NORCROSS, Georgia – Kawneer Company, Inc., the leading manufacturer of architectural aluminum products and systems for commercial construction, introduces the new Trifab® VersaGlaze® 601/601T/601UT Front Set Framing System, the first front set, ultra-thermal 6" storefront system available. Expanding on a proven platform, Trifab® VersaGlaze® 601 offers architects a choice of front and center glass plane applications in non-thermal, thermal and ultra-thermal configurations.


Framing Flexibility
Ideal for a wide range of building projects, including those where an economical alternative to a low-rise curtain wall is desired, the 3-in-1 series includes the non-thermal Trifab® 601, the single thermal break Trifab® 601T and the dual thermal break Trifab® 601UT. The Trifab® VersaGlaze® 601/601T/601UT Front Set Framing System employs screw spline, shear block and stick joinery construction for efficient fabrication and installation. Structural silicone glazing (SSG) options allow for an even greater range of design possibilities.


The system’s 6" depth accommodates higher spans than conventional 4-1/2" storefront framing systems. By combining the greater 6" depth with superior thermal performance and two glass plane options, Kawneer bridges the gap between traditional framing systems and low-rise curtain walls, making this one of the most versatile framing systems available.


Exceptional Performance
The new front set framing system features an enhanced sill design with improved water intrusion performance. This system meets the same high standards for air and water infiltration and thermal performance traditionally found in Kawneer products.
