Wausau adds blast-mitigating, energy-efficient, operable windows to INvent Series’ standard product offering

Date: 24 August 2010

Ideally suited to meet government buildings’ high-security and green goals, Wausau Window and Wall Systems combines blast mitigation, energy performance and recycled content in the Blast Hazard Mitigation (BHM) windows – the newest to join its INvent™ Series.

INvent Series’ fixed, project-out awning and project-out casement units are part of the Advantage by Wausau standard products offering competitive pricing, accelerated delivery, and an industry-leading warranty of up to 10 years.

The BHM INvent Series units are pre-engineered, factory-glazed and tested to ensure reliable performance under demanding conditions. The BHM INvent Series windows comply with GSA ISC Security Design Criteria and Department of Defense UFC 4-010-01 requirements of 6 psi peak pressure and 42 psi-msec impulse, for conventional stand-off distance and low level of protection, Charge Weight I or II. Along with high-security demands, these windows have an AAMA AW-100 Architectural Performance Class rating, indicating that they meet stringent industry testing standards for air infiltration, water resistance and structural integrity.

Wausau’s BHM INvent Series windows also provide condensation resistance and thermal performance, contributing to sustainability goals. All of Wausau’s products include recycled aluminum content, which is a key attribute for buildings seeking certification under such programs as U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Green Rating System. Natural light and ventilation also are benefits recognized by LEED, which may be accomplished with Wausau’s operable INvent Series units.

Wausau’s BHM INvent Series windows are available with either a 2.5-inch, 3.5-inch or 4.5-inch frame depth and accept a variety of security glazing types, may be specified with a thermal barrier, and can be finished in a choice of more than 30,000 colors. Wausau’s painted finishes include liquid paints that can be composed of up to 100% post-industrial waste. Durable, VOC-free anodize finishes accentuate the metallic appearance, such as copper color that does not patina.

Product descriptions, video clips of blast performance testing, downloadable product details, drawings and technical information can be found in the blast hazard mitigation section of Wausau’s website. For more information, please call 877-678-2983 or e-mail government@wausauwindow.com.
