System Used: TB50 SG Curtain Wall

Our TB50 SG curtain wall system was installed on phase one and two of the Alexion pharmaceutical development. The office and administration building at phase one, also features our TB50 Concealed Frame Awnings.

Curtain Wall Ventilation Solutions

Our structurally glazed concealed frame awnings were installed to add much-needed ventilation to the office and administration building at phase 1 of this development.  They fit seamlessly into our TB50 SG curtain wall system, providing a streamlined, aesthetically pleasing finish.

The eco-friendly aluminum glazing profiles used on Alexion were produced using recycled materials and manufactured to conform with industry environmental standards.
