14000 I/O Series Multiplane Storefront Framing

14000 I/O CutawayThe I/O means more design options!

Glass or panels can be positioned to the inboard (I) or outboard (O) side of the 4-1/2″ depth frame to achieve the look you imagine. Typical glass thickness is 1″, and can be installed from the outside or inside of the building. Special glazing pocket reducers allow the use of 1/4″ infill thicknesses too.

14000 I/O Series thermal barrier insulates exterior surfaces from the interior to minimize temperature transfer. This provides industry accepted performance for CRF (condensation resistance) and Uc (conduction).

Using the same design, assembly, and accessories as the 14000 center glazed system allows combining inboard, outboard and center planes of glass in the same elevation, with the same great performance.

14650 Series Storefront Framing

A new look for a timeless design. 14650 Series has the same design, assembly, and accessories as the 14000 center glazed system’s 2″ face with a 6-1/2″ depth. This additional 2″ depth on the interior side of the frame provides greater structural properties and allows taller first floor openings. The wider profile also cuts a distinctive image for a storefront that stands out from the crowd.

14650 Series provides industry accepted performance for CRF (condensation resistance) and Uc (conduction), using the same thermal barrier as the 14000 and 14000 I/O systems.
