Kawneer has published a new specification guide to its portfolio of architectural aluminium glazing systems.
The guide is presented as 380 individual and easily updated pages within a ring binder that is then housed within a slip case to give it additional presence and longevity on architects’ library shelves, Kawneer says.
The guide details Kawneer’s portfolio of traditional “stick” and unitised curtain walling systems, door and window systems, door and window sliding systems, framing systems, Brise Soleil, and blast enhanced and fire resistant systems.
It also features “well-illustrated” sections on design consideration prompters such as ventilation and windload requirements, building movement, acoustic and thermal performance, DDA compliance, interfaces and finishings.
This focus is also extended to sustainability, product materials and finishes, installation, fabrication and site work, services and support, and maintenance and cleaning. The guide also features a glossary of terms.www.kawneer.co.uk
