Project Spotlight

KAWNEER CO. | ProMedica Health and Wellness Center, Sylvania, Ohio


Innovation:
The design team behind the 230,000-square-foot ProMedica Health and Wellness Center, HKS Architects, tasked Kawneer with supplying a high-performing façade that would also increase natural light and views of the outdoors, thus contributing to occupant comfort, says Karen Zipfel, director of marketing, Kawneer. Kawneer collaborated with Toledo Mirror & Glass to create a high-performing façade for the project. 

Metal & Glass: The project features a range of framing systems, including Kawneer’s 1600UT system 1 curtain wall, 1600UT system 2 curtain wall, 190 narrow stile standard entrance, 350 medium stile standard entrance, Versoleil Sunshade with custom outrigger and blades, and Trifab 450 door headers. The glass is Solarban 72 and Starphire Ultra-Clear with triple silver, from Vitro Architectural Glass
