INDUSTRYNEWS Getting away from the swinging 60’s »»Metal Technology products has been used to give a stunning facelift to a 1960s office building on London’s Edgeware Road. The refurbishment design by Architects AWW (Atkins Walters Webster) specified a high performance façade system engineered to reduce air leakage and exceed current insulation values. The modernisation of the building was completed with the introduction of a new, double height entrance lobby. Metal Technology’s System 5-20D Hi+ thermally broken doors, System 17 high rise curtain walling and System 25 Hi+ lift and slide/sliding doors were selected for both performance and aesthetic credentials. System 17 Curtain Walling not only provides structural integrity with high levels of thermal and weather performance but offers limitless flexibility in specification. With a wide range of structural mullions, transoms and feature caps or the option of silicone pointing, System 17 can meet the visual and performance requirements for any building, from the smallest screen to expansive glazing applications. The System 5-20D Hi+ High Performance Thermally Enhanced Door is part of Metal technology’s THERMAL suite of systems that also provide high levels of structural integrity, weather performance, and security. This suite of systems utilises bespoke thermal gaskets, cellular foams and polyamide thermal isolators, all of which help achieve impressively low U-values. Commenting on the scheme, project architect Mark Alker Stone said: “AWW is refurbishing this prominent building to provide a contemporary building as a new landmark within Colindale that benefits the local area in terms of its architectural quality, energy performance and contribution to Edgware Road.” www.metaltechnology.com YOU HAVE FITTED SECURE LOCKS BUT ARE THE WINDOWS SIMPLY LIKE UNLOCKED DOORS TO A BURGLAR? Many homes have double glazed windows where the glass is secured by a beading on the outside. This can easily be removed and is one of the most common ways that burglars get in. Taking out the glass is quick and makes no noise. NO-GO GLASS LOCKS lock the glass into the frame so that the glass cannot be removed without smashing the glass. NO-GO GLASS LOCKS are designed to be easily fitted to existing windows and are a very cost-effective way to make a property even more secure.
