Tubelite offers new Therml=Block curtainwall with EcoLuminum recycled aluminum

Tubelite Inc. introduces Therml=Block™ 300ES Curtainwall, the newest product manufactured using EcoLuminum™, a high recycled-content aluminum billet composition featuring environmentally-friendly finishes.

“Our new 300ES curtainwall contributes to superior energy-savings, which supports green goals and rating systems, such as LEED. It’s ideal for schools, medical facilities, low-rise office buildings and other projects up to four-stories-tall,” says Mary Olivier, Tubelite’s marketing manager. “It can be installed from either the building interior or exterior, helping reduce installation time and expense in the field.”

Therml=Block 300ES Curtainwall features a 1.5-inch thermal strut and accommodates one-inch-thick insulating glass. The curtainwall system’s high performance provides a low, 0.46 U-Value for thermal transmittance due to conduction and a high 72 CRF for Condensation Resistance of the framing. The aluminum-framed, exterior face displays a 2.24-inch sightline with an overall system depth of six inches.

Olivier adds, “The system’s construction allows for different finishes to match both exterior and interior décor.” Tubelite’s painted finishes are applied and controlled in an environmentally effective manner. For low-maintenance durability, its eco-friendly anodize finishes send 90 percent less waste to landfills than traditional anodizing processes.

Because each profile extruded for Therml=Block 300ES Curtainwall is manufactured using Tubelite’s EcoLuminum, it contains a minimum of 80 percent reclaimed aluminum. This incorporates a post-consumer content average of 34 percent. Special requests for even higher recycled content can be provided, up to and including meeting specifications requiring 100 percent reclaimed aluminum.

Tubelite’s Therml=Block 300ES Curtainwall joins the company’s other energy-savings products, which include the Therml=Block insulated door and the Max/Block™ daylight control sunshade system.

Tubelite will be exhibiting at AIA Expo2010 in booth #2541.
