Category: Curtain Walls

YHC 300 OG is a high performance curtain wall system designed and tested to provide innovative impact and blast solutions for a wide range of applications and design pressures from 45 PSF all the way to 130 PSF.

The 3” face dimension ensures recommended glass clearances are maintained. Dry glazing options (for all design pressure ranges) slash installation time for quicker building dry-in.

“Essential Facilities,” such as hospitals, fire stations and shelters, must remain functional during a storm. Evacuation isn’t practical or even possible in many cases. The ASTM E 1886 / 1996 standard provides a test protocol for “Essential Facilities” that for years was not economically feasible for glazed products. At 80 feet per second, a Level E missile impact produces more than twice the impact energy of the widely recognized Large Missile Level D.

Design flexibility was a priority in the development process. Maximum glass size is 5’ x 8’ and can be incorporated into typical single span and multiple span applications. The combination of system design, dry glazing and inner layer selection has enabled us to offer the most price competitive “Essential Facility” system in the market.

Sea Scout Base Galveston

Featured Project

Sea Scout Base Galveston

On the shores of Offatts Bayou in Galveston, Texas, a five-story, 60,000-square-foot-building rises above the neighboring structures. The building, Sea Scout Base Galveston, is a state-of-the-art learning center designed to cultivate youth interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) topics, as well as sailing.
