New In SpecLink-E: The New Look of Thermal Doors
Entice® by CRL-U.S. Aluminum Merges All-Glass Aesthetics with Full-Frame Thermal Performance On display at AIA Conference on Architecture in booth 1163, Entice® is the first entrance system of its kind, offering all-glass aesthetics with full-frame performance. Featuring ultra-thin 1-⅛” vertical stiles and a 2-½” system depth, it provides one of the thinnest profiles in the industry while meeting code requirements for energy efficiency and thermal performance.
Entice® has the unique ability to support door handle hardware on 1” insulating glass panels using proprietary through-glass fittings. This gives door handles a distinctive floating-on-air appearance. The stiles have been designed with heavy-duty, thermally broken cladding that lets the system achieve U-factors as low as 0.33. It’s also NFRC rated and meets ASHRAE 90.1-2016 air infiltration requirements. With Entice®, architects no longer have to sacrifice aesthetics in place of performance.
