Our high-performance window systems have been designed to meet the increasing thermal requirements of architects and designers, helping to achieve LEED and BREEAM certification. They come with a variety of opening possibilities and thermal performances as low as 0.48 W/m2K. This significantly reduces energy use and operating costs. Manufactured with eco-friendly aluminium profiles, our high-performance window systems are evaluated and tested to the highest standards.
Our highly versatile, energy-efficient curtain wall systems deliver a stylish finish, whatever the specification. We manufacture a wide variety of curtain wall systems to suit any given project.
APA Facade Systems sliding door systems have excellent thermal insulation. Each system has the ability to substantially increase luminosity. Have a look at our doors below for more information.
The ST Door System suite has a variety of profiles which allows for different door types to be fabricated and specified. These options include casement, open-in and open-out doors with an option of three cill options. Integrated fanlights and sidelights can be included in the design of the door. All doors are internally beaded for extra security and have been tested by a UKAS registered facility to the current BS/EN standards, including PAS 24/Secured by Design.
The Juliet Balcony railing system is designed to be installed with our high-performance window systems, tilt & turn window/door system and our ST4-600 Lift & Slide. It features a clear heat-strengthened glass panel providing uninterrupted views and high fall protection for floor-to-ceiling windows or doors.
APA Facade Systems ST RL105 is a high-performance roof light system that is fully compliant with the highest standards for air, water, wind, snow and smoke ventilation.
APA’s Brise Soleil (solar shading) systems are highly appraised and wholly adaptable to our other systems. A wide variety of elliptical blades ranging in size from 160mm to 450mm form part of the APA BS System which can be used to enhance any buildings’ optimum solar shading. Through an extensive range of fixing brackets, APA’s Brise Soleil technology provides the architect with a wealth of flexibility when it comes to designing a feature façade. The system itself can either be installed directly into our range of ST windows as part of a buildings ribbon window, or as part of a more traditional curtain wall grid. The fixing of either horizontal or vertical panels of Brise Soleil to any of the APA Façade Systems has been made easy with the use of specially designed extruded aluminium fixing brackets, which can be painted or anodised to match the colour of the façade. These brackets have been fully tested for load bearing capacity by the CWCT and the horizontal and vertical solar shading assemblies have been fully tested by a UKAS registered Laboratory for stability and durability using a wind generator. All Brise Soleil panels are designed to suit the building’s requirement. Horizontal blades can be assembled onto side plates for connection to support arms – this reduces site labour time. The vertical runner that connects the blades can be fixed to curtain wall facades or different structures which surround punched ope windows, such as brick or block walls, cladding etc.
