Marlin System 60 curtain wall combines the high performance of pressure wall design with high span capabilities. By utilizing a PVC thermal separator to eliminate direct contact between interior and exterior aluminum sections, excellent thermal performance is also achieved.

System 60 framing members are 2 1/2" wide with an overall frame depth of 5 3/4", 7 3/8", or 10". Steel reinforcing is available to fit into the rectangular mullion when extra strength is required. Horizontal members are attached to the vertical with shear anchor clips.

Glass to the front design accepts 1" glazing with provisions for 1/4" by use of an adaptor. Glass is held firmly in place by screw applied pressure plates. Snap on cover plates leave a clean exterior appearance.

System 60 offers optional components to accommodate entrance doors, vestibule framing and interior partitions and various exterior caps.
