Making a property weathertight is a critical milestone during construction. It signifies the building is now sealed against wind and rain and the next financial payment will soon be released from the owner.
Once joinery is installed the last thing you need is for it to be damaged. That’s where Altus Windows Sill Protectors come in. They’re designed to safeguard against any delay caused by damage during the remaining building process.
Altus Window Systems Sill Protectors are now available nationwide for the Altus Pacific Residential system and Altus Weathertight system.

Traditional ways, like hope and tape, of protecting your door sills during construction are no longer the most effective solution. Here we demonstrate how the Altus Window Systems Sill Protectors fit perfectly onto the joinery and enable the doors to move freely. This means they can remain in place for the duration of the build process - protecting your joinery right up until the keys are handed over.

Altus Window Systems Sill Protectors are compatible with the Altus Pacific Residential 35mm system and Altus Weathertight 35mm system - available from our trusted network of window & door Fabricators: Fisher®, Nebulite®, Nulook®, Rylock® & Vistalite®.

Why can’t I get Sill Protectors for other Altus joinery Systems now?
The Altus Window Systems Weathertight & Pacific Residential systems underwent in-market, localized testing so we could make adjustments in a controlled environment. This allowed us to ensure the performance of the product ahead of developing it for additional systems systems. At this stage we will likely hold off launching into additional systems until we have been in market with the current platforms for 12-24 months.
