    Why Aluminium?Kawneer has been producing advanced glazing solutions in this versatile material formany decades. Aluminium is a near-perfectmaterial for architectural glazing products, and has practical advantages over all otheravailable choices, including inherentresistance to corrosion and very low whole-life costs. Aluminium is also anenvironmentally friendly material and possiblyone of the best options for energy savingwithin the construction industry. In thebuilding sector vast amounts of aluminiumare collected for recycling, with rates as highas 92-98%, and more than 50% of the energyused in aluminium production comes fromhydro-electric schemes.

    201 Unitised Curtain Wall

    Our modular faade solution, AA201 UnitisedCurtain Wall, is a highly innovative conceptthat has already been proven on a number ofprojects in the UK and Ireland. Unitised curtainwalling is modular the individual units orpanels are assembled off site in factorycontrolled conditions and then transported tosite and craned onto the building. Thisdramatically reduces time on site, and thus thebuilding can be enclosed rapidly allowinghand-over to following trades to take placemuch sooner.

    and exciting faades. The system is availablein a variety of styles and is suitable for verticaland sloped applications including facettedwalls. To provide complete design flexibilitythe AA100 is also available as a HorizontallyCapped system, a Structurally Silicone Glazedsystem and a Fire Resistant system.

    The AA100 has a range of mullion, transomand facecap options, with 50mm sightlines.
