Architectural-grade product made of extruded aluminum in minimum 6063-T6/T54 alloy with polyamide thermal break. Assembled by rolling and crimping with a minimum 400 kg shear test. Typically used for fixed window application without sashes.
This product is designed as per rain screen principle, with a pressure equalization chamber to prevent water infiltration.
Vertical structural members are available in different widths, 25mm (1″), 41mm (1 ½”) and 64mm (2 ½”) depending on the structural or architectural needs of the project.
Available frame depths:
- 3″ (75 mm) – 8530 Series
- 4″ (100 mm) – 8540 Series
- 6″ (150 mm) – 8560 Series
This window allows the installation of double or triple sealed units.
Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) options: 25mm (1”), 32mm (1 ¼”) and 38mm (1 ½”).
Specifications for glass or spandrel panel at the professional’s choice.
All sealed units are installed from the inside with a mechanical snap-in air barrier and water barrier moulding.
Air and water tightness is ensured by dry seals in co-extruded polypro / Santoprene, EPDM or silicone depending on their function and position in the system.
