We manufacture modern glazed elevations of office buildings and houses, spatial constructions and roof glazing that ensure appropriate lighting of the interior and enhance aesthetic properties of the building. For clients who want to give the elevation a modern and elegant look and practicality whilst improving thermal insulation of the building, we offer manufacturing of claddings made of aluminium composite panels as well as ceramic, fibre/cement and decorative laminated panels.

ELEVATION SYSTEMS FOR PUBLIC USE BUILDINGS, OFFICE BUILDINGS AND HOUSES

Are you looking for an idea for the elevation of your home or office building? In our offer we have a number of fashionable, untypical decorative elevations that will hold your guests in awe. Do you make elevation systems for office buildings? We will help you select appropriate elevation materials, e.g. claddings made of composite and ceramic panels, and provide you with ideas for elevations that will work out in all weather conditions.

 

VENTILATED ELEVATIONS

Alsal is a manufacturer of ventilated elevations made of different types of elevation materials such as aluminium composite panels, fibre/cement panels, hpl and hdf panels, or ceramic and gres tiles. For manufacturing of these elements, apart from elevation materials listed above, we also use special aluminium and steel loading profiles, aluminium and steel hooks, and thermal insulation (rock wool).

The idea of a ventilated elevation is based on a few key elements by which this type of elevation differs from traditional one, namely:

  • NO LINGERING OF WATER VAPOUR CONDENSATE IN THERMAL INSULATION BECAUSE OF THE MAINTENANCE OF A VENTILATION GAP BETWEEN THERMAL INSULATION AND THE LAYER PROTECTING AGAINST RAINWATER. THE VENTILATION GAP ALLOWS FOR EVAPORATION OF WATER VAPOUR CONDENSATE.
  • RESISTANCE TO ANY WEATHER CONDITIONS AND UV RAYS, HIGHER THAN IN CASE OF A TRADITIONAL ELEVATION.
  • RESISTANCE TO MECHANICAL DAMAGES AND STRIKES, HIGHER THAN IN CASE OF A TRADITIONAL ELEVATION.
  • IN THE EVENT OF A POSSIBLE DAMAGE OF A PART OF THE ELEVATION, ITS EASY RECONSTRUCTION.

Claddings used on external elevations, due to their aesthetic properties and high resistance to mechanical damages, can be also easily used in corridors/main halls, representational rooms, train/bus stations, swimming pools, etc.

In its offer ALSAL has ventilated elevations made of different types of elevation materials:

  1. Aluminium composite panels:
    2 layers of aluminium, copper and other material sheet plus a plastic filling, depending on fire requirements such as PE, FR, A2, etc. for example. There are options available with different colours of varnish coatings, both for one or two layer(s) of sheet.
  2. Fibre/cement panels:
    Panels based on cement with various types of fibre filling preventing from brittle fracture of the element. Different types of panels are available: varnished, in-mass colour coated and natural.
  3. HPL and HDF panels:
    Panels based predominantly on timber industry products. Different types of panels are available: external, internal, laminated and varnished.
  4. Ceramic and gres:
    Panels based predominantly on ceramic and gres. They can be mounted both mechanically and with specialist glue.

 

At the same time, elements manufactured by us take into consideration the requirements of relevant standards and regulations concerning:

  1. Resistance to wind load
  2. Fire retardation
  3. Watertightness
  4. Acoustic properties
  5. Heat permeability
  6. Strength requirements
  7. Resistance to weather influences

 

ALUMINIUM/GLASS ELEVATIONS AND FACADES

Alsal is a manufacturer of various types of aluminium/glass facades. For manufacturing of these elements we use special profiles, both for external and internal elements. Facade systems are dedicated mainly to constructions that have significant amounts and sizes of glazing, such as hotels, conference centres, swimming pools, banks, public utility representation facilities, etc.

ALUMINIUM/GLASS ELEVATIONS AND FACADES

The elements most often manufactured with the use of facade systems are aluminium/glass building elevations, skylights, elements of a big span, complicated 3-dimensional blocks as well as winter gardens and other street furniture constructions that cannot be manufactured with the use of window/door systems. Windows and doors described in “WINDOW/DOOR SYSTEMS” can be built into façade systems in different configurations.

In general, façade systems differ from window/door systems whose width of (vertical) post profiles and (horizontal) beam profiles is the same while their depths are different. This allows for construction – with the use of these systems – of far bigger glazing than in the event of window systems, without any detrimental effect for their visual aspects.

Another difference from window/door systems is the way we glaze aluminium/glass facades. We do it “from the outside” in contrast to window/door systems that are glazed “from the inside”.

 

DEPENDING ON PRODUCT CLASSIFICATION CRITERIA AND THE FUNCTION IT HAS TO FULFIL, ALSAL HAS GLASS CONSTRUCTIONS FOR THE BUILDING SECTOR, INCL. ALUMINIUM/GLASS FACADES AND ELEVATIONS, IN ITS OFFER:

  1. Architectural form/way of mounting fillings (glass sets, emalit, etc.):
    • Standard façade: A filling mounted with pressure and masking strips visible from the outside.• Semi-structural facade (commonly referred to as “semi-structure”, “effect”): A filling mounted with fastening clips invisible from the outside – only silicone joint visible from the inside.• Structural façade: A filling is adhered to aluminium frames that are then mounted to the load-bearing skeleton of the aluminium façade (posts and beams) with screws not visible from the outside – from the outside you can only see only a gap with seals between glasses.
  2. Type of load-bearing skeleton:
    • Post and beam facade: Continuous construction of posts and beams with horizontal dilatations every 1-2 floor(s) – first the posts and beams construction is mounted to the building; then the façade filling is installed.• Element (so called segment) façade: First façade tiebacks are mounted. Then ready-made segments of the façade (aluminium frame with a filling) are delivered to the construction site. Finally, segments are hung on already mounted tiebacks.
  3. Depending on out of plumb aluminium façade:
    • Up to 12 degrees out of plumb: vertical facades
    • Above 12 degrees out of plumb: inclined facades, daylights
  4. Thermal requirements:
    • Without requirements
    • Standard requirements
    • Increased requirements
  5. Acoustic requirements:
    • No requirements
    • With increased acoustic requirements

The above categories may exist in various configurations in a single element, e.g. standard element façade (a filling held with external slats), above 12 degrees out of plumb, with standard thermal requirements, etc.

At the same time, elements manufactured by us take into consideration the requirements of relevant standards and regulations concerning:

  1. Resistance to wind load
  2. Resistance to snow load
  3. Resistance to crowd load
  4. Air permeability
  5. Reaction of fire
  6. Watertightness
  7. Impact resistance
  8. Burglary resistance
  9. Acoustic properties
  10. Thermal transmittance
  11. Strength requirements
  12. Resistance to weather influences
