SCW Curtain Wall System

Application

Suitable for low and midrise commercial buildings.

Description

Senior Architectural Systems curtain walls have been developed to offer proven, cost effective solutions to large glazed areas in low and mid-rise buildings. With a 50 mm wide face dimension, the systems offer a range of mullion depths to cater for differing structural conditions and the option of single or double glazing for improved thermal and acoustic performance.


Features and benefits:

  • Offers flexibility in specification and can be single or double glazed.
  • A range of mullion depths cater for differing structural conditions, with complementary sections for sloped glazing.
  • The system is dry glazed using to provide compressed seals for optimum performance.
  • A range of external caps to vary the finished appearance are available.
  • Framing member spacing: Maximum width: 2400 mm. Maximum height to suit conditions.
  • Standard drawings can be provided as hard copy or CD ROM.
  • Design, installation and glazing service is available through a nationwide network of installers.


Construction:

The SCW system uses a box and plate format for factory frame assembly. Mechanical fixing of square cut adjoining components at butt joints uses stainless steel or plated self-tapping screws into integral screw ports extruded into the body of the sections. Vertical framing sections are designed to run through, enabling individual panel fabrication, easing the problems associated with handling and transporting large or multi-panel frames when fully assembled.
