-year performance warranty when used together. The InvisWrap UV is an unprint- ed, matte black nonwoven housewrap that can be used with siding openings up to 2 in. HydroFlash UV+ self-adhered flash- ing can be used for penetration flashing and covering furring strips so they're invisible behind open joints. Batten UV can be used to create a ⁄-in. rainscreen gap for optimal drainage and drying. Circle 24 on inquiry card Addition of in-glass blinds to window series MI WINDOWS AND DOORS introduces the option to order blinds-between-the-glass for its 1650 double-hung, 1650 picture, 1675 case- ment and 1675 picture windows. Available with all window color options—including interior and exterior laminates and painted products—the blinds-between-the-glass come in white and feature raise, lower and tilt/turn operation settings. Because the blinds are sandwiched between two panes of glass, these have a lon- ger lifespan than traditional blinds that have manual manipulation. All windows ordered with this option feature a four-week lead time. Circle 26 on inquiry card Self-adhering flashing in three sizes TAMKO TW Flash-N-Wrap Pro helps ensure a tight seal around window and door perimeters to keep moisture out, reduce airflow and improve energy efficiency. Tested to meet strict endurance requirements that allow it to be left exposed up to 180 days, the self-adhering flashing features a treated release film on its adhesive side. Joining the company's extensive waterproofing solutions, the flashing comes in 4-, 6- and 9-in. rolls that fit a range of projects.
