CRL-U.S. Aluminum

CRL-U.S. Aluminum Series's 4500 Curtain Wall System is available in two configurations: captured vertical glazed and structural silicone glazed vertical. They feature pressure-relieved horizontals with a UNIflash System to sweep infiltrated water to the exterior. UNIflash does not require installation of rigid vinyl internal flashing in horizontals. The thermally-broken curtainwall system has exterior and interior members that are internally joined with nonconductive, injection-molded thermoplastic connectors for thermal isolation.
