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.
With Fleetwood’s Arche-Duct water evacuation system (SFD-E), the EDGE | f | easily handles high-rise water performance. The factory provides three drains (8” from each jamb and the center).
