ThermalBuck Recognized as Energy-Efficient Technology by Window & Door Magazine

ThermalBuck is proud to announce our inclusion in the Oct/Nov 2017 issue of Window & Door Magazine as part of the feature, “Energy Efficient Technology Showcase,” a collection of energy-efficient products for window and door dealers, as well as components for manufacturers.

ThermalBuck is a high-performance window buck that extends and insulates the mounting point for windows & doors to create a flush plane for cladding. Window & Door Magazine first introduced ThermalBuck in it’s “Manufacturing Issue” back in March/April 2016.

The Oct/Nov 2017 piece begins with the results of a monthly reader poll conducted this summer to gain insight on industry trends, and issues that matter to their readers. Specifically, how “green” and sustainable technologies drive their business models.

“More than 70% utilize energy-efficient, sustainable or green technologies, methods or products.”
-Window & Door Magazine, Oct/Nov. 2017 

The survey results made it quite clear that it was an extremely important consideration for readers, which was satisfied by the focus on energy-efficient products & components in the Oct/Nov 2017 issue.
