Metal Technology goes back to school in Moray

Metal Technology goes back to school in Moray

Architectural aluminium manufacturer Metal Technology has supplied its curtain walling, door and window systems on a replacement for one of Moray’s largest secondary schools.

The new £40m Elgin Academy incorporates Keith Primary School and has a pupil capacity of over 1000. The new accommodation comprises classrooms, a games hall, gym, fitness suite and dance studio.

Applied on the multi-storey secondary school, Metal Technology's System 17 High Rise Curtain Walling offers the designer a wide range of profiles that provide structural integrity, weather performance and thermal enhancement. Considered a highly cost-effective, quality engineered glazing solution, System 17 complies with current British Standards and is an appropriate option for expansive high rise glazed applications. System 17 has been extended to include a mono or dual pitch roof light system that creates a complementary appearance to the vertical façade.

On the single-storey primary school, Metal Technology’s System 8 Low Rise Curtain Walling was installed. A highly cost-effective, simple to fabricate glazing solution with clean, attractive external lines, System 8 is an optimum solution for expansive low rise glazed applications.

Fully compatible with System 17 Curtain walling, and installed across the project, the 4-20 thermally- broken casement window offers the advantages of polyamide thermal break technology in meeting the requirements of current building regulations.

In the education setting, Metal Technology’s System 10 commercial door answers a number of design questions. The system offers single / double–action pivot doors, in both standard and anti-finger trap forms and a fully rebated option with butt hinges is also available. Double and single door leaf options are included in the range and a variety of door jamb and stile formats offers the designer flexibility to achieve the entrance required.
