Santara, Jersey

Jersey
The project team responsible for a striking residential property in the Channel Islands have used Technal’s Dualframe 75 windows and the Elegance 52 curtain wall system, supplied by Pallot Glass & Windows, to match the property’s modernist styling, as well as to provide outstanding weather performance in a very exposed situation.

Stapleton House, London

United Kingdom

Stapleton House is a design and build project by Balfour Beatty Construction Services who created 862 high specification student spaces across nine floors in the large and logistically challenging student accomodation project in North London. 

The property is located by the very busy Holloway Road and therefore needed an enhanced acoustic rating for each elevation facing the public highway, as well as the achievment of high thermal, weather and security standard throughout. 

The fabricator Sealtite, along with the Technal UK technical support team duly delivered a proposal of Elegance 52 curtain walling and the Dualframe 75 Si windows and provided detailed drawings, strength calculations, thermal calculations and information on acoustic testing.
