State-of-the-art window frames optimise strength and outlooks in Christchurch's flagship UniMed building – product by Fairview Systems, installation by Canterbury Aluminium
Choosing the right window frames can bring added strength to a building project, while the right glazing creates a cool, low-e outlook for occupants.
UniMed building in Christchurch is a case in point. The flagship building includes a mixture of frames from Fairview Systems – 100mm, 125mm and 150mm Commercial seismic frames and 40mm Architectural – installed by Canterbury Aluminium.
All joinery is Mist Black Anodised and features frameless glass doors at the entry points, says Canterbury Aluminium's Shaun Crawley.
"Visually the building is impressive – the front façade is four storeys high with our joinery covering3.8m x 21m on each floor. The glazing is N70 Clima-guard Low E – which has a nice blue-green tinge."
The firm also installed joinery to the 14m internal feature stairs that rise to Fairview's glazed roof light.
