For those seeking large glass spans with minimal interruptions, architectural versatility and interior comfort, the new MY62 Curtain Walling System is an aluminium facade system that enables you to create curtain walls with larger glass spans than ever before from Technal – achieving a glazed surface area of up 12m².
With greater demand for 60mm curtain wall systems, MY62 is ideal for new build or refurbishment curtain wall applications that architecturally command maximum natural light and slim sight lines. It is also suitable for both wood or steel frame structures.
Suited to a range of applications
For large glass facades such as those on out-of-town retail developments, schools and university applications or curtain walls for tall office or residential buildings, where building movement is an issue, MY62 offers Technal customers a whole new level of design and technical capability.
Introduced as a new aluminium curtain wall range, in addition to the popular existing MX curtain wall system, the MY62 packages many features that are available from curtain walling systems across the market in one flexible yet fully integrated system.
Larger dimensions than ever before from Technal
With the capability of incorporating wider and taller panes of glass than Technal’s MX aluminium system, the 62mm MY curtain wall structure allows for maximised glazed surfaces of up to 12m², weighing up to 680kg. A larger glazing pocket also ensures better edge coverage, avoiding gaps that can appear due to building movement.
Creative, versatile aesthetics
Architecturally interesting facades can be created using different external effects. Covers, frames asymmetry and curved construction techniques all add to a unique aluminium façade as well as the following design options offered within the MY62 curtain walling system range:
Engineered for simple, fast assembly and installation
Cleverly designed for simple, fast assembly and installation, the MY62 features a patented curtain walling assembly system, which involves a unique Technal mullion/transom PIN system. Extremely strong, the pins can be pre assembled onto the transom in the factory, and, with self-sealing components and a core set of fewer screws, installation time is streamlined on-site.
