JERSEY CITY, NJ — Crystal Window & Door Systems has supplied heavy-commercial aluminum windows and louver HVAC panels for the new luxury rental high-rise The Lenox in Jersey City. Located at 207-213 Van Vorst St., the 15-story building used a total of 2,043 energy efficient Crystal windows and 155 louver panels supplied through Crystal, factory installed in the window framing.
The inclusion of several roof setbacks, a courtyard, and a mixed façade of brick, metal panels, with large expanses of glass windows affords The Lenox great architectural appeal.
The Lenox project predominately used the Crystal Series 5100 fixed picture aluminum windows, with nearly 1,000 units ordered. This 3-¼” frame window boasts an outstanding AW-PG100 AAMA rating and several of the individual Series 5100 units were specified as large as 59-¾” x 108”. While most of the Series 5100 windows were outfitted with the traditional double-glass insulating glass units (IGUs), many received a louver glazing to accommodate the apartment PTAC units. Reliable Architectural Products of Geneva, AL supplied 155 Model AEL-42 Type 7116 louvers, which were factory installed by Crystal into the Series 5100 window frames.
The project also involved the use of almost 900 Crystal heavy-commercial Series 5600 aluminum two-lite sliders. The 3-¼” jamb depth Series 5600 window is AW-PG40/PG50 AAMA rated.
