In any conventional system, drilling holes in the mullion to allow passage for cables to the inside of the building is a must. These holes need and can only be sealed using silicone.

 

A simple calculation example gives a good common sense view on this approach: assume a building with a façade counting 1.000 glass units. This project would then have a potential risk of 1.000 leakages. There is no solution to get this connection tight. Note that additional problems arise when the cable is moving during the installation, typically tearing the silicone connection. Assuming 970 miracles made possible, which would mean only 3% cable inserts are not perfect…or 30 leakages….the curtain wall would then be a real catastrophe for its prior and main function : creating an air and watertight shield between the outside and the inside of a building.

 

The H60 patented solution is clear :

  1. No perforation of the curtain wall mullions

  2. No silicone : installation independent from the weather conditions

  3. No risk for air and/or water leakages and infiltration

  4. Installation from the inside: independent from the weather conditions

  5. Installation from the inside: perfect quality control for BMS system

  6. The cable connectors are situated at the inside of the building and not in a wet glazing pocket of the curtain wall

  7. In case of glass breakage: replacement from the inside and not costly pose/depose working from scaffoldings at the outside

In case of technical failure of the cable or connector system: inspection and repair from the inside of the building and not costly working from scaffoldings at the outside
