Kawneer’s Clearwall™ Curtain Wall Recognized by Glass Magazine with Crystal Achievement Award

This fall, Glass Magazine awarded Kawneer’s Clearwall™ Curtain Wall with its 2011 “Most Innovative Curtain Wall Product” Crystal Achievement Award. This is the fifth time we have been recognized with a Crystal Achievement Award.

Designed to honor innovation in the commercial, retail and fabrication markets, the Crystal Achievement Awards recognize significant accomplishments in architectural glass technology, manufacturing and marketing. Kawneer’s previous awards were received for “Most Innovative Print Media,” “Most Innovative Comprehensive Marketing Program,” “Most Innovative Door Application” and “Most Innovative Web Site, Large Company.”

Our Clearwall™ Curtain Wall was developed to meet a growing demand for an admired monolithic look for low-rise applications. As a unique addition to our range of high-performance curtain wall products, Clearwall™ Curtain Wall is an innovative 4-sided toggle glazed (TG) system¹ with a breakthrough glass retaining mechanism. And, as a cost-effective alternative to four-sided structural silicone glazed (SSG) systems, Clearwall™ Curtain Wall’s unique toggle mechanism reduces installation labor, simplifies on-site logistics and enhances safety while providing superior aesthetics. The curtain wall is also offered in two other glazing options. Each option accommodates one-inch insulating glass and also uses the unique toggle system. The additional options incorporate an attached interface to the glass with structural silicone or 3M™ VHB™² structural glazing tape. The curtain wall also features a shear block fabrication option, which uses deep mullions and is available for all three glazing methods.

This year’s Crystal Achievement Award winners were featured in the September issue of Glass Magazine and recognized at GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo in Atlanta.
