Shodor Foundation – Durham, NC

Acoustic Series

A historic building renovation that went from warehouse to commercial office space, the owners wanted to keep the original jalousie windows, however, the primary windows were single paned glass with aluminum frames – very inefficient. The architect specified Climate Seal Acoustic Series Window Inserts to maintain the historical integrity while maximizing the sound and thermal performance. The project included 16 windows – 256 square feet of product and resulted in an 80% sound reduction. We are waiting to hear about their annual energy bill savings.

Vertical Window Stop

The left vertical stop is now complete. Labels were used to identify each opening’s unique window insert dimensions.
Bypassing Bulky Jalousie Crank

In addition to creating a large air space for enhanced sound abatement, the “jalousie” windows used a bulky crank mechanism that needed to be bypassed.

The sub-frame has been fully installed and the Climate Seal Insert has been magnetically attached. The opening looks more complete, yet the product is barely noticeable.
