Lincoln Glazing Packages Target Canada and Northern US

Merrill, WI. (February 26, 2014) – Specific markets require specialized glass packages, prompting Lincoln to offer additional Low E glazing options. These options, combined with a newly upgraded insulated glass line now utilizing Intercept’s Stainless Steel Spacer, provide glazing selections to meet the Northern US and Canada ENERGY STAR® requirements.

Computer engineered intercept spacers have a proven track record for consistent quality, fair prices and good insulating performance.

Utilizing LoĒ-180 is a natural choice for meeting the Canadian ENERGY STAR® program requirements without the added expense of triple pane glass. The beneficial properties of LoĒ-180, such as good U-Value numbers with solar heat gain, provide exceptional consumer value.

Lincoln Windows Chooses AAMA 2605 Paint for Clad Products - February 12, 2014

Lincoln Windows Chooses AAMA 2605 Paint for Clad Products

Merrill, WI. (February 12, 2014) – Build with confidence by utilizing extruded aluminum clad Lincoln Windows and Patio Doors now supplied with the increased protection of AAMA 2605 paint, AAMA’s most stringent paint specification for painted aluminum finishes.

Aluminum has many strengths as a building material (design flexibility, product choice, strength, longevity, and availability) but to maximize these strengths, it should be covered with quality paint. Moving up to the highest standard is fitting with Lincoln’s long-term goal of being your preferred window supplier.

AAMA 2605 paint is perfect for light commercial applications when color-matching extends to aluminum storefront material, steel roofing, siding and other ornate parts where metal is commonly used and accepted.

Lincoln only uses strong .050 extruded aluminum exteriors for both frame and sash components. Extruded aluminum is formed and then painted so adhesion is better versus painting roll-form type aluminum and then forming it around window parts.

The natural enemies of painted surfaces include: heat, UV, airborne chemicals, salt water and temperature fluctuations. These lead to chalk and fade issues that equal premature aging. AAMA 2605 paint performance is simply far superior.

That’s exactly why Lincoln now offers a 10-year paint warranty.

New Lifestyle Double Hung- September 24, 2013

New Lifestyle Double Hung

Merrill, WI. (September 24, 2013) – Lincoln brings a contemporary feel to the new construction and remodeling markets with the introduction of the Lifestyle Double Hung window for their Distinction, Harmony and Traditions Collections. The Lifestyle Double Hung is the combination of style, performance and affordability that builders and architects have been asking for.

Visually, the Lifestyle DH is clearly designed with aesthetics in mind. Both sash are built using equal glass and utilize matching stiles and rails for clean sightlines. Recessed flat style jambliners with no visible weatherstrip, 8° sloped sill and low-profile tilt latches and sash locks help to add to the contemporary appearance.

The Lifestyle Double Hung doesn’t force you to choose style over substance. This window was designed for performance and function by utilizing the best components from our other double hung window lines. The Lifestyle features mortise and tenon sash joinery, inverted block and tackle balances, interlocking and weatherstripped checkrails and a myriad of energy saving high performance glass options. In addition the Traditions Collection features cPVC sill and sill nosing, with optional cPVC brickmould, while the Distinction Collection comes with .050 thick extruded aluminum sash and frame.

Another great facet of the Lifestyle Double Hung is matching transoms and picture windows for clean mulls and profile continuity. Lincoln has also positioned the Lifestyle Double Hung to fit comfortably into the tight budgets that today’s builders and architects face on every project.

Lincoln Introduces New Slide-A-Way Patio Door - September 19, 2012

Lincoln Introduces New Slide-A-Way Patio Door

Merrill, WI. (September 19, 2012) – Specifications for premium homes and light commercial spaces often call for incredibly large and distinguishing door systems. Lincoln’s new Slide-A-Way system is an uncomplicated answer to this design requirement.

The Slide-A-Way door is available in configurations from one to ten panels. This is the ideal product for covering a span nearly 38 feet wide with the option to slide panels totally from one side and open fully in one direction, either left or right handed, or function as a bi-parting unit. Bi-parting doors have opposing panels meeting in the middle of the door utilizing an astragal at the connection point.

Designed as a pocketing door, panels neatly rest into a specially designed wall cavity providing a minimalist view of the door framing. A stacking door is a more traditional installation allowing all panels to reside over the last panel in the series.

Contemporary designers can increase glass area and lessen sash framing by choosing Lincoln’s narrow stiles and rails, measuring 2-1/2”. Opt for wide stiles and rails (measuring 4-7/8”) when directing focus to an alternative wood species or to compliment swing doors that are in close proximity.

A thoughtful designer will approve of the closed doors’ appearance where floor coverings run right up to the staggered tracks. Tracks are then hidden from sight. The flat sill creates relatively unobstructed access through an open door. Polypropylene rollers glide easily on the track-even on the largest door units.

Clients save time with Lincoln Patio Doors as they match their window package including: cladding and hardware colors, energy efficient glass, grilles and wood species.

Lincoln products are backed by a great warranty, built with care in the USA and serviced through your local dealer.

Unique Quantum series product attributes:

  • Historically dimensioned 3-1/4” bottom rail.
  • Massive sizes available up to 5’ wide X 10’ tall.

New Chapter Begins for Lincoln Windows - August 24, 2011

New Chapter Begins for Lincoln Windows

Merrill, WI. (August 24, 2011) – On April 10th, the Lincoln Windows final assembly plant and corporate offices were severely damaged by a category EF3 tornado that went through Merrill, Wisconsin. Less than 4 months after the tornado struck, on August 9th 2010, Lincoln employees and contractors celebrated the completion of the rebuilding with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Initial estimates indicated that the plant would be facing a 6 month shutdown for major repairs. Fortunately, the Lincoln management team chose a very aggressive reconstruction plan resulting in an earlier completion date while simultaneously allowing some production to remain in the plant.

The process wasn't without challenges. Construction crews and Lincoln employees had to deal with limited communication capability, cold weather, rain and even snow. As if the physical challenges weren't enough, the company was struck an emotional blow when Jane Bierman, Lincoln's owner and co-founder, passed away at the age of 91.

The hardships shared by the employees have brought everyone together and strengthened the family atmosphere that Carl & Jane Bierman always sought. This ribbon cutting became more than just celebrating the completion of a large project, it marked a symbolic starting point for a new beginning, a fresh optimistic outlook for the future and the opportunity to continue the Bierman legacy.

Community members and employees gather for a ribbon cutting ceremony.

It's been through the efforts of many individuals that we have been able to resume production so soon after the tornado hit our community. Lincoln is extremely proud of its employees and we are very appreciative of our vendors and customers who have supported us while our production was down. We look forward to being able to continue Jane Bierman's legacy of excellence for generations to come.

Lincoln Owner Jane Bierman Passaway at 91 - May 10, 2011

Lincoln Owner Jane Bierman Passes Away at 91

Merrill, WI. (May 10, 2011) – On Thursday, April 29th, Jane Bierman, the co-founder and owner of Lincoln Windows and Timeline Vinyl Windows, passed away at the age of 91. Jane was actively running the company until she suffered a stroke earlier this year.

Jane and her husband Carl founded Lincoln Wood Products, Inc. in 1947. Together, they started manufacturing many types of wood products and components. In the 1960's, the company evolved to be a manufacturer of complete wood window and patio door systems. Very attuned to changes in the industry, in 1994, Jane & Carl established Timeline Vinyl Products, Inc., an all vinyl window manufacturer, to compliment their very successful wood line. From early on, the focus was on brand loyalty, ethical business practices, customer service and treating customers as friends.

After Carl's death in 2002, Jane continued and even expanded her involvement in the companies and many local community organizations. During her career, Jane deservedly received many awards and accolades at the state and local level for her industry achievements and generosity within the community.

Both Lincoln and Timeline will endeavor to maintain the same level of manufacturing excellence and customer service that Jane & Carl have demanded and expected over the past 67 years. The entire Lincoln and Timeline family are deeply saddened by this loss and will miss Jane's leadership and friendship greatly. Her compassion, drive and guidance will serve as a benchmark as the companies continue her legacy.

Lincoln Facilities Struck by Tornado

Down but not out!

Merrill, WI. (April 16, 2011) – On April 10th, our corporate offices and final assembly plant were severely damaged by a category F3 tornado that hit Merrill, Wisconsin. This was one of eleven confirmed tornadoes that hit our state that day.

Locally, over 60 homes and 12 businesses were either damaged or destroyed. Even though the area was heavily hit, only minor injuries were suffered in the community. The only injury at Lincoln was sustained by a security guard. Luckily, the tornado impacted on a Sunday evening when personnel were not working.

Contrary to negative marketing being conducted by some competitors, Lincoln's production facilities are not a "total loss" and have not been "destroyed." Lincoln maintains multiple production locations in Merrill and fortunately only the final assembly plant and offices were damaged. We are repositioning the departments that were affected to our other facilities and plan to resume production within the next 3 weeks. Communications are still limited, but should be reestablished soon.

Our Timeline facility was not damaged by the tornado and is fully operational now that shared computer operations have been restored. Production has already resumed on existing and incoming orders.

The community has really come together in the support of the businesses and homeowners affected by the tornado and we are once again reminded how blessed we are to live in this area. We also wish to thank our dealers, vendors and even some of our competitors who have so generously offered to assist us during this time. Their thoughtfulness will be remembered.

Lincoln Aids in Preventing Childhood Injuries and Deaths

Now offering sash limiters for double hung windows.

Merrill, WI. (March 31, 2010) – Every year thousands of children in the United States are injured from falling out windows. As National Window Safety Week approaches (April 4th-10th), Lincoln encourages all consumers in the market for double hung windows to install fall prevention devices to help reduce accidental falls. Lincoln's new optional sash limiters meet the requirements of ASTM F2090 and are available in two finishes, including white and chrome. Lincoln also offers sash limiters for their line of casement windows.

ASTM F2090 (2008): Standard Specification for Window Fall Prevention Devices With Emergency (Egress) Release Mechanisms establishes requirements for devices intended to address the risk of injury and death associated with accidental falls from windows by children five years old and younger.

ASTM-compliant window opening control devices, such as those offered by Lincoln:

  • Allow a window to be opened less than 4 inches.
  • Allow a window to be fully opened if needed as a means of escape or rescue in an emergency.
  • Resets automatically every time the window is opened.

Window Safety Tips

  1. Windows often serve as a means of escape during an emergency, such as a fire. Be prepared by having an emergency escape plan. Practice it regularly as a family and teach children how to safely exit through windows. Make sure each window opens easily and is free from clutter.
  2. When children are around, keep windows closed and locked. If ventilation is needed, open windows they cannot reach.
  3. Unattended children run the greatest risk of falls, so they should always be supervised by an adult while playing. Teach children not to play near windows and keep furniture and other items they can use as a climbing aid away from windows.
  4. Do not depend on screens to prevent falls. Instead, install fall prevention devices that meet American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) requirements, featuring quick release mechanisms that allow for easy escape during an emergency.

Lincoln Expands Energy Efficient Product Selection - March 25, 2010

Lincoln Expands Energy Efficient Product Selection

More products meet energy tax requirements.

Merrill, WI. (March 25, 2010) – The government's Economic Stimulus Package offers homeowners federal tax credits for making qualified improvements to their homes, which includes purchasing and installing energy efficient windows and patio doors from Lincoln.

Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, homeowners can receive a federal tax credit of 30% of the cost of eligible products up to a total of $1500. Qualifying products must have both a U-Factor and a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) of 0.30 or lower. Federal requirements also stipulate that qualified products must be installed between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2010.

Windows and patio doors rely heavily on glazing performance to meet performance numbers. Lincoln's new Dual Low-E glass packages tackle these program requirements by combining either LoĒ² or LoĒ³-366™ with a pyrolytic (hardcoat) low-e surface. This energy efficient glass lowers U-Values and retains more of the costly heat inside in the Northern and North/Central zones and blocks solar gain by reflecting heat in the South/Central and Southern zones.

Replacing old leaky or worn out windows and patio doors is easy with Lincoln's wide selection of products. Doing so not only reduces energy costs, but can add style and comfort to any home. For a complete list of eligible products, please visit their website at www.lincolnwindows.com.

Merrill, WI. (September 22, 2008) – Lincoln announces the addition of BetterVue screens to their vast array of product options.

BetterVue screens are constructed utilizing a fire-retardant charcoal fiberglass yarn that is smaller in diameter than standard fiberglass screens. The smaller yarn improves the openness of the screen providing homeowners with better visibility, increased light transmittance, greater airflow and improved curb appeal.

In addition to having a smaller yarn, the mesh is woven in a tighter weave creating smaller holes. These smaller holes extend the screen’s benefits by providing enhanced protection from small insects (no-see-ums), debris and dust.

LoE366, Neat & Preserve now available.

Merrill, WI. (June 24, 2008) – In addition to standard insulating, LoE2, and specialty glasses, Lincoln has partnered with Cardinal Glass Industries and is now offering LoE366, Neat and Preserve for its windows and patio doors.

Controlling solar heat gain just became easier with the unparalleled performance of LoE366 glass technology. Three microscopic layers of silver sealed in the airspace block solar gain and reflect heat more effectively, keeping homes cooler during warmer months.

Another goal with any high performance glazing is clarity. LoE366 allows 66% visible light transmittance, reducing exterior reflectance and smoke-colored tints that can darken a home’s interior.  Great glass performance can actually be seen as well as felt. UV light, the leading cause of fading, is blocked by up to 95% with LoE366. This means furniture, flooring, artwork and other home furnishings all will benefit from this glass technology.

Now take all of the benefits of LoE366, the ultimate choice in glass, and combine them with Neat and Preserve to create the best performing glass package in the window industry. Neat creates a smoother glass surface, causing water to disperse evenly, removing dirt more quickly and reducing water spots. It also reacts with the sun’s UV rays causing organic material on the glass to decompose, leaving windows cleaner longer.

Preserve is a clear adhesive film that protects the glass during shipping and construction, saving time and money during cleanup. Since the film is clear, it allows light in during the building process and because it contains no harmful chemicals, it can be disposed of with other waste materials.
