Product Specifications

Today's safety conscious and fast paced construction schedules demand high performance, fast installation, simplified fabrication, superior performance and design flexibility.  The AA®201 offers exactly that.
 
It offers the advantage of unitised assembly giving the building team a unique set of benefits.  These include factory fabrication to ensure additional quality control, rapid on site installation - a team of five can install up to 250m² of Kawneer's AA®201 unitised curtain walling in a single day, as well as slimline design and flexibility.  In addition limited access during installation is required, therefore a building can be refurbished, under restricted working conditions, with occupants still working in it.
 
Weathering is achieved by zone drained pressure equalisation.  The glazing provides a positive weather seal for high performance.  The system also features the exclusive, high performance IsoPort thermal break.
 
The AA®201 unitised system gives the specifier a wide choice of styles to create individual and exciting building facades.  The AA®201 can accommodate spandrel infill materials including glass, stone and metal panels.  It offers two sided or four sided structural silicone glazing, fully capped or horizontal caps giving a horizontal emphasis or a vertical cap option giving a vertical emphasis.
 
The AA®201 unitised curtain wall system is adaptable to any new construction project from two storeys upwards.  The system is ideal for fast track installation where safe methods of work are required.  The AA®201 has been exclusively designed, developed and supplied by Kawneer, with installation contracts undertaken in combination with authorised installing Kawneer contractors.
