AluK curtain walling systems have been specified and installed in some of the world’s most prestigious buildings. AluK’s unique lightweight solutions offer building designers the flexibility to create the structures they desire, whilst maintaining the performance and functionality demanded by
modern UK buildings.
Combining strong but lightweight double glazed aluminium profiles with glazed sections, AluK’s curtain wall systems can be faceted, curved or angled to create the desired design, whilst optimising light transmission into the building with minimum profile sight lines.
All AluK aluminium profiles are thermally broken to ensure maximum performance and systems include a wide range of features to provide complete design flexibility. These include a capped system and a structurally bonded system, multiple drainage methods, face caps and a multitude of opening configurations including doors, parallel opening vent, tilt before turn, side hung and top hung. Below is a summary of the features and benefits of each of AluK’s two new aluminium curtain walling systems:
