ProSalesNational News: ABSi makes National News again on June 24th 2016 in “Pro Sales 100’s Next 10” article. Which companies are most likely to make the ProSales 100 next year? These 10 are among the best candidates. Some of them, like Deterring, have been on the PS100 in the past but suffered from a comparatively weak market. Others, like Associated Building Supply are growing faster than the PS100 average but have yet to achieve the volume needed, particularly given that our rankings are based on sales to pros. ABSI is competing with National Lumber Chains who ‘s sales revenue is a conglomeration of plumbing, lumber, electrical, windows, etc. ABSi only sells windows and doors! We'll be keeping an eye on ABSi when we publish our 2017 report.” Read the full article HERE.

JW3JELD-WEN Windows & Doors has raised the bar with its striking entry doors that are a sure-fire way to add value and immediate street-appeal to your home. They offer innovative improvements to its pioneering pivot door system for the hot new trend of taller, wider entry doors.



The pivot door system introduced by Corinthian Doors, a member of the JELD-WEN Windows and Doors family, handles the weight of taller and wider entry doors that have become a dominant feature in modern design. Corinthian’s popular Sunburst range is one of the most stunning of the entry door suite and has proved popular for those looking to maximize the value of their home by enhancing its immediate impact. With funky design elegance and strong lines reflecting the radiating power of the sun, the Sunburst double-door sets comes in bold, symmetrical designs: Sunburst Grand and Sunburst Arc. The creative range also comes in seven glazing options, each of which is enhanced using a new splayed glazing bead profile. Sunburst doors can be stained or painted.

JW2The innovative pivot door systems have become standard across the JELD-WEN Windows and Doors entry door range and have set new standards for entry doors across the residential building industry.

The pivot system means the weight of the door is carried at the top and bottom rather than on traditional hinged jambs. The system offers a self-closing mechanism that holds the door in a fully open position so that entering the home is unobtrusive and when released from the open position the door will automatically close shut.
