Customizable System Provides Comprehensive Coverage for Any Outdoor Setting

Take your next commercial design project to new heights with the latest innovation from Trex Commercial Products, a national leader in engineering and manufacturing ornamental railing systems for commercial building applications. 

The Minneapolis-based company has introduced Ascent, a post-supported glass windscreen designed for commercial exterior use. Ideal around pools, outdoor dining areas and balconies, this new product delivers unobstructed views while also diverting wind to create a more enjoyable environment and outdoor experience.

“As architects and designers increasingly incorporate outdoor spaces into their design plans, it is vital to consider the impact that Mother Nature can have on a space’s functionality and potential for enjoyment,” said John Lewis, president and CEO of Trex Commercial Products. “Ascent provides protection from distracting winds, without sacrificing the very thing that draws patrons outside in the first place – the view.”

 

Reaching New Heights

While most commercial windscreen systems are capable of handling 10psf wind loads, Ascent is designed for eight times that amount, with a qualified wind load of 80psf. This increased wind load allows for installation at much higher altitudes, such as balconies and rooftops. At a standard height of 6 ft., Ascent provides extensive coverage for furniture and patrons; however, the product’s height is completely customizable based on individual project needs.

 

Installation That’s a Breeze

Unlike traditional glass windscreens that require installers to lift large panes of glass and slide them in from the top of the post system, Ascent uses an easy-to-install aluminum snap-fit system with concealed fasteners. With one side of the post in place, the glass is positioned in front of the system and held in by double-sided foam tape.

The tape holds the first pane of glass in while the next piece of glass is installed. The cover is then snapped in from the front, safely securing the half-inch glass panel in place. To prevent corrosion, the posts are secured with an embedment or welded base plate, avoiding any contact with concrete.

“Ascent introduces Trex Commercial Products into the windscreen market, and we’re excited about its growth prospects and potential usage – particularly in hospitality and healthcare settings,” noted Lewis. “With its impressive wind loads and customizable sizing, the sky is truly the limit!”

Ascent is available in four finishes – Powder Coated, Painted, Kynar® and Anodized – for a custom look to complement any setting.
