Unlike typical buried systems, the | f | offers tested performance.
Labeled Thermal Performance:
Though buried in the walls, thermal conductivity is still an issue. Site built systems ignore the science but the | f | has thermal barriers within each perimeter frame section. The EDGE | f | will be tested and NFRC labeled, and will offer Simulated Performance Alternatives.
The EDGE Fin is a cosmetic and performance option. Most systems ignore deflection or require field reinforcing. The Fin has a 1” sight-line and is the same depth as the EDGE | s |, making opposing wall installations consistent in appearance.
The EDGE | f | was tested for high-rise weather performance (air & water infiltration and wind exceeding 120 mph).
