The project involved the design and specification of a glass rainscreen for a group of 5 residential buildings in East London. The rainscreen system comprised 2600mm x 1200mm x 10mm thick toughened sheets of glass supported by an aluminium frame system fixed back to the reinforced concrete structure of the main building.
Fluid’s brief involved the following elements of work:
The original design of the system was based on bonding the glass panels to an aluminium subframe using a Sika Tac adhesive system. Sufficient adjustment to overcome the existing slab edge tolerances had to be allowed for.
