EXTECH/Exterior Technologies, Inc.: Engineered Daylighting Systems
EXTECH is a designer and manufacturer of wall, window, and skylight systems for commercial and industrial applications. Although we work with several façade materials, we specialize in cellular polycarbonate glazing.
Cellular Polycarbonate offers many benefits:
- Diffused daylighting provides optimum interior lighting
- Impact Resistance
- Lightweight material requires less structural support and lower installation costs
- Insulating values up to U-.20 (R-5). This is superior to insulated glass sytems.
- Panels can be cold formed to a small radius, unlike glass
- Up to 15 Year Warranties from the panel manufacturer
- The most advanced aluminum framing systems in the industry in a wide range of finishes
- All of our products are designed for durability as well as ease of installation and maintenance
- 100% Recyclable panels and aluminum framing is LEED Credit friendly
EXTECH's creative fabrication philosophy enables us to produce unique and unexpected solutions. We take pride in our ability to assist architects and owners from concept to fabrication and installation using creativity, engineering expertise, and the highest quality materials to achieve their design goals. Our systems are backed by our professional staff of talented and experienced architects and engineers. Our team focuses on cellular polycarbonate for use in the fabrication of architectural and industrial solutions. We strive to provide technologies that are current and relevant to your business.
EXTECH supports sustainability by providing customers value and performance through fabrication of products and services that:
- Demonstrate responsibility toward people & communities.
- Minimize negative environmental impact.
- Promote environmental stewardship, especially through reuse, recycling, and renewal.
Bring high-quality diffused light deep into your building’s interior via translucent walls. Cellular polycarbonate glazing offers outstanding impact resistance and high insulation levels compared to glass. EXTECH offers several systems to meet your needs and the engineering ability to bring your design to life. Contact us directly for design assistance and information about wind load capacity and long spanning options.
EXTECH skylights are energy efficient and leak free. Available in both fixed and operable styles including our patented Top-Hinged Skylight #5300 which allows for maximum light and ventilation in high-bay scenarios. Glaze with glass or for added impact resistance and insulation, cellular polycarbonate.
Translucent Canopies by EXTECH are engineered for high performance. We offer standing seam, surface mount and self-supporting designs capable of spanning large opening. These durable canopies are an ideal choice for commercial and industrial canopies, pavilions and walkways.
EXTECH/Exterior Technologies Inc.’s top-hinged window and skylight system #5300 provides massive ventilation and daylighting in a patented design which allows them to be left open during normal rainfall. When glazed with cellular polycarbonate they also provide exceptional insulating value and resistance to impact. This system holds up in abusive industrial environments.
We also offer fixed windows, including our interlocking panel #3440, our most popular product. EXTECH windows are more aesthetically pleasing and perform better than FRP sandwich panels. Cellular polycarbonate panels are not subject to fiber bloom or yellowing challenges faced with FRP sandwich panels. They also allow for high quality translucent daylighting resulting in increased productivity and reduced energy costs.
EXTECH is proud to help architects solve challenges through engineering. Some of our key projects include the Community Rowing Boathouse in Boston, MA by Anmahian Winton Architects, where we helped design uniquely venting doors that weren’t available on the market. We also engineered the “Articulated Cloud” flapper wall at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. Envisioned by Ned Kahn and designed by Koning-Eizenberg Architecture, this unique structure demonstrates wind patterns.
Mortarless Glass Block
Ideal for transit applications, our mortarless glass block systems are designed for rain/windscreens and interior applications. Solid glass blocks are practically unbreakable, providing a high degree of vandal resistance. This system requires virtually zero maintenance- simply spray wash and it’s done. Rigid aluminum framing systems include our Gridlock system which allows blocks to simply snap into place.
Cellular polycarbonate is the perfect material to create unique, durable displays, walls or ceiling panels. By diffusing light, the panels provide a comfortable reading or working environment when used as ceiling panels. Due to their light weight, panels are easily removed for maintenance, but durable enough to withstand abuse. When used in displays or as walls, translucent polycarbonate is easily back lit for a glowing effect.
Porcelain faced panels offer superior resistance. Perfect for transit applications, they require nearly zero maintenance; even remove the toughest permanent marker with standard cleaners. Individual panels are removable with disturbing adjacent panels for inspections, wiring and maintenance. The porcelain panel system also allows for repeated installation and removal of adhered advertising films and easy installation of devices such as signs, lighting, strobe lights etc.
