      AA®110 65mm Curtain Wall System

      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. The system has been further developed to accommodate up to +/- 15mm differential vertical movement between the façade and the supporting sub-structure.

      Introduction
      Click here for further information on the AA®110 Large Movement Joint allowing increased Building Movement of up to +/- 15mm
      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 occurs at every mullion and transom connection in a zone drained system and at the base and above mullion joints in a mullion drained system. The system is available in a variety of mullion depths which combined with several 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. 

      Allowances for slab deflection of +/- 15mm can be achieved. Large glass panels can be used allowing 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 (up to 600kg)
      • The deflection limitations of the glazing system
      • The drainage method required; i.e. zone or mullion
      • Floor slab live load deflection

      Guidance on this element of the curtain wall design should be sought from the Kawneer Architectural Services Team.

      * For mullion centres greater than 3.5m contact the Technical Services Team at Runcorn.

      AA®110 HC/VC (Horizontal/Vertical Cap)
      The Horizontal/Vertical Cap provides the specifier the opportunity to highlight the horizontal or vertical features across the building envelope and gives the building its individual signature. 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.
