TubeliteInc_UniVent1375AWseries.jpgWalker, Michigan (Nov. 2022) – Tubelite announces its new UniVent 1375AW Series Therml=Block™ Windows, including project-out awnings and casements, and project-in hoppers and casements. These operable windows are engineered to complement and seamlessly integrate within mid- to high-rise commercial buildings' storefront and curtainwall systems.

Tubelite's UniVent 1375AW Series Windows offer natural ventilation and increased fresh air exchange. As part of a sustainable, passive house design strategy, operable vents can lower HVAC loads, reducing associated utility costs. These aluminum-framed windows are thermally broken and insulated with polyamide strut, further contributing to high-performance, energy-efficient building envelopes.
