The AA®100 SSG is a variant of our flagship AA®100 curtain wall system, which allows glazing of the curtain walling to be achieved without the use of conventional pressure plate and face caps, giving an aesthetically pleasing appearance with flush glazing to the exterior.
The grid construction replicates the AA®100 mullion drained system, so carries the same ease of installation. The flush external appearance is provided by specially manufactured insulated glazing units constructed with the use of structural silicone sealant and contain an integrated channel profile around the perimeter of the glazing cavity. Toggle clips positioned on the mullions and transoms locate into the channel profile to provide the mechanical retention to secure the pane to the curtain wall. The glazing unit is deadload supported by the transom using a combination of setting blocks and glass supports, additionally the final aesthetics of the façade is enhanced by use of a flush seal between the glass units by means of a UV resistant weatherproofing silicone sealant.
