Hurd Unveils Double Hung Version of H3 Window

The H3 is the most option-rich, mid-priced double hung on the market.

Medford, WI – October 13, 2011 – Hurd Windows and Doors has expanded upon a highly popular product line with its new H3 double hung window. The H3 casement window was considered groundbreaking when it was introduced less than two years ago. Based on this same award-winning platform, company officials are confident the new H3 double hung window is destined to be a trend setting option as well.

Hurd's mid-range priced H3 casement debuted in January 2009. Its Fusion Technology integrates three materials – extruded aluminum, vinyl and solid wood – into one unique window with improved energy efficiency, enhanced performance, appealing aesthetics, easy installation and an extreme seal. Shortly after the H3's introduction, it won the Crystal Achievement Award for innovation from Window & Door magazine. Since then, it has been a huge success with architects, builders and homeowners alike.

Hurd's new H3 double hung window model includes the same cutting-edge design, performance and features as the award-winning casement. The H3 has distinguished itself as an option-rich, mid-priced double hung. One of its most attractive attributes is its concealed wood jambliner and easy-tilt operation for effortless cleaning—just like custom built, high-end windows. The double hung is available with an integral nailing fin for new construction and in Hurd’s Transcend line for replacements as an insert window, as is the rest of the H3 product offering.

"According to our research, double-hung styles are favored by consumers for both new construction and replacement windows. Likewise, the H3's Energy Star® rating, exceptional seal and curb appeal are qualities that homeowners expect these days," said Hurd Vice President of Products and Services Stuart Brown. "The H3 double-hung model was a natural development for fulfilling the needs of people who value the benefits offered by this style of window."

Double-hung windows provide almost a guaranteed value because they are both functional and stylish. These windows have two independently operating window panes that can be lowered or raised. Their sliding frames are easy to open, allow fresh air into the home and tilt-out versions are a snap to clean. They have a classic look and, when placed in groups, they can be an attractive alternative to solid glass picture windows. Double-hung windows are found in many homes and are practically standard in remodel and replacement projects.
