Comar 6 Capped Curtain Walling
Description

Comar 6 is an insulated curtain wall system, suitable for all heights on new and refurbishment projects, including glazed roofing applications. It has two forms of construction: ladder frame and stick. The transoms can be square or step cut providing a true mullion drained system.

Glass can be mirrored, tinted or opaque to provide the façade with feature and distinction. To allow panels and glass to be incorporated into the same curtain wall without the need to step-cut, Comar have specifically designed a range of gaskets and pressure plates to provide insert options from 2–50 mm.

Construction (Product reference):

– Ladder Frame System:

An insulated curtain wall system, designed for use in low to medium rise new build or refurbishment projects, with both single and double glazed options available. The frame is insulated by a thermal barrier in the pressure plate glazing.

A selection of face caps gives many finish options and the system is suitable for inclined facades and roof glazing applications. The system is constructed and supplied in frame format, horizontals are jointed to verticals by stainless steel self-tapping screws into integral receptacles.

– Stick System:

An insulated curtain wall system, suitable for all heights, new and refurbished projects, including glazed roofing applications. A thermal isolator provides a barrier between the external cap and the internal framing members, and an internal pressure equalised drainage system provides drainage to the exterior. Special profiles are available ex-stock for facetted facades and glazed roof applications, and various designed cover caps are available; a transom cover cap with integral drip prevents water staining.

Incorporated components:

The Comar 6 system can be used in conjunction with Comar 5 system window types and Comar 7 aluminium doors.

Performance:
