54 EXTERNAL ENVELOPE


Contractor Bouygues chooses Deceuninck over aluminium


development of luxury apartments in Southampton. Alexandra Wharf is a collection of two and three bedroom, stylish water-front apartments, forming part of the Ocean Village development at the city’s marina. Although aluminium profiles were originally specified, Deceuninck fabricator Dempsey Dyer worked with contractor Bouygues to customise the specification to allow the use of sustainable PVC-U. The contemporary look of the 2500 chamfered series closely mimics the look of aluminium – so closely that at street level it’s impossible to distinguish the PVC-U in the apartments from the aluminium used for the Harbour Hotel next door. The building also called for 150 sliding


M


doors and Dempsey Dyer and Bouygues opted for the clean lines of Deceuninck’s Slider 24,


ore than 700 frames of Deceuninck’s 2500 chamfered windows have been installed in a


which suited the contemporary design. It’s also one of the highest performing doors on the market for weather, water tightness, and security. All 150 doors and 700 windows were externally finished in Anthracite Grey Smooth Foil on white PVC-U internally. The harbour location and design of the building posed several technical challenges. The high rise nature of the apartment building design required strong windows to withstand high wind and water pressure – a challenge easily met by Deceuninck’s 2500 window with its Class 4 air permeability, Class 8A water tightness, and Class A5 2000Pa exposure. The high salt content of the sea air also required special consideration. Austenitic hardware was required to combat the corrosive effects of salt water and all the hinges and screws used in the project have a TRICOAT surface, treated with a top coat containing a micro-corrosion protection


system. The seaside location also meant the windows required a low solar gain and the 0.28 G-value of the 2500 window ensured that the building would not overheat. The project was completed in full and on


time within 12 months, and contractor Bouygues was extremely happy with the finished development.

“A” First Class Flame Retardant Membrane I


n a UK building materials first, Industrial Textiles & Plastics (ITP) is launching a Euroclass A2 flame retardant breathable


membrane for roof and wall installations. Powerlon FlameOut Breathe Class A is a woven material, engineered with the highest level of flame retardant properties. Independently tested to EN 13501-1, FlameOut Breathe Class A is rated A2-s1,d0. Prior to the launch of this innovative multipurpose breather membrane, the highest level of flame retardant breather materials offered in the UK were Class 0 (BS 476 Parts 6 & 7) or Euroclass B. The introduction of FlameOut Breathe


Class A is timely: changes to UK building regulations will ban the use of combustible materials on the external walls of new buildings over 18 metres that contain flats, plus new hospitals, residential care properties and dormitories in schools and student accommodation (over 18 metres). “FlameOut Breathe Class A represents a new generation of fire protection materials for the construction industry,” said ITP’s Managing Director, Marc van der Voort. “It builds on


our two decades of experience in flame retardant technology for building materials as well as temporary containment sheeting.” While the Euroclass B rating is the highest


for inflammable materials, Class A2 rated materials are non-burnable. The S1 rating indicates very limited smoke development while the d0 rating shows no burning droplets when the material is exposed to direct flame during the testing process. CE Certified FlameOut Breathe Class A is heavyweight with very high tensile strength, good water vapour transmission and is rated W1 for water tightness. Proprietary FR tapes and glues are offered with the membrane for effective installation. Other flame retardant breather membranes


in the Powerlon range include FlameOut Breathe (rated Class B-s1,d0) and UV resistant breather membranes, which are suitable for use behind open or closed ventilated rainscreens and facades: Powerlon UV145FR (Class B-s3,d0) and Powerlon UV Colour FR (Class B-s2,d0).
