The MB-SE80 SG segment-based façade displays high resistance and excellent performance, while at the same time allowing to create façades of a very aesthetic appearance. The system enables swift installation of the finished façade segments without the use of traditional scaffolding, which is crucial when it comes to construct high buildings. In addition, previous preparation of the ready-made segments of the structure simplifies and speeds up installation, and at the same time increases the quality of the fabricated product.
The apparent width of mullions and transoms of the MB-SE80 SG façade is 80 mm. What makes this product different, is its fully structural, 4-edges SSG system that comes with customized bottom hung windows and folding corner joints. The MB-SE80 SG system was tested at the National Certified Testing Laboratories in York by the standards applicable in the USA. In addition to the parameters such as tightness of the façade, was also confirmed the assumed resistance to tectonic movements.
The MB-SE80 SG has been designed and implemented for the needs of 325 Lexington Avenue building in New York, and then modified according to the requirements of another American project: MARRIOTT Long Island City. The modification included the sealing system and the design of profiles. This enabled the structure to meet the required resistance (increased to a value of ± 13 mm) to seismic displacement, and increased the level of tightness of the façade. Other customized aspects are bottom hung windows and angle connections, allowing the fabrication of the characteristic concave portion of the MARRIOTT building façade. The MB-SE80 SG system provides the possibility to mount special anchors for “climbing fixing”, designed for façade maintenance teams.
