Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems, with their approved fabricator Veranti Systems; recently completed the new Seaford Library complex in East Sussex. This multi million pound project is part of the Sutton Park Road development for East Sussex County Council and Saxon Weald Homes and includes a library, cafe, supported living for adults with learning disabilities and adult day services for older people.
This mixed use project was completed using Comar 5P.i Tilt & Turn windows, Comar 6EFT Curtain Walling, Comar 7 Folding Sliding Doors and Comar 7P.i CD doors in both Pivot and Sliding configurations. Comar 5Pi window system uses trademarked Polyamide Insulated (P.i) that provides exceptional thermal performance in a market where energy efficient designs and meeting the demands of the latest building regulations are paramount. From fifteen basic Comar 5Pi profiles, all window configurations, such as casement, top swing reversible, pivot, tilt and turn and sliding can be manufactured.
The architect’s design vision was to create a continuous wall of glass to the libraries ground floor facade. With this in mind, and to ensure the design brief could be achieved, Comar 6EFT was selected as it offers architects a flexible system, providing a structurally glazed solution, with options for facets, concealed vents and an extensive range of profiles that cater for large structurally glazed panes.
In a mixed use development both Comar 7 and Comar 7P.i CD systems are a natural choice. Not only are they available in swing, pivot, sliding, auto-sliding and sliding folding, they have been designed specifically to be suitable for public and domestic applications. The entrance doors to the library were also required to comply with the Disability & Equality Act 2010.
