Application

Suitable for high-rise buildings.

Description

Curtain walling 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.


Features and benefits:

  • All windows/ screens, in conjunction with a suitable glazing specification, have been designed to meet the current requirements of Building Regulations.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • All glazed curtain walling screens, windows, and doors within the ground floor and vulnerable areas are secure by design.
  • All systems installed are tested in line with PAS24 security standards and certified by a UKAS accredited certification body.
  • Stick system, pressure equalized and drained. The system is thermally broken throughout by means of a continuous thermal isolator located between the external pressure plates and internal framing members.
  • Dry glazed using proprietary, high performance captive gaskets. All gaskets are bonded and sealed during construction, using waterproof adhesive. All internal gaskets have pre-moulded vulcanized corners.
