Wausau presents Custom Window by Wausau historically accurate windows and terrace door inserts

Wausau Window and Wall Systems(R) showcases its product line of historically accurate windows during the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Expo and Convention 2104.

The Custom Window(TM) by Wausau product family includes historic windows, swinging terrace door inserts and accessories to achieve modern performance, while preserving the look of landmark buildings. For more than 30 years, universities, courthouses, museums, libraries, hotels, schools, high-rise residences and other commercial buildings have relied on these products to meet both renovation and new construction applications.Custom Window by Wausau products may be selected as fixed and project-in or project-out casements; self-balancing double-hung windows; fixed and projected, simulated double-hung windows; hopper vents and historic glazing inserts for swinging terrace doors. Available on an accelerated delivery schedule, these competitively priced windows and doors are backed with an industry-leading warranty of up to 10 years.

“Historically accurate preservation demands more than just a nod to the architectural vernacular,” emphasizes Dave Stevens, Custom Window by Wausau’s product manager. “Respectful restoration calls for replication of character-defining features. Narrow, accurate sightlines; true divided lites; and strict attention to detail set apart the fenestration of landmark structures -- then, and now.”

Custom Window by Wausau products can replicate nearly any historic sightline in a true divided lite (TDL) window. Stevens adds, “Glassmaking technology in the years prior to World War II limited the size of individual glass lites, mitigating the use of putty-glazed muntin grids. Only TDL design can reproduce this aesthetic with the fidelity required for rigorous historical preservation.”

Wausau’s project teams work with architects, building teams and presiding historic districts to assist in obtaining necessary aesthetic and performance approvals, associated tax credits and long-term objectives. Extra-wide thermal barriers also can contribute to building’s energy saving goals and condensation resistance.

Stevens notes, “Replication is about the entire opening, not just the window. The product must be easy to install and anchor correctly. Appropriate sills and trim must be provided to complete the window and blend it seamlessly with the opening and the building itself. If a window doesn’t do all these things, it’s simply not good enough.”

Custom profiles can be designed for panning, perimeter framing or muntins, including panning systems with “T” mullions to echo existing profiles. These aluminum components may be specified with up to 70 percent recycled content and finished with liquid paint, powder coatings or anodize. Dual-color finishing can be accommodated to match different interior and exterior color schemes. With a palette exceeding 30,000 color choices, painted finishes may be requested with ultra-low volatile organic compounds (VOC) and VOC-free content. Durable, VOC-free anodize finishes also may be selected, such as a patina-free copper.
