YCW 750 XTP - High Performance Curtain Wall Featuring Dual Thermal Barriers and Polyamide Pressure Plates
Category: Curtain Walls
YCW 750 XTP yields best-in-class thermal performance and features polyamide struts. This system exceeds not only current codes, but also exceeds the most stringent green building codes and standards in the market today.
YCW 750 XTP not only provides best-in-class performance with YKK AP’s MegaTherm® structural polyamide struts, but adds an additional thermal barrier which increases this curtain wall’s thermal performance. With the addition of a low conductivity pressure plate made from an industry proven material, Polyamide 6/6, this system exceeds not only current codes, but also exceeds the most stringent green building codes and standards in the market today. The addition of a PVC perimeter flat filler better maintains the thermal performance over traditional aluminum fillers. The polyamide pressure plate is a superior alternative to competitive fiberglass products that require special handling and equipment during fabrication.
