Join us at the Rangate Open House!
High Performance is a hot topic in the window industry these days- wood's natural ability to perform structurally and thermally means that our industry is primed for growth as both consumers and the law demand ever-better performance in comfort, hygiene, and durability. But how does a window achieve high performance, and how does a shop set and reach that goal? This Open House event will feature live demonstrations of machining, assembly, and finishing for a European-style tilt and turn window, with industry professionals from the disciplines of window design, production and equipment planning, joinery and manufacturing crafts all present. We know "It starts with knowledge...", and it continues with conversation- After the demonstrations, there will be a follow-up one-hour session networking session to discuss high performance windows and doors styles in North America.
