The look of Unicel Architectural’s Therm+ H-I Timber Curtain Wall (TCW) system is unmistakable: A textured and timeless expansive glass wall accentuated by elegant and rich wood highlights.
This aesthetic appeal makes Unicel Architectural’s TCW a perfect solution to meet and exceed architectural design aspirations while bathing indoor spaces in increased natural light, for passive solar heating and well-documented health benefits.
But Unicel Architectural’s Therm+ H-I TCW system is also a practical addition to any building project due to its unmatched functionality, including greater air tightness and wind resistance than other curtain wall products on the market.
Backed by German engineered RAICO technology and combined with Unicel Architectural’s industry-leading glazing products, they can be outfitted with double or triple glazed Vision Control® louvered insulating glass units (IGUs) for effortless control of vision, light, temperature and sound.
TCW’s timber facades can be fabricated from a range of woods, including glue laminated Black spruce, Douglas fir, White oak and other glulam species contributing to biophilic design.
All Unicel Architectural TCW systems are assembled at our state-of-the-art factory and are ready to install the moment they arrive at the job site.
