The Ideal Aluminium Alternative: Logik by Eurocell

10 December 2015

An apartment block in Nottingham became the latest site to fit our system

Eurocell’s Logik system has been praised for its quality, fabrication speed, and costs after Warley-based AJS Windows & Doors Ltd used it as an aluminium alternative for 13 separate sections of curtain walling on a new apartment block in Nottingham.

Aluminium frames were used on the first phase of the project. But with aluminium costs soaring and the end client looking for a more cost-effective solution, Logik in light grey PVC-U was deemed a better option for creating the curtain walling in the project’s second phase.

“As soon as we presented the Logik system to the client, they knew it was the solution,” says Roy O’Sullivan, managing director of AJS Windows & Doors. “They particularly liked the Eurocell system because it was an extremely close match to the aluminium sections used on the first phase of the project.”

The 13 curtain wall sections provide an open and airy feel to the stairways leading to the 145 apartments. AJS Windows & Doors fabricated and installed the frames into the steel curtain wall framework. All of the Logik frames were made using acoustic glass to reduce noise levels and provide residents with quieter living. Tilt-and-turn Logik windows and sliding patio doors were also installed.

“Being able to use the Logik system for the curtain walling, windows and patio doors was a definite advantage in terms of fabrication efficiency,” says Roy. “It also meant the client had a perfect colour match throughout the development, which was important in creating a high-specification feel.”

Coloured PVC-U has grown in popularity due to its ability to provide a more contemporary finish.

By using fully bevelled profiles to visually reduce the frame proportion in relation to the glass area, Logik’s slimmer sightlines create the appearance of high-end aluminium systems. Logik’s common glass sizes for internal and external windows and doors also eliminate the need for scaffolding by allowing frames to be glazed from the inside.

“This is a major benefit for us and the developer,” says Roy, “because it enables a quicker and safer installation of the glass on site.”

The Logik system is designed around a 70mm front-to-back dimension, making it suitable for both new-build and refurbishments projects. Along with white, Eurocell offers the system in a range of standard colours, including grey and cream, along with Rosewood and Golden Oak finishes.
