Best of IBS Awards

Andersen is honored to be awarded the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) Best in Show and Best Window & Door Product for our Easy Connect Joining System.  Winners were chosen from over 300 entries in nine categories.  At last week’s show, 31 judges selected their favorites based on three criteria: Innovation, Functionality and Good Design & Builder/Consumer Friendly.  

Our new Easy Connect Joining System delivers the ultimate in job site conveniences, making it easier to install large combinations. In fact, most contractors surveyed said they could reduce the number of installers by 50% using the Andersen Easy Connect Joining System.*

This patented joining system utilizes interlocking fiberglass joining plates and offers design flexibility without compromising performance, so you can achieve multi-directional combinations and meet higher performance requirements. 


*69% of 156 builders/general contractors in a 2018 survey said they could reduce the number of installers by half using the Easy Connect Joining System when comparing the installation of a 12’ wide x 8’ high pre-assembled window combination unit with four (4) 3’ wide x 8’ high window combination units.
