Tubelite introduces curtainwall with fiberglass pressure plate

Expanding on its selection of products with high thermal performance and condensation resistance, Tubelite Inc.   introduces 400 Series Curtainwall with Fiberglass Pressure Plate.

The fiberglass pressure plates are applied from the exterior making them ideal for the lower levels of high-rise buildings and buildings with fewer than six stories.The high thermal performance makes them well-suited for cold climates and high-humidity environments,” says Tubelite’s marketing manager, Mary Olivier.

 

Minimizing the need for on-site cutting and fabricating, screw holes and weeps are machined at the factory into the off-white, pultruded fiberglass material.

 

Tubelite’s 400 Series Curtainwall with Fiberglass Pressure Plate has a 2.5-inch sightline and the strength of variable-depth back-members from 4 to 7 inches. Snap-on covers, available in a wide range of colors, allow for different finishes on interior and exterior exposed surfaces.

 

The curtainwall system’s metal back members and snap-on covers can be extruded by Tubelite using EcoLuminum(TM), a high recycled-content aluminum billet composition with eco-friendly, durable finishes. These attributes may contribute to obtaining additional credits as outlined in the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC’s) LEED(R) Green Rating System(TM).

 

Tubelite can provide products that are manufactured using EcoLuminum, including: energy-efficient Therml=Block(TM) entrances; standard doors, windows, storefront and curtainwall; and Max/Block(TM) sunshade and aLuminate(TM) light shelf daylight control systems.
