YKK AP America Inc., a provider of hurricane impact and blast mitigation products for commercial applications, announces the YUW 750 XTH unitized wall system as a new addition to its advanced ProTek portfolio. The YUW 750 XTH unitized wall system achieves impact resistance, while exceeding the most stringent energy codes in the market today. The new unitized wall system is designed for use in low-to-mid-rise commercial buildings in coastal regions.
The YUW 750 XTH offers design flexibility and can be seamlessly configured for multi-span curtainwall applications, single-span ribbon walls, and combinations that transition between curtainwall and ribbon wall. The system can be specified for a fully captured appearance with visible exterior face covers, in four-sided structural silicone glazed (SSG) for an all glass exterior appearance, or a combination of both for complete design flexibility. It also boasts an advanced thermal barrier design to yield U-factors as low as 0.30.
