The Complete Answer to Curtain Walling

 

 

SMR800 curtain wall is a medium to high rise system with increased weather and thermal performance. It is a zone drained stick system featuring hollow box construction mullions and transoms. SMR800 is tested to CWCT and the latest European standards. Its mullions and transoms are hollow box construction. The mullions are designed to run through for optimum strength and the transoms are easily front loaded on site using a unique jointing method.

 

 

SMR900 curtain wall is a medium to high rise system. It is a zone drained stick system that has been designed to achieve high weather and thermal performance. SMR900 is tested to CWCT and the latest European standards. The SMR900 Curtain Wall system is capable of carrying glazing up to 36mm and can also accept window and door inserts from the SPW300 and SPW600 range. For aesthetics, the SMRF Frameless top hung vents can also be used as a top hung window insert.

 

 

Finishes

Aluminium profiles are normally supplied coated using the powder coat method, in a wide range of colours and surface finishes, to BS EN 12206: 2004 Part 1.

 

Aluminium can also be clear anodised in either satin or polished finish and a limited range of colours, which includes bronze and black, is also available. Anodising: i) Natural (Silver) anodised to BS3897, 1991. and ii) Anolok Bronze Colour 547 anodised to BS3897, 1991. Anodising is to a minimum of 25 microns (AA25).

Commercial and retail applications, transport terminals, health service buildings and educational establishments are just a few examples of the markets in which our system range excels.

 

 

SCW curtain wall is a semi-unitised, zone drained system capable of spanning low to high, dependent on the manner of installation. Its mullions and transoms are of a channel and plate construction allowing it to be fabricated into ladders for quicker assembly on site. Weather tested to BS6375, with a range of mullion sizes and reinforcing sections available to allow for greater spans as required.. It can also accept window and door inserts from the SPW300 and SPW600 range. Glazing from 10mm single glazing to 28mm double glazed can be used.

 

 

SCW+ curtain wall is a semi-unitised, zone drained system, again capable of spanning low to high, dependent on the manner of installation. It is similar to SCW but has been designed to achieve even greater weather and thermal performance. SCW+ is tested to CWCT and the latest European standards. Glazing from 10mm single glazing to 36mm double glazed can be used.

 

 

Construction

Assembly uses stainless steel self-tapping screws into integral screw ports extruded into the body of the sections, directly through square cut adjoining component parts. A proprietary sealant to protect against water entry should always be used on all metal-to-metal and gaskets to gaskets joints during assembly.

 

Vertical sections are designed to run through which enables individual panels to be made separately and ease the problems associated with handling or transporting large, or multi panel, frames when fully assembled.Optional shear blocks are available for joint and sectional re-inforcing or expansion joints and larger spans, over 1200mm.

 

Glazing

Each pane of glass is individually inserted into a fully rebated and prepared opening. Gasket or foam tape seals to the inside create a bond between the glass and the main structure. Glass is retained in position by pressure plates screwed into extruded screw ports in the face of the main sections. Cover caps conceal the fixings screws for an aesthetic exterior appearance.
