Project details :

With an extenstion project and upgrades to existing systems in place, the Institute of Education in Dublin was phased in two phases. With a wealth of experiences with fabricators, architects and other consultants involved WICONA products were always a natural choice. 

The inital work using our WICLINE aluminium windows and doors was completed in summer of 2015. The second phase of the extension was completed between February 2016 and September 2016 using our WICTEC 50 Curtain Walling Solutions. 

The result is a streamlined and stylish building, seamlessly merging the older brick building with a modernised glass façade letting in more natural light and beauty.

Window systems

WICLINE 90SG

As an attractive complement for curtain walls the integration sash WICLINE 90SG provides efficient ventilation, if requested also fully automated. This all-glass window gives full options as a projecting top-hung sash or as a parallel outward opening sash and can be integrated flush with the glass pane level in WICTEC 50SG structural glazing curtain walling or in stick systems with exterior pressure profiles. For an optimum thermal insulation WICLINE 90SG can be equipped with double or triple glazing. Using standard glass without glass step leads to an economy of cost and improved safety.
