Wausau expands SuperWall Series
Four-side silicone-glazed system creates dramatic entrances, openings, façades
Wausau, Wis. (May 2013) -- 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-˚F
with triple insulating glass and 0.31 BTU/hr-sqft-˚F 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.
