Passive house design has been on the rise in modern architecture, and here the U-MAX® CW142 Beaded Curtain Wall raises the bar. Levels 1 to 3 of the Chancellery Building incorporate the newly released, thermally broken beaded curtain wall. The seamless design of the curtain wall integrates beautifully with feature steel sunshade screens to create a striking workplace and events venue for Monash University. On top of this, the curtain wall creates an airtight facade, helping produce an excellent thermal performance rating, in line with the Monash University EcoAccord.
The U-MAX CW142 Beaded Curtain Wall uses a thermally broken beaded stem on its frame which allows it to achieve the stringent U-value and air leakage requirements from the National Construction Code 2019. Along with the curtain wall, you’ll notice the U-MAX SG182 thermally broken suite as a window wall on the ground floor plus the U-MAX 45mm Commercial Door at the entrance. IND Windows used our U-MAX suites, as they can help significantly reduce energy loss all year round, making them ideal for projects wishing to use passive house design principles.
