Frank Lowe & Western Window Systems: Redefining Windows Beyond Glass and Frames

Unlocking Innovative Solutions Together

Frank Lowe is not just a supplier; we are an extension of your team. Our ethos is about bringing to life innovative solutions for seemingly unsolvable challenges. A partnership with Western Window Systems is an emblematic example of our mission in action.

A Window of Opportunity with Western Window Systems

Kevin Vilhauer, the experienced Vice President of Engineering at Western Window Systems, was in the midst of a challenge. Casement-style windows were leaking in a large commercial project, and despite repeated efforts with liquid silicone, the problem persisted.

Kevin, with his passion for innovation, didn’t just see a problem – he saw an opportunity. He knew he needed a consistent solution to replace the inconsistent liquid silicone, and this is where Frank Lowe’s expertise came in.

He remarks, “Frank Lowe’s gasket was a game-changer. We were no longer battling inconsistency; we had a reliable solution.”

Revolutionizing Production – One Gasket at a Time

Liquid silicone, though traditional, was messy, labor-intensive, and unreliable. The process was reminiscent of a laborious dance – application, attachment, excess cleaning, and then a final cleaning. The dance drained time, energy, and resources.

But with Frank Lowe’s custom-produced gasket, this dance transformed into a streamlined rhythm. No more mess, no more hours spent on cleaning, and most importantly, no more inconsistency.

Kevin points out, “From an intricate art with silicone, sealing frames with the foam gasket became an efficient science.”

Sealed Frames, Sealed Trust

Western Window Systems prides itself on delivering quality. With the new gasket, they not only achieved higher production efficiency but also amplified customer trust. When customers invest in Western Window Systems, they are not just buying windows; they are buying assurance – assurance of quality, durability, and reliability.

The Domino Effect of Success

With the groundbreaking success of the foam gaskets in sealing windows, Kevin was eager to replicate the success across other products. Why stop at windows when doors and other products could benefit too?

He amusingly notes, “Our initial hesitation with foam gaskets was rooted in unfamiliarity. But once we saw the results, the shift in mindset was instantaneous. From wondering if it would work to why isn’t it used everywhere!”

Frank Lowe, ever ready, supported this expansion, ensuring that Western Window Systems had the perfect gaskets for all their products.

Forward Together

As Kevin reflects on the journey, he acknowledges that success in today’s competitive landscape is not just about the product. It’s about the supply chain, consistency, and partners like Frank Lowe who are there every step of the way.

The story of Frank Lowe and Western Window Systems is not just about sealing windows; it’s about sealing partnerships, trust, and a shared vision of excellence. And as we move forward, we are excited about crafting more success stories together.
