Viwinco Windows Part of Hurricane Resistance Gold Designation Honor

As forecasters predict an “above average” hurricane season, Viwinco is proud to be a part of North Carolina’s first house awarded the FORTIFIED for Existing Homes™ Hurricane Resistance Gold Designation by the Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).

OceanView hurricane windows used in FORTIFIED for Existing Homes™ program

Fortified Home in North Carolina with Viwinco WindowsMORGANTOWN, PA (August 10, 2011)— As forecasters predict an “above average” hurricane season, Viwinco is proud to be a part of North Carolina’s first house awarded the FORTIFIED for Existing Homes™ Hurricane Resistance Gold Designation by the Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).

Viwinco OceanView impact-resistant casement windows were selected for the Surf City, N.C., home that recently received the state’s first gold rating. OceanView windows are hurricane-rated and meet a structural wind speed rating of 171.2 mph and can withstand flying debris such as 2x4s up to 50 feet per second. To receive the gold designation, the home had to meet additional criteria involving its wall system, roof and other structural requirements.

FORTIFIED for Existing Homes was launched last year to help strengthen existing homes through retrofit techniques that will ward off damage from specific natural hazards including hurricanes, according to the IBHS website.

“I initially selected Viwinco for this project because I needed an affordable impact-rated window but it has been Viwinco’s quality, customer service and performance that have won my continued use for all future fortified projects,” says Tom Dugan, president of DEI Building Solutions.

Homes that achieve IBHS' FORTIFIED for Existing Homes designation may qualify for lower insurance rates depending on the individual insurance company. The Surf City home qualifies for incentives available in North Carolina's 18 coastal counties that are part of a rate filing by the North Carolina Rate Bureau and approved by the North Carolina Department of Insurance in 2010.

Morgantown's Viwinco has the Vinyl Touch

There is no doubt that David J. Barnes, 54, Berwyn, Chester County, is passionate about making windows. As the owner and president of Viwinco Inc., Morgantown, Barnes enjoys being a daily part of the manufacturing and testing processes of the windows made by his company. He is known by his 200-plus employees simply as Barney as he walks through his 140,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.

The Reading Eagle recently wrote a business profile about Viwinco. Here's the story written by David A. Kostival. To view it on the Reading Eagle website and see associated photos and sidebar stories. click here.

Viwinco Inc. has earned a reputation among customers and in its industry for its custom-made windows.

There is no doubt that David J. Barnes, 54, Berwyn, Chester County, is passionate about making windows.

As the owner and president of Viwinco Inc., Morgantown, Barnes enjoys being a daily part of the manufacturing and testing processes of the windows made by his company. He is known by his 200-plus employees simply as Barney as he walks through his 140,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.

Barnes founded Viwinco 29 years ago as a sister company to his father's building supply company. Jack E. Barnes and his business partner Lou Moretzsohn started that company in the Philadelphia area in 1958.

With the introduction of vinyl replacement windows in the 1970s, Barnes said he took an interest in the window manufacturing process and started the new company in 1982. But time hasn't changed Barnes' philosophy on how to build a good window.

"The only way to build my reputation is one window at a time," Barnes said. "We build a good product, deliver it on time and stand behind it."

The company has seen considerable growth over the past 29 years. "Our first year we made 7,000 windows; that's what we now make in one week," Barnes said. "Attention to detail is important, and we put that philosophy to work in the business."

But if you're in the market for new windows and like the idea of a Pennsylvania-made product, don't bother looking for Viwinco windows at your local building supply store. You can't find the Viwinco windows in any store because, Barnes said, his company has a unique business model.

"Everything is custom-made to order," Barnes explained. "Custom-made windows sound expensive, but they are actually less expensive than the national brands," Barnes said. "We studied production flow in order to be efficient. All of our work stations were designed by the people who actually work there."

In addition, Barnes said, the custom-made windows usually are delivered within one week.

The company's website can assist potential consumers in finding a contractor who installs Viwinco products.

While the company has remained somewhat low key on the local level, Barnes said he plays a major role in the industry. "We are considered a regional player, but everyone in the industry knows who we are," he said. Viwinco mainly supplies to contractors in the eastern U.S.

"We have always maintained a steady growth, but we didn't want to be a national company," he said. "It was more important to me to produce a quality product."

"I want us to be the best company that we can be. I could care less about being the biggest company. Quality of product is number one." In order to ensure quality, Viwinco does its own rigorous product testing.

A popular type of window the company makes is known as an impact resistant window, or hurricane window. The windows use interlayer technology to give them the ability to withstand large pieces of debris that can become airborne in a tornado or hurricane. The company tests the windows with a cannon that shoots a two-by-four at the window at 220 mph [editor's note: it's actually shot at 34 mph]. The inner layer of glass stops the flying debris from creating a void in the window frame, which only would cause further damage, Barnes said.

As the economy improves, Barnes said he expects his company to expand. "Our future targets new construction with impact resistant windows," he said. "This will become important, as the government has proposed stricter energy codes. And as those codes become more stringent, we have a product right here that the masses can afford."

Viwinco Receives Patent for Its Exclusive Tilt-n-Lock System

To make window cleaning easier and provide for a more unobstructed view, Viwinco developed its Tilt-n-Lock hardware system and just recently received a U.S. patent for its innovative design.

"Coast-to-coast" reinforcement system enables window tilting with one hand

Patented Tilt-n-Lock TechnologyMORGANTOWN, PA (May 17, 2011) -- To make window cleaning easier and provide for a more unobstructed view, Viwinco developed its Tilt-n-Lock hardware system and just recently received a U.S. patent for its innovative design.

Engineered with a “coast-to-coast” reinforcement system that goes from sash stile to sash stile, Tilt-n-Lock provides greater strength where the tilt latches engage with the meeting rail frame. Unlike traditional tilt latches that are routed into the sash and compromise the strength of the corner weld, Tilt-n-Lock brings all elements (tilt latches, reinforcement and cam lock) into a singular unit inserted into the sash through an access point in the stile. Under load, the routed area of a traditional tilt latch can open up and lead to failure. But in Tilt-n-Lock, the loads are transferred from the tilt latch to the reinforcing bar, thereby improving the structural and impact performance of the entire window system.

Tilt-n-Lock provides distributors and contractors with a unique selling opportunity. Benefits of the new tilt system include: easy operability (it’s the only system that allows tilt in with one hand and closing with just a push—no re-engaging of latches), an aesthetically pleasing profile and more effortless cleaning since tilt latches are removed allowing for one swipe cleaning.

“Tilt-n-Lock has revolutionized the vinyl window market,” says David Barnes, president of Viwinco, based in Morgantown, Pa. “When homeowners see one of our windows with Tilt-n-Lock in action, they immediately recognize and like its benefits.”

Tilt-n-Lock is a standard feature on Viwinco’s Cambridge replacement windows, OceanView impact-resistant windows and as an upgrade on its Viwinco S-Series new construction windows.
