Unicel Architectural adds new features to award-winning louvered glazing solution

 

Unicel Architectural today announced the availability of its newest Vision Control® features to help ensure optimal usability, safety, installation and thermal efficiencies. Vision Control® is a patented, hermetically-sealed unit combining louvers within glass that can be customized to virtually any shape for interior or exterior glazing applications. Its advanced louvered glazing technology eliminates strings, ensures alignment and requires no maintenance.

The newest Vision Control® product enhancements include:

  1. Faster gear operation – The opening and closing of louvers is vastly facilitated with new crank handle and knob hardware that doubles the speed of operation.
  2. Fire-rated trims – Specialized steel trims for doors provide 20-minute fire protection with the use of Firelite Plus® glazing by Technical Glass Products.
  3. Curtain wall adapter – A laboratory-tested aluminum adapter profile for exterior applications seamlessly transitions required thicknesses of Vision Control® into standard 1’’ curtain wall glass pockets without the need for modification.
  4. Argon in airspace – Vision Control® units with argon- filled airspaces now maximize thermal performance by reducing conductive and convective heat transfers when louvers are in open position.

“Our patented Vision Control® solution has been an industry leader since day one,” said Jean-François Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural. “As market demand evolves, we continuously invest in R&D to update and enhance our solution to maintain our leadership position. Vision Control® is now even easier to operate, boasts an industry first for fire-rated trims, can be readily adapted to any setting for curtain wall applications, and offers additional options for blocking solar heat gain!”

For discerning architectural glazing requirements across healthcare, educational, and institutional building sectors, Vision Control® lends itself perfectly to almost any exterior glazing applications that demand thermal comfort, control and performance. When installed in exterior applications, Vision Control® significantly reduces energy consumption in support of LEED® certification requirements.
