Curtainwall system

Wausau Window and Wall Systems

The 6250i-HRX curtainwall system is designed specifically for the floor-to-floor spans and loads of high-rise construction, such as residence halls, administrative office towers and signature “gateway” university buildings. In addition to the system's vertical applications, an optional composite system accommodates longer spans such as mechanical floors and large floor plans. The curtainwall provides enhanced condensation performance and low U-Factor, along with panoramic, floor-to-ceiling views.

Multi-way occupancy sensors


Four new multi-way wall switch occupancy sensors offer code-compliant lighting control in spaces with more than one entrance or switch location. The sensors install easily using traditional three- and four-way wiring. The product offering includes dual-relay multi-way occupancy sensors, which are available in passive infrared (PIR) and dual-technology models. The sensors provide out-of-the box automatic-on operation, and turn lighting on whenever any one of the connected sensors detects occupancy. Dual-relay sensors are factory configured to turn only the first load on automatically.

Touchless skin-care system

Kimberly-Clark Professional

A new touchless skin-care system, the Electronic Cassette Skin Care System, is available with a line of Kleenex brand luxury foam skin cleansers, including a fragrance- and dye-free Green Seal-certified formulation, antibacterial, E-2 rated and instant hand sanitizers. The system is reliable, easy to use and install and hygienic. It helps reduce cross contamination and the spread of germs via touchless dispensing and a sealed soap system that prevents contamination of the soap itself by bacteria. It also reduces waste through controlled dispensing. Used cassettes are recycled easily after the pump is removed.
