  4. 4. page : 4 For designs that seek to achieve maximum visibility within a strong, secure and safe structure, there is no better combination than steel and glass. The inherent strength of steel enables the use of larger glass panes, increasing light transmission, enhancing aesthetics and comfort in modern building design. spanning your technical requirements transparency re s nt ce ion ull Steel – strong and “light” dm Steel has an exceptional modulus of elasticity (210 kN/mm2) and resistance to deflection, making it ideal for large glazed areas of heavy glass, large span curtain walling and roof glazing or for high an traffic doors and oversized windows. ans Due to the capacity to accommodate large mullion centres, steel can meet the requirements e sp of modern transparent architecture whilst providing resistance to high wind loads. Minimal framework larg The inherent strength of steel allows for slim sightlines with curtain walling profiles. Mullion widths can be as slim as 45mm and unsupported spans in excess of 13m can be achieved without additional structural support. Dramatically increasing light transmission, ASD Spanlight is ideally suited to car showrooms, shopping centres, offices and transport interchanges. Quality secure living space Another key benefit of using steel is its low thermal coefficient (50W/m2K) which enables U value ratings of 1.6 W/m2K or below for curtain walling systems. ASD Spanlight is also available as a photovoltaic system, helping to reduce the carbon footprint of modern buildings. ASD Spanlight also offers high acoustic performance and excellent weather rating according to EN standards. Buildings using slimmer mullion sections with exceptional structural Ix values gain additional benefits of increased floor space and exposure to natural daylight. ASD Spanlight systems also create a safe and secure environment by protecting buildings and their inhabitants from fire and physical attacks. Modulus of elasticity

  7. 7. page : 7 Achieving a seamless design to facades and door systems is made possible by the wide range of solutions within the ASD Frameless systems. Used in many retail applications as well as major office and showroom constructions, frameless solutions bring the outside in, creating stunning visual facades and uninterrupted exterior views. the ultimate in transparency seamless Flooded with light The simplicity of combining glass panels with stainless steel fixing systems results in an engineered solution with minimal structure and maximum visual impact. Whether you are specifying bolted glazing systems for facades and roof glazing or frameless glass doors, the result is the creation of light and spacious interiors with impressive uninterrupted views. Bolted glass systems from ASD Architectural are both strong and durable and offer considerable energy efficiency and acoustic properties. Frameless chemistry of glass and stainless steel ASD Frameless systems are made out of stainless steel and offer versatility in design and construction options. Maximum visibility can be achieved when constructing façades, shop fronts, sky lights or canopies, using bolted systems that complement the overall light and airy feel of the building and create a timeless design. Frameless glass doors and screens portray a high quality modern image and can be creatively used in commercial and retail environments. This diversity allows specifiers to bring individuality to their design, through items such as pivoting bar doors, stylish sliding doors, automatic doors or large and high traffic passage glass doors. Completing our range of frameless systems is ASD Elegance, an impressive glass balustrade and handrail system that includes features such as structural glass panels and a unique handrail that incorporates multi-coloured LED lights.
  8. 8. page : 8 a revolution in thermally efficient systems natural light With increasing global concern for the sustainability of our planet, it is essential that the construction industry plays its part in lowering its carbon footprint and providing specifiers with glazing solutions such as ASD Therm for optimal thermal performance. Steel is the perfect answer: it has inherently low conductivity, offers small heat mass and less framing joints, and is intrinsically 100% recyclable. Steel: a green material With low thermal conductivity, steel and stainless steel systems can achieve outstanding low U-values. ASD Therm systems will offer a U-value of 1.6 W/ m2K for curtain walling and roof systems, whilst thermally broken windows and doors will perform with a U-value of 1.7 W/m2K. These U-values easily meet the requirements of Building Regulations Part L. Thermal coefficient Stainless Steel Carbon steel Aluminium 0 50 100 150 200 Wm-2K-1

Naturally sustainable Based on iron, the world’s most abundant raw material, steel glazed systems are both natural and sustainable. Steel is 100% recyclable on a multiple basis without degradation of its properties or performance. A designer can specify steel today safe in the knowledge that it is unlikely ever to become waste.

ASD Heritage systems offer the perfect match to renovation projects enabling style and history to be preserved whilst maintaining harmony with the surrounding environment.
  13. 13. Ind us try page : 13 Mu seu m, Ch em nitz, ermG any preserving heritage in the modern world uthentic o ny rm ha t al en ro nm e nvi Slim and sleek One of the principal reasons that steel and prestige metals are such a popular choice for framing systems in heritage renovation projects is the slimline nature of steel framing profiles. Slim profiles allow window and door designs to sit in harmony within the classic building structure without spoiling the look or obscuring the view. Classic and thermally efficient Whatever their intended use, classic, historic and listed buildings can be sensitively restored to maintain classic styling whilst upgrading the glazed areas to meet the exacting demands of current Building Regulations. ASD Heritage systems have been used on a wide range of regeneration projects blending new materials with the original building fabric to create some striking examples of sympathetic preservation. Whether you choose a standard mild steel-powder-coated steel system, a modern stainless steel or classic brass, bronze or Cor-Ten, the results are the same: an impressive makeover that is in total harmony with the heritage of the building and the surrounding environment whilst achieving new levels of energy efficiency. Shape and form All of the benefits that steel and prestige metals bring to new buildings are equally relevant to renovation projects. Steel is particularly effective for reconstructing sash windows or arches, whilst bronze or Cor-Ten achieve the same objective but with a classic look. Whatever the chosen finish, ASD Heritage systems are highly weather resistant, durable and long-lasting.
  14. 14. page : 14 ASD FINELINE Steel Winter Gardens the finesse of steel elegant an With the classic look of authentic winter gardens, our exclusive steel framed system creates truly unique building extensions for residential, retail and leisure developments. The ASD Fineline system provides the opportunity to produce elegant, individual buildings with style and atmosphere. Authentic elegance The ASD Fineline system revives a sense of traditional design yet offers all the comfort and requirements of a modern home or commercial property extension. The elegant combination of slim steel framing and large glass panels in this unique and patented steel system will create inspiring spaces for a dining room, office or any living or working environment. Optimised thermal performance The unique design of ASD Fineline window systems requires no thermal break to achieve good insulation, enabling aesthetics, rigidity and strength.

  17. 17. page : 17 and secure Fire resistance Fire resistance is an important factor in all building constructions, helping to protect occupants and provide suitable escape routes in the event of a catastrophe. Steel is the ideal material for the construction of passive fire protection systems, maximising security, natural light and aesthetic appeal via slim sightlines. Fire rated steel curtain walling and roof glazing are widely used in combination with steel glazed doors and partitions for means of escape, compartmentation or protection against external fire spread. The main markets are commercial, health, education and transport sectors as well as secondary glazing projects. ASD Fire systems provide the largest library of fire tested products in Europe for doors, screens, facades and roof glazing – all tested to the most stringent European (EN1634) and British Standards (BS476 Part 22) for integrity only (up to E 180) or integrity and insulation (up to EI 120). d ASD fire systems include some unique applications such as double acting door for isa corridors, anti-finger-trap doors for schools and hospitals, sliding or automatic bil swing doors for DDA requirements or butt-joint partitions for uninterrupted view. ity acc Security and attack resistance ess In today’s challenging global security scenario, many buildings are classified as vulnerable to terrorist or burglary attack and require sophisticated attack protection measures to be built into the building specification. Examples include airports, shopping malls, sports stadia, banks and high profile office buildings in both the private and government sectors. ASD Security systems offer many solutions to meet the most challenging security rmany situations, including bullet proof and bomb blast systems as well as burglary resistance (tested to Secured by Design, LPS1175 or ENV1627). All of these robust rf, Ge solutions out-perform alternative materials.
