Aluflam AW60 shop fronts are high performance, thermally broken narrow aluminium frames with its cavity filled with patented fire retardant cooling core. Incorporating extensively tested fire resistant glazing, the AF70 system can be used internally or externally in either 30, 60, 90 of 120 minute fire ratings.
Aluflam glass structures are extensively tested in Australia and throughout the world to the highest standards for fire resistance.

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. 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. The AW60 system can support larger glasses thickness including triple glazed up to 90mm thick. 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 AW60 Shop Front framing systems can be framed in modular sections up to a maximum of 5.6m wide x 5.6m 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. For large butt joint installations, the frame can be assembled during installation.
AF70 and AF91 single and double doors can be installed into an opening in an AW60 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. Curtain wall installation brackets can be used instead of direct fixing through the frame.
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.
