The aluminum curtain walls add aesthetic value to the architecture, especially in the case of large buildings (company headquarters, institutions, shopping centers, banks, etc.), also offering a number of practical benefits. Curtain wall structures give a modern appearance, increased strength and large glazed surfaces. For constructions with special safety requirements, fire-resistant aluminium joinery can be supplied, corresponding to the EI resistance classes of 30-120 minutes. The quality of the glass is also emphasized by the higher degree of transmission of natural light from the outside, which eliminates the need for artificial lighting in the rooms located in the central area of tall buildings. The flexible system of curtain walls also allows for the implementation of more complex structures: roofs, domes, pyramids, etc.
Glass and aluminium awnings are spectacular architectural elements that represent an ingenious solution to protect the access routes. In addition to their aesthetic role, they facilitate the penetration of natural light, giving the interior space a special charm. In the production process, tempered and laminated glass is used, which guarantees increased safety. To eliminate the greenhouse effect, you can opt for solar control glass.
Depending on the location of the entrance, the awnings can be supplemented with side panels of the same materials, forming a stable assembly called windfang. It defines a minimal, glazed space, which has the role of reducing wind access through a system of two access doors. Due to its benefits, such as optimal protection against temperature differences between the outside and the inside, wind and moisture, windfang is useful for residential projects, office buildings, business premises and even transport spaces or airport terminals.
Interior partitions are used to streamline the division of available space in a fast and simple way, especially in the case of business or office premises. Aluminium partition systems are a modern and elegant solution for defining spaces, being useful also when repartitioning an area, being easy to disassemble and detach according to the needs of the moment. An interior design with integral glass walls preserves the feeling of open-space, an essential feature of spaces where natural light is mainly used.
With variable heights, the interior partitions consist of two sheets of tempered glass ( 4 -10 mm thickness), mounted in aluminium perimeter profiles without a thermal barrier, provided with cable channels. For a touch of privacy, manually or electrically adjustable blinds can be mounted between glass sheets or opaque panels. A wide range of colors is available for the profiles and slats of the blinds, as well as a multitude of models for decorating the glass (clear, sandblasted with or without pattern, with self-adhesive film, etc.).
With applications in both residential and commercial areas, aluminium entrance doors are efficient and durable solutions. For exterior doors, it is recommended to have thermal bridge, three-chamber profiles: the outer and inner chambers are made of aluminium, the intermediate one being made of polyamide that eliminates the thermal conductivity of the metal. An important detail to take into account when exploiting natural light is the glazed surface: aluminium joinery supports the high weight of the glazed surface of the total carpentry surface, guaranteeing also burglary resistance.
In terms of material resistance to external factors, the carpentry behaves excellently, being easy to maintain, the effect of the sun rays being minimized. Exterior doors also have watertightness properties and are available in both single-leaf and double-leaf configuration. Due to the variety of spaces in which they can be used, the systems are optimized for heavy traffic and meet the requirements of large commercial projects, with hinges tested at one million open/closed cycles. For business premises entrance areas subject to intense use, it is recommended to accessorize doors with anti-panic bars.
Sliding door systems with aluminium profiles provide impeccable operation, smooth and silent gliding. The ergonomic design, due to the use of the opening space, is a strong selling point for them. All these advantages are highlighted by special aesthetics and features such as sound insulation, the possibility of automation, the different types of opening and burglary resistance. However, the major advantage lies in the energy savings generated by these modern systems, both in the hot season and in the winter, being ideal for large-scale construction.
The configuration possibilities of sliding systems vary depending on the available space and future needs: Sliding doors, lift-sliding doors, slide-swing doors with parallel opening and folding-sliding doors.
Aluminium has metal-specific strength, but due to its low weight, it has minimal impact on the strength of buildings. Aluminium joinery guarantees very good insulation and great resistance to the action of environmental factors. In addition, it offers the easiest maintenance of all types of carpentry. The profiles used to make aluminium joinery are of two types: profiles with thermal bridge (used especially on the outside due to the thermal and sound insulation properties) and profiles without thermal bridge (most often used indoors, but also for closing spaces where the temperature difference is not an important factor in choosing the constructive solution).
Thermal insulating windows increase the thermal performance of the joinery by reducing heat loss. They reduce the heat transfer rate by more than 50% compared to classic wood or PVC solutions. Aluminium systems solve the problem of increasing noise levels, protecting against external noise, while also providing sound insulation between rooms of the same enclosure. Unlike traditional systems, aluminium offers unlimited architectural possibilities, the profiles can be painted in a varied color palette: The painting is done in an electrostatic field, and the color does not deteriorate over time.
Aluminium joinery is the premium alternative to PVC joinery, adding more durability. Single chamber profiles made of aluminium have excellent indoor behaviour, and due to their low weight, they are especially suitable for large doors. It offers an enviable sound insulation, and the noise level can be reduced by up to 48% compared to normal doors. Aluminium doors can be adapted to the thickness of the walls and provide safety thanks to the seals against accidents. Moreover, they are extremely versatile, being suitable for office buildings, with large glass areas, institutions, high traffic shops, residential complexes, etc.
The system of windows, doors and fireproof walls with thermal insulation helps execute the exterior walls equipped with open windows, but also the fixed doors and walls of the main fire resistance classes EI30, EW30, EI15, according to PN-EN 13501-2. It combines the advantages of the classic window and door system with the properties of fire-resistant partitions in the sphere of thermal, utility, strength and production technology parameters. Its construction meets all the requirements of the provisions and regulations in force, especially in terms of energy efficiency and environmental protection, while ensuring proper fire safety.
The alucobond plate is a composite panel used on the facades of buildings, guaranteeing the durable quality of the construction and the highest creative standards. The plates have important waterproofing characteristics, consisting of aluminium and a fireproof core. The facade material is distinguished by its outstanding attributes such as precise flatness, variety of surfaces and colors, as well as excellent malleability. Long lifespan, easy maintenance and the combination of insulation, ventilation and moisture control, as well as its aesthetic qualities, make the alucobond plates the ideal choice to achieve exceptional architectural projects.
