Fabricator: PAGE Group (Peterborough) Ltd
Main contractor: Rydon Construction
Project value: £281,500
Type of works: supply and installation of Comar 6 curtain walling and Comar 7 doors.
Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems, with its approved fabricator PAGE Group (Peterborough) Ltd, supplied the Comar 6 curtain walling and Comar 7 doors for a new-build Health Centre in Rainham, Essex.
To create light and give a striking glazed front façade, Comar 6 ladder frame curtain walling was installed. Comar 6 offers a slim 50mm sight line with a multitude of transoms and mullions to cater for all deflection loads and configurations.
For the entrances, Comar 7 swing doors were selected. Comar 7 commercial doorsets are a natural choice, not only are they available in swing, pivot, sliding, auto-sliding and sliding/folding, they have also been designed specifically for commercial applications, where high traffic solutions are required. AXIM concealed overhead closers with a 900 hold-open facility and anti finger-trap stiles were fitted and provided easy disabled access to comply with the DDA.
All Comar systems were polyester powder-coated in a RAL 7040 Grey matt finish.
All Comar approved fabricators are required to have the technical expertise to attend pre-site meetings and provide detailing. PAGE Group (Peterborough) Ltd liaised closely with the specifiers to provide design advice and detailing, which ensured the project ran smoothly and met site deadlines.
