Intelligent design

Exlabesa Building Systems’ ECW 50 curtain walling system is being hailed for its versatility, after being specified on a wide variety of commercial building projects

Paul Benn, Exlabesa Building Systems’ national sales manager, said: “It has an intelligent design that makes it simple and cost effective to manufacture and install. It’s also visually stunning because its 50mm profile widths mean it has beautifully slim sightlines that maximise the glazed area.”

There is a choice of depths for structural members, mullion sizes of up to 220mm and transom sizes of up to 195mm. Internal reinforcing bars are available where bigger spans are needed, plus a range of structural add-ons, while a range of external caps give different finishing options.

It has 28mm glazing as standard but can accommodate glazing of up to 46mm for projects where thermal efficiency is paramount. Where a total project solution is needed, the system can be easily integrated with Exlabesa Building Systems’ KWS window systems and KSF and KTS commercial door systems.

The ECW 50 system has a thermally broken system, is fabricated using European components, and is tested to CWCT and UNE EN 13830:2016 standards for weather resistance, safety in use, energy efficiency and heat retention.
