Lauren Mfg iDea Seal Added to AAMA Verified Components List
Lauren Manufacturing’s iDea™ Seal recently passed AAMA 701/702-04 for Replaceable Fenestration Weatherseals and will be added to the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s Verified Components List. The iDea™ Seal has a co-polymer design which benefits window and door manufacturers through reduced labor and manufacturing costs while providing a superior seal. These benefits are a result of the seal’s rigid base which allows for easy channel installation during assembly.
The AAMA’s Verified Components List documents all window and door component manufacturers who have submitted samples for testing to an AAMA Accredited Independent Laboratory and those samples were found to be in full compliance with the specification.
“While most of our products are custom designed, we are happy to also offer components verified to meet industry standards of AAMA specifications 702-04” said Sheryl Ashleman, Lauren’s Market Manager for Building & Construction.
The EPDM bulb, offered in dense or sponge, provides outstanding sealing properties including excellent compression set, abrasion resistance and a broader temperature range than plastics. The 70 durometer and grade 2 sponge EPDM bulbs have passed ASTM specification for cold cracking and cold flex bond testing along with ASTM stain resistant specification D-925 & 925B. Lauren’s iDea Seal technology is also available in custom designed profiles to fit custom window needs.
