Unit-Glazed Systems offer architects the aesthetics of a curtain wall with the simplified logistics of a unitized window wall. They also eliminate the installation and load challenges that curtain walls pose. Optional slab edge covers provide a seamless curtain wall profile with convenient window wall functionality.
With unitized system fabrication done in the shop, units arrive to the job site ready to assemble, which means the building can be closed faster for the general contractor and other trades. Finally, in-house fabrication allows closer supervision, resulting in a higher quality product.
The key to the Unit-Glazed Systems is the innovative unit split mullions and gravity loaded sill flashing. They enable pre-glazed sections to easily snap together on the job site. This simplifies logistics and reduces the amount of field labor needed by as much as 50%.
The Unit-Glazed Systems are thermally broken and incorporate 1” insulating glass to provide excellent thermal performance. They also meet or exceed industry standards for air and water infiltration. C.R. Laurence Unit-Glazed Systems include:
- Series 4500SSG Structural Silicone Glazed Window Wall
- Series TT601 Top Notch Window Wall
- Series IT451 Center Glazed Thermal Storefront
- Series FT451 Flush Front Offset Glazed Thermal Storefront
Because of simplified logistics, exceptional thermal performance, and clean sightlines, the Unit-Glazed Systems deliver a practical, forward-thinking approach to facade design and installation.
