University Business counts Wausau's INvent Retro windows for "Top 100 Products"

University Business selected Wausau Window and Wall Systems’ INvent Retro™ XLT Series windows as one of the 2012 Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products awards.

Meeting the needs of universities and schools, Wausau’s INvent Retro windows replicate the look of classic steel and wood windows, while offering modern, high performance.

Matching academic aesthetics, INvent Retro windows feature a narrow, exterior face in beveled, ogee, cove and square profiles. Helping meet Model Energy Codes, the XLT windows with double insulating glass can achieve a U-Factor as low as 0.39 BTU/hr.sqft.ºF and a Condensation Resistance Factor (CRF) as high as CRF Frame 60/CRF Glass 70. Triple insulating glass further enhances energy savings and condensation resistance.

“We are pleased to announce the first-ever University Business Top Products list and plan to make it a yearly feature,” says Tim Goral, editor-in-chief. “The nominations came from a variety of university administrators who have shared their experiences with these products and how they have improved the way their school operates. We hope their insight becomes a valuable resource to our readers and helps them solve their biggest challenges on campus.”

“High-performing, historic-looking window systems are essential to meeting today’s educational and commercial building needs. INvent Retro helps accomplish both design and performance criteria,” says Steve Gille, Wausau’s education market manager. “The majority of our built environment already has been constructed, is aging and is in need, or will soon be in need of renovation. In addition, many newly-constructed buildings are seeking to match an existing aesthetic within their neighborhood and on their campuses.”

As part of the Advantage by Wausau® standard product offering, these high-performance windows are pre-engineered and factory-glazed. Available on an accelerated delivery schedule, these competitively priced windows are backed with an industry-leading warranty of up to 10 years.
