Channel Glass System
Pilkington Profilit™ Hurricane
Pilkington Profilit™ OW (Low-Iron)
Think outside of the window frame: Pilkington Profilit allows you to incorporate soaring walls of glass for dramatic effect and
maximum natural daylight. Perfect for commercial and institutional applications, the Pilkington Profilit channel glass system
consists of unique, self-supporting cast-glass channels and an extruded aluminum perimeter frame. The glass can be installed
vertically or horizontally, in lengths up to 23 feet. It is available in a variety of beautiful colors and textures with varying
translucency (from deep waves to no visible texture and metallic choices), allowing for the passage of diffuse natural light without
the loss of privacy. Optional functional coatings can be applied to improve U-values and solar heat gain. For greater energy
efficiency, Lumira®aerogel insulation can be added.
TGP ProColor®high performance color coating is also available to enhance your design. It does not require tempering and is
bonded to the glass with remarkably high adhesion strength. The durable color coating is available in a wide array of opaque or
metallic colors with varying translucency.
Pilkington Profilit Hurricane is the only tested and approved
hurricane impact channel glazing system in North America, approved
by Miami-Dade County and the state of Florida. It can be used in
applications between ground level and 30 feet above ground level
with large missile impact resistant requirements. It is dual glazed
for exterior applications.
For a lower cost alternative for applications requiring impact-rated
glass in storm prone regions that are 30 feet or higher above
ground level, turn to Pilkington Profilit Hurricane LT. It is the only
tested and approved small missile impact resistant channel glass
system for use in North America.
Pilkington Profilit OW consists of an extruded perimeter
frame and self-supporting low-iron oxide cast glass
channels. The lower iron content allows for higher light
and solar transmission and a less green appearance
than is typical of standard glass. Pilkington Profilit OW
is available in a variety of textures and coatings, and
can be sandblasted for added privacy.
