Home > Companies > Kawneer UK Ltd > AA®110 Aluminium 65 mm Stick Curtain Wall System

The AA®110 Stick Curtain Wall system is available in a variety of cap designs and is suitable for vertical and sloped applications, including facetted walls. To provide complete design flexibility, the system is also available horizontally or vertically capped, as a Structurally Silicone Glazed system and a Fire Resistant system. The flexibility of design allows every project need to be met without compromising the performance of the facade. This is achievable through a variety of standard depth mullion, transom, thermal break and gasket options. It is Kawneer's most recommended curtain wall system up to ten stories – over this, it is recommend that the specifier looks into the benefits of a unitized approach requiring less external access to the building’s facade.

  • Wind resistance (serviceability): 2400 Pa.
  • Wind resistance (safety): 3600 Pa.

Options

Drainage:

- Zone drained:

Zone drainage systems feature simple butt-jointed mullions and transoms, with each panel acting as an individual unit. Drainage and ventilation slots are located in the vertical pressure plate. Transoms are square-cut at the ends to incorporate EPDM mouldings and gaskets to maintain each zone. Transoms are fitted with a ‘Batman gasket’ to maintain the thermal performance. Each panel is individually pressure-equalized and drained via its transom, enabling the curtain wall to quickly react to fluctuating wind pressure.

- Mullion drained:

Mullion (or point) drainage systems feature overlapping joints. Drainage and ventilation slots are located in the vertical pressure plate. Transoms are overlapped to the mullion, which incorporates an EPDM gasket to seal between mullion and transom. Transoms are fitted with a ‘Batman gasket’ to maintain the thermal performance. Suitable for slope glazing and for SSG.
