With 20 years experience, Alumet is at the forefront of the curtain walling industry.
Curtain walling allows masses of light to enter a building, creating a bright and uplifting environment.
The large choice of glazing available allows for a range of tint options as well as a range of which colour spectrum can enter the building.
As large panes of glass can often seem invisible, health & safety issues can be dealt with by the inclusion of silk-screen sections to provide prominent visible areas.
In order to enhance the exterior appearance of a building, spandrels can be coloured in order to harmonise with the glazing. This creates a consistent appearance across the envelope of the building.
Energy consumption can be minimised with the use of high-performance solar-control glazing, allowing the building to be kept cool in the summer, whilst minimising heat loss during the winter.
The flexible design can be tailored to incorporate exterior solar shading systems which complement the glass and prevent solar glare during the summer months.
Alumet’s curtain walling expertise was recognized when the company landed the glazing industry’s prestigious Award for Glass Project of the Year.
The award recognized the company’s exemplary achievements on Carnival UK’s new headquarters in Southampton. Alumet designed, fabricated and installed the complete building envelope for the building which sits proudly on West Quay habour, overlooking ships such as the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth II.
The building incorporates 4,586m² of glass and comprises approximately 150,000 sq ft of flexible office space over 5 floors.
