Nottingham-based Acorn Aluminium has been installed Jack Aluminium’s Curtain Wall Suite in a new state-of-the-art building for The University of Nottingham at the heart of its Park Campus.
The curtain walling forms part of a new facility that includes workspace areas for academic staff, postgraduates, undergraduates and administrative staff arranged around a central atrium.
Jack Aluminium’s curtain walling uses PVCu pressure plates to create a thermal insulation barrier and speed up installation. This combined with cost effective glass units provides a high performing curtain walling set with excellent thermal performance.
David Stephens Sales Manager at Acorn Aluminium Ltd said: “Jack Aluminium’s low U-Value curtain walling suite met all of the required standards and came in within budget for the project at The University of Nottingham. Having worked with them for more than five years, we knew we could rely on Jack Aluminium to deliver a quality product on time.”
Jeff Pearson, sales director of Jack Aluminium added: “Jack Aluminium’s Curtain Wall Suite combines aluminium with PVCu to enhance the thermal performance of the unit to make it ideal for school and university buildings.”
“Jack Aluminium’s Curtain Wall Suite is designed for low rise applications with a ‘clip in plate and ladder system’ which enables rapid assembly and installation once on site.
