1st Access UK's Curtain Wall system is an economical and attractive facade cladding for buildings where good weather and thermal performance is required. It is suitable for low-rise applications up to 20m tall.

  • The system has been independently tested in accordance with the CWCT Test Method for Curtain Walling, and the Technical Test Report can be inspected upon request.
  • The profiles are based around 75mm, 100mm and 125mm mullion and transom designs, plus a 50mm box transom.
  • The choice of profile sizes and frame design is determined by the expected exposure to local wind pressures.
  • The system can accommodate 6mm, 6.4mm 8.8mm, 10mm, or 10.8mm single glass units or panels with the use of aluminium adaptors and gasket variations, and 24mm or 28mm double glass units or panels.
  • Vents made using the Curtain Wall Vent Outer Frame (from the 50mm Window Suite) can be fitted in the same way as a 24mm glass unit.
  • The system is designed for pressure equalised zone drainage, which is achieved with drained and ventilated glazing rebates.
  • Infils are retained with rigid PVC pressure plates incorporating co-extruded weather seals.
  • Inner seals are made from EPDM, and are also available as vulcanised corner components.
