      Product Features

      Introduction
      The AA®110 65mm curtain wall system is designed as a stick-frame assembly with weather performance achieved by drainage and ventilation of the glazing rebates. Drainage and ventilation is achieved via the mullion on mullion drained or via each individual transom on zone drained. The system is available in a variety of mullion depths which combined with seven thermal break options and aesthetic external capping provide flexibility of design, outstanding performance and ease of installation to suit individual project requirements.

      The AA®110 is suitable for vertical and sloped applications including faceted walls. A deeper glazing rebate meets the requirements for barrier loading and enables facades to stand up to high levels of building movement. This enables the use of bigger glass sheets resulting in more natural light penetration. In addition, less metal results in an aesthetically pleasing building – on the whole better for both the environment and the building occupier.

      The system has been exclusively designed, developed and supplied by Kawneer, with installation contracts carried out by approved Dealers.

      Curtain Wall Design Considerations
      Zone or Mullion Drained?

      Design Considerations
      A comprehensive range of mullions and transoms allow façades to be designed with minimal structural support. The selection of mullion is dependent on several
      factors:
      • The span (the distance between the fixings to supporting structure)
      • The mullion centres (up to 3.5m using AA®110 curtain walling)
      • Windload (up to 2400 Pa)
      • Maximum weight of infill is 600kg
      • The deflection limitations of the glazing system
      • The drainage method required; i.e. zone or mullion
      Guidance on this element of the curtain wall design should be sought from the Kawneer Architectural Services Team.

The variety of distinctive face caps gives total flexibility in design. The system has been exclusively designed, developed and supplied by Kawneer, with installation contracts carried out by approved Dealers.
