Date: 19 October 2011
MEDFORD, WI--(Marketwire - Oct 17, 2011) - Hurd Windows and Doors announced that with the introduction of its new Eco System, the Medford-based company now offers the broadest range of performance glazing options in the industry.

The Hurd Eco System is a complete, integrated system that provides the leading energy efficient options along with sun control, fade protection, noise reduction, home security and even hurricane protection. It gives homeowners the most comfort-options of any residential windows on the market.

According to company officials, Hurd's Eco System offers a new level of high-efficiency insulated glass units. The flagship windows, Hurd Ultra-R, are at least three times as efficient as ordinary insulated glass windows. While an ordinary window might achieve an R-value of 2, Ultra-R windows are rated from an impressive center of glass R-6 to an unprecedented R-20. Ultra-R windows utilize Heat Mirror suspended film technology along with low-E coated glass and gas filling to offer amazing insulation values, great sun control/fade protection and improved noise reduction.

The lifeblood of the Eco System is Hurd's vast selection of window glazing options. In addition to a full complement of thermal insulation options, Eco System offers a broad range of sun control options. Super Sun Blocker utilizes triple silver coating and tinting to reduce solar heat gain while maintaining high visibility. Super Sun Blocker with IS-15 adds a special coating to boost dual-pane thermal performance to R-5 center of glass. For colder climates, Low-E 180 Passive Solar glazing has a high solar heat gain coefficient to capture the sun's heat. Other sun control glazing options include Low-E 366 and Solarban 70XL.

For the ultimate sun control, ClimaGuard SPF can be added to Hurd Low-E glass and Super Sun Blocker. ClimaGuard SPF blocks 99.9 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation to dramatically reduce fading and extend the useful life of furniture, carpeting, wood flooring and other furnishings. ClimaGuard SPF is the only glazing solution recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

"Obviously, every home's windows are unique. That's why we offer more glazing options than other window companies," said Hurd Windows and Doors President and CEO Dominic Truniger. "Eco System wood windows can help save money on heating/cooling, save furnishings from sun or storm damage, increase security, block a baseball, even regulate daylighting -- no matter what the requirement -- we think Hurd has the answer," Truniger concluded.

In addition to the Eco System, Hurd's many styles of windows and doors are popular with new construction homes and for replacement wood windows as homeowners seek attractive, energy efficient options. For copies of Hurd Windows and Doors' new Full Line catalog, e-mail or call 800-433-4873.
