CW 50

CW 50-HI now offers better thermal insulation than ever

Reynaers has launched its improved aluminium Concept Wall 50-HI (High Insulation) system, which offers better thermal insulation properties than ever before.

This new variant of CW 50 benefits from improved insulation profiles, which can achieve an impressive insulation value (Uf) down to 0.56 W/m2K with a glass thickness of 60 mm. Previously this was 0.73 W/m2K, while the standard CW 50 system has a Uf value of 1.7 W/m2K.

As the CW 50-HI is now provided with standard glazing gaskets, the aluminium curtain wall system is suitable for even heavy duty triple glazing, up to a maximum of 61 mm.

A further advantage of the new CW 50-HI system is the ease of production and installation. The insulation profile used in the HI system consists of a pre-cut part, so that drainage canals can be incorporated easily. Installation is made even more convenient because the glass doesn’t require waterproof taping to the pressure plate area.

Marketing Manager at Reynaers Rebecca Cope said: “The CW 50-HI is a well-proven façade and roof system available in different glazing and design variants, including an extensive range of profiles.

“The new system also offers varying levels of fire resistance and thermal insulation, and can accommodate triple glazing, making it ideal for low-energy buildings. Other features include a parallel opening window, a top hung window, a hidden vent turn and tilt window, as well as a flush roof vent.”

Offering extensive design freedom, this curtain wall can be custom-designed – as seen in the bespoke system used in the impressive office complex and art space in Prague, ArtGen. Developed by PPF Real Estate and CMC architects, the modern building is both environmentally-friendly and visually stunning.
