YKK AP America Inc. has introduced the YHS 50 FS/FI impact-resistant and blast mitigation storefront system to the ProTek product line. The YHS 50 FS/FI offers architects a storefront solution for installations that normally would require curtain wall. A key benefit of the YHS 50 FS/FI storefront is that it is inside-glazed, allowing architects to specify a storefront in areas that would typically be restricted due to glazing requirements, including muddy jobsites or upper floors of a building.

Additionally, the YHS 50 FS/FI storefront provides a structurally sound exterior for hurricane-prone market segments, integrating tested and approved hinging and locking hardware into its entries. For projects where the design pressure is 50 pounds per square foot (PSF) or less, the YHS 50 FS/FI is engineered to reduce parts and pieces, lowering installation costs. When a project requires extended height and durability, the YHS 50 spans up to 12 feet and withstands pressure up to 90 PSF.

Capable of withstanding gusts at the Wind Zone 3-level, the storefront also offers protection against wind-borne debris in High Velocity Hurricane Zones. The YHS 50 FS/FI is certified in IBC and Florida Product Approval standards. It meets all coastal area energy codes with Low E insulating glass. Additionally, the YHS 50 FS/FI is now qualified for the faster missile speed of Missile Level E.

The 50 FS/FI also incorporates the unique YKK AP ThermaShade and Luminance Sun Control technologies, providing a thermal barrier and sun-control solution.
