Manufacturer of architectural glazing systems, Kawneer, has introduced a phase of enhancements to its AA100 curtain wall system, futureproofing its ability to meet the highest standards of thermal performance and weight capacity, it says.
The AA100 curtain wall system with 50mm sightlines provides a dry-jointed façade solution which creates “original and exciting” façades, Kawneer says.
Kawneer UK, which manufactures from a factory in Runcorn, Cheshire, says that it has drawn upon the experience of its sister companies in Europe to launch the new features which include CWCT (Centre for Window and Cladding Technology) certification.
Other new features include increasing the infill weight for zone-drained constructions from 350kg to 600kg, while the addition of a 36mm thermal break to the existing suite of 16mm, 20mm and 26mm provides “even greater” thermal performance and increases the glazing depth to allow up to 50mm triple-glazed units, Kawneer explains. The system has also been accredited to the standards of the Passivhaus Institute.www.kawneer.co.uk
