NORCROSS, Georgia – Kawneer Company, Inc., the leading manufacturer of architectural aluminum products and systems for commercial construction, introduces the new 1620UT/1620UT SSG Curtain Wall System. Built on the success of the 1600UT Curtain Wall platform and a narrow 2" (50.8 mm) sightline, the systems feature an engineered polymer thermal separator and accommodate 1" insulating glass, making them ideal in climates where high thermal performing façades are needed.


Sleek Design
Merging a slim, sleek sightline with advanced thermal performance, 1620UT Curtain Wall Systems offer several design options including a traditional captured look or a two-sided vertical SSG mullion solution that permits greater uninterrupted sightlines. Both systems use concealed fasteners in their joinery construction to create flush and unbroken sightlines. Additionally, mullion depth options provide both aesthetic and structural choices, giving the design team flexibility.


Ease of Installation
To minimize installation time and labor, straight cuts without notching simplify fabrication, and a pre-engineered rain screen pressure-equalized (RSPE) back pan option is available that uses easy-to-install spandrel adapters.

1620UT Curtain Wall Systems have been rigorously tested to United States and Canadian standards. In fact, exceeding building code thermal transmittance energy requirements for North America is not an issue with system U-factors ranging from 0.30-0.32 when using glass with a 0.24 CoG value.
