Moduline Offers Facade VentModuline Window Systems, part of the Vistawall Group, offers the Facade Vent™ to create a streamlined facade by hiding an operable window behind a single exterior frame. The facade is created through the use of narrow equal fixed and operable sightlines, uniform in all directions. The use of structural silicone glazing enables the use of less, narrow aluminum extrusion profiles, and the perimeter framing takes fixed glazing and operable vents without inserts or overlaps, according to the company.
Features of the product include a sash-applied bulb gasket/glass edge protector with molded corners, wet glazing with silicone cap, inside bead glazing on the fixed units, integral stacking mullion and a monumental thermal barrier.

A new commercial protection screen has been designed to provide a greater level of protection from projectiles and vandalism than an unsightly security screen. TRACO of Cranberry Township, PA, has introduced its new TR-20 protection screen frame, which is made from tubular aluminum to resist impact. The screen frame adapts to all hung and slider products and comes standard with a continuous extruded top hinge. The corners are fabricated and fastened with stainless steel tamper resistant screws, according to the company.
