This month we have a new listing from Kawneer to share with you – did you know that Kawneer already have over 30 listings for Revit BIM components available to download on bimstore?

Kawneer, an Arconic Company is the leading manufacturer of architectural systems and products in North America with growing presence in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.   Kawneer offers a comprehensive range of architectural aluminium building products and systems which include curtain wall, windows, commercial entrance doors and framing systems.  Since its beginnings over a century ago, Kawneer has been recognised as an innovator. Through the years, they have balanced experience with innovation. They have listened to their customers, and are dedicated to providing the tools customers need to succeed.

Kawneer products are made from materials of the highest quality and designed with the benefit of many years of construction experience. They control every stage of the process, from mining the bauxite ore through to designing individual systems, and offer a unique resource to architects and contractors.  For the UK market, all system needs are catered for from their Runcorn manufacturing facility based in the NW of England. From there they extrude, insert the thermal breaks and powder coat, a truly ‘end to end’ process.

New on bimstore for Kawneer is the AA®265 Unitised Curtain Wall System.

The AA®265 offers the advantage of a dry-glazed assembly giving the building team a unique set of benefits. These include factory fabrication to ensure additional quality control, rapid on site installation, as well as slimline design and flexibility. In addition, if limited access during installation is required, the AA®265 system can be installed, under restricted working conditions, with the building remaining occupied.  Weathering is achieved by zone drained pressure equalisation. The glazing provides a positive weather seal for high performance. The system also features the exclusive, high performance thermal break.

The AA®265 unitised system gives the specifier a wide choice of styles to create individual and exciting building facades. The AA®265 can accommodate spandrel infill materials including glass, stone and metal panels.  The AA®265 unitised curtain wall system is adaptable to any new construction project from two storeys upwards. The system is ideal for fast track installation where safe methods of work are required. The AA®265 has been exclusively designed and developed by Kawneer, with installation contracts undertaken in collaboration with its network of authorised dealers.  The AA®265 has been tested and certified in accordance with the CWCT Sequence B 2006 Standard for Systemised Building Envelopes.

This download is for the Kawneer AA265 Unitised Curtain Wall System. It includes pre-configured curtain wall types with a square face cap.
