Westcrowns Inc. Provides Pilkington Profilit™ System for U.S. Installations

Westcrowns Inc. of Ocean Isle, N.C., has announced that it has provided Pilkington's Profilit channel glass system for more than 150 installations in the United States.

Profilit is a structural glass system that creates light transmitting walls. It incorporates an engineered perimeter frame, combined with various widths and sizes of U-shaped glass channels.

Typical U-channel glass is 10.3 inches wide with 2.5-inch returns. The channels are interlocked to form double-glazed units. The complete glazing assembly comes in an aluminum perimeter frame, so no intermediate aluminum-framing members are necessary to provide structural integrity.

Profilit can be tempered in the United States in accordance with ANSI standards.
