The YWW 50 TU thermally broken window wall system offers clean design, fast installation, and maximum versatility, making it a competitive alternative to curtain wall for mid-to-high-rise building applications.

With higher thermal performance and the ability to handle heavy design loads for oversized panels of glass, this product is a flexible window wall product that spans from floor to floor and is able to adapt to innovative architectural designs, like that of a continuously changing radius. This product is also available in a six-inch version – the YWW 60 TU – rounding out the line of versatile wall solutions for mixed-use buildings.

A unique slab-edge cover offers a clean look for modern designs, and structural silicone glazing is an option for a slimmer sightline. The glass pane is set to the front to maximize thermal performance, which is also enhanced by YKK AP’s patented MegaTherm® thermal break technology, providing dual finish capability. Both can be stick-built or shop-glazed in a controlled environment for quick installation.
