Specialised glass solutions

Aluglass Bautech has been successfully offering turnkey glass and glazing solutions with its Glassflex® range of quality, functional and durable products for commercial and high-end residential projects.
While the options for customisation are vast, a selection of Glassflex® glass products which can be seen in various areas of Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton, are an example of versatility and quality workmanship by Aluglass Bautech.

Fixed flush-glazed facades
NS SolarVue HL neutral laminated safety glass was specified to glaze approximately 680m² of glass facades on Nelson Mandela Square. The 6,38mm option was specified for the smaller panels and the 8,38mm option for larger panels.

Frameless glass doors
To produce the 3,6m high frameless glass entrance doors at the entrances of Nelson Mandela Square, 19mm thick clear toughened safety glass was used.

Flush-glazed curtain walls
Aluglass Bautech has partnered with HBS Aluminium Systems to provide optimal strength and advanced framed aluminium solutions. The HBS Advantage curtain wall system was best suited to create the 5th Street glass box, using 8,38mm SolarVue HL neutral laminated safety glass. A special feature in the glazed curtain wall is the actuated windows for smoke extrusion.

The flush-glazed curtain wall on 5th Street in Sandton is 11m high and more than 36m wide (including the sides), and features actuated windows for smoke extrusion.

Aluminium-framed windows
Powder-coated, top-hung and fixed-panel windows from the HBS Window Wall system easily integrates with 6,38mm glass for stylish framed windows.

Sliding folding doors
Opting for either 6,38mm or 8,38mm laminated safety glass, one can enjoy the flexibility of top-hung and fold-away doors, such as the ones seen at restaurants on Nelson Mandela Square.

All of these specialised glass solutions are manufactured according to the standards of the South African Glass and Glazing Association (SAGGA), and are available with decorative treatments that also offer increased performance, complementary Aluminium extrusions are available in a range of colours.

Acoustic Glazing
For any acoustic glazing needs, the GF Serene is the ideal acoustic demountable glass partitions system, to create quiet office spaces within open plan applications. Quick and easy to install, remove and re-install with modular glass elements and flexible frame components
