Curtain walls

ELEGANCE 52

Vertical (VL)

Semi-Capped Curtain Walling

Characteristics
Vertical trame

Elegance 52 VL is a specific solutions when a vertical lining is required. The system is based on the Elegance 52 ST basic structure and creates a continuity effect by changing the opposing cover caps for a hidden profile sealed by a gasket.

The hidden profile still allows the tight sealing of glass against the structure, the gasket masks the horizontal detail putting more emphasis on the vertical cover cap. The emphasised cover caps can be chosen out of a wide range of profiles to integrate into the total building design.
