REHAU has posted a new animation on its dedicated YouTube channel to show specifiers that, while its Polytec composite curtain walling system might look just like aluminium systems from the outside, its real secret lies underneath.
The animation literally lifts the aluminium exterior off the curtain walling to reveal the steel sections which are at the core of the system and the PVC-U which is on the inside.
It explains the structural benefits which come from using steel, which is up to three times stronger than aluminium sections with the same geometry, and the fact that the PVC-U interior is low maintenance, warm to the touch and available in any RAL colour.
Malcolm Taylor, REHAU’s Product Manager, explained: “REHAU Polytec is a triple strength glazed curtain walling system which is unlike any other on the market. It combines the inherent benefits of three materials to deliver real performance benefits over conventional aluminium systems but retains the slim sightlines and huge range of colour options which specifiers demand.
“For large spans in particular, it offers huge benefits and this quick one minute animation perfectly illustrates that.”
REHAU Polytec is a Passivhaus Trust A Plus certified product and has successfully been tested to the CWCT (Centre for Window and Cladding Technology) standards for severe weather performance.
