Tubelite has introduced Phantom 5000 zero sightline awning and casement windows, allowing occupants to enjoy the benefits of natural ventilation and light. Engineered for mid-rise commercial and multi-family projects, condominiums, hotels, offices and schools, the windows integrate and install into the Tubelite curtainwall, window wall and storefront systems.
With a 4-1/4-inch system depth, the concealed aluminum frame design of the Phantom window is virtually invisible from the exterior of a building, providing a consistent appearance of fixed lites. Hinging options allow opening from the bottom or side of the window. Screens are available with frames to match the window.
Phantom 5000 zero sightline windows are American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) AW-rated, indicating that they meet industry testing for air, water and structural performance. These windows also were tested per the AAMA 1503-09 standard, achieving a frame CRFf of 79 for awning units and 78 for casements. They have also been tested and modeled per the National Fenestration Council (NFRC) procedure, achieving a U-Factor of 0.32 for thermal transmittance.
