 Pacific Yurts Introduces New Energy-Efficient ‘Form-Fitting’ Window System

Cottage grove, Ore. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Over its 33-year history of building the highest-quality modern yurts, Pacific Yurts’ long list of innovations coupled with outstanding customer service has kept them at the top of the industry they created. From reflective insulation and French doors to heavy-duty snow and wind upgrades, the Cottage Grove, Oregon company was the first to introduce most of the features that have made yurts tremendously popular in a variety of settings and applications.

“One of the many benefits of a modern yurt is its flexibility. It can be used in a wide variety of locations, and sometimes that means customers will be placing them on a mountain slope or atop a tall platform”
.Now Pacific Yurts is pleased to introduce one of its most exciting innovations to date: the unique Custom Curve™ window system. Custom Curve™ is the first glass window system with a structurally engineered framework that follows the curved wall of the yurt. It thereby avoids the “flat panel” appearance of other systems and creates the most aesthetically appealing window available in a yurt today.

This latest innovation comes in response to customer requests for a new, energy-efficient window system that could be opened from the inside, says Pacific Yurts founder and CEO Alan Bair. “One of the many benefits of a modern yurt is its flexibility. It can be used in a wide variety of locations, and sometimes that means customers will be placing them on a mountain slope or atop a tall platform,” Bair says. “Since the standard yurt window opens from the outside, we wanted to give these customers an easy option for opening any hard to reach windows without the need for a wrap-around deck.”

Pacific Yurts solved that problem through a mixture of ingenuity and technology. The Custom Curve™ design utilizes a Low-E thermal glass window for maximum energy efficiency, and integrates a fabric flange into the window system to assure a weather-tight seal. By engineering the window into the yurt design, and supporting it with a beautiful top-quality Douglas fir framework, Pacific Yurts has been able to eliminate the latticework that crisscrosses through the standard yurt window, thereby enhancing the view.

Pacific Yurts’ new window system can be installed virtually anywhere along the wall of their three largest yurt sizes. It can be ordered with a new yurt or retrofitted to an existing yurt, and easily lends itself to customization with shelving, wood panels or window treatments for a personalized look.

As the company that pioneered the design and development of the first modern yurt, Pacific Yurts has been responsible for the most important advances in the industry. The Custom Curve™ window system ranks with the best of them, Bair says. Visit our website at http://www.yurts.com for more information.
