The Andersen Reinforced Joining options provides enhanced performance and jobsite convenience with three joining options for windows. Utilizing the strength and durability of fiberglass construction, the joining options offer the design flexibility of achieving one- and two-way combinations. With the Easy Connect Joining System, large window combinations are split into smaller sub-group combinations that are factory assembled, have all necessary joining components applied and arrive ready to install directly into the rough opening. Eliminating the need for jobsite assembly, the Fully Joined Combination produces fully joined, factory-assembled window combinations to fit rough openings up to 12- by 8-ft. or 8- by 12-ft. Individual units can be joined into a window combination on a jobsite using the Easy Connect Joining Kit prior to installation.
The three systems are tested to AAMA 450 requirements; impact-certified for Florida’s High Velocity Hurricane Zone; and are Hallmark-certified for air, water and structural performance.
The Easy Connect Joining System received recognition as the winner of Best in Show and as the Best Window & Door Product from the Best of IBS 2019 awards.
