Aluglass Bautech products were used on the new Standard Bank building in Rosebank.
18 Varikust VK62 Glass acoustic doors were recently installed at the Standard Bank building in Rosebank to serve as access doors into offices, giving the divided office space a light and transparent feel with the benefit of sound insulation. VK62 Glass uses a combination of toughened safety glass (TSG) and laminate glass depending on acoustic specifications, with a 5mm aluminium lip and 100mm grey back-painted glass border to hide the sealing mechanism.
In addition to the above, 22 Varikust VK83 doors, approximately 2 700mm high x 900mm wide, were installed with sound insulation of 40dB. The doors were finished with a natural white oak veneer that was stained brown to suit the ground-floor interior. Aluglass Bautech’s Varikust acoustic doors are multi-rebated doors with an internal handle-activated sealing mechanism between the bottom of the door leaf and the threshold. The system allows for an uninterrupted floor finish and easy operation.
Not only is acoustic control essential for an optimum working environment, but solar control is also essential for achieving a five-star Green Star rating.
For the north, east and west atrium, 122 blinds with Mermet S2 in grey/white fabric are fully motorised and integrated into the building management system using standard motor interface (SMI) motors and KNX control automation. This allows the blinds to function fully automated, requiring no user input to open or close the blinds.
