QuadroClad™ Glass Façade Panels / Hunter Douglas Contract

This month, we would like to introduce QuadroClad™ Glass Façade Panels, a great product from the Facades line of Hunter Douglas Contract.

Glass Façades systems offer aesthetic versatility and equally functional coverage. Hunter Douglas Contract’s glass systems enable a wide range of design possibilities, including custom printing, shading/fritting, and more.

Fully integrated with their engineered carrier system, this system is ideal for facade retrofits, allowing a functional and aesthetic makeover of an entire building exterior, including over-cladding without the need for window replacement.
