Western Window Systems is announcing a change to a certain part that will begin appearing on its bi-fold doors.
Centor, an Australian firm with U.S. operations headquartered in Chicago, manufactures the hardware that appears on Western Window Systems’ bi-fold products. The company has dictated the change to an adjustment screw it says will make the bi-fold system easier to adjust.
“We want our dealers to be aware and ready for the change,” says Cameron Wyatt, Western Window Systems vice president of design and supply chain. “So once they see the new part, they will know how to adjust the hardware.”
Centor’s new Surelock 5 technology is a straightforward replacement designed to ensure that bi-fold doors employing the company’s E3 hardware can be adjusted simply with an Allen key.
Wyatt stresses that dealers and customers should not recognize any noticeable difference in the products. “There are no changes to the products’ performance or aesthetics,” he says.
Centor will be rolling out this change as current inventory becomes depleted.
