Axis Curtain Walling and Shopfronts

Axis Automatic Entrance Systems News and PR from Axis Automatic Entrance Systems - Published 16 January 2017 Although primarily known for automatic doors, Axis Automatic Entrance Systems also supply and install curtain walling and shopfronts.
Their system is an economic and aesthetically pleasing solution to façade cladding. It is suitable for use on all low rise buildings up to 20m tall where good thermal and weather performance is required.

The range of profiles is based around 75mm, 100mm and 125mm mullion and transom designs, plus a 50mm box transom accompanied by purpose designed ancillary items required of a high performance curtain wall system. The choice of profile sizes and frame design is determined by the expected exposure to local wind pressures.

The system is designed for pressure equalised zone drainage, which is achieved with drained and ventilated glazing rebates. Infills are retained with rigid PVC pressure plates incorporating co-extruded weather seals. Inner seals are made from EPDM, and are also available as vulcanised corner components.

Full details of weather and thermal performance are available on request.

The Aluminium Shopfront system has profiles to suit both flush glazed and bead glazed applications, or a mix of the two. The flush glazed system has two different pocket widths to take a range of glass units or panels between 6mm and 24mm thick. The pocket profiles enable 'shuffle glazing' of the shopfront frame. The bead glazed system can accommodate glass units or panels up to 28mm thick by varying the beads used.

Both the Curtain wall system and the Shopfront system can be used in conjunction with the Axis range of automatic and manual sliding, swing and folding doors.

Axis offer a nationwide manufacture, installation, commissioning and maintenance service for projects of any size involving aluminium structures whether a shop front with manual doors or a complete automatic entrance system. They also offer access control systems to complement most types of door installation, steel doors, roller shutters, car park barriers and a range of architectural ironmongery.
