YKK AP America Releases YES SSG TUH Vent Window
Company’s latest innovation offers ventilation and impact resistance for seamless integration
AUSTELL, Ga. (June 26, 2014) – YKK AP America Inc. (YKK AP), an industry leader in storefront, window wall and curtain wall systems, unveils its latest product offering – the YES SSG TUH Impact Resistant Vent Window. The vent is ideal for architects who want to maintain architectural integrity of a building or take advantage of the value derived from façade construction. The YES SGG TUH seamlessly blends with the surrounding framing system to become virtually invisible when viewed from a distance.
“There is often a concern that integrating ventilation into a wall system will affect the aesthetic and value of a building,” said Gary Flemming, window business manager for YKK AP. “The YES SSG TUH Vent Window is YKK AP’s solution for those concerns. The flexible design allows for the vent window to blend seamlessly with the surrounding framing system, providing ventilation with the appearance of a fixed lite. Not to mention it’s impact resistant.”
The YES SSG TUH Vent Window delivers a standard product offering with sizes up to 36” by 60”. The thermally broken, impact resistant vent window is compatible with YKK AP’s most popular framing systems. The vent windows successfully passed both impact and cycle requirements of ASTM E 1886 and ASTM E 1996 and the test requirements for the Florida High Velocity Hurricane Zone (TAS 201, TAS 202, and TAS 203).
“YKK AP rigorously tests each vent window to ensure optimal impact performance,” said Greg Galloway, ProTek brand manager for YKK AP. “Because the YES SSG TUH vent windows are architectural rated, each window is tested for thermal and acoustical performance and air and water infiltration as well. The process confirms YKK AP is supplying the industry leading thermal and condensation resistance performance in an SSG Vent product.”
The YES SSG TUH Vent Window boasts an outstanding thermal performance, meeting the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code through Zone 6. Each vent window is glazed with 1” insulating units. The system also provides AW PG 65 architectural performance.
The vent windows are available in a broad range of architectural finishes. For more information, please visit www.ykkap.imre.com. The YES SSG TUH Impact Resistant Vent Window is on display at the 2014 AIA National Convention in Chicago, Ill., June 26-28 in booth #2212.
