Aluminium Curtain Wall CW 86


Curtain Wall 86 is a unitized curtain wall system that complies with all requirements for large building projects. CW 86 offers a special solution, where cassettes or elements can be pre-assembled in the workshop. On the building site, the cassettes can either be hooked on to a traditional stick structure (CW 86) or the façade can be built up element by element according to the modular curtain wall principle (CW 86-EF).

  • Pressure equalized and drained unitized curtain wall.
  • Available in beaded or silicone glazed options.
  • Internal and external visible width of 86 mm.
  • Infills include vision and spandrel panels, and outward opening windows and doors.
  • Concealed casement options for open out configurations.
  • Drained and ventilated glazing with EPDM synthetic rubber gaskets.
  • Choose from a full range of polyester powder coat colours and anodized finishes.

CW 86 curtain wall:

A CW 86 curtain wall can be constructed in two different ways:

  • As mullion-transoms - Assembly on the building site of suspension profiles and transoms by means of T-brackets. Transoms are assembled in the same level as the vertical suspension profiles by means of T- or L-shaped connection pieces. Sealing of mullion-transom connections is done with elastic silicones. Filling elements are assembled on the building site.
  • As completely finished unitized systems - The assembly of suspension profiles and transoms into a frame is done in the workshop. This frame is called 'main frame'. On this main frame we fix filling elements. This frame is called 'glass frame'. The assembly of glass frames on the main frame can be done in the workshop or on the building site. As a special application, it is also possible to assemble fixed filling elements directly in the main frame. The inner and outer aspect of this adjusted main frame is identical, except for the seal gasket of the glass frames. Finally the different main frames are connected by means of 3 wind- and watertight gaskets continuing in the corners.
