New Brunswick Theological Seminary, New Brunswick, NJ.
We completed a project at the New Brunswick Theological Seminary Library. Three damaged wood frames and sashes were removed and replaced with new aluminum frames. The new frames are a thermally broken, heavy triple glazed church window with a painted dark brown finish. The frames are hurricane/impact approved, and the thermal break is achieved by using two different aluminum extrusions, which are joined with 6/6 polymide nylon strips. The frames provide the maximum condensation resistance and superior insulation making it the ideal for the library, where heating, condensation, and noise are factors.
New one inch thick insulated glass units were provided and installed on the exterior of the frames. The insulated units consist of tempered glass with a Low E coating which will help to preserve the books in the library. On the interior, the original coat of arms stained glass window was re-sized and installed into the top of the center window. New amber textured glass was cut to size and installed at the perimeter of each window, while clear textured glass was used for the larger central portions of the windows.
