      Product Features

      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, including an enhanced thermal performance option, and aesthetic external capping allows a specifier the flexibility of design to make their own statement. The system has outstanding performance and its ease of installation makes it possible to suit individual project requirements.

      The AA®100 is suitable for vertical and sloped applications including faceted walls. 

      To provide complete design flexibility the AA®100 is also available as a Horizontally Capped system, a Vertically Capped system, a Structurally Silicone Glazed system and a Fire Resistant system.

      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 3.0m using AA®100 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

      Guidance on this element of the curtain wall design should be sought from the Kawneer Architectural Services Team.
      * For mullion centres greater than 3.0m contact the Technical Services Team at Runcorn.
