New Sapa Sliding Door Meets Demand For Transitional Living

July 2018

NEW SAPA SLIDING DOOR MEETS DEMAND FOR TRANSITIONAL LIVING

Driven by the trend for transitional indoor-outdoor living, aluminium systems specialist Sapa has launched its high-end sliding door – the C160S. Belonging to an entirely new generation of sliding systems, this energy efficient door combines a great aesthetic with high thermal performance - ideal for urban apartments and traditional homes alike.

Achieve better energy efficiency

Reflecting increasing product performance requirements within building regulations, the C160S delivers the thermal values required for tomorrow’s residential needs, today. Energy performance is designed into the heart of the lift and slide door system coupling profiles with 50mm glass fibre reinforced polyamide strips to reduce thermal conduction. Further improvements to thermal performance, if required, can be achieved by the use of customised thermal barrier elements within the profile cavities of the door and frame.

Frame exceptional views with large glass panels

The improved thermal performance does not compromise the system’s strength. Capable of glazing areas up to 2.8m high, its range of track configurations provide multiple opening and fixed glaze options. Acoustic needs are also well catered for with glazing depths of up to 53mm making it ideally suited for environments where external noise might be problematic. Utilising stainless steel rails and polyamide rollers ensures the lift and slide system provides a light touch and ease of operation on even the largest of doors.

Integrate interior and exterior design effortlessly

Design and style within residential apartments and houses play a key role. The C160S design allows for dual colour options meaning exterior building requirements need not affect interior design choices. With over 400 powder coated paint colours available in matt, gloss or satin and an optional anodised finish, accessories can also be supplied in corresponding colours to match the profiles for a coordinated look.

Designed with attention to detail

Real attention has been paid to both finishing details and building integration; for example, integration of the frame into the building structure renders the outer frame near invisible, maximising the available light while allowing a flush finish to the internal floor. Where such integration is not possible a range of standard and low threshold options are available. The C160S also features an ingenious reverse locking principle, with elegant locking plates on the frame side, eliminating unattractive and protruding locking bolts whilst protecting the operator from risk of snagging.

Excellent weather performance

Featuring integrated sealing with two levels of drainage for efficient water evacuation and EPDM gaskets throughout the lift-slide door ensures water and draft free closure, whatever it faces.

Dependent upon configuration, the C160S achieves impressive weather performance; 600 Pa for air permeability (EN 12207), 900 Pa for water tightness (EN 12208) and 1800Pa for wind resistance (EN 12210).

Commenting on the launch of the new door system, Sapa’s Market Manager James Wilson said: “Trends in increased daylighting require larger glass sizes and weights; however, when these are applied to sliding doors the system strength and ease of operation are critical. Our C160S offers specifiers and homeowners a highly attractive aesthetic line, exceptional performance and remarkable ease of use. Recent C160S developments means we are now ideally placed to advise on optimised large sliding glazed solutions and we would urge customers to contact us for any specification support required.”

Sapa windows used again on final phase of landmark Newcastle student accommodation

July 2018

A total of 770 windows from one of the largest suppliers of aluminium building systems in Europe, Sapa Building System, feature on Newcastle’s latest student accommodation addition, Verde. This is the fourth and final phase of the £250 million Downing Plaza development - the largest planning application to be granted in Newcastle for a generation. The same Sapa systems were used on the first phase of the development.

Located on the former Hill Court site adjacent to The University of Newcastle Business School, which was built by Downing in 2011, the new building named Verde has been designed by award-winning architects SimpsonHaugh. This striking landmark sets a new standard for student accommodation in Newcastle and comprises 431 cluster beds and 112 studios, making 543 in total.

Situated on the junction of Pitt Street and Wellington Street, Verde comprises two buildings that form a V-shape, creating a façade that runs parallel to both streets. A direct response to the site’s triangular nature and the parameters set out in the wider Science Central masterplan, Verde’s angular architectural design rises to a point at the northeast corner of the site. This marks the building’s main entrance and adds a dynamic focal point to a key junction into the city from the north.

The two structures are clad in a green glazed terracotta tile laid horizontally across both buildings with a selection of projecting tiles creating a sense of movement and signalling the development entrance. Dark blue brick is introduced at ground level where the facade has been recessed. SimpsonHaugh’s Project Architect, Jonathan
Mallinson, explains the bold colour selection: “The bright green colour was chosen as both a counterpoint to the striking blue colouration of sister development ‘The View’ whilst responding to, and complementing, the natural earthy colour palette of the surrounding built context.”

For the glazing specification, the building was thermally modelled as part of the Part L Assessment, with the performance requirements for the windows generated by its outcomes and outlined by Desco (Building Services Engineer), in conjunction with the Downing.

As a result, façade specialist, Dane Architectural Systems Ltd installed 770 Sapa Building System window units, constructed primarily from DF 75 Si TBT (Tilt/Turn) as well as fixed light DF 75 Si Casement.

SimpsonHaugh’s Project Architect, Jonathan Mallinson, commented on the window installation, he said: “We are pleased with the simple clean and crisp lines of the Sapa profiles available to us. The window format and arrangement was chosen to align with the horizontal emphasis of the overall façade language. The windows were
top hung, so when open, seek to mimic the shingle profile of the terracotta tiles within the façade.”

Dual colour finished, dark grey to the outside and white internally, Ian Bambridge, Estimating Manager at installer Dane Architectural Systems Ltd clarifies why this range was selected: “Of course, pleasing aesthetics were key but thermal and acoustic performance, security and especially the size of opening vents, in view of the fact that it is a student development, were especially important.

“The windows were required to perform better than current Part L2A building regulations and the DF 75 Si range does just that.”

He adds: “For acoustic reasons, the high performance glazing specification changes throughout the building. Various thicknesses of glass were used in different areas, for example to the back of house the requirement was lower than front elevations, which corner onto a busy road and needed higher specification glazing.”

“The tilt and turn windows are locked out of turn and are purely used for ventilation for safety reasons. Sapa systems met the specification for the project and are costeffective, offering a higher performance window and real value for money.”

Commenting on the on-site installation, Downing Construction Project Manager Vic Spain said: “Verde is a concrete-framed building and the installation was undertaken floor by floor from the bottom of the building upwards to accommodate the nature of concrete construction methods. The SFS wall went in first followed by the windows. We’ve worked with Dane Architectural Systems and used Sapa windows on other developments, so the window installation was a smooth process, taking just 20 weeks to complete.”

As a range, the DF 75mm Si windows offer advanced polyamide thermal break technology, providing high thermal performance without the need to resort to complex and costly sealed unit specifications. Tailed gaskets and centre seal reduce thermal radiation and mean that costly foam inserts into the profiles are not needed.
Part of Sapa’s Secured by Design range, DF 75mm Si windows are BS7950 accredited, with external beading requiring no additional components.
