Aluminium Curtain Wall CW 86

Application

Unitized curtain wall system that complies with all requirements for large building projects.

Can be constructed in two different ways: As mullion-transoms or as completely finished unitized systems

Description

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 facade can be built up element by element according to the modular curtain wall principle (CW 86-EF).


Features and benefits:

  • 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.
  • Dual colour available offering a different colour inside and out.
  • Ten-year systems guarantee provided as standard.
  • Corresponds to the BRE Global Green Guide online generic specification for curtain wall and achieves a summary rating of B or C.
  • CAD and BIM details available on request.


Can be constructed in two different ways:

  1. 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.
  2. 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 are fixed 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 three wind- and water-tight gaskets continuing in the corners.

Completely finished unitized system.

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 is fixed 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.
