Windows Chosen for Thermal & Acoustic Performance

Our TB50 curtain wall system, ST80 high-performance windows with integrated louver panels and out ST80 rebated doors. Our ST80 window system was specifically chosen to meet the thermal and acoustic requirements outlined in the design stage of this project.

“New Mill is an extremely energy efficient building, and this is what we should come to expect from all new builds going forward. There are very exacting specifications in a project like this. From the point of view of the end users, acoustics were a major part of the design brief.”  Mr. Luke Gibbons, BAM.
