These high-performance, fixed and operable windows address weather-ability, durability and thermal performance, while contributing to sustainability goals.
As part of the Advantage by Wausau standard product offering, INvent Series windows are competitively priced, available on an accelerated delivery schedule, and backed with an industry-leading warranty of up to 10 years. INvent Series' durable products are tested to meet AAMA AW-100 Architectural Performance Class ratings, including life cycle testing.
For maximum thermal performance and condensation resistance, Wausau's INvent Series 2250i-XLT fixed windows use triple insulating glass and an extra-wide thermal barrier to achieve NFRC U-Factors as low as 0.19, equivalent to R5.3. Condensation Resistance Factors range from 44 to 68. The windows' acoustic performance is tested for Sound Transmission Class ratings of 31 to 43 and Outdoor-Indoor Transmission Class of 26 to 31.
In addition to fixed window units, the new INvent Series provides a choice of project-in hopper, project-out awning or casement units. Operable units present a seasonal opportunity for natural ventilation. These features may aid buildings seeking certification under such programs as the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® Green Rating System™.
Contributing to a project's green goals, Wausau's INvent Series windows may be specified in 2.5-, 3.5- and 4.5-inch frame depths with recycled content and polyamide thermal barriers. Their quality-controlled, factory fabrication ensures the intended performance and accommodates dual-color finishes. With a palette exceeding 30,000 color choices, 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.
