AuraLast wood, an option now available for all Pozzi Custom Collection wood windows and doors, provides increased protection against wood decay, water absorption, and termite infestation, according to the maker. The solid Western pine wood windows are pressure-treated in a water-based process that achieves nearly 100 percent penetration of the active preservative ingredients, ensuring nail and screw holes do not compromise the windows' resistance to moisture and insects. 800. 877.9482. www.jeld-wen.com.
Cadence and Heirlooms designs are now available in the maker's line of Decorative Bath Windows. Cadence (shown) uses patina caming in combination with vertigo glass, ripple glass, and clear bevel clusters to create a geometric floral design. The energy-efficient windows feature insulated tempered glass with an outer layer of obscure glass that ensures privacy while transmitting light. 800.253.3900. www.odl.com.
Available on all of the manufacturer's vinyl replacement or new construction windows or doors, PrismGrid offers the appearance of custom beveled glass using a patented optical film from 3M that is applied between two panes of window glazing. Five stock patterns are available, but nearly any straight-lined decorative pattern can be made, the manufacturer says. 800.233.8990. www.certainteed.com.
The manufacturer's slider windows now come standard with anti-lift blocks that allow for adjustment to three heights, a solution for out-of-square openings. The anti-lift blocks also increase security in the slider windows, allowing the sash to lift out from the inside for cleaning while simultaneously thwarting attempts to lift the sash out from the outside. 800.248.1775. www.republicwindows.com.
System 4500 tilt-turn architectural windows are constructed of vinyl and feature a multi-point locking system and concealed hardware that allow the window to operate off a single handle as both a casement and a tilt-in. A dual sealing system with an uninterrupted inner compression seal blocks the elements. The windows can be configured in bay, bow, awning, hopper, picture, and specialty arch-top styles. 800. 247.9445. www.rehau-na.com.
