Inroduction

With the MCR range, Technal offers architects vast creative scope for designing curtain walls or contoured façades with soft lines and elegant shapes. Italian opening lights integrate seamlessly into the range and cannot be seen from the outside when closed.
The MCR Horizontal Line façade gives the curtain wall a totally new appearance. As its name suggests, the horizontal lines of this façade are emphasized to create a sense of perspective. This thoroughly contemporary effect provides an excellent response to the needs of modern building designers.
