CharacteristicsFactory-assembled aluminum framed system, fully-gasketed curtainwall joinery, complete with structurally-glazed IGUs and outboard-insulated rainscreen finishes.
Island’s unitized curtainwall assemblies are fully customizable aluminum-framed enclosure solutions, based upon a series of pre-tested curtainwall systems. Each curtainwall application is tailored to meet the specific needs of a project – from engineering considerations to thermal performance and nuances of the architectural design intent. The unitized system is developed through shop drawings and mockup testing before fabrication begins at Island’s Calverton facility. The factory-glazed assemblies are shipped to the site and installed in-sequence to enclose each floor – allowing the greater project team to minimize on-site efforts and maximize quality-control.
