EFCO Introduces Versatile Ribbon Wall System

New 600R System Provides Economical Solution for Architects and Glaziers

MONETT, MO--(Marketwired - December 19, 2014) - With the introduction of the economical and versatile 600R Ribbon Wall System, EFCO expands its family of pre-glazed products, providing even more flexible design solutions for architects and glaziers.

Best suited for low- to mid-rise hospitality, office and multifamily residential buildings, the 600R system can be used in both curtain wall and storefront applications. This design flexibility provides the option to utilize one system in multiple areas throughout a building, depending on the design needs of the project.

"The 600R is essentially a hybrid between a storefront and curtain wall system," says Richard Paulsen, Storefront Product Manager for EFCO. "It can be used in any storefront application, as well as in any smaller curtain wall application because of our ability to glaze it similar to a curtain wall system."

With options in sunshade mullions and slab edge covers, plus vent and entrance integration similar to that of a curtain wall, the 600R ribbon wall is customizable to meet specific project needs. The factory or in-shop pre-glazed option also provides a quality, economical solution for architects and glaziers, allowing them to save on labor costs and time associated with on-site glazing.

Additional features of the 600R ribbon wall system include:

  • Capable of 5' x 12' modules standard, custom options available
  • Inside glazed captured and SSG options available
  • Snap-together screw spline and shearblock fabrication methods available
  • Vertical through and continuous head/sill construction methods
  • Customizable for project specific slab covers and pre-glazable mullions
  • Removable face cover for curtain wall aesthetics and dual finish capabilities
  • Thermal simulation achieved .40 U-Factor with .24 COG

Other products belonging to EFCO's family of pre-glazed options, include:

  • XTherm® System 8750XD Unitized Curtain Wall
  • EFCO® 8700 Unitized Curtain Wall System
  • EFCO® 8800 Unitized Curtain Wall System
