System 655/16 - Curved
System 655/16 is a versatile curved glazing system offering high
strength and insulation combined with streamline aesthetics.
Ideally suited to canopy and walkway coverings, kerb mounted or
ridgeline rooflights plus parking bays or pool room roofs, System
655/16 barrel vault glazing offers a range of advantages.
The simple design combines 16mm multiwall polycarbonate sheet with plastic coated steel glazing channels and anodized aluminium eaves profiles.
The square section or tubular glazing channels are manufactured pre-curved to a fixed radius of 3000mm or 5000mm and will free-span up to 5m. Alternatively custom radii can be requested within the design parameters. The curved glazing channels are secured to the eaves trim at 655mm centres then sheets are located above the open topped channels and simply snapped down into place. Thermal breaks in the glazing are thus avoided by having the glazing channels on the inside of the glazing.
System 655/16 Curved is suitable for a wide range of applications, where thermal insulation is important it's low U-value of 2.2W/m2K out performs both double skin vac formed dome rooflights and continuous twin pane barrel vault systems.
The robust system has also been tested by the BRE for 'non-fragility' to the current rooflight standard [ACR(M)001:2005], achieving a class B rating.
System 655/16 Curved is offered with clear or opal sheet finish
as standard or in special tints to order. Opening sections can be
incorporated to provide ventilation when required and the system
can accommodate aluminium header sections as well as solid or
multiwall polycarbonate glazed ends.
As sheets and channels are manufactured to the exact length required, with each sheet factory sealed, the site work and fitting time are significantly reduced. Materials are normally delivered direct to site in approximately 4 weeks ready for fixing to the supporting structure.
Panels will withstand temperature variations between -40oC and +130oC and are supplied with a 10 year warranty.
