Elegance 52 SX

Continuous structurally clamped curtain walling

Elegance 52 SX provides a low cost alternative to full structural silicone glazing, creating a flush glazed appearance using concealed pressure plates.

Elegance 52 SX description

  • Based on the connection and mullion drainage principles of Elegance 52 ST, the Elegance 52 SX solution uses specialist double glazed units with a silicone seal between adjacent panes for a flush glazed appearance.
  • The outer-pane of the double glazed unit is structurally bonded to the inner pane, and a continuous system specific void is formed around the perimeter to create an area into which continuous half pressure plates can be manoeuvred and secured directly to the nosing of the mullions and transoms.
  • Once installed, the half pressure plates form a complete continuous clamp on the inner pane of the unit, securing and sealing it to the curtain wall.
  • This solution provides an economic alter­na­tive to traditional structural glazed curtain walls, creating a flush surface appearance.
  • Where openings are required, the Elegance 52 IT NS window can be seamlessly integrated. 

Performances

Air Tightness

A4

Air Tightness

Air tightness refers to the amount of air that will travel through a window or door system in its closed position, both under positive and negative pressure.

Water Tightness

R7

Water Tightness

The test applies specified amounts of water spray to the outside face of the window (combination) while incrementally increasing the air pressure. The result defines the test pressure, time and position of any water infiltration.

Wind Resistance

900 Pa

Wind Resistance

The test applies a series of positive and negative test air pressures. Measurements and inspections are made to asses relative frontal deflection and resistance to damage from wind loads.

Impact Resistance

I5 / E5

Impact Resistance
