Kawneer launches THE architects guide to aluminium in building


THE architect’s guide to aluminium in building has been launched by leading UK manufacturer of designer glazing systems Kawneer.

The ultimate specification guide is presented as 380 individual and easily updated pages within a ring binder that is then housed within a slip case to give it additional presence and longevity on architects’ library shelves.

The new specification guide details Kawneer’s peerless portfolio of traditional “stick” and unitised curtain walling systems, door and window systems, door and window sliding systems, framing systems, Brise Soleil, and blast enhanced and fire resistant systems.

It also features well-illustrated sections on design consideration prompters such as ventilation and windload requirements, building movement, acoustic and thermal performance, DDA compliance, interfaces and finishings.

This focus is also extended to sustainability, product materials and finishes, installation, fabrication and site work, services and support, and maintenance and cleaning, and even contains a glossary of terms.

Beautifully photographed case studies show the Kawneer systems in stunning use in the residential, commercial, education, healthcare, and arts and leisure sectors.

QR codes on the ring binder and slip case link directly to the home page of www.kawneer.co.uk and the inside front cover features a clear pocket for a business card or memory stick. Designed specifically to be easily updated, the guide includes a registration card for architects to be kept up to date on changes automatically.
