Alfresco Glass Screens by Clear Edge Glass Systems

Alfresco Glass Screens are retractable glass screens commonly used in high-end outdoor living spaces. Unex are an exclusive supplier for Clear Edge Glass Systems.

With aluminium horizontal tracks in the roof and floor holding the vertically spanning glass panes, there are no vertical posts to obstruct the view. The retractable glass panes slide along the track, pivot at the exit point and completely stack away to the side. All aluminium can be finished in a range of colours to suit the project.

Key Features
  • Designed for standard heights up to 2800mm from floor level
  • Fully retractable around corners and can be used in multiple configurations
  • Wide range of finish options — can be powder coated in all standard NZ colours
  • Accepts 10mm, 12mm and 15mm thick safety toughened glass
  • Flush track option available — non-trip hazard
  • Locking mechanism available — an additional safety feature
  • No interlocking endcaps between panels
  • Built-in drainage channel option on inside of bottom track

Scope of Use

The Alfresco Glass Screens by Clear Edge can be used in residential applications to enclose balcony areas, pool houses and outdoor entertaining areas, create outdoor rooms around patio areas, and as servery windows. These are also used in some non-residential applications, such as shop fronts, conference centres, etc.

This screen system can be configured in multiple ways — straight, angled or curved, around corners, open inwards or outwards, move left, right or even both ways.

The standard powders used by Unex Systems — the Interpon powder coat range — can be used right down to sea level, provided the care and maintenance instructions are adhered to.

Limitations on Use

The Alfresco Glass Screens are a very versatile system that can be used in multiple configurations and situations, however some limitations are as follows:

  • Not designed to be used as a waterproof line of a building
  • Maximum height allowable is 2800mm
  • Maximum panel width is 850mm
  • Not suitable in some very high wind speeds
  • Requires a structural member above to support the weight of the hanging glass panes
