VS-1 Mullion only curtain wall system
Designed to provide a versatile option for the design and build of façades, VS-1 by Facades & Glazing Solutions (FGS) is a complete system which can accommodate the widest range of architectural styles.
VS-1 gives designers freedom to create façades that are visually interesting, original and eye-catching. A mullion-only system, the VS-1 has no transoms to break long vertical sight-lines, giving architects, façade engineers and clients the freedom to explore complex and original designs.
The aluminium mullions hold the glass façade away from the structure using gravity brackets in combination with toggle-only fixings or pinch plates to deliver a flush glazed finish. The mullions, which span the full height of the façade, can be coloured to suit any design requirements.
VS-1 KEY BENEFITS
Simplicity – its relative simplicity reduces risk of component failure, improves constructability and reduces costs of programme delays in both construction and post construction phases.
Unbroken sightlines – VS-1 can deliver up to 14m unsupported spans without the need for mid-point lateral support.
Visual appeal – held away from the mullions, the illusion is given that the glass façade is ‘floating’.
Overcoming design complexity – VS-1 can accommodate building movement of up to 12.5mm between adjacent mullions.
FGS’s technical excellence – VS-1 is compatible with other glazing products to achieve the optimum combination of solar, acoustic and thermal insulation.
Fabrication speed – the simplicity of the components means that fabrication time is particularly quick.
