Sierra Pacific Windows Sparks Design Inspiration
Signature design elements add value, differentiation and ‘wow’ factor.
Red Bluff, CA (February 19, 2019) – –Trends come and go. Fads fade fast. So,
Sierra Pacific Windows
is helping builders add value
to their projects with innovative, new design options -- that are current, but will stand the test of time.
Sierra Pacific Windows Sales & Marketing Vice President Dominic Truniger said, “Builders are always looking to differentiate
by capturing that allusive ‘wow factor.’ Sierra Pacific has a number of signature design elements that will do just that.
Whether they’re exterior textured finishes, urban casements and awnings, specialty doors, or expansive walls of glass,
we are big proponents of design inspiration to enhance the value of projects and a builder’s reputation.”
Sierra Pacific Windows created “Design Inspired” – a compendium of new products and inspired design ideas for builders –
that was unveiled at the 2019 International Builders’ Show
. Highlights include:
Exterior Textured Finishes.
Sierra Pacific has the most extensive catalog of exterior clad finishes, and is one of the only
window manufacturers to offer textured finishes. Currently, the hottest trending textured finish is Peppered Steel, which
achieves a deeper rich black note with a velvety grit. This modern industrial finish gives both residential and commercial
buildings the high-end look of steel that blends nicely with nearly any architectural style. Other finishes, such as Cajun
Spice and Pesto, also offer eye-catching design touches. Sierra Pacific offers more standard exterior finishes than any
other manufacturer in the industry -- with 70 powder coat and 5 anodized finishes. “Using nature as our guide, we're
constantly searching for new, different, and beautiful choices to inspire design ideas,” Truniger said.
Contemporary Urban Casement and Awning Windows. Sierra Pacific’s Urban Casement
and Awning windows are setting a new standard in contemporary design and modern
industrial aesthetics with one of the narrowest sightlines in the industry
and beautiful, new contemporary hardware. A trending contemporary design concept
is painting the interior black and combining it with a Peppered Steel exterior—for
a dramatic effect.
Ultra Coat Black. Continuing on the topic of creating design impact with the color black,
there’s high demand for Sierra Pacific’s Ultra Coat Black, a striking interior finish for most
wood products. “Black is one of the hottest design trends to emerge in recent years, and it
just keeps growing,” said Truniger.
Signature Entrance with Pivot Doors. Sierra Pacific’s new Pivot Doors provide a bold
and modern design aesthetic that sets them apart from any other entrance door.
Strategically engineered to float inside their frame (on pins mounted at the top and
bottom), these doors offer clean lines and a simplicity of form and function.
New Pocketing Lift & Slide Doors. Sierra Pacific’s Lift & Slide doors are now available in
a popular pocketing configuration. The advanced mechanics seem to defy gravity as
expanses of glass up to 45' wide by 10' high can be stowed out of sight.
New Double Hung Windows. The new Westchester Double Hung window is a game
changer, as it takes the nostalgic beauty of a century-old classic and gives it a complete
upgrade. Design and engineering features include narrow check rail sightlines, historically
accurate sash proportions, unprecedented structural and thermal performance, and a
patent-pending traditionally styled combination sash lock.
Walls of Glass. There’s not a bigger wow factor than the innovative wall designs inspired
by Sierra Pacific’s Architectural Wall Systems. Whether it’s for large daylight openings
for contemporary residential designs or for commercial curtain wall applications, this
timber curtain wall meets or exceeds today's high energy standards. Designers are being
inspired to incorporate doors, operable windows, use them as structural corner units, or in
wall creations over 14' high.
There are a lot more design inspirations where these came from, Truniger said. In this highly
competitive industry, differentiation is key. Sierra Pacific Windows, which offers uncompromising
craftsmanship, attention to detail, and a vast array of options, is an inspired choice.
