Description: Commercial aluminum windows in a residential setting can pose a lot of problems if not designed properly by using the proper window system, glass and heating and air conditioning set up. On this project we used Fulton Fulwall IV Artic Wall curtain wall assembly and Solarban 60 low E coating with warm edge spacer and argon gas in the thermo unit. Condensation buildup and thermal transfer was reduced considerably with this system and with the proper perimeter insulation and air vapour barrier tie in the job was a success. You will also notice the oversized operating window portals on the roof which are motorized to allow the heat to escape in the summer.
