400 Series Curtainwall

400 Series Curtainwall Cutaway

Designed for low- and mid-rise applications, the durable framework of the 400 Series Curtainwall provides exceptional structural performance reducing the need for steel reinforcing. This system has a sightline of 2-1/2″ and the strength of variable-depth backmembers from 3-3/8″ to 8″. An exterior screw-applied pressure bar secures the glass.

Snap-on covers, available in a wide range of colors, allow for different finishes on interior and exterior exposed surfaces. Silicone-glazed verticals are available for a seamless appearance.

400SS Screw Spline Curtainwall

Tubelite_400SS

Tubelite’s screw spline curtainwall product has been totally re-designed to further reduce fabrication and installation labor and improve thermal performance. 400SS can be pre-assembled, pre-sealed (i.e. water dams) and pre-glazed in the shop, or stick fabricated for field glazing.

Glass is positioned to the system exterior for enhanced resistance to rainwater. Seven anodized finishes and 20 standard paint colors are available on this framing system to complement any project with warranteed protection, as well as street appeal. The 400SS also accepts Tubelite’s Operable Windows, Therml=Block® Doors, Maxblock® Sunshades and aLuminate® light shelves.

400SS Series Curtainwall is recommended for use on medium- and low-rise applications. The 1/2″ bite securely grips insulated glass or panels of 1″ thickness. Infill thicknesses from 1/8 inch to 1-5/16 inches also can be accommodated. Verticals can be steel-reinforced for high performance against strong windloads. A new intermediate horizontal member allows for 1/2″ expansion/contraction clearances to minimize splice requirements. Other optional features include a top of slab anchoring system and lifting lugs for panelized installation. Thorough testing by an independent laboratory ensures the 400SS will perform as described when installed per Tubelite’s instructions.
