Pure and straight lined – Combine best insulation values with maximum freedom of design. Create especially large glazed surfaces and combine heroal curtain wall systems with windows, doors and lifting-sliding systems.
heroal curtain wall systems meet the increasing requirement for energy efficiency and at the same time offer maximum freedom of design. We offer you system solutions with different focuses, ranging from curtain walls with passive house certification and design-oriented industry variants to fire protection curtain walls. The innovative transom tensioning system heroal PS makes it possible to build especially large glass panes and transom lengths. In addition, heroal curtain wall systems are compatible with numerous other heroal systems such as window, door and lifting-sliding door systems. The polygonal architecture allows for multiple individual designs. Furthermore, heroal’s own bending and edging service provides for the manufacture of sophisticated designs, like arched windows. heroal curtain walls are exclusively developed and manufactured in Germany. Hence heroal is a synonym for quality „Made in Germany“. At heroal, sustainability is given high priority. For example, we use almost exclusively recycled aluminium for manufacture. Convince yourself of the high-quality, versatile heroal curtain wall systems.
Innovative profile systems geared to the future require maximum quality, with a minimum usage of energy and materials for manufacture and maximum energy and cost efficiency during the entire service life. heroal’s insulator technology provides for optimal positioning of screws during curtain wall manufacture; it makes different insulating variants possible and at the same time minimizes inventories. All individual insulating components of the system have a standard design and can be used in almost all heroal curtain wall systems.
heroal aluminium composite profiles are filled with PU-foams in their modular sealing zone. The insulating foam is produced without the use of halogenated propellants such as HCFC. The natural resources sugar and starch serve as additional stabilisation agents. As opposed to the so-called “backpack” variants, where the insulating material is glued on the insulating strips, heroal profile systems yield a better and optimized heat insulation because of the 100% foam fill of the insulating chamber.
The sealing of heroal curtain wall systems towards the structural system meets highest system security standards and is very efficient because of simplified planning and processing. Functions such as curtain wall ventilation and drainage are combined at the base point and that way reduce the number of building parts. Any additional processing of the post profiles is unnecessary. The sealing system makes an easy transition to rainscreen cladded areas possible (ventilated – non-ventilated façade). The uninterrupted, all around installation of the base profile and well-defined integration of foils both inside and outside ensure a vapour-tight connection towards the structural system and the floor.
heroal pays special attention to the sustainable and certified manufacture of aluminium composite profiles. The smart material usage starts with the manufacture of the profile semi-facings. Following the closed loop aluminium recycling principle A|U|F, recovered materials are returned to the production cycle. Eco-friendly production is also a priority when it comes to profile coating. Excessive powder quantities are collected and re-used in a state-of-the-art powder coating facility. Hence, both fabricators and partners also benefit from heroal’s commitment to sustainability.
heroal surface coating opens up design options that could not be realised with other materials and offers coating variants for every application. Above all, the focus is on design and colour variety as well as surface coating durability. heroal coating technologies offer numerous options for design. Different gloss rates and surface designs, such as concrete or wood, are available. The close cooperation with Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier gives heroal access to an exclusive, harmonious range of colours. All surface coatings are characterized by the typical heroal quality and support the long lifespan of heroal systems.
heroal C 50 GD - Visual reduction of the face width of curtain walls
heroal C 50 GD is a design study which represents a true highlight when it comes to curtain walls. The concept benefits from the idea of reflection in two ways: the view width of the mullion is visually reduced on the inside while the installation depth of the mullion is decreased on the outside. This effect is possible thanks to the use of a glass fin which takes on the static tasks of the traditional aluminium mullion. Architects and planners gain access to a world of new possibilities for creating maximum transparency – even on large surface areas up to a height of 5 metres. Almost limitless design choices are created by the optional lighting of the glass fin with LED, the design of the fin with individually decorated panels, the coating of the aluminium components with especially durable and highly weather-resistant heroal hwr powder coating in all RAL colour shades, the colours of Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier and heroal SD surface finishing.
All designs of the tried-and-tested insulated heroal C 50 curtain wall system deliver excellent results, whether vertical or vertical-bending transom-mullion, transom-transom or mullion-mullion façade. The façade can also be used as a roof area, light roof pyramid or conservatory. Last but not least, the system offers creative freedom thanks to various cover and pressure profiles.
The design-oriented curtain wall system with steel effect
The heroal C 50 ID curtain wall system stands for creative façade design that can provide industrial design solutions. It enables planers, architects and processors to satisfy the highest of demands. The innovative concept for heat insulation with foam-filled insulators and adapted insulator damping, and the continuous seal are standard in the industrial design options.
The heroal C 50 HI curtain wall system achieves the standard required for a passive house with standard triple-glazed insulating glass. This enables sustainable façade concepts with outstanding energy efficiency. Special details in the construction of the system ensure quick, reliable and economical assembly.
The curtain wall system certified for passive houses
heroal C 50 PH is the logical and systematic development of the already highly insulated heroal C 50 HI curtain wall system, with which minimum Uf values of 0.78 W/m2K can be achieved in the transom-mullion design. The system is passive-house-certified thanks to the appropriate façade panel and glazing. The modular heroal insulation zone reduces energy loss to a minimum through the use of innovative materials.
The heroal C 50 FP fire protection curtain wall system requires a CE marking and has been tested in accordance with the EN 13501-2 standard as a curtain wall by the ift Rosenheim testing institute. All fire protection components are concealed within the construction, enabling an invisible transition to façade areas without protective requirements.
The heroal CWW 112 element is a sink-folding window or a parallel exhibition window that was especially developed for the curtain wall system heroal C 50. Depending on the selected fitting, it may be used as sink-folding window or as parallel exhibition window and provides the option of integrating windows without window or casement frames being visible from the outside – for uncompromising design with maximum transparency. Applications that require a retaining device can also be realised thanks to the optional framed glass strip. A completely integrated or fitted motorisation ensures the highest operating comfort.
The new ventilation flap heroal W 72 VF meets the demand for a comfortable and healthy room climate. As an independent, motor-driven ventilation flap, this product supports architects and planners to design controlled, natural ventilation concepts for day and night. Narrow, floor-to-ceiling opening elements integrate almost invisibly into the façade – simply, harmoniously. An individual, customized coating of the surface enables you to set deliberate accentuations of colour. Highly thermal insulated sashes and concealed hinges combine highest functionality with heat insulation and burglary protection.
The heroal W 72 i window system combines architectural design with filigree face widths. heroal W 72 i offers maximum transparency, thermal insulation and elegant design without visible casements and glass strips. This block window system can be used in a variety of ways, including as a facade insert unit. In combination with concealed system fittings it makes for an elegant design.
