Product FeaturesWhere faster installation and performance meet
As budgets continue to tighten and construction schedules become more stringent, the demands for high quality products, fast installation, simplified fabrication, superior performance and design flexibility have increased. Kawneer’s 1600 SS Curtain Wall systems and 1600 SS (Pre-glazed) Curtain Wall System offer a screw spline solution engineered to answer those demands and more. Offered in both stock lengths and/or fabricated, glazing contractors can benefit from the flexibility of providing fabrication and pre-glazing under controlled conditions in their own shop.
1600 SS Curtain Wall 
With screw spline joinery, the product can be pre-assembled, joint sealed and delivered to the job site and installed as larger units, minimizing the installation in the field.
1600 SS (Pre-glazed) Curtain Wall 
An expansion horizontal allows fully pre-glazed units (less pressure plates and covers) to be stacked on top of each other for a true unitized curtain wall option.
