TIGHT SEAL FOR BUILDING ENVELOPE
Window assembly units can weather the storm
Proglaze ETA from Tremco is a pre-engineered transition assembly for windows and walls, designed to absorb thermal movement and wind loading stresses. It is composed of aluminum and silicone materials that are mechanically attached to windows to ensure a tight, secure seal. The Camp Pendleton Replacement Naval Hospital at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, in San Diego, chose Proglaze ETA, as the facility required a window system that was energy efficient, while in compliance with California’s seismic safety standards. It also had to control air and moisture infiltration to protect patients from mold and mildew. Proglaze ETA was named one of BuildingGreen’s Top 10 green products for 2013.
