Eleven Brindleyplace featuring Reynaers CW50 and CW60 aluminium curtain walling systems

Eleven Brindleyplace featuring Reynaers CW50 and CW60 aluminium curtain walling systems

Reynaers Aluminium

This office building was designed as part of the long and large redevelopment saga; Brindleyplace. While the building is a truly modern statement, the anodised frames and fins to the glazing system are not simply powder coated but vary in colour; this gives them a warm and natural appearance, and so reflects the warmth of the brickwork of Brindleyplace’s Victorian buildings. The Reynaers systems used on the façades – a customised solution based on the curtain wall systems CW 50 and CW 60, and CS 68 doors in bronze anodized aluminium – form part of a bespoke curtain wall design.

Sainsbury’s Maidenhead featuring Reynaers CW 50-SC aluminium curtain walling system

Sainsbury’s Maidenhead featuring Reynaers CW 50-SC aluminium curtain walling system

Reynaers Aluminium

Maidenhead was a cliché of uninspired and unremarkable buildings until Sainsbury’s embarked on a major redevelopment scheme. The supermarket now forms the base of a major new building, with five floors of car parking which are embraced by an outer layer of flats. Reynaers’ CW 50-SC glazing follows the building’s curve and works without clumsy capping on the outside. The flats were fitted with Reynaers’ CS 68 system which was chosen for its high performance and good insulation values. The project shows the flexibility of a varied architectural approach to which Reynaers products can provide robust solutions.

The air curtain was specified for the installation by consulting engineers E&M Tecnica of Surrey.The two metre air curtain allows Esprit to leave their front doors invitingly open to passing trade whilst also maintaining a pleasant internal environment.

It has double low noise centrifugal inlet fans driven by an external rotor motor, which provides up to five speed selection.

The control panel has plug and play RJ45 leads and comes with 20m of telephonic cable so it can be mounted out of sight, in a different room or behind a desk.Heating can be supplied by either low pressure hot water, with outputs up to 29kW, or electric heating, with outputs up to 32kW.

JS Air Curtains

JS Air Curtains has supplied a bespoke Rund air curtain for the entrance to the offices of Cadbury in Birmingham. The 2m slate grey air curtain has a round design and is held horizontally above the reception door by matching slate grey supporting posts.The newly refurbished reception area was becoming cold from air ingress through its main doors. The air curtain was designed to tie-in with the architecture of the entrance and provides a barrier of warm air to create a pleasant and welcoming environment for staff and visitors to the office.Paul Dennick, Implementation Project Manager at Cadbury, comments, “After a major refurbishment of this part of the building, the reception area was suffering from cold air being sucked in through the main doors. We needed an air curtain that was independently mounted, as it could not be fixed to the fascia or ceiling of the reception. Since the air curtain from JS has been installed the cold air problem has been solved.”The Rund air curtain has many different mounting options. It can be suspended from a ceiling with cables or attached using arms to either the ceiling or wall. Alternatively it can be stood vertically at the side of a door or mounted horizontally on goal-post type legs, as it was at Cadbury.

JS Air Curtains has recently supplied two Rund air curtains to 1Rebel boutique gym in Victoria, London. Described as a “Ride studio like no other” the 1Rebel gym at Victoria fuses amazing sound systems and lighting with a full body bike workout.With two entrances into its reception, the building was suffering from a wind-tunnel effect and wanted to eliminate the draught to maintain a comfortable internal temperature for staff and customers. The nightclub-like gym needed an air curtain system to match its vibrant contemporary style.JS Air Curtains’ Rund air curtain was chosen by architects as its cylindrical design perfectly complements the industrialised and futuristic interior, and could be suspended with inverted goal-post like supports. The units were installed by mechanical contractors, TMI Mechanical Limited, who also provided the ceiling mounted suspension arms.Nina Shadi, General Manager and trainer at 1Rebel UK, commented, “Since the air curtains have been installed, we’ve noticed a considerable improvement in the internal environment. We no longer experience the draughts through our wide doorways and the temperature is much more pleasant.”The Rund air curtain has rounded casing that comes in white or silver as standard but can be supplied in any RAL colour or with a brushed stainless steel finish. It can be suspended horizontally above a doorway, as it is at 1Rebel, or vertically at the sides of an entrance. When mounted horizontally, it has many different suspension options, including goal post-like arms fitted to the floor, wall or ceiling.Low noise, centrifugal double inlet fans are driven by an external rotor motor. The powerful fans are capable of providing enough airflow to create an effective seal across doorways up to 4.2m high or 8.4m wide, when mounted vertically at each side.The 1Rebel gym at Victoria is part of the 1Rebel group which has six locations across London. It offers three pay-per-session fitness concepts of either Reshape (treadmill and weights), Ride (bike / nightclub experience) or Rumble (high intensity boxing training).

Merchant Square, Wellington Place, Belfast

Aluprof UK

Merchant Square was the largest Grade A office development ever to be undertaken in Belfast at the time of completion. Aluprof systems were used to help transform an existing office block with a completely new building envelope. The building has been entirely let to PwC and is their biggest office space outside of London with 3,000 employees.The external envelope was completed using Aluprof's MB-SE75 unitised curtain wall facade system and was then specified in an anodised finish, which then contrasts with the external Corten steel used in a vertical column emphasis to meet the architects design. With the rise in use of unitised curtain wall systems for medium sized projects, this option is becoming a real alternative to a traditional curtain wall solution, especially as costs are becoming more competitive. Unitised systems can also offer up to a 50% reduction in installation periods which can offer significant savings on the project programme.

Technal

The Silverstone Interactive Museum is a 600m­² motorsport exhibition located at the world famous Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire. The £22 million building, built with a contribution from the National Lottery Heritage Fund consists of a fully refurbished WWII aircraft hangar and a new two-storey extension which serves as the entrance to the exhibition. The TECHNAL curtain walling was a key part of the design and enabled large spans of glass to the front and rear of the building. This provides contrast to the iridescent finish and rainscreen cladding. This curtain wall system enabled large panel sizes of up to 2.8m high and 2m wide without additional steelwork that would have detracted from the intended design and added to the cost. The exposed location meant that airtightness and thermal efficiency were also design considerations. Our curtain walling features a thermally broken construction and high levels of wind and weather resistance. Due to the nature of the building and location close to the circuit, the goal with the acoustic requirements was to achieve a balance of reducing the sound from the track without completely eliminating it. This was achieved with TECHNAL systems using standard double glazing without the need for acoustic glass.
