Kawneer IR501 UT

Kawneer Co. Inc., an Alcoa business, has introduced the IR501 UT (Ultra Thermal) framing system in response to the increasing demand for energy efficiency in the construction industry. Designed and engineered for single span storefronts, the IR 501UT framing system is an enhancement to the company's versatile and tested IR500/501 platform, providing a single source solution to the growing need for hurricane resistant products on the East and Gulf Coast states. Kawneer uses a dual thermal break with an impact resistant product to achieve enhanced thermal performance.
