WINCO Window Company has introduced its most thermally advanced window series, the 8325 series. The new product line helps architects easily meet the country’s strictest energy codes and LEED® requirements by featuring some of the highest performing U-values in the marketplace.
All framing members of the WINCO windows are thermally broken with two glass reinforced polyamide struts that stitch the two aluminum extrusions together. Thermal strut involves two separate extrusions and joins them through the use of engineered structural polyamide. Both the inside and outside aluminum profiles are extruded independently with a cavity that will ultimately receive the strut. Each profile can be coated or anodized independently, allowing for design flexibility and potential cost savings.
WINCO is offering the 8325 series in two different perimeter frame profiles. The standard 8325 series includes a unique sloped exterior glazing leg, which gives the window an elegant, historic putty-glazed appearance while also allowing the system to easily integrate an exterior applied grid system. The 8325F includes a more contemporary flat exterior glazing leg, which lends itself better towards a more modern design application.
