Arundel Square, a new residential development in Islington, North London, UK, will have about 1,000 energy efficient IG units from FGI“s Everseal range featuring AGC“s Planibel low-E laminated glass. Incorporated into an innovative aluminium curtain walling system designed and installed by Deepdale Solutions, the glazing is acoustically rated to reduce ambient noise from the outside, as well as offering excellent thermal insulation for the 115 apartments and penthouses. Everseal vision units are combined in the contemporary six-storey building with FGI“s Everclad ceramic frit panels with 60mm insulation. Units range in shape and size from 2,395mm x 1,932mm to 145mm x 735mm. The project also specified Everseal IG units with specialist edge work and bolt-through assemblies for glazed porches in the penthouse apartment area. Everseal vision units produced for Arundel Square are assembled from 10mm Clear laminated glass, 12mm warm edge Thermo Plastic Spacer (TPS) and 8.8mm Top N+ laminated soft coat glass from AGC“s Planibel range. Top N+ is a high light transmission, low emissivity glass specially designed for use in double-glazed units, offering thermal insulation up to 1.1 U-value with argon gas filling, along with free solar heat gain and low light reflection. Thanks to TPS warm edge technology, Everseal gas-filled laminated units offer superior insulation and reliability with a uniform temperature over the entire surface, while the flexible edge seal tolerates thermal stresses and wind loads – a crucial factor in commercial and structural glazing.
