Delivering ultra-thermal performance in a unitized curtain wall system

July 31, 2015

Think limitless

Your vision is unique and complex. It pushes boundaries. It takes design to a new level. It personifies aspirational performance and expansive aesthetics. It demands respect and inspires awe. Your vision doesn’t come in a box.

Introducing Kawneer’s 2500 UT Unitwall™ System. Delivering ultra-thermal performance in a unitized curtain wall system.

Delivering ultra-thermal performance in a unitized curtain wall system

Thermal Performance

The 2500 UT Unitwall™ System employs a continuous polyamide thermal break vertically and horizontally, providing ultra-thermal performance levels in a cost effective unitized curtain wall system. In addition, the one-piece polyamide thermal break eliminates pressure plates and fasteners, reducing the amount of metal used and time required to assemble the system. And ultra-thermal performance allows architects and designers to take their vision to a new level, regardless of climate or location.

Economy & Flexibility

2500 UT Unitwall™ System provides options that allow architects and contractors to meet tough project timelines, while delivering enhanced thermal performance and lower overall operating costs for building owners. Unitized construction accelerates installation while minimizing disruption to the surrounding area or existing tenants, making it an exceptional choice for new or retrofit applications, particularly in urban areas or where space is limited.

Aesthetics

The 2-1/2" profile of the 2500 unitized curtain wall system allows for maximum design opportunities from the base chassis. The four-sided captured system allows for crisp sightlines, while the four-sided SSG option delivers a seamless transition between units, or the combination of captured horizontals with vertical SSG mullions offers a design accent.

The 2500 UT Unitwall™ System marries the elegant aesthetic of a gleaming glass unitized curtain wall with ultra-thermal performance built into the design, allowing you to think limitless.

A cost-effective, unitized framing system that reduces the time to fabricate, assemble, glaze and install, 2500 UT also offers ultra-thermal performance. With a variety of flexible options – from four-sided captured exterior covers to structural silicone glazed (SSG) configurations – this sturdy, high-performance system is ideal for commercial applications, mid- to high-rise projects and more.
