Andersen Corporation introduces the A-Series product line: a full complement of windows and patio doors that provide the broadest range of colors and design options ever available from Andersen and exceed most energy-efficiency performance standards.

The A-Series product line is the most energy-efficient line of windows and doors Andersen has ever produced; from a company known for setting industry standards for energy efficiency and sustainability going back more than a half century. A-Series products meet the new 2010 U.S.ENERGY STAR® performance criteria that becomes effective January 4, 2010 and are available in custom sizing.
- The most efficient line of products Andersen has ever produced

- Matching exterior trim is a snap to install
- Meets the new 2010 U.S. ENERGY STAR® criteria
- Custom sizing to meet the needs of designers and architects
A-Series products are designed to work together with consistent profiles and accent windows that allow architects the ease of choosing different styles of windows for the same home without sacrificing the overall look of the architectural style. Why is that important? “Because window placement sometimes makes operation difficult,” said Brian Gunderson, A-Series product marketing manager for Andersen. “A casement window over a sink, for instance, is easier to open than a double-hung. Homeowners can better appreciate a home designed for easy living and architects will find the flexibility expands the design possibilities.”
Additionally, A-Series products are available in three interior wood species, nine prefinished interiors and 11 standard exterior colors for windows and doors. Extensive research and field testing among consumers and homeowners was conducted to determine the colors and stains offered based on trend and style data throughout the U.S. housing market.
The complementary trim system is available in six profiles to match any architectural style. Colors include all 11 exterior colors available in windows and doors to match or contrast with a home’s color scheme. A-Series trim is made of Fibrex® material, a proprietary wood fiber and vinyl composite material developed by Andersen in the early 1990s. Fibrex material never needs painting and won’t flake, rot, blister, peel, pit or corrode*. The trim system is not part of the water management system of the ASeries product line, which simplifies installation and allows for proper installation. Trim installation takes just minutes with an easy snap-in system designed especially for the A-Series products.
A-Series windows and doors will be rolled out in select markets throughout the U.S. in 2010.
