Musée d’art de Joliette


Alumicor’s ThermaWall 2600 aluminum-framed, stick-built, thermally broken, curtainwall can achieve a total system U-factor of 1.8 W/m²•K (0.32 Btu/hr•ft²•°F) with triple-glazed IGUs and all non-metallic spacer. VitrerieNouvelle Vision installed ThermaWall 2600 on the Musée d’art de Joliette’s 2,900 m² (31,216 ft²) extension. The addition was designed by Les architects fabg and constructed by Groupe Gyeseer. The exterior’s translucent and transparent façade not only support operational energy-efficiency and interior comfort, but also allows for improved promotion of the permanent exhibits, as well as more space for temporary exhibits.
