Tubelite introduces ForceFront Blast curtainwall and entry door

Tubelite announces ForceFront™ Blast curtainwall and entry door systems are now available for high-security projects seeking blast hazard mitigation in low- and mid-rise applications.

Providing complementary performance, aesthetics and environmental attributes, Tubelite’s ForceFront curtainwall and entry door products are manufactured using EcoLuminum™, a high recycled-content aluminum billet composition with eco-friendly, durable finishes. These qualities may contribute to projects seeking certification by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Rating System.

For projects in need of blast hazard mitigation, ForceFront Blast products are designed for compliance with ASTM International standard F1642-04, the U.S. General Services Administration Interagency Security Committee (GSA/ISC) security design criteria and U.S. Department of Defense Unified Facilities Criteria (DoD UFC) 4-010-01 requirements. The products are tested to meet blast performance of 6 psi peak pressure at 42 psi-msec impulse.

“This new system will complement our current product offering in many of our geographic areas with a high count of governmental buildings, such as the Virginia/D.C. area, the Carolinas and Texas,” says Tubelite’s marketing manager, Mary Olivier.

Tubelite’s ForceFront Blast entry doors feature durable tie-rod construction, 6-inch-wide stiles and heavy-duty hardware. A single door measures 3-feet-wide and 7-feet-high. A 5.5-inch back member reinforces the curtainwall system’s structural performance. The systems include nominal one-inch insulated glazing with a SentryGlas® Plus Interlayer. Dry glazing and sealing can be completed at the jobsite and a variety of anchor options are available to ease installation.

In addition to Tubelite’s new ForceFront Blast curtainwall and entry door systems, all of its products are manufactured using EcoLuminum. These include: energy-efficient Therml=Block™ entrances; standard doors, windows, storefront and curtainwall; and Max/Block™ sun shade and aLuminate™ light shelf daylight control systems.
