Technal glazing features in students' facade
FXi65 casement windows/ MX grid curtain walling
Technal has provided the glazing solutions for phase one of a student accommodation building facade in Leeds.
The 104m high Sky Plaza structure features zinc cladding with deeply recessed Technal FXi65 casement windows, MX grid curtain walling, support aluminium composite panels and large picture windows.
Technal's MX curtain walling was used to form the horizontal link and the vertical strips of glazing where phase two of the development joins the first phase.
MX curtain walling is compatible with the FXi window range and can be used to create low to high rise facades, horizontal or vertical emphasis, and ribbon, structural, faceted, beaded and sloped glazing.
MX Acoustic for additional noise protection and MX62 for larger glass sizes are the latest additions to the extensive range of MX curtain walling options.
The windows were provided in a tilt/turn configuration for each level up to level 19, with internal beading for fast replacement glazing, and the turn mechanism locked off for safety.
Technal's FXi65 casement window features curved profiles and provides thermal efficiency using a 19mm flush polyamide thermal break and gasket detailing to meet or building regulations.
The 65mm module allows more economical glass specifications to be used, whilst still delivering the targeted U-value.
The FXi65 system will also accommodate 17mm up to 48mm glazing units to deliver additional thermal or acoustic performance.
Configuration options include fixed lights, top, side and bottom hung, pivot, tilt/turn and tilt/slide.
