A vertical curtain walling glazing system comprising a light carrier framework into which fixed lights, vents and doors can be installed.
Suitable for commercial applications.
The Kestrel Low Rise Curtain Wall system is an economic and aesthetically pleasing solution to facade cladding. The system is suitable for use on all buildings where good thermal and weather performance is required.
The range of profiles is based around 50 mm, 75 mm, 100 mm, 125 mm, 150 mm and 175 mm mullion and transom designs accompanied by purpose-designed ancillary items required of a high-performance curtain wall system.
The system is designed for pressure equalised zone drainage and this is achieved with drained and ventilated glazing rebates. The glass or panel and window infills are retained with rigid PVC pressure plates which have co-extruded weather seals. Inner seals are available in lineal form and vulcanised pre-formed corner pieces.
Construction: Aluminium profiles are square cut mechanically jointed and secured using stainless steel screws driven into extruded screw splines. All joints should be sealed against water penetration.
