  • Publication number: 20210102406
    Abstract: A multipoint lock is described. The multipoint lock includes a main latch. The main latch has a latched position where the main latch is configured to extend a first distance from an unhinged edge of a door panel. The main latch is configured to be retractable toward the unhinged edge of the door panel by rotation of a latch drive hub in each of a clockwise direction and a counterclockwise direction relative to a first side of the door panel. The multipoint lock also includes at least one auxiliary latch and a deadbolt drive hub. Rotation of the deadbolt drive hub substantially simultaneously actuates the main latch and the at least one auxiliary latch.

  • Patent number: 9624716
    Abstract: A spacer for sealing a joint between a first component and a second component of an entryway. The spacer may include substantially rigid support and a first gasket having a first uncompressed thickness (T1). The first gasket is attached to a first surface of the support. The first surface has at least one first boss extending therefrom by a distance (D1) such that (D1) is less than (T1). The at least one first boss is configured to abut a portion of the first component to provide the desired compression of the first gasket between the first component and the support.

  • Patent number: 9428954
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a corner pad for an entryway. The corner pad may have a mounting surface configured for attachment to a frame member. The corner pad may also have a sealing surface opposite from the mounting surface. At least a portion of the sealing surface corresponds with a sealing region designed to seal against a stile of a door panel. A profile of the sealing surface within the sealing region is non-linear. Thus the profile creates a varied thickness of the corner pad within the sealing region to provide varying levels of compression when sealing with the stile, and to accommodate variations in a margin between the frame member and the stile.

  • Publication number: 20070289219
    Abstract: A casement window assembly includes a hinged sash window pivotally mounted within a window frame. The casement window assembly has a sash lift mechanism having a base and a moveable member. The base is mounted on the window frame. The moveable member is pivotally supported by the base. In instances where the sash window may become misaligned within the window frame, the moveable member engages the sash window as the sash window moves to its closed position. The moveable member provides a lift force to the sash window to enhance the alignment of the sash window as the sash window is placed in the closed position.
