Description

A strong 46mm platform ensures robust performance and suitability in a wide range of wind exposures. Awning and casement windows have pocket glazed sashes with sloped or square beads available for fixed lights.

All product profiles including mullions, transoms and 90°, 135° and variable angle corner posts are thermally broken.

  • Thermal efficiency achieved through a thermal break in aluminium profiles — a glass fibre-reinforced nylon (polyamide) interlayer
  • Designed to be used in conjunction with double glazing for a fully effective barrier system
  • Standard glass panel thickness of 24mm, but maximum 32mm available
  • No condensation collector included in frame — option is available
