- About Peak
Peak curtain wall options offer a proven, cost effective solution for low, mid and high rise applications. Developed to provide a high quality answer to many fenestration requirements, it offers total flexibility in specification.
The curtain walling can be either single or double glazed for improved thermal and acoustic performance.
The systems offer a range of mullion depths to cater for differing structural conditions. A range of door and window inserts are available as well as complementary sections for sloped glazing and a range of external caps to vary the finished appearance.
Our curtain walling options consist of either a box or a box and plate format for factory frame assembly using mechanical methods at butt joints. Assembly uses stainless steel or plated self tapping screws into either cleat blocks or integral screw ports extruded into the body of the sections, directly through square cut adjoining component parts.
Vertical sections are designed to run through. This enables individual panels to be made separately, easing the problems associated with handling and transporting large or multi-panel frames when fully assembled. The system may be glazed using dual gaskets or a combination of tape and gasket to suit individual performance requirements.
Our curtain walling products are thermally broken and compartment drained which offer performance characteristics in line with the highest requirements of the industry. When tested in accordance with the procedures laid down in BS5368: Parts 1, 2 & 3, the products achieved the following classification for weather resistance as defined in BS6375: 1989.
