The Wistar Institute, an international leader in basic biomedical research, has opened a new $100 million research building: The Robert and Penny Fox Tower, in the heart of Philadelphia, PA. The seven-story, 89,700-square-foot tower supplies five new floors of laboratory space for cancer research, genetics and vaccine development. Each floor was uniquely designed with a state-of-the-art, open-plan providing a collaborative environment for Wistar professors and their research groups.

Kenseal Construction Products had the opportunity to supply material for this high-profile project. The Kenseal Philadelphia team supplied Tremco Commercial Sealants and Waterproofing products including ExoAir® 110, Spectrem® 1 and Proglaze® ETA Engineered Transition Assembly to a valued customer.

Proglaze® ETA Engineered Transition Assembly provides a proven solution from a single source to simplify the installation of transitions from window or curtain wall systems to wall assemblies. This patent-pending innovation provides a mechanical attachment from the window to the wall assembly to ensure a continuous, compatible and durable seal. With Proglaze ETA, this transition is an easily specified extension of the window assembly. When used in conjunction with Tremco’s ExoAir® 110, long-term air and moisture protection can be assured and is backed by a performance warranty unprecedented in the industry today.

This comprehensive air barrier system was critical to improving the building’s efficiency, indoor comfort and longevity. Kenseal is proud to be part of this expansion and renovation project.
