Deceuninck’s Revolution XL Achieves NASF AW100 Rating
Deceuninck North America's Revolution XL Picture Window achieved the North American Fenestration Standard / Specification's AW100 rating, the most stringent requirements established for the AW Performance Class commonly used in high-rise and mid-rise buildings. It meets the increased loading requirements and limits on deflection in buildings and where the frequent use of fenestration products is expected.
The window passed all the required performance and durability tests for the architectural window class, including structural performance under wind loading and resistance to water penetration and air leakage. An independent certified lab conducts all tests.
"As fenestration standards evolve, we are focused on meeting the rigorous performance demands for today's modern buildings," says Gregory Koch, vice president of sales and marketing for Deceuninck North America. "The Revolution XL line delivers it all: AW rating, STC performance, and Passive House Certified windows, and lift and slide door by Westeck, making it ideal for commercial applications where optimum performance is paramount."
Revolution XL also scored for acoustic excellence in Sound Transmission Class testing. With only dual pane glass, the Picture Window achieved an STC rating of 43, and the Tilt & Turn window achieved an STC of 41.
These ratings add to the line's thermal capability, also demonstrated in its Passive House Certified window.
The Fenestration Glazing and Industry Alliance’s AAMA performance standards for fenestration products serve as a resource for architects, specifiers, contractors, and manufacturers seeking to pinpoint optimum, material-neutral performance levels to meet the needs of specific projects and localities.
