On a functional level, a second-level draining solution has been incorporated and now supports monolithic or laminated glass in all versions of the same.
It has successfully passed all UK regulations and has been awarded the prestigious CWCT certificate. In addition, it has been submitted to a fire resistance test making it a robust building solution.
A projecting window opening is the latest opening developed in the system. Particularly useful for public buildings, giving great dimensional freedom and allows up to 4 times more ventilation than a conventional one.
An industrial look dominates its exterior image with its new caps for the TL solution. Its lines and exposed screws gives it this appearance.
From a functional perspective, this system comes with a new, 250 mm uprights covering up to 2792cm4, allowing for more extensive configurations and distances between supports.
The waterfall drainage system is an important safety measure for wall curtains. When the configuration is complex there is a need for a second-level draining system in which a vertical component drains on a horizontal one.
A solution has been developed for the ECW-50 that provides complete safety without having to change its profile.
For cases that do not require double glazed units, whether for unheated spaces or hot countries, a complete option has been developed for monolithic and laminated glass.
From March of this year ECW-50 has been awarded the British CWCT certificate. The test protocol of this English laboratory exceeds the European regulation requirements: it includes a wind pressure test and another with water directly hosed onto the joints. It is important to mention the increase in the flow of the water on other parts of the process.
In addition, the fireproof slab faces as another building solution are also worthy a mention. The system obtained the E160 category after passing more than 1 hour under severe test conditions under the EN 13501-2+A1:2010 regulation.
Exlabesa and the manufacturer of structural silicone, Dow Corning, are working together to improve the traceability of the aluminium elements that are structurally glued.
In this way, more precise information is available on the different manufacturing lots and stress tests on glued surface areas. Thanks to this procedure, the tasks involved in seeking maximum safety by professionals is made easier.
