Wicona Projects, part of Hydro Building Systems, has published a new guide to its unitised curtain walling system, which has recently been launched in the UK.

The demand for unitised façades is increasing as more developers, architects and contractors are recognising the benefits of moving elements of the construction process into a controlled factory environment.

Fully glazed and sealed off site, the Wicona unitised system can reduce time on site by up to 70 per cent, enhances quality and performance, scaffolding may not be required and there are unlimited aesthetic variations for the building envelope.

The new literature outlines the benefits of unitised façades, some of the design options, and the Wicona approach – the first in the UK to offer a complete turnkey service for the building envelope.  The guide also includes technical specifications, test results and a selection of high profile and technically challenging international applications of the system.

An industry first, the Wicona approach is to oversee the full package for the unitised curtain wall, from design concepts to fabrication, installation, testing and handover, giving architects, contractors and developers the benefit of a seamless approach and complete peace of mind.

Suitable for both new build and refurbishment, the Wicona system is one of the most widely used and technically advanced unitised systems in Europe.  It can be adapted to specific project requirements and new designs can be developed for more complex façades.

Any combination of profiles, external feature caps and glazing can be specified and the system can incorporate stone cladding; metal, composite or polycarbonate panels; windows, doors and fixed light glazing; brise soleil sunshading and photovoltaic panels.  It is fully tested to the most stringent European standards for air permeability, water tightness and wind resistance.
