Description

The window frame has a large 44mm platform to ensure strength and suitability in exposed environments. A facing sash is used as standard. Mullions and transoms have internally projecting stiffening boxes for improved aesthetics.

Designed to be used in conjunction with double glazing for total thermal efficiency, windows can accept IGUs of up to 32mm thickness, thus allowing for interior pleated or Venetian blinds.

Key Features
  • A thermally efficient range of high performance windows and doors for residential and architectural applications
  • Thermal efficiency achieved through a thermal break in aluminium profiles
  • Designed to be used in conjunction with double glazing for a fully effective barrier system (32mm maximum IGU)
