Formacore Curtain Wall Edge Closeouts

Panels may often require edge closeouts when used as assembly components or as part of a larger project.
Edge closeouts offer a variety of advantages including:

  1. Seal panels against water or chemicals vapors
  2. Provides a connection point for special hardware including hinges or cam locks
  3. Provides a structural tie to adjoining or supporting structural members
  4. Allows panels to be joined at angles or flat edgewise
  5. Clean, aesthetic appearance

There are two basic types of edge closeouts: internal and external. Internal closeouts are incorporated during panel fabrication while external closeouts are added after fabrication.
