T14650 Series Profile

T14650 Series storefront framing has the same design, assembly and accessories as center-glazed T14000 Series storefront framing, but with a 6-1/2-inch frame depth. The additional 2-inch depth on the interior side of the frame provides greater structural support, which allows for taller first floor openings and the ability to withstand increased windload. The deeper profile also gives the product a more distinctive appearance that is more like curtain wall framing.
