Providing sound solutions to glazing applications using our proven systems is a fundamental practice at SOTA Glazing Inc. Our strength however, is the ability to provide clients with custom curtain wall systems that mirror the intent of a design proposal, rather than define a design by the specification of an existing system. Aesthetic and performance requirements are carefully considered at every step of our internal design process.
The corporate culture at SOTA encourages free communication between designers, fabrication, assemblers and installers alike and all have been trained to accept only the highest standard of quality in their work. And because we facilitate the design and production of our systems from start to finish, we have complete control over the quality assurance of our products. Our strict design principles and firm belief in our systems enable us to offer performance warranties second to none in the industry.
thermo 3 series
With increasing demand for energy efficient buildings, SOTA is acutely aware of the important role building envelopes play in thermal performance. We strive to provide thermally efficient designs without compromise in aesthetics or cost competitiveness.
SOTA uses 'Therm 5.1' and related modeling software to evaluate the efficiency and compliance of our curtain wall systems to relative building codes, regulations and specifications.
In addition, we have our systems independently tested using physical "hot box" and thermal cycling to provide more accurate assessments. Most recently, we developed and tested an improved "THERMO-3 SERIES"; a thermally superior unitized curtain wall system that will become our standard.

Architectural Wall Systems Installation of SOTA Curtain Wall

HYBRID-WALL® was developed as an alternative to window wall systems. Window Wall systems are architecturally limited and lacking in long term performance. HYBRID-WALL® allows aesthetic flexibility by allowing for larger expanses of glazing, flush external appearance (capless) and a variety of features and infill materials. In addition, HYBRID-WALL® provides the exceptional weather and seismic performance of a pressure equalized, rain screened curtain wall.
HYBRID-WALL® is a 100% fully unitized and pre-glazed curtain wall system in performance and appearance with the important distinction being that it installs between floors similar to a window wall system. HYBRID-WALL® is notched around the floor slab and allows the use of glass floor spandrels in lieu of slab edge metal panel covers. Because it is a true unitized curtain wall system, HYBRID-WALL® uses a horizontal expansion assembly incorporating silicone gaskets, making the typical sealant joints between floor slabs and window wall systems obsolete. HYBRID-WALL® also has fully integrated fixed and sliding anchors as part of the slab edge design, enabling ease of installation while allowing for construction slab tolerances and vertical live load movements between floor levels.
HYBRID-WALL® is a registered trademark of Sota Glazing Inc. in the U.S. and Canada.
