Introducing the SF62 Silicone Glazed Curtain Wall System

Some of you may already be aware of the SF62 & the SF52 curtain wall systems that we fabricate and install throughout the UK, however, we now have the SF62 in silicone glazed and is now available for upgrades and fabrication by Alphamet.

Like the Fully Capped option, the Silicone Glazed SF62 curtain wall system is ideal for ultra-high-rise projects and those where structural movement is a challenge on the project.

Remember that the SF62 system is extruded to order, so please contact your nearest Technical Sales Manager for latest lead times and advice on product suitability.

Further developments of the SF62 system will follow with the introduction of horizontal capped, vertical capped and faceting due early 2020.

This new option for our SF62 Curtain Wall Systems has been created to give specifiers more design options and we hope that it will enable you to bid for even more projects.

Please get in touch with us directly to request a manual or speak to one our sales team for more information.

Why Use Aluminium Windows?

Aluminium has become the go to material for frames these days and in building eco friendly large scale projects there are many reasons why we are using aluminium window frames as opposed to timber or uPvc.  Aluminium windows are everywhere now, used for commercial and residential projects and the benefits are clear for all to see.

Aluminium is durable & Strong

The beautiful thing about Aluminium is that it is super strong and this means it holds the glass in place better than UPVC and other materials and also means longer lasting.

Despite their ultra-light weight, aluminium frames are very strong. The frames can also be easily manipulated, making them the perfect choice if you have windows that are an unusual shape.

The strength of aluminium frames means that they can be made slimmer than timber or PVC, allowing more space for glazing and therefore more light.

Aluminium is ideal for replacing old steel frames

If you have steel window frames, replacing with Aluminium makes perfect sense, you get a stronger alternative and better looking alternative but there is minimal disruption to your business or home.

Aluminium is flexible

You can bend aluminium to your needs, which means less rivets and joints that can break around the frame. Also, makes for a more streamlined look.


Aluminium does not rust, so you wont have to worry about keeping them clean, also aluminium can be sprayed by a professional aluminium company or coated for aesthetics so you get the look you want with low maintenance.

If you want window frames to blend with your overall exterior décor scheme, you could choose powder-coated aluminium frames, which are available in a wide range of colours. Powder-coated frames don’t need painting and the colour won’t fade, making them the perfect choice if you want a splash of colour without the hassle of regular maintenance.

Environmental friendly Aluminium

Not many people know that aluminium is completely recyclable, which means you are investing in the future of our planet and keeping your carbon footprint to a minimum.
