Pilkington Profilit


Channel Glass System

Pilkington Profilit™

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.
