Aluminium & Metal Specialization

Glass curtain walls are lightweight aluminum-framed facades housing glass or metal panels. These glazing systems don’t support the weight of a roof or floor. Instead, gravity loads and wind resistance transfer from the surface to the building’s floor line. Curtain walls are often part of a building envelope or comprise one part of a wall system. Each glazing system requires careful integration with other adjacent structural elements such as wall claddings, roofs, and wall details. Curtain wall systems range from standard prefabricated systems to specialized custom wall units. Increased costs often come with additional customization and larger sizing.

Exterior glazing systems work well for low rise construction projects that allow for easy access to the exterior of the building. Larger high-rise construction projects may require interior glazing. This is due to the logistics of accessing and replacing multiple stories of glass. These systems often require scaffolding or booms to access the exterior of the curtain wall when repairing or replacing components. Some curtain wall systems may be glazed from either the interior or exterior of the building.

A framed partition wall system is a suitable solution for creating rooms, separating work areas (taking into consideration the requirements of offices), and for sectioning sales areas. The system consists of modules that are easy to install and later to demount or relocate, where necessary.

The profiles are manufactured from aluminum, which gives the wall sufficient rigidness and corrosion resistance. The surface of the profiles is finished with natural anodization or powder coated by the RAL color chart. Fixed modules can also be assembled with the help of ‘Slim’ profiles, which are narrower than standard side profiles and provide an even more airy feeling.

The modules can be filled with various filling materials with a maximum thickness of 10 mm. Glass panes are fixed in the modules with a special transparent silicon sealing, thanks to which the transition from glass to aluminum is invisible. Also, the bottom edge of the glass pane is filled with sealing, separating it from the aluminum and preventing the sealing from falling out.

A folding door is a door installation that is made up of hinged door leaves. The folding door opens and closes with the help of a track. The track makes sure that the whole opening is utilized, but still so that the whole side of the door does not take space from the opening, either from the side of the door or the front of the door.

Folding doors are used as room dividers in homes as well as in industrial and agricultural environments. In these spaces folding doors are mainly used in bedrooms, dining rooms, warehouses, storages, garages, and for example cow sheds. The door leaves can be folded either with end-, center- or side-folding systems. 

The folding door installation door material depends mostly on the assembly. Wooden framed glass doors are usually used in apartments and square-type steel tubing covered with steel sheets or cladding is often used in agricultural and industrial buildings. Folding doors can also be automatic, soundproof, and weatherproof which requires more from the door material and systems.
