A grade safety glass to AS1288 is used in all Aluflam glass structures. Two or more layers of specially toughened safety glass is laminated with intumescent gel that provides thermal protection. For exterior installations a double glazed unit with 6mm toughed low-E glass is used to provide higher comfort levels and also protection of the intumecent gels from elevated temperatures. Refer to our Glass page for details.
Aluflam can supply a number of factory applied finishes including.
- Polyester power coating Refer to our Metal Finishes datasheet for details.
Sidelites and Transoms
The Aluflam AF70 Shop Front framing systems can be framed in modular sections up to a maximum of 6m wide x 6m high. It is recommended to limit each frame construction to 3m wide x 3m high for ease of shipping, handling and installation. Transoms can be incorporated into the frame to reduce the glass pane size. Each frame system can be connected to itself to construct a larger wall construction.
AF70 single and double doors integrate perfectly into the AF70 Shop Front.
Butt Joint Glazing
For a seemless glass look, fire rated glass can be installed without mullions up to 60 minute fire rating. The vertical glass joint is sealed with black fire rated silicone.
When installing in a masonry wall the opening needs to be 20-30mm wider and 20-30mm higher than the AF70 frame. The gap between the AF70 frame and the masonry wall is to be fire stopped with mineral wool (100kg/m³) and silicone sealant.
As a fire door it must be inspected annually in accordance with AS1851 by a competent person checking the operation, tolerances, integrity of the glass and seals. Full details are in the standard.
