We have expanded our OptiQ™ Ultra Thermal Window offering with the introduction of the new AA®5450 Series Window. Now available in single and double hung configurations, OptiQ Ultra Thermal Windows deliver best-in-class thermal performance and offer more aesthetic choices. The result of a continuing partnership between Kawneer’s Traco division and the U.S. Department of Energy, the AA5450 series window leverages the groundbreaking design features and customization options found in the successful projecting and casement OptiQ Ultra Thermal Windows. This thermal intelligence allows the AA5450 series window to maintain thermal continuity, reduce thermal transmission and help retain interior comfort.

Thermal Intelligence Just Got Brighter

In addition to superior thermal performance, the AA5450 series single and double hung window meets or exceeds the minimum requirements for architectural window performance class, including life-cycle testing. The AA5450 series window provides the ability to add or remove thermal options based on performance and cost requirements.

Since the windows are made from aluminum, they will never rot, warp or buckle due to moisture and weather exposure, and they attain outstanding condensation resistance, which is ideal for healthcare and education applications where condensation and mold are significant concerns. Superior thermal efficiency also makes the window ideal for buildings seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®*) certification with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC®).

Intelligence + Good Looks and Flexibility

The AA5450 series window features a 4-5/8" frame depth, and its minimal sightlines offer superior aesthetics. A dual color option offers the flexibility to vary interior and exterior finishes, enabling designers to coordinate and accent multiple environments. And, with the addition of the AA5450 series window, OptiQ Ultra Thermal Windows are available with expanded configuration options, including single hung, double hung, projecting, casement and matching fixed frames. 

Our newly expanded OptiQ Ultra Thermal Window series was featured during the 2013 AIA National Convention in Denver, June 20–22 in our joint Kawneer and Traco exhibit.
