We don't need a flashy billboard to remind you that some of the best things in life save you time and money while also performing great. It could be a new washing machine or a hybrid car; everyone wants their cake and to eat it too.

The facade of a building is no different and that's why the 400SS Series Screw Spline curtainwall is a flawless example of performance and savings working together. The thermal isolator and thick gasketing provide you with exceptional metrics to meet or exceed stringent energy codes, while the design allows for shop-fabricating and pre-glazing, giving you significant labor savings in the field.

The Baptist Heath medical office building in North Little Rock, Arkansas is a perfect example of the harmonious use of multiple Tubelite systems on one project. The structure includes the 400T Series curtainwall, 4500 Series storefront and wide stile doors. Thomas Bradford from Tubelite installer Conway Glass snapped this great job site picture.

Will Stephenson from Clayton Commercial Glazing captured this progress shot of a new addition to Perimeter Park in Morrisville, North Carolina. The project utilized Tubelite T14000 I/O Series storefront and 400CW Series curtainwall to bring natural light into the office building.

Tubelite would like to send our sincerest gratitude to those on the front lines who are still working hard to keep us safe and healthy. We are humbled by our part in constructing the facilities for healthcare workers, emergency responders, pharmacies and grocery stores, and we continue to work with our glazing partners on these essential projects. Whether it's yourself, a loved one or a friend, we thank you each and every day for your actions and efforts.
