The SF52 curtain wall system developed by Senior Architectural Systems provides the ideal solution for creating sleek and uniform façades that provide invisible drainage.
The system contains a drainage spout that only needs to be used above splice joints: the system drains through a vertical pressure plate, meaning no drainage is required on transoms. With no visible drainage slots and slim sight lines, the mullion drained option offers the ability to be faceted to 20° – 10° degrees per side without the need for additional adaptors.
Constructed using step cut transoms, which are sealed against an end seal placed into the mullion, the SF52 system is fully compatible with Senior’s portfolio of windows and doors and is also capable of holding double or triple glazed units in thicknesses between 28mm and 52mm.
Suitable for ground floor or high rise projects, the system is available as capped, silicone sealed or as a combination of the two and requires no special machinery or tooling during fabrication.
Full design support and technical back-up is available and the range is also available via the NBS National Building Modelling (BIM) Library. Fully tested to CWCT sequence B and BS EN 13830, the SF52 system is also recyclable, with a life expectancy of more than 40 years.
