Engineered for High Performance
Island prides itself on providing facade systems that meet or exceed today's stringent building energy codes. The key to this is Island’s proprietary panelized approach to building envelopes. We utilize a robust, yet flexible framing structure coupled with a dynamic hanging system to accommodate project specific variations in building performance, construction requirements, and design demand. All of Island's facade panel solutions comprise of:
A fully engineered steel frame that can integrate hot and cold rolled shapes, as well as aluminum framing members if needed. The frame is the "backbone" of the system and it is the engineering of this precision fabricated frame that allows Island Exterior Fabricators to build a "megapanel" frame.
Continuous Insulation occurs fully outboard of the air vapor barrier to greatly enhance energy performance requirements. This allows for more control over dew point management within your wall section.
Integrated project specific glazing (provided either by third party manufacturer or developed in-house), allowing the fenestration to be "factory installed and sealed" in a controlled environmen
Dry Set Gasket Interface
Fully dry set gasket type interfaces, eliminating the need for maintenance of heavy wet seals at panel to panel interfaces, and more importantly providing a watertight enclosure as each individual floor is enclosed. The gasket system is a "double piston" mated stack assembly with a pressure equalized gutter for moisture evacuation.
