Architectural Aluminium and Glass Ltd were appointed to design, manufacture and install the Curtain Walling Screens, Windows, Doors, Louvres and Sloped Rooflights at the newly built Ysgol-Y-Graig School in Merthyr Tydfil.

The School is a two storey Primary School which was built on the former Vaynor and Penderyn School site. The School will accommodate at least 240 pupils including nursery places for the local community.

The Curtain Walling Screens were fabricated from the Technal MX52 CAPPED system, the Windows from the Technal FY65 range and the Doors from the Technal STII range.

The Louvre panels were glazed into the Window system with insect mesh to the rear. Side hung vents were located internally behind the Louvres within a specialised Technal outer frame, brought into the Design by AAAG to provide purge ventilation.

The re-design also provided a more visually appealing finish internally which pleased the Main Contractor, Architect and Client.

A sloped Technal MX Curtain Walling Roof, including actuated MX Roof vents were installed to provide a light and airy space for the students.
