Wausau expands SuperWall Series - Four-side silicone-glazed system creates dramatic entrances, openings, facades

Wausau Window and Wall Systems’ standard SuperWall™ Series now includes SuperWall SSG for four-side silicone-glazed curtainwall and window wall systems.

SuperWall SSG is well suited to create dramatic entrances, open atriums, transparent low-rise structures and sleek, modern façades.   

Wausau’s SuperWall SSG is available in four depths: 6-3/4, 7-3/4, 8-3/4 and 10-3/4 inches and accepts standard, structural silicone, insulating glass units. Narrow 2-1/2-inch mullions are matched by inside and outside 90-degree corner profiles, to maximize the opening for daylight and views.

“For more than 30 years, designers and contractors have trusted Wausau’s SuperWall systems for smooth, quick installation and worry-free, test-verified performance,” says Wausau’s Steve Gille, education market manager. “To meet Model Energy Codes, low U-Factors allow broad expanses of vision glass.”

SuperWall achieves NFRC U-factors as low as 0.18 BTU/hr-sqft-ºF with triple insulating glass and 0.31 BTU/hr-sqft-ºF with double insulating glass. Frame Condensation Resistance Factors (CRFs) start at 71. Enhancing energy efficiency and environmental goals, SuperWall SSG framing can accommodate zero sightline insert vents for natural ventilation, ClearStory™ exterior sun shades and interior light shelves for daylight optimization, and façade-integrated photovoltaic modules for renewable energy generation.

Wausau’s curtainwall and window wall systems’ extruded aluminum frames contain recycled content averaging 70% or greater. SuperWall SSG’s aluminum carrier frames are glazed in a factory-controlled environment at Wausau’s LEED® Silver-certified manufacturing center. Grid frames are factory-fabricated and shipped knocked-down for field assembly. F and T perimeter anchors make grid frames fast and easy to install. After attachment of pre-glazed carrier frames using concealed extruded aluminum clips, glazing contractors face-seal the system in the field.

SuperWall SSG’s aluminum framing may be finished in a range of VOC-free anodize colors, including copper anodize, or in powder coat or liquid paint, including a palette exceeding 30,000 color choices, all applied with VOC-free processes. Customers can specify finished-to-match exterior accent trim, insert vents, sun shades and interior light shelves.
