Curtain Walling Systems
At AluK we understand the integral role curtain wall plays in façade design, from absorbing building sway and resisting wind to dictating thermal efficiency and controlling light. It’s why our systems have been specified and installed in many of the world’s most prestigious buildings.
Case Study - Torfaen Learning Zone
The £24m Torfaen Learning Zone in Cwmbran is a showcase for AluK’s SL52 capped, mullion drained curtain walling system, complete with punched open-in windows in the thermally efficient AluK 77IWE casement system.Procured within the SEWSCAP 2 Framework, Torfaen Learning Zone has been developed by Interserve on behalf of Coleg Gwent and Torfaen Council. It features four-storeys of study and training facilities, including extendable classrooms with moveable walls, two atriums, performance and social spaces and an enclosed roof garden.AluK’s specification team worked directly with Torfaen Council’s architects to review the system options on the project and produce the specification clauses and structural analysis of the profiles required ahead of the tender. They also provided the thermal calculations required to demonstrate that the SL52 and 77IWE systems could meet the project design and the 1.4Wm2K thermal performance requirements
The C70S is engineered to the highest UK standards to deliver a high performance solution with impressively narrow profiles. Meeting and exceeding the key thermal, acoustic and performance demands of the architects and specifiers, the C70S is the perfect, aluminium solution for the education and light commercial markets.
