Architectural aluminium systems company Metal Technology has supplied its window products at a 240-home retirement village at Hagley Road, Edgbaston in Birmingham. Built for The ExtraCare Charitable Trust by contractor Galliford Try, and designed by Nicoll Thomas Architects, facilities include an Enriched Opportunities Suite for residents with dementia, a café bar, craft room, hair and beauty salon, and fitness suite.
As consumers become more discerning about their at-home and home-from-home surroundings, specifying for these sectors grows more challenging than ever before. At Hagley Road sustainability and accessibility are at the heart of the scheme, making System 4-35 Hi+ an optimum solution.
Part of Metal Technology’s Thermal range, System 4-35 Hi+, in conjunction with the correct glass specification, is designed to meet or exceed the latest thermal requirements of current building regulations. The high level of thermal performance has been achieved using the latest technology with bespoke thermal centre-seal gaskets, cellular foams and finned polyamide thermal isolators all contributing to the final performance figure.
The Thermal range offers the designer a wide and diverse range of profiles that provide structural integrity, weather performance, thermal enhancement and security. Ease of maintenance is in-built and 100% recyclability is guaranteed.
