ForceFront Storm® 2-1/2″ Curtainwall

Available in single-span, twin-span, captured, and silicone sealed glazing options.


ForceFront-Storm Curtainwall (FFS-CW) Framing is a 2-1/2″ face pressure bar system for use on single and twin-span applications in impact building code areas. This captured or silicone-glazed system is designed for use with 1-5/16″ laminated glass. FFS-CW meets the requirements of HVHZ windzone 4 – large missile impact [ASTM E1886-05/1996-09 TAS 201].

Forcefront Medium Stile and Monumental Entrance Doors compliment the curtainwall providing a complete impact-resistant system that’s easy to fabricate and install. These doors meet the requirements of windzone 3 – large missile impact [ASTM E1886-05/1996-09] and passed the forced entry test [AAMA 1304-02].

FFS-CW is available with a thermally improved tongue area using an EPDM isolator between interior and exterior members. It can be ordered with Tubelite’s high recycled aluminum content of Ecoluminum®, and both the storefront and doors with the environmentally friendly anodizing and painting.
