Timber-Framed Glasswall - Model GT
Hufcor's timber-framed glass panels combine the beauty of wood and glass to allow light into your space. The glass also allows the activities in the area to be monitored, if needed.
Timber-framed Glasswall consists of glass surrounded with a combination of solid and engineered wood. Each wood frame is composed of triple laminated solid wood top and bottom rails and stiles that are constructed from custom made veneers, solid wood edges and an engineered wood core, to ensure a sturdy, durable construction.
Glass panels are suspended from overhead tracks -- no floor tracks or guides are needed; however, the panels require floor pins to keep the panels secure in the opening.
Heights to 102 [3.1m] are standard. Taller heights may be ordered, however, modifications to the frame may be required. Contact your Hufcor Distributor for assistance.
Panels are most often ordered with clear or satiny translucent tempered glass. However, custom glass, etching, decals, acrylic inserts and more can also be ordered.
Designing glass panels into your facility allows natural sunlight into your space, which could qualify for LEED points for Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Credit 8.2: Daylight and Views-1 point.
Choose wood frames of Oak, Maple, Cherry or Douglas Fir. Prices vary by species selected. These species are the most requested; however, other wood species are available.
The standard timber-framed panel is a frame of wood with a glass insert; however, the wood may be modified to meet a specific design. Examples of custom frames are mullions or solid wood inserts.
The wood frame is designed to accommodate a variety of inserts approximately 1/4 [6mm] thick.
The most popular inserts are glass and include:
- 1/4" [6mm] tempered glass (standard)
- Acid washed or full height satiny translucent
- 5/16  laminated glass (factory approval required)
- Specialty glass (factory approval required)
Custom Inserts include:
- Decorative acrylic
- Solid wood
