Diagonally shaped curtain walling leaning outward and without a singular regular pane of glass or panelling beyond the doors is just the sort of challenge which AluK relishes.

This single storey installation, at the newly opened Nandos restaurant and EE store on the Orbital Shopping Park in Swindon, enabled the specialist aluminium systems company to demonstrate both the versatility of its product range and its ability to create project solutions for clients.

Installed by WD Group for main contractors RG Carter, the curtain walling was an integral part of architects Stride Treglown’s vision for the landmark structure, which also features a flying roof. It features AluK’s SL52 flexible capped curtain walling system throughout, with an entrance door fabricated using the suited GT55TB door system. 

The diagonal design and irregular angles meant that AluK had to create a solution with multiple transom and mullion sections which was cost effective, while still being true to the aesthetic and meeting the static considerations and performance requirements laid out.

The biggest issue was designing out the drainage and connections of the system, which AluK’s expert technical team successfully achieved by working alongside the architects in a 3D environment from an early stage, without compromising on any aspect of the overall design. In fact, to maintain the consistency of the design, AluK also utilised its proven pressure plate and cover cap within the roof soffits, using a bespoke clamp fitted through the cladding system.
