Win-Dor's NEW 1550 Lock System

Category: Windows

Effective November 1st, Win-Dor will be updating the 1550 window system locks. This update will include all sliding and single hung configurations. Orders that are placed in mid October will be manufactured with the new lock. 

Will this change affect you?

If you previously installed windows into a home using our older lock system, and still have additional windows to order and install, there’s a good possibility that you’ll end up with mismatched styles of locks.  You can request new locks to replace the old locks by writing us at [email protected].  

When ordering service replacement locks it’s important to make sure you ask for the correct lock, self-latching or cam lock style. We will be carrying a few self-latching locks on hand for these occasions.

Otherwise, both new and old locks are installed using the same tools and methods, so this shouldn’t create any confusion with your installers.

We’re excited about this change and we hope that it makes things easier for you.  Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

To our valued customers:

The coming of the New Year brings us all new opportunities and hopefully new customers.  In an effort to improve and enhance our product offering, WinDor Inc. is proud to announce a complete product change beginning in January. It has been no small undertaking to accomplish, and we are excited to present the changes to our customers. There are many small changes that allow us manufacturing benefits, improved efficiencies and overall performance, increase in production capacity and installation enhancements. All at the same time, these changes help us maintain the consistent high quality standards you have come to expect from WinDor along with controlling cost containment as a top goal. We succeeded!

The callout of the products will change. The current 2200 patio door and folding window systems will become the 2750 series. The 2300 multi-slide and folding door systems will become the 3750 series. What is the meaning of the system designation? The 2750 series refers to a sash/panel stile and rail overall width of 2 ¾” (2.750) and the 3750 is an overall width of 3 ¾” (3.750). It is a slightly wider panel profile than the current 2200 at 2 ⅝” and the 2300 at 3 ⅜”.

With all the changes that have been made there will be little visual impact to the customer. Any builder using the WinDor product can be switched over with no impact or concerns about looking different than what may already be in a model home.

The implementation date will be as follows;

  • Patio Doors systems – Any order placed after January 1st 2018 will receive the new 2750 profile
  • Multi-slide systems – Any order placed after January 1st 2018 will receive the new 2750 profile
  • Folding Door systems – Any order placed after April 1st 2018 will receive the new 3750 profile
  • Folding Window systems – Any order placed after April 1st 2018 will receive the new 3750 profile

Please see the following by product type changes.

Shelley and Joshua from TinyHouseBasics.com

Shelly and Joshua over at TinyHouseBasics.com recently featured one of Win-Dor’s folding windows in a recent video demonstration.

They say that the window is one of their favorite features of their house and that it really makes the space. That makes us happy.
