Tubelite introduces a new, thermal pressure plate for use on all of our curtainwall systems with a 2-1/2-inch sightline. This new thermal pressure plate employs the following features and benefits:

  • The same 8-inch-on-center screw spacing as on our standard aluminum pressure plates
  • With a comparable thickness as the aluminum pressure plates, the same fastener can be used with no flat washers required
  • IDs built into the face for location of weep holes for the system used
  • Standard isolators are used for our 400CW and 400T systems, and a continuous seal for our 400TU and 400SS systems in lieu of an isolator
  • The new, thermal pressure plate matches the strength of aluminum and exceeds that of our polyamide pressure plate, while offering comparable thermal performance at the same price point as polyamide
  • All of our standard 400 Series face covers are interchangeable with the new PTB120 pressure plate
