The process of unitizing includes the theory that any products that we produce at FenWall, can and should be fabricated to the fullest extent possible within a factory environment, in a format that allows for the simplest and least amount of fieldwork required to complete the installation. Over the years, FenWall Engineers have design systems that provide new and clever means and methods to minimize installation time and cost.
Our mindset that nearly any product can be unitized to an extent, has influenced and in some cases dictated the designs of our curtain walls, sun-control, roof screens, rails systems and more. As an example, FenWall manufactures curtain wall and storefront systems that are “unitized” or produced in “panels” that are pre-engineered, pre-fabricated, pre-assembled and pre-glazed at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. The process of “unitizing” allows FenWall the ability to offer its clients an alternate, innovative way to dramatically decrease on-site field time, dry-in time, labor hours and cost. As a result, the quality of joinery and sealing (caulking) are increased to an optimum level, thus providing a water-tight system.
As a second example, FenWall manufactures patio rail systems that Install quickly and easily without the need for cutting or welding in the field. End, middle and corner posts are shipped pre-manufactured with top caps, bottom base plates, and panel clips. Various styles of infill panels (Picket, wire, perforated ETC) are in stock, ready to ship, and clip to posts in minutes to create the rail of your choice.
