Engineered to meet and exceed the most stringent sustainable building codes and standards, the YCW 750 XT IG utilizes MegaTherm thermal struts to deliver robust thermal performance. Utilizing 1-inch insulating glass units, the YCW 750 XT IG offers high thermal performance and achieves an overall system U-factor as low as 0.30. The curtainwall system features an integral face cover, requiring less fabrication and field labor, thus reducing the overall cost. A dual finish option and two-sided structural silicone glazing option are standard features.
YKK AP also made improvements to its ThermaShade sun control system. ThermaShade is engineered to improve occupant comfort and lower energy consumption by decreasing solar heat gain. The expanded options allow designers to maintain the functional benefit of the original ThermaShade system while offering a new design option.
ThermaShade sunshades integrate seamlessly with YKK AP’s façade systems and are available in an entire range of standard and premium finishes. Architects also have the luxury of choosing from more than 100 standard design options, including 24-, 30-, and 36-inch outrigger projections, four outrigger designs, eight louvers and five standard fascia. Architects may also work with YKK AP application engineers for customized solutions to achieve their design needs.
