  • Beautiful glue-laminated Douglas fir interiors with extruded aluminum exteriors in 70 powder coated colors make a distinctive upgrade over ordinary storefront glazing & aluminum curtain walls.
  • Choose from two sophisticated glazing systems, ViewMax and ViewMax Plus, to achieve up to a DP70 rating.
  • Tested to ASTM standards for air and water infiltration and structural windload performance.
  • Architectural wall systems are featured in hundreds of commercial and residential installations across the US, Canada, and Japan.

Beautiful Wood Beams

Glazing Systems

We offer two sophisticated glazing systems.

ViewMax Glazing System

ViewMax is our glazing system for residential applications. It can be produced for vertical or sloped glazing in several styles, and may be structural to carry vertical loads of the building. It's available with multiple glazing options that meet a .24 U-factor or better, and has earned a DP 50 rating.

  • Vertical or sloped glazing.
  • DP 50 rating.
  • Primarily used in residential applications.
  • Incorporates windows, doors, structural corner units.
  • All-wood interior.

ViewMax Plus Glazing System

ViewMax Plus is an advanced pressure equalized glazing system. It equalizes air pressure between the window interior and exterior thanks to individual, isolated glazing chambers with independent weep systems.

With its sophisticated design and detailing, ViewMax Plus prevents water from being pushed or pulled into the building via the vacuum effect that can happen with other systems.

ViewMax Plus products include wood curtain wall, structural wood window walls, and load bearing window walls. They are available with multiple glazing options, achieving U-factors as low as .21.

With a DP 70 rating, ViewMax Plus is ideal for commercial or residential use.

  • All-wood interior.
  • DP 70 rating.
  • Pressure equalized glazing system.
  • Incorporates windows, doors, structural corner units.
  • Commercial or residential applications.

Operable Windows & Doors

A comprehensive range of Sierra Pacific windows, patio doors, and specialty doors can be easily integrated into our architectural wall systems, presenting a stunning combination of innovative wall designs with all-wood interiors.

Specialty products for especially stunning walls

One of the more distinctive design choices involves incorporating one or more of our specialty products. We offer wood interior multi-slide, lift & slide, and bi-fold doors and windows for dramatically expansive openings. You can choose models that slide completely out of sight into a wall pocket, stack against the wall or open up an entire corner.

Choose from 75 finishes in seven design collections with custom color matching available and powder coating technology that leads the industry in color retention, durability and environmental safety.
