Wasco uses hurricane-resistant insulating glass made of heat strengthened low-E lites permanently bonded with one or more interlayers of durable SG (Sentry Glass). In exhaustive impact tests, broken glass fragments have adhered to the bonded plastic vinyl interlayer, reducing the risk of injury, shattered glass and breaching the building envelope.

  • Mill (Standard)
  • 2605 FEVE Powder Coat, 2605 PVDF, 2604 Powder Coat, and Anodized (more information)
