When aluminum or steel storefronts or curtain walls won’t do the trick, new wood-based Architectural Wall System may be the solution. These products bring fresh design possibilities to the light commercial market with its expansive glass aesthetic , sloped glazing option, and all-wood interiors , plus a vertical glazing system that provides load-bearing structural integrity.
Designs can include shed, gable, or circular styles , as well as skylight framing in flat plane , ridge , hip , or circular. The wall system can also incorporate aluminum-clad wood windows , doors , and corner units from the maker.
The vertical glazed systems are tested to ASTM standards for air and water infiltration and structural wind-load performance. The glazing styles all meet a 0.28 U-value or better , and are rated for DP50 or DP70 , depending on the application. The extruded aluminum exterior is available in unlimited AAMA 2605 powder-coated colors.
