Sotawall® Unitized Curtain Wall Technical Information

SOTAWALL® HYBRID-WALL® PRODUCT INFORMATION:

High Performance Unitized Wall Systems For High-Rise Residential Buildings

PERFORMANCE

Air Infiltration 

Air infiltration shall not exceed 0.03 cfm/ft2 when tested in accordance with ASTM E283 with a pressure differential of 6.24 psf.

Water Infiltration

There shall be no infiltration of water to the interior face of the system assembly when tested in accordance with ASTM E331. Water application (5 gal/hr/ft2) at a pressure differential up to 15 psf.

Dynamic Water Resistance

There shall be no infiltration of water to the interior face of the system assembly when tested in accordance with ASTM 501.1-83. Water application (5 gal/hr/ft2) at a pressure differential of 10 psf.

Structural Performance

The deflection of any framing member in a direction normal or perpendicular to the plane of the wall when subjected to a uniform load shall not exceed L/175 of the clear span or 3/4” maximum when tested in accordance ASTM 330.

Thermal

Average weighted system “U” value for the wall assembly shall not exceed 0.25 btu/hr/ft2-Fº. This value may vary according to glass selection, framing configuration and spandrel to vision ratios. Please contact the manufacturer for detailed analysis for specific projects.

Condensation Resistance Factor (CRF) – minimum 75 when tested in accordance with AAMA 1503-98. Values may increase according to frame configuration.

MATERIALS

All framing component extrusions shall be 6063 T6 alloy

  • Structural extruded components (anchor assemblies) shall be 6061 T6 alloy
  • Fasteners shall be 300 series stainless steel to weather side of assembly and zinc or cadmium
    plated to the “dry side” of the wall assembly
  • Glazing gaskets shall be EPDM or silicone as required and in sufficient durometer for purpose

FINISH

Anodizing conforming to Aluminum Association specification AA-M12C22A31

  • Acrylic Enamel Paint conforming to AAMA 603.8
  • Fluoropolymer Paint conforming to AAMA 605.2
  • Finishes available in a variety of standard and custom colours

FEATURES

System can accommodate infill materials ranging in thickness from 1/8” to 1 3/4”.

  • Aluminum rain screen panels in sheet or composite, with concealed fixings and dry gasket
    joint systems
  • Triple glazing
  • Granite and stone in flush glazed or projected applications
  • Terracotta
  • Vertical feature fins
  • Horizontal custom sunshades
  • Standard and custom exterior profile caps
