NEW UNITISED CURTAIN WALLING LAUNCHED BY KAWNEER
 

Glazing systems specialist Kawneer expands its curtain wall portfolio.

 

Leading UK architectural aluminium systems supplier Kawneer has enhanced its curtain wall portfolio with the launch of a fast-track dry-glazed unitised system.

 

 

An alternative to the AA®201 structurally-glazed modular system, the AA®265 incorporates a three-chamber system and overlapping gasket design for optimum weather tightness.

 

Its dry-glazed assembly gives the building team a unique set of benefits including factory fabrication to ensure additional quality control and rapid on-site installation, with a team of five capable of installing up to 250m2 of the AA®265 system in a single day.

 

In addition, if access during installation is limited, the AA®265 system can be installed under restrictive working conditions, with the building remaining occupied.

 

The optimum weathering is achieved by zone-drained pressure equalisation, with the glazing providing a positive weather seal for high performance. The system also features an exclusive high-performance thermal break.

 

Its slim 65mm sightlines, picture-frame style capping, integral vent option and dual-finish gives specifiers a wide choice of options to create individual and exciting building facades as the AA®265 can accommodate spandrel infill panels of glass, stone and metal up to 50mm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adaptable to any new construction project from two storeys upwards, the AA®265 system has been exclusively designed and developed by Kawneer, with installation contracts undertaken in collaboration with its network of authorised installers.

 

The AA®265 has also been tested and certified to CWCT (Centre for Window and Cladding Technology) Sequence B 2006 curtain wall standard.

 

As well as the company’s existing AA®201 unitised system which accommodates infill panels up to 32mm and has 64mm sightlines, Kawneer is also able to offer a range of stick curtain walling systems including the AA®100 and AA®110 systems with 50mm and 65mm sightlines respectively. The AA®100 system is also available in a fire-rated version.
