Exceeding Building Regulations Requirements
MODAL has also been developed to deliver the highest level of thermal efficiency for low rise glazing and will exceed Building Regulations requirements – both current and likely revisions.
The standard system is fully thermally broken and will achieve exceptional thermal performance and low U values – whether the specification is for a fully glazed façade, or incorporating the MODAL integral opening vents, or Technal’s GXi sliding window and balcony door.
For example, MODAL will comfortably attain a U value of 1.0 W/m2K with a combination of 50 per cent fixed light glazing and 50 per cent insulated panels, using a glass specification of 1.1 W/m2K.
MODAL has also been successfully tested to both curtain walling and window standards (British and European) – BS EN 13830 for curtain walling and BS EN 14351-1 for windows – giving specifiers further reassurance of the system’s superior weather resistance and outstanding performance.
MODAL uses a highly engineered and innovative modular framing system designed to reduce work on site and to give specifiers the widest choice of configuration options currently available in the UK for façades up to two storeys.
It will provide robust, stylish, secure and high performance glazing for low rise applications such as schools and colleges, healthcare facilities and leisure projects. Variations for single and two-storey façades include single, double and triple glazed units; fixed lights; integral opening vents; doors; an integrated sliding window and door system; infill panels – and many combinations.
