Comar 6EFT Capped Curtain Walling
Description

Comar 6EFT is an insulated curtain wall system, suitable for all heights on new and refurbishment projects, including glazed roofing applications. It has four forms of construction in one system:

  • Comar 6EFT Curtain Walling: Enables the construction of sheer high-rise as well as sloped and inclined facades. Thermally efficient with standardized 50 mm profiles; custom-made profiles are available on request.
  • Comar 6EFT 2 sided SG: Enables vertical or horizontal aluminium sightlines; the structurally glazed side is achieved with a 20 mm EPDM joint seal or silicone sealant. Both vertical and horizontal options use standard 50 mm profiles. The framed sides use standard 50 mm profiles. A bespoke finish can be achieved through using a variety of cover caps.
  • Comar 6EFT 4 sided SG: Creates a façade with no visible aluminium sight lines; the structurally glazed sides are achieved with a 20 mm EPDM joint seal or silicone sealant. (See separate product link).
  • Comar 6EFT Concealed Vent: Enables opening vents to be inserted into the facade with no additional sightlines. Vents can be side or top hung and are performance tested.

All the systems use the same basic profiles, which integrate fully.
