With Eco and Sustainability issues often being at the top of the global green issues agenda, the building industry is now more than ever under close scrutiny. The Aluminium Industry is making a positive and proven contribution and global recycling rates are high,
After extensive research and consultation with key supply partners, Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems unveil the new Comar 9P.i High Performance Framing, Windows and Door System.
The extensive market research indicated that a thermally efficient future-proof facade system was required, with off-site manufacture and value engineering solutions that actively seek to reduce material content.
Comar 9P.i high performance framing offers two options of construction, ladder frame or mitre frame. 9P.i windows and 9P.i doors hang directly from the frame, reducing the need for additional outer frames, creating a truly integrated solution. Building typologies differ from refurbishment to new build, so Comar 9P.i has profile widths of 80mm or 120mm creating greater design flexibility.
There are three levels of thermal performance, standard, multi-chamber and multi-chamber thermal foam, creating U-values of between 1.6 to 1.0 for a typical grid size with opening vents.
Comar 9P.i has slim 65mm sight lines to ensure that architecturally demanded aesthetics are achieved. Glazing lines are flush, maintaining consistent lines for a sleek external facade providing straight interfacing with walls, internal floors and partitions. Consideration is also given for plaster lines, with profiles to cater for differing situations. Comar 9P.i windows can be open-in or open-out side, top or bottom hung and a tilt and turn option, offering unobtrusive top light ventilation. Comar 5P.i vertical sliding windows and horizontal windows can be integrated into the Comar 9P.i framing. Glazing sizes have been catered for up to 62mm; this means that future requirement for high performing acoustic or triple glazed solutions can be specified.
