Wausau Window and Wall Systems Inc. has expanded its SuperWall Series to include a four-side silicone-glazed system to create dramatic facades and entrances.

Wausau’s SuperWall SSG is a curtainwall and window wall system available in four depths: 6 3/4, 7 3/4, 8 3/4 and 10 3/4 inches. SuperWall SSG accepts standard, structural silicone, insulating glass units.

The SuperWall SSG's aluminum framing may be finished in a range of VOC-free anodize colors or in powder or liquid coatings.

Narrow 2 1/2-inch mullions are matched by inside and outside 90-degree corner profiles to maximize the opening for daylight and views, according to the window and curtainwall manufacturer.

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 says.

SuperWall SSG is recommended for open atriums, transparent low-rise structures and sleek, modern façades, the company says.

Features, Assembly

Wausau’s curtainwall and window wall systems’ extruded aluminum frames contain a high percentage of recycled content and are glazed in a factory-controlled environment.

SuperWall SSG is recommended for open atriums, transparent low-rise structures, and sleek, modern façades, the company says.

SuperWall SSG’s grid frames are factory-fabricated and shipped knocked-down for field assembly. The company says F and T perimeter anchors make the grid frames easy to install.

After attachment of pre-glazed carrier frames using concealed extruded aluminum clips, glazing contractors face-seal the system in the field, Wausau says.

Frame Finishes

The system’s aluminum framing may be finished in a range of VOC-free anodize colors, including copper anodize, or in powder or liquid coatings. The company says the system is available in more than 30,000 color options.

Customers can further specify finished-to-match exterior accent trim, insert vents, sun shades and interior light shelves, the company says.
