Linetec’s Copper Anodize finish featured in Building Enclosure

TForge_2300-webBuilding Enclosure recently featured Linetec’s finishing services in an article about New York’s The Forge, a 272-unit luxury residential tower in Long Island pursuing LEED Silver certification. Designed by FXCollaborative, its distinctive, artistically inspired, industrial-influenced exterior façade showcases Linetec’s copper color anodize on 92,000 square-feet of Dri-Design’s aluminum wall panel system.

While The Forge is a single 38-story, 266,000-square-foot structure, the property appears as if it could be three separate wafer-like buildings set side by side with a fourth, far shorter, one nestled at the foot of the other three. On the building’s south side, the copper-colored aluminum wall system clads the entire height of the building, accentuating its vertical presence.

Linetec’s proprietary and warrantied copper anodize finish is accomplished through a three-step electrolytic coloring method, rather than the standard two-step process. The resulting finish remains a bright copper color, with no patina over time. It does not require a clear coat or ongoing treatment to maintain color stability. It is available for extrusion, stretch-formed and flat sheet aluminum, before or after assembly.

Supporting The Forge’s healthy, sustainable goals and LEED criteria, Linetec’s anodized services produce no harmful or dangerous by-products and is non-hazardous. Anodized aluminum is an inert, non-combustible material that is 100 percent recyclable and poses no health risks. Anodize aluminum resists the ravages of time, temperature, corrosion, humidity and warping. Protecting and maintaining the structural integrity of the aluminum, it retains exceptional hardness and lasting durability.

Biophilic design of Philadelphia’s Asplundh Cancer Pavilion features Linetec’s wood grain finish

Sidney-Kimmel-Cancer-Ctr-Abington-Jefferson-Health-(9-web)Wausau, Wisconsin (Nov. 2018) – The recently opened Asplundh Cancer Pavilion’s 86,000-square-foot outpatient center in the suburbs of Philadelphia combines state-of-the-art cancer-fighting science with a serene healing environment. Its biophilic design by EwingCole includes an exterior architectural aluminum system finished by Linetec to resemble the look and texture of natural wood.

“Our design team did an incredible job bringing the outdoors into the Pavilion with abundant natural light, birch and moss design elements, and views of the surrounding greenery,” said Peg O’Grady, Asplundh Cancer Pavilion’s administrative director, oncology at Abington-Jefferson Health. “Research shows that the environment has an effect on the burden of disease and healing times, so we were sure to make each choice thoughtfully.”

Sidney-Kimmel-Cancer-Ctr-Abington-Jefferson-Health-(8-web)The design team interviewed patients and their family members and engaged the Patient and Family Advisory Council as a sounding board. Local stone, indigenous plants and local contractors were used. Demonstrating its environmentally responsible design and construction, the project’s LEED® certification is in progress with the U.S. Green Building Council.

Continuity in care and design

Each year some 2,000 new cancer patients select Abington Hospital for diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care – making its program one of the busiest cancer centers in the region. “A cancer diagnosis is something that no one should ever face alone,” said Steven J. Cohen, M.D., Medical Director, Asplundh Cancer Pavilion, and Chief of Medical Oncology and Hematology at Abington – Jefferson Health. “Under one roof, our patients and their families will find every available outpatient resource – from the latest clinical trials to our Image Recovery Center – all paired with excellence in multidisciplinary clinical care.”

Located on the campus of Abington-Jefferson Health in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, the new $80 million center offers a comprehensive continuum of leading-edge outpatient care, clinical research and support services in one modern facility. The center is actually two buildings connected by a link and unified by a curving façade, composed of a large glass curtainwall with metal accents.

Kawneer manufactured the large, vertical aluminum sun shade fins, and 8- to 12-inch-deep horizontal curtainwall cover plates. Linetec finished these architectural aluminum components in a hazelnut brown, textured wood grain color that captures the look and feel of wood without the associated maintenance.

Sidney-Kimmel-Cancer-Ctr-Abington-Jefferson-Health-(16-web)The look of wood, the performance of aluminum

Unlike real wood, the finished aluminum is termite and insect proof, UV and corrosion resistant, and fire retardant. The sun shades and accents maintain their intended appearance in all seasons, and do not swell, rot and warp. Linetec’s wood grain finishes meet the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s stringent AAMA 2604 test standards for ruggedness, chemical and weather resistance.

“Offering long-term durability, the finished aluminum components also are less costly than real wood, providing superior performance and retaining the natural aesthetic,” said Linetec’s Tammy Schroeder, LEED Green Associate.

As an environmentally responsible finisher, Linetec applies the wood grain coatings by starting with a powder coat then utilizing a heat transfer sublimation process. This produces no VOCs or other potentially harmful emissions that may be of extra concern to patients and health care professionals.

“Linetec performed great on this project and it shows,” praised Bob Kennedy of glazing contractor R.A. Kennedy & Sons, Inc.

On time, on budget, with local support

Sidney-Kimmel-Cancer-Ctr-Abington-Jefferson-Health-(13-web)Pennsylvania-based R.A. Kennedy & Sons, Inc. performed all of the exterior glazing, which included two- and four-sided structural glazed curtainwall, traditional curtainwall, aluminum entrances, and custom aluminum trims. Kawneer’s aluminum framing was used for center’s four-sided, structural glazed curtainwall. In this four-sided cassette system, glass and subframe were fabricated together by R.A. Kennedy and then installed on site into the curtainwall’s carrier frames. The two-sided system used a conventional structural glazing process.

Robert Ganter Contractors of Quaker, Pennsylvania, assisted R.A. Kennedy with the wood grain-finished sun shades and accents. LF Driscoll, located in Philadelphia and part of Structure Tone, Inc., managed the overall construction project, keeping the project on schedule and within budget. Asplundh Cancer Pavilion broke ground in May 2016, was substantially completed in 2017 and opened in June 2018.

Sidney-Kimmel-Cancer-Ctr-Abington-Jefferson-Health-(3-web)The center was funded in part by a lead gift made by the children of the late Carl and Emilie Asplundh, who honored their parents by naming the building. “Understanding the need for this new facility and expanded programming, our community has supported this effort by making more than 5,000 contributions to our Reimagine Cancer Care Campaign,” said Meg McGoldrick, president, Abington – Jefferson Health. “The Asplundh Cancer Pavilion represents our commitment to meeting the greatest health care needs of our community.”

Linetec People to Know – Cody Horne

Cody-Horne-5-2018-webTell me about your job
As a manufacturing engineer at Linetec, it is my job to research, develop and implement cost-effective tools, equipment and controls to continuously improve manufacturing processes. I also help achieve safety and production goals. Projects are often initiated after discussions with our associates, and then I evaluate, prioritize, manage and complete these projects. I work with engineers, contractors, fabricators, vendors and other Linetec associates to complete a wide variety of projects ranging from automated systems to carts.

What did you do prior to Linetec?
Prior to working at Linetec, I was a product engineer at JARP Industries, a local manufacturer of custom hydraulic cylinders for demanding applications. I started at JARP shortly after graduating from the University of Wisconsin (UW) Platteville with a CodyH-Susan-&-Cody-webmechanical engineering degree. I chose to pursue an opportunity at Linetec to be involved with more complex projects. UW-Platteville, UW-Marathon County and a variety of work experiences throughout college helped prepare me for the engineering career ahead of me. Work experiences included an internship at Hydratight, an internship at Neenah Paper, a co-op at Greenheck and a summer position at FAITH Technologies. Linetec associates may also recognize me as a former employee at Culver’s in Wausau. In short, I was very busy gaining experience and growing as an engineer before working at Linetec.

What is your favorite part of your job?
The most rewarding thing for me is seeing concepts turn into reality.

CodyH-Marigold-not-chewing-on-the-table-and-chairsWhat poses the biggest challenges for you?
As a young engineer, there are many aspects of my job that challenge me. These include troubleshooting existing equipment, specifying new equipment and managing multiple projects simultaneously. However, the biggest challenge for me is managing my work day. Each day, I have a plan for what I want to get done, but it seems like I am constantly reshuffling.

What is something you are looking forward to?
I am really looking forward to the holidays this year because it will be the first holiday season married to my wife, Susan. Hopefully this year we will finally visit the Rotary Winter Wonderland at the Wildwood Zoo in Marshfield! I am also looking forward to drinking eggnog out of my moose mug and champagne out of wedding champagne flutes!

Believe it or not, I am most excited to use the snow blower that my in-laws got my wife for her birthday.

CodyH-Susan-&-Cody-wedding-photo-webWhat is something people don’t know about you?
I enjoy cooking and love to buy kitchen gadgets. I like to turn leftovers into culinary masterpieces!

If Linetec gave you a surprise three day paid break to rest and recuperate, what would you do with those three days?
I would take my wife and our dogs, Ollie and Marigold, on a road trip to hike in Wisconsin’s state parks. Governor Dodge State Park and Devil’s Lake State Park are two parks that come to mind. If we could find dog friendly lodging, we might go to both parks in one trip. The dogs would sleep the whole way home!

CodyH-Ollie-&-Marigold-waiting-for-the-Packer-game-to-startWhat always cheers you up when you think about it?
I always cheer up when I think about my wife and our golden retrievers. When I need a reason to smile, I look at engagement pictures, wedding pictures and pictures of our dogs.

The Woolworth Tower Residences completes window retrofit

offering sweeping views of New York City from historically inspired, new, high-performance windows

Wausau, Wisconsin – The iconic Woolworth Tower Residences’ top 30 floors have completed extensive renovations. Promising sweeping views of the city, each residence showcases new, historically inspired, high-performance windows and terrace doors from Wausau Window and Wall Systems. Linetec provided thermal improvement and finishing services for the windows and doors.

The 33 luxury condominiums at 2 Park Place range from one to four bedrooms with amenities including a private garage, fitness facility and 55-foot-long lap pool, plus wine storage for each unit and a tasting room. Residents have access to an exclusive entertainment lounge aptly named The Gilbert Lounge in honor of Cass Gilbert, the renowned architect who designed the building in 1913.

NYC_WoolworthTwrResid2-8_OlegMarch-webThoughtful selection

Guided by Developer Alchemy Properties, the architectural vision of SLCE Architects, LLP and The Office of Thierry W Despont, Ltd., the Woolworth Tower Residences’ interiors display Calacatta marble, Dada cabinetry, elevated ceilings and herringbone-patterned oak floors. The exteriors’ polychromatic terra cotta surrounds have been restored to their former grandeur. Wausau’s oversized windows make the connection between outside and in with breathtaking views.

Together with general contractor CNY Group and window contractor, Kilroy Architectural Windows, Inc., Wausau’s windows and terrace doors were confirmed as the best choice to maintain the prestigious property’s historic detailing, while delivering modern-day performance and easy operation.

Complementing the buildings’ historic aesthetic, Linetec finished the windows’ aluminum exteriors in a color called “Dark as Night” using a two-coat 70 percent PVDF resin-based coating. These durable painted coatings meet the American Architectural Manufacturers Association’s AAMA 2605 stringent standards, exhibiting industry-leading resistance to humidity, color change, chalk, gloss loss and chemicals. The resulting finish helps extend the window systems’ lifespan and reduces future maintenance.

Kilroy Executive Vice President Bill Kennedy added, “The building owner has stated, ‘Your windows at the Woolworth look BEAUTIFUL.’ It’s a huge difference!”

NYC_WoolworthTwrResid3_OlegMarch-webCareful installation

Working with the Apogee Building Retrofit Strategy Team, Wausau provided Kilroy with more than 630 units of 4250i INvent Series Simulated Double-Hung Projected windows, finished by Linetec, for the Woolworth Tower Residences.

“As their name indicates, simulated double-hung projected windows look like double-hung windows, but actually project from the plane of the wall, either inward or outward,” said Apogee Retrofit Strategy Team member Kevin Robbins. “Offset glass planes and narrow meeting rail profiles replicated the appearance of existing windows.”

In Spring 2016, Kilroy began the multi-phased, scheduled retrofit project on the Woolworth Tower Residences. Floor-by-floor, the team carefully removed the existing double-hung units. These had been manufactured using non-thermal framing and 1-inch insulating glass without the low-e coatings available today. After removing the previous unit, the rough opening was prepared using pre-assembled, extruded aluminum “panning” trim to help ensure the new Wausau window were easily installed plumb and square.

“The product performance and quality has been excellent, as we always expect from Wausau. The support from the Wausau team has been outstanding and critical in order to ensure a successful project,” praised Kilroy’s Kennedy.

woolworth1-webEnhanced performance

Along with using low-e, insulating glass, Wausau relied on Linetec to provide polyamide thermal barriers within the aluminum frame of the windows and doors. Wausau INvent Series windows can achieve thermal performance NFRC U-Factors as low as 0.34, a Condensation Resistance Factor as high as 65 and acoustic performance Sound Transmission Class ratings of 31 to 42.

“The combination of these high-performance components – aided by the 4.5-inch-deep systems, as well as Wausau’s experienced engineering and quality fabrication – allow for minimal solar heat gain and better air infiltration performance, which supports energy efficiency and comfort,” explained Robbins.

He continued, “In addition to helping maintain the desired interior temperature, the windows and doors also reduce unwanted noise when closed. When the residents prefer to open their windows for natural ventilation, projected windows are easier to open than hung windows and eliminate balances, which require continual maintenance, especially in large sizes with heavy glass.”

Enduring appearance

The Woolworth Tower Residences’ new Wausau windows and terrace doors offer residents natural daylight and views of the cityscape from nearly every room, as well as the exterior terra cotta ornamentation surrounding the windows.

Robbins summarized the renovation project’s success saying, “Now completed, the windows on the Woolworth Tower Residences will provide improved thermal performance, which may be known only to the owner and occupants; while the windows’ visible contribution to the building’s historical look will remain evident to all.”

Wood grain finishes for homes: Warmth of wood, durability of aluminum

RA360-TableCherry--courtesy-of-Haas-Door-webOctober is Energy Awareness Month, aluminum garage doors are extremely durable and one of the most energy-efficient doors available.

Home builders, owners and residents want a house that looks great year-round, doesn’t require seasonal maintenance, and can withstand brutal winter weather or sizzling summer temperatures.

Exterior wood trim and building materials present a warm, welcoming, upscale appearance. However, as time passes, wood can rot, swell, warp and attract insects. Its finish can fade and flake. Continuous exposure to direct sunlight, humidity, rain, snow and other natural elements can cause damage and degradation.

When wood is installed in a highly visible, frequently used part of the home – such as a garage door, it also must contend with daily bumps, scrapes, car exhaust and road salts.

RA360-ColonyMaple--courtesy-of-Haas-Door-webHomeowners and builders no longer need to choose between the look of wood and the durable, low maintenance of metal. Now, they can have both with Linetec’s wood grain painted finishes for architectural aluminum building products. Textured wood grain finish options mimic not just the look, but also the feel of natural wood.

Typically, Linetec also can offer the preferred appearance of wood at less cost than real wood. Working with residential product manufacturers, Linetec uses a heat transfer sublimation process, starting with a high-performance powder coat paint to finish the aluminum in a choice of wood grain patterns and colors.

Haas Door also reminds homeowners that “the garage door is often the single most used door in a home on a daily basis. Having a newer garage door makes it a more pleasant way to exit and re-enter your home each day. Plus, a newer door can be more reliable and safer than an older door that has its best years of service behind it.”

When considering home remodeling and improvement projects, remember that wood grain finishes for aluminum building products can offer a good return on investment. According to Remodeling magazine’s “Cost vs. Value” 2018 report, common remodeling projects that have a high return vs. investment cost for a homeowner include:

  • an upscale garage door replacement, returning 98.3 percent;
  • a midrange deck addition, returning 82.8 percent; and
  • an upscale window replacement, returning 69.5 percent.

Whether selecting wood grain finishes for a new garage door, deck, railings, or window and door framing, Linetec has the pattern to meet the desired aesthetic and required performance.

RA360-National-Walnut---courtesy-of-Haas-Door-webLinetec’s Wood Grain Gold Series palette features 14 textured, wood grain finishes that meet the higher performance criteria of AAMA 2604. Additional finishes also are available in more than 50 wood grain patterns. These powder coat painted finishes meet the stringent standards of AAMA 2604 for color uniformity, specular gloss, dry film hardness and adhesion, as well as resistance to impact, chemicals, detergents, scratches, corrosion, salt spray and fading due to ultraviolet light. The coatings also are fire retardant, and resistant to water and humidity.

Supporting environmentally sound practices, Linetec’s wood grain finishes utilize a powder coat process that does not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Wood grain finishes can be specified with recycled aluminum content, and may be recycled after its long product lifespan.
