Clima-Tite™ Wall Systems

Clima-Tite Wall Systems

In order to create the pultruded fiberglass members in a Clima-Tite system, continuous strands of glass are combined with resins and pulled through a heated die. Pultruded fiberglass has numerous advantages over aluminum, including dimensional stability and increased protection from temperature differences and condensation, which can enhance occupant comfort.

Fiberglass is also environmentally sound, as the manufacturing processes require less energy compared to aluminum (about 80% less embodied energy). The main ingredient in fiberglass is silica sand, an abundant natural material. Once properly converted, the inherent thermal properties of fiberglass allow for reduced HVAC loads, which can reduce greenhouse emissions. The long lifespan and durability of pultruded fiberglass also delivers reduced costs over the lifetime of the system.

Peformance

Clima-Tite translucent panel wall systems feature the following performance benefits:

  • Pultruded framing offers enhanced thermal performance and corrosion resistance, as well as low thermal conductivity (eliminates the need for thermal breaks)
  • Pultruded framing is also electrically non-conductive - unlike aluminum – and is UV resistant
  • High impact resistance - reinforcing fibers distribute load
  • Snap-to-lock installation feature keeps panels in place without visible fasteners – simple installation
  • Standard 2-3/4” panel width, available in panel sizes up to 5’ x 16’
  • A variety of grid patterns are available, in sizes from 6” x 6” up to 12” x 24”
  • Crystal, White, Ice Blue, Aqua, Desert Rose and Tan exterior sheet colors available
  • Three insulation options available – center of panel U-factors as low as .08, system U-factors as low as .14
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficients as low as .06
  • Mixed glazed systems available – combining translucent panels with operable or fixed windows
  • Industry-best warranties – 25 year fiberbloom and up to 20 year color change
