The proprietary system by Aluflam North America features
an aluminum extrusion with insulation core allowing ratings of up to one hour for a flush glazed system, and a curtain
wall system option with ratings up to two hours.
factory fabricated system allows for maximum factory assembly, lower field costs and assembly issues, and eliminates achieving
an aluminum look via applied cladding.
All systems are tested
to requirements under ASTM E119, UL listed and labeled. Sold as systems, which include framing, doors, door hardware
and rated glass, this minimizes any issues with compatibility, assures the use of high quality components, and eases coordination
The look for the standard system is one of a conventional flush glaze
storefront with a wide range of finish options including clear and color anodized, as well as standard and Kynar painted finishes.
Installation is very familiar and the doors are prepared for finish hardware, with the hardware being supplied as part of
the door package. Glass is shipped separate for field installation after doors and frames are installed.
curtain-wall system offers one and two hour rated versions with a various depths to allow for varying applications. Used in
interior and exterior applications, the aluminum design also offers finishing in clear and color anodized, as well as standard
paint and Kynar finishes. Doors carry ratings of sixty and ninety minutes with several hardware options. The systems are furnished
with matching rated glazing as part of the package allowing for one-stop sourcing.
Doors up to 6080
are available with up to a one hour rating, and up to 7080 with ninety minute ratings.
configurations such as fixed transom, sidelights and borrowed frames are available to meet project needs, as well
as butt-glazing in select sizing. Due to the fabrication techniques used, field assembly and fitting is kept to a minimum,
allowing for lower field labor costs and making the system competitive with conventional hollow metal systems, giving
you a different and more pleasing look, and a solution over rated steel insulated systems where ratings of one hour and above
are required. (Code mandates systems to meet ASTM E119 where the assembly rating is greater than forty-five minutes).
While this system with various options are geared towards interior applications, exterior options can be supplied
with certain limitations. For applications in Florida, the system is not currently listed by FBC for exterior envelope
use (Check in the near future for update).
