For medium to high rise projects, our Curtain Walling system has been developed as a structurally sound system to span glazing on a number of levels. It comprises a solid box mullion and transom construction which can be sleeved for reinforcement or connections. Continuous thermal isolator provides a thermal break between the internal structure and external structurally bonded finish. Numerous internal profile depths are available. It is compatible with APS window and door systems for a complete façade package.
It can house APS SGV Structurally Glazed Vent - a 'frameless' vent with stepped units to give a flush uninterrupted glass facade. This gives clean external sight lines complete with multi point locking and a robust top mounted lockable handle. Weather tested to BS6375 Part 1 & Part 3.
The curtain walling has undergone the rigorous ‘Dynamic’ test to CWCT standards and achieved
- Static Air Permeability 1.5m³/hr/m³ at 600 Pa
- Water Tightness 600 Pa Pass
- Static Water Penetration - Zero ml at 600 Pa
- Dynamic Water Penetration - Zero ml at 600 Pa
- Structural Performance - 2400 Pa
- Safety Gust Performance - 3600Pa
- Hose Pipe Water Test 22L/ 220k Pa
- Wind Pressure To Be In Accordance With BSG399 PT2
Materials & Finishes
Aluminium alloy 6063 T5 + T6. Polyester powder coated finish to BS6496 thickness 60. There are over 400 RAL or BS colours in gloss, satin or matt finish. Dual colour option easily is also achievable
Mullion, transom, toggle and clamps. Transoms are square cut and milled to a stepped profile. Transoms are directly fixed to mullions with stainless steel screws and bespoke transom brackets. Drainage is achieved by the stepped profile. Glass is secured into position with our clamps fixed with stainless steel screws along the mullions and transoms. Clamp are insert into our unique modelled pockets, which are fabricated into the glass units by the glass manufacture.
High Rise curtain walling can accommodate glazing panels from 28mm to 36mm thickness. Dry glazed using high performance captive gaskets located in special grooves within the sections. Moulded toggle pocket inserts. Glazing support blocks aid drainage and ventilation. The structural silicone jointed to create the glass to glass finish with extreme weather resistance
