Composite windows and patio doors
Jeld-Wen’s new Auraline series of contemporary windows and patio doors marks the manufacturer’s first move into composite window and door products. Made from a blend of wood fibers, synthetic polymers and co-extruded color, the end product is twice as rigid as vinyl and requires no painting and limited maintenance, according to the manufacturer.
The Auraline product line includes single-hung windows, two- and three-panel sliding windows and two-panel sliding patio doors, available in a white or black finish with hardware in white, black or satin nickel. Additional options and a chestnut bronze finish will launch later this year.
The windows and doors are Greenguard Gold certified and available in PG35 standard, PG50 and LG-rated options.
The Opiniion review management platform is designed to prompt and generate star ratings and online reviews from customers with a focus on service businesses, medical offices and multifamily property managers as clients, according to a press release.
The automated platform enables users to gather resident feedback by setting up review prompts, multi-question surveys and automated responses on resident-facing sites. This allows the platform and its user to evaluate resident feedback in real time and act quickly to make improvements, according to the software provider.
Opiniion can be integrated with over 1000 property management software providers, including Yardi, ResMan, Entrata, and RealPage.
Architectural screen maker CityScapes is expanding into poolside furniture with CityScapes Cabanas, set to be available for purchase later this year.
The cabanas are made to order at commercial scale in a number of powder coat colors and architectural styles. Specifiers can customize the cabana’s upper panel with a logo or image of their choosing, according to a press release shared with Multifamily Dive.
The structures measure 20 feet wide and include an integrated power pole with electrical outlets.
On-site package service
As a complement to its existing automated package locker system, LuxerOne is introducing an on-site service, Luxer Liaison, that assigns company agents to help managers and residents manage high package volumes.
While most of LuxerOne’s client properties are able to manage the automated package systems using existing staff, some of them, given a combination of rising deliveries and reduced on-site staff, are not able to keep up, according to a company spokesperson. The Luxer Liaison can provide management and upkeep for the LuxerOne lockers — including audits, outbound shipping and returns — as well as help residents with issues, deliver oversized packages directly and interface with package carriers.
The service is available in two tiers, from one to three days a week to five to seven days a week. Pricing is customized to fit the needs of each property, with the Assist service starting at less than $1,000 per month.
