The Engineering Team
At Duo-Gard, we alert you to glazing, framing and design alternatives you may not even be aware of – alternatives that save money, enhance aesthetics and raise performance levels – all without compromising the integrity of your design. We want to ensure that you don’t pay for features you don’t need or want. That’s a good thing, right?
Current technology provides an amazing array of aesthetic and performance options. We continuously monitor and evaluate this technology on a global basis, working with the world’s top extruders. As the industry’s leading systems integrator, we have unlimited access to the exciting advances. You get the benefit of our review and recommendations, based specifically on your design. You tell us what you want and we tell you how we’ll achieve it. Take a look at our approach.
Duo-Gard’s proprietary framing systems are specially designed for polycarbonates – far different from glass – and include the entire spectrum of daylighting applications. Versatile edge frames. Interlocking for large, long expanses. Battens for self supporting flexibility. High-profile aesthetics with concealed fasteners. Continuous, flowing facades. Systems for exteriors, interiors and combinations. Double- glazed for exceptional energy efficiency. Structural Engineering: Once the critical decisions about glazing and framing are made, we custom design/build/engineer to your specific design, your specific climate’s wind and snow loads and any special structural requirements you have. Specifications: In addition to standard specifications, we’ll customize them for your design. We’ll also help you write the specs for your project. Sealed/Stamped Drawings: We can provide these for all 50 states.
You’ll receive a comprehensive package including tests, shop drawings and additional information required to secure approval. ADA Compliance: All Duo-Gard products can be engineered to meet for ADA compliance. We have many years of experience and strong knowledge of the requirements for this. Code/Permit Reviews: We work closely with you to ensure proper compliance for your project, including special structural calculations, drawings and information that may assist officials in their evaluations and approvals.
