fire-rated aluminum curtain walls
Constructed from narrow aluminum extrusions filled with a proprietary fire blocking internal member, Aluflam's curtain wall frames have up to 120 minute rating for interior and exterior installations. Aluflam curtain wall products are fully tested and listed by Underwriters Laboratories to UL 263 and UBC 7-4 (1997) standards. All Aluflam fire-rated products are MEA approved for use in the City of New York.
Our clear fire-rated glazing is manufactured by Vetrotech Saint Gobain. Glazing conforms to CPSC 16CFR1201 (CAT I & II) standards for impact while providing excellent clarity and sound reduction. Frames are factory finished and fabricated complete before delivery — reducing installation and glazing to a conventional task. For larger openings, frames may be supplied broken down for field assembly.
- Large, wire-free glass areas
- The clean, sharp lines of narrow aluminum framing

Aluflam curtain walls are tested and approved to North American fire standards, and can be integrated with Aluflam's fire-rated storefront doors.
A popular option for glazing Aluflam curtain walls is the Contraflam Structure butt joined glazing, where multiple panels of fire-rated glass can be joined together by means of a unique fire-rated silicone joint. This mullion-less design is available for interior wall systems.
