Pine Grove, PA December 23, 2009 — Solar Innovations, Inc., a custom manufacturer of residential and commercial greenhouses; conservatories; sunrooms; skylights; folding, tilting, sliding, and stacking glass doors, walls, windows, and screens; introduces a new vertical, sloped, and integrated wood framed glazing system.

The new Timber Wall wood curtain wall system from Solar Innovations® has been creatively designed to accommodate all design conditions, may they be vertical, sloped, or integrated vertical and sloped. Thermally-broken aluminum profiles and positive drainage principles make the Timber Wall a high performing green alternative when compared to traditional curtain wall systems.

Energy efficient and attractive, Solar Innovations, Inc. uses the durable and everlasting aluminum exterior to maintain the warmth and beauty of the wood interior. When compared to the traditional solid wood window walls, these wood curtain walls allow for greater spanning capability with the flexibility and strength of the glu-laminate wood.

Solar Innovations’® aluminum glazing system creates a low maintenance barrier to the elements. This is where the Timber Wall gains most of its uncompromised aesthetic design flexibility and thermal performance. The signature weep system of Solar Innovations® products allows moisture to run through the aluminum gutters, channeling water away from the curtain wall, effectively limiting any water leakage into the system.

Timber Walls are offered in three different widths: two inch wide wood with two inch wide aluminum profile, two and one half inch or three inch wide wood with two and one half inch aluminum profile, and three inch wide wood with three inch wide aluminum profile. The two inch (4′ x 8′ panel) and two and one half inch (5′ x 10′ panel) Timber Walls are both tested for hurricane applications; a system has been hurricane certified and a five by ten system is in the process of being certified.

Overlapping the horizontal profiles with the vertical profiles and creating an unobstructed flow from horizontal to vertical, yields a pressure equalized curtain wall system. Most of the structural support comes from the wood as it stiffens the entire system and carries the dead-load from the glazing.

Wood species available with Timber Walls are solid Mahogany or Spanish Cedar and glu-laminates of Southern Yellow Pine, Western Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, and Northern White Pine. Upon special request, additional wood species may be available. Aluminum exterior finishes for the Timber Wall are available in Solar Innovations’ seven standard colors of White, Bronze, Hartford Green, Black, Sandstone, Natural Clay, and Mill (unpainted) and two anodized colors of Dark Bronze Anodized and Clear Anodized. Custom Colors are available upon request.

Solar Innovations, Inc. wood curtain walls are the perfect solution for customers seeking a high performing, Green building system. Timber Walls may also be integrated with Solar Innovations’ conservatories, greenhouses, sunrooms, and additional products. Solar’s extensive line of operable windows and doors can be incorporated into the new Timber Wall with a matching wood interior veneer.
