Thread-topic: [CRTech] Re: Studio Window Supplier

I recall that my dad had some windows installed in a studio he build.  He had the trim on one window installed with screws so it could be easily removed so one pane could be removed for cleaning inside.   I worked at a TV station where I wished we could easily remove one pane for cleaning.  The would aim a studio camera through a double pane window for the news update from the news room.  We always had to lower the black level on the camera to make the dirty window less noticeable.

Our campus has a handyman who did the install. The difference really happens in the glass. If I recall correctly, one 30x30 double pane window we had built required 2 guys to position it because it was so heavy.

Another consideration is to be SURE you clean the inside surface of multiple window assemblies VERY well. In past installations we remember being irritated that a fingerprint was visible between the two double pane windows and was inaccessible between rooms.

Heavy glass makes a difference.

I had a local remodeling contractor do ours,  he took care ordering the glass from a local supplier.   The contractor took care of all materials and label.  Was very reasonably priced and was done in a day.

> We’re renovating studios in Nashville and on the list is to install two new windows between studios to expand functionality.  Our timeline is fairly short to get the work done here and I’ve been unable to locate a supplier for the studio window assemblies with less than 6-7 week lead.  We’re looking for either a pre-assembled vertical glass and angled glass window, or a field assembled unit.  Anyone have a good source they can recommend that might be able to beat 6-7 week lead?


It's not preassembled or a field-assembled kit, but have you considered simply spec'ing what you want to the local contractor?

At my last employer (a really large radio network), we would simply specify the specific construction technique as something the local [construction] contractor would build directly.  I don't have the plans at hand, but it basically involved a set of blueprint details that showed how two panes of 1/2" glass would be laid in the walls at non-vertical/non-parallel angles with appropriate caulking and sound-proof weather-stripping all around the edges.  Of course, the thickness of the wall had to be properly accounted (e.g. due to floating/double wall construction, double layers of 5/8" drywall on both sides, heavy insulation inside the walls, and carpet-style covering on either side) to ensure that the overall window thickness would allow the two panes to have the appropriate angle and clearance inside the window trim.

It worked pretty well at isolating sound, and since it was field-constructed from scratch, the trim and finish ended up matching the rest of the studio build very well.
