KAWNEER Re-Launches Specification Guide

Leading architectural aluminium systems supplier Kawneer has updated its specification guide ( to help architects and specifiers select the most appropriate curtain walling, windows, framing and doors for their projects and to inspire them with innovative fenestration solutions.

The updated guide includes Kawneer’s new, cost-effective AA®540 ‘A’ Rated window system*, featuring the AA®541 casement window and AA®542 pivot window. Two new product selectors are also included to help specifiers choose the right casement and pivot windows for their projects in terms of performance, features, system depths and maximum window sizes.

As well as the new products, the guide also advises on size limitations across the product range and includes new project case studies.

The oversize-A4, 200-page full colour guide advises on the best product solutions for projects in the education, healthcare, commercial, residential, arts and leisure, Ministry of Defence and Government sectors, and bespoke solutions as well as showcasing Kawneer’s capabilities.

It also gives design consideration prompters that are key factors in helping a project run to schedule such as thermal performance, ventilation requirements, windload, safety, acoustic performance, DDA compliance, testing, glazing/panels, interfaces, installation, cleaning, finishing and drainage.

An overview of the production process and aluminium’s sustainability, as well as Alcoa’s green credentials, is also given along with a snapshot of Kawneer’s RIBA-approved CPDs and a glossary of terms.

* Corresponds to the BRE Global Green Guide online generic specification for windows and achieves a summary rating of A for non-domestic schemes Element Number 831500023
