Sidelites and Transoms

The Aluflam AW60 Glass Partition 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.

Doors

AF70 and AF91 single and double doors can be installed into an opening in an AW60 Glass Partition.

Installation

When installing in a masonry wall the opening needs to be 20-30mm wider and 20-30mm higher than the AW60 frame.

The gap between the AW60 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 throuhgh the frame.

Maintenance

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
