Part of the Advantage by Wausau offering, these standard interior accessory windows (IAWs) are ideally suited to meet the accelerated pace of construction timelines for low- and mid-rise buildings including offices, schools and medical facilities. Competitively priced, they are backed with an industry-leading warranty of up to 10 years.
Leaving the exterior window or curtainwall framing systems intact, Wausau’s S.E.A.L. Series IAWs can contribute to improved energy efficiency and other demanding performance needs. For facilities in high traffic areas near highways, railways or airports, S.E.A.L. windows also are an excellent choice for reducing sound transmittance. These benefits, along with daylight and outside views, are recognized by the LEED Green Building Rating Systems.
Wausau’s hinged or lift-out S.E.A.L. Series windows are available with narrow frame depths, to fit within existing window wells, and usually are provided with custodial locks for access to between-glass spaces. They also provide a convenient opportunity to incorporate between-glass blinds. For exterior window systems, blinds allow occupants to control natural light and glare. For interior window systems, blinds offer privacy for sensitive environments.
When used as interior windows, Wausau’s dual-glazed 2500 Series S.E.A.L. observation windows are recommended for intensive care units. In psychiatric applications, 2187-DT Series units accept security glazing and are “drop tested” for interior human impacts up to 2,000 foot-pounds.
The durable, aluminum frames contain recycled content averaging 70 percent or greater, enhancing the S.E.A.L. windows’ environmental attributes. The aluminum can be finished in nearly any color. With a palette exceeding 30,000 color choices, painted finishes may be requested as liquid or powder coatings with ultra-low volatile organic compounds (VOC) and VOC-free content. Durable, VOC-free anodize finishes also may be selected.
