seaford

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.

 

Comar Aluminium Complete New Student Accomodation

Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems, with their approved fabricator Barking Shopfronts; recently completed a change of use building refurbishment on Grove House, Ealing, London.  Situated between Ealing High Street and the  Ealing Green Conservation Area,  this building was a 1980’s unused former teaching facility, forming part of the University of West London, has now been transformed into 100 self contained studios for students. Barking Shopfronts were able to ensure that this project could be completed within the restraints of the budget.

This building conversion was completed using Comar 5P.i Tilt & Turn and fixed light windows, Comar 6EFT curtain walling to the main entrances and stairways, Comar 7P.i Doors for the entrances with Comar 9P.i Framing used for the side lights.

Comar 6EFT 4sided SG provides a structurally glazed solution with EPDM or Silicon seals, 6EFT offers architects the opportunity to maximise a glazed area as it has the slimmest seals on the market enabling as much natural daylight as possible into the staircases.

In a busy residential and particularly high traffic student environment, Comar 7P.i Commercial Door sets are a natural choice.  Not only are they available in swing, pivot, sliding, auto-sliding and sliding folding, they have been designed specifically for public applications.  All aluminium was powder coated to a Grey RAL 7037 Matt finish.

Advanced Aluminium Window System – Seamless Integration – Slim Sight Lines

Comar 5P.i Advanced Window System – Using latest thermal break technology to produce windows for the next generation of solutions. 

Integration is the key factor which underpins the latest new product launch from Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems.  Their market leading Comar 9P.i Framing system offers fast-track semi unitised construction for floor to ceiling glazing, allowing tilt/turn or casement windows to hang direct from the Comar 9P.i Frame as well as rebated doors.  With the addition of thermal foam and triple glazing Comar 9P.i offers U-values down to 0.77, creating a future proof solution for their architectural, contractor and fabricator partners.

Comar announce they have incorporated the technology from their Comar 9P.i system into the Comar 5P.i window range, and are now launching the Comar 5P.i Advanced Casement and Tilt/Turn window system which integrates seamlessly into Comar 9P.i creating the option for standalone high performance windows.

The brief to Comar’s Design Team was to specifically meet architectural demands; low U-values, matching slim sight lines for both the casement and tilt/turn, large glazing pocket for acoustic glass, secured by design and large sizes.  For their contractor and fabricator partners, performance with built in fast-track fabrication and installation.

The Comar team have achieved this with the launch of Comar 5P.i Advanced key features:

  • Testing to BS 6375
  • Casement 750Pa Water Tightness, Air Tightness 600Pa, Wind Resistance 2000Pa, Safety Test 3000Pa
  • PAS 24:2012

With more and more onus on the environment, window and door systems must be sustainable. Using aluminium the Comar 5P.i ECO+ system is 100% recyclable. Aluminium can be recycled an infinite number of times with no loss to its capability. Comar operates an Environmental Management System certified to ISO 140001.

Due to its slim profiles, the Comar 5P.i ECO+ range weighs less than 0.79Kg per linear metre and therefore achieves a Green Guide A+ rating, which can help specifiers achieve the highest BREEAM levels.

For added reassurance Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems holds both a Kitemark and Secured by Design licence for its ECO product range.

Curved Aluminium Curtain Walling Facade for Offices

Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems; with their approved fabricator Formes Alutek Ltd recently completed a new build office building which forms part of ‘The West of Duddon Sands Offshore Windfarm’, a JV project between Scottish Power Renewables and Dong Energy. The project comprises of an onshore substation, 108 wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 389 megawatts and brand new bespoke Operations & Management office facilities based at West of Duddon Sands, Barrow-in-Furness.

A striking curved facade was installed and Comar 6EFT 4sided SG with concealed vents was selected as it provides a structurally glazed curtain walling solution with EPDM or Silicon seals which creates facets at 7.5° increments convex or concave. Comar EFT 4 sided offers architects the opportunity to maximise large glazed areas as it has the slimmest glazing seals available on the market.

Comar West of Duddon Sands Onshore Offices

In a busy office environment, Comar 7 door sets are a natural choice. Not only are they available in swing, pivot, sliding, auto-sliding and sliding/folding, they have been designed specifically for retail applications where high traffic solutions are required. For safety, the Comar 7 swing doors were fitted with anti-finger trap stiles and Axim concealed transom closers which were hung directly from the Comar 6EFT curtain wall again enforcing the reduced the sight lines.

The project was completed using Comar 5P.i top hung windows. The Comar 5P.i 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. All configurations, such as casement, top swing reversible, pivot, tilt and turn and sliding can be manufactured.

Solar shading was a key consideration on the southern elevations of this project; therefore to shade the façade vertically hung Comar Duco-sun C was specified. The blades, rafters and struts are all part of the unique Ducosun multi-fit system which allows fast track installation with its “clicks & glide” assembly.
