Products and Services

Unitisation

Unitisation involves prefabricating exterior sections of a project off site, and assembling them on site, onto prefabricated fixings. We are one of the few companies who can offer a unitised approach to our construction process.

There are several benefits of unitising work as opposed to manufacturing on site, these include:

  • Reduction in plant working hours by approximately 80%.
  • Scaffolding can be eliminated, which improves site safety, and lowers cost.
  • Greater quality control as sections are made in a controlled factory environment.
  • Less waste is produced in a factory setting, making it better for the environment.
  • Less risk and less disruption.

Curtain Walling

Curtain walls separate the interior from the exterior, but only support their own weight and the loads imposed on them (such as wind loads, seismic loads, and so on).

The design flexibility and strength of aluminium combined with high-performance glazing make our curtain walling products eye-catching, contemporary and a functional element to any building design. Our glazed walls effortlessly blur the divide between inside and outside, allowing spaces to be filled with panoramic views and natural light. We can offer tailored solutions to suit different spaces and design requirements.

 

Louvres

Our wall and window louvres combine intensive ventilation with an aesthetically pleasing design. Depending on the type of ventilation you need, a selection of specially designed blades are mounted in a frame. Each blade and blade configuration is different, allowing different things to pass through it or over it.

We can provide different types of louvre, including:

  • Rain defence
  • Ventilation
  • Screening
  • Acoustic
