GLASSvent™ UT Windows

Every so often it's what you can't see that makes the biggest impact. New GLASSvent™ UT (Ultra Thermal) Windows have a visually concealed vent designed for seamless integration with the framing system to create a complete, advanced, superior thermal solution for commercial construction. With best-in-class thermal performance, GLASSvent™ UT Windows are the ideal solution for architects and designers who want to provide fresh-air ventilation without decreasing the overall thermal rating of the façade. Never before has something so seamless offered such high thermal performance.

The new GLASSvent™ UT Windows are the ideal solution for architects and designers who want to provide fresh-air ventilation without sacrificing thermal performance in curtain wall or storefront applications.

GLASSvent™ UT Windows are engineered to meet or exceed the minimum requirements for the architectural window performance class, including life-cycle testing – the highest level attainable.

 

GLASSvent™ UT Windows have been rigorously tested to both AAMA and CSA standards for air, water, structural, thermal and condensation performance.

BRAINS AND BEAUTY
Engineered for seamless integration with the 1600UT System™1 Curtain Wall, GLASSvent™ UT Windows can also be inserted into other Kawneer captured curtain walls and front set framing systems.
The innovative, patent-pending design of GLASSvent™ UT Windows provides a sleek ventilation alternative for Kawneer curtain walls and storefront framing systems. Vents are available as project-out or outswing casement windows without the exterior aluminum profile sightlines experienced with typical operating vents. More than a streamlined appearance, GLASSvent™ UT Windows also deliver a convenient means for architects to ventilate with fresh air, which has been shown to improve indoor air quality, as well as improve occupant comfort, well-being and productivity.

FLEXIBILITY
The new GLASSvent™ UT Windows are the ideal solution to provide fresh-air ventilation without sacrificing thermal performance in curtain wall or storefront applications.

GLASSvent™ UT Windows are available with the option to buy the window factory glazed by Kawneer or open for glazing by the window installer.

 

The flexibility of GLASSvent™ UT Windows gives architects an ultra thermal option that combines high-performance vents with high-performance curtain walls and storefront systems, including the 1600UT System™1 Curtain Wall.
