System 17 High-Rise Curtain Walling
Description

System 17 High-Rise Curtain Walling has been developed for high-rise applications. It is suitable for installation continuously over the full height of any building, subject to the structural sections being designed to accommodate the applicable loads in accordance with the relevant site conditions and application.

Performance:

– Thermal:

  • All windows/ screens, in conjunction with a suitable glazing specification, have been designed to meet the current requirements of Building Regulations Approved Document L for England and Wales, Technical Handbook 6 for Scotland and Technical Booklet F for Northern Ireland where applicable. Consult with Metal Technology for details.

– Weathertightness: To BS 6375-1: 1989 and BS 5368.

  • Air permeability: 600 Pa.
  • Water resistance: 600 Pa.
  • Wind resistance: 2400 Pa.

– Dynamic Test: In accordance with the CWCT sequence B test regime using a representative two storey test sample.

  • Static Air Permeability: <1.5 m³/hr at 600 Pa.
  • Static Water Penetration: Zero ml at 600 Pa.
  • Dynamic Water penetration: Zero ml at 600 Pa.
  • Structural performance - 2400 Pa (140 mph).
  • Safety Gust Performance - 3600 Pa (210 mph).

– Deflection:

  • All structural profiles can be designed so that maximum deflection of any member shall not exceed L/200 of its span, with no evidence of any permanent deformation once the load has been removed. All transom sections are designed to limit their horizontal deflection to a maximum of 3 mm.

Incorporated components:

The full range of Metal Technology Ltd’s windows and doors can be incorporated into the system. Consult with Metal Technology for recommendations and details.
