The new MODAL low rise façade system from architectural aluminium glazing specialist, Technal, has received a European patent for its innovative and technically advanced design.
MODAL uses a completely unique modular framing system which gives specifiers the widest choice of configuration options currently available for low rise façades. It also radically reduces work on site – the framing modules are fully fabricated and assembled in the factory for better quality control, rapid installation and on-site glazing.
MODAL’s highly engineered profile clip and gasket system has now been patented. This intelligent design allows the framing modules to be clipped together without any mechanical fixings for an improved finish, time-saving installation and a greater variety of glazing combinations with fewer profiles – making it a more efficient and cost-effective façade solution.
The system also now has three further European patents for the aesthetic appearance of the profiles when assembled.
Specification options for MODAL include:
Fully tested to both BS EN 13830 for curtain walling and BS EN 14351-1 for windows, the MODAL system was developed by Technal to provide stylish, robust and high performance glazing for low rise applications such as schools and colleges, healthcare facilities, leisure and commercial projects. Its range of module options allows more design flexibility for low rise façades than ever before.
Other innovative features of MODAL include:
The system has its own exclusive handles, which are strong, secure, contemporary and ergonomic, and MODAL façades are available in a wide choice of finishes – single and dual colours, polyester powder coated, natural self-colour, anodised, and Cendré – Technal’s palette of exclusive flecked gloss colours.
