marlin system 60 curtain wall


Convention Center Expansion - Spokane, WA


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 achieved.

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.

System 60 offers optional components to accommodate low profile vents, concealed vents, concealed butt-glaze vents, entrance doors, vestibule framing, interior partitions and sunshades.
