A variety of curtain wall applications are available using the same transom and mullion grid, giving specifiers the opportunity to vary the appearance of the building envelope, with all the design and construction benefits of one fully integrated system.
MX is a comprehensive curtain walling suite offering designers high thermal performance to meet even the most stringent building regulations, and a wide range of aesthetic options based on a single system. The variety of curtain walling applications, uses the same mullion and transom grid, and enables designers to vary the external appearance of the building envelope whilst benefitting from the design and construction options of a fully integrated system.
The system is designed for the construction and execution of flat, light-weight curtain walls of the suspended or filling type, roofs, skylights and other structures. The system is a modification of a very popular MB-SR50 façade system, meeting the demands of current trends in architecture.
Among characteristics of the MB-SR50N system is a wide choice of mullion profiles (between 65 mm and 325 mm) and transom profiles (between 5 mm and 189.5 mm) and modern solutions designed for accessories and connecting members. Such features allow for a wider range of loads which are being carried – an infill in a fixed module of the façade may weigh up to 450 kg
The system is intended for constructing and producing the light weight curtain walls of hanging and filling types. The external appearance of the façade free form visible cover beads – similar to the structural wall – was obtained thanks to the appropriate preparation of the in-fills and application of the fastening elements acting in the interspaces between the in-fills and covered with the so-called weather silicones.
The proper thermal and acoustic insulation was achieved by the application of a continuous thermal break made of HPVC insulation material as well as profiled gaskets made of EPDM.
