Specification data - Aluminium window units

Standard product features


  • Thermally efficient Polyamide Insulation (P.i) thermally broken aluminium vertical sliding window system, designed for new or refurbishment projects.
  • Slim aluminium profiles maximize glazed area.
  • The aluminium profiles are extruded separately, then rolled together with 22 mm polyamide strip providing an extremely effective thermal break to ensure that buildings are kept warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • Frames are constructed with mitre joints with an inserted spring-loaded Monticelli cleat.
  • The slide and tilt function of both sashes is created through Torso Balances which are designed to suit the window size and glass specified. The Torso Balances are installed into specifically designed chambers to allow smooth operation.
  • Glazing is achieved using specific EPDM gaskets and internal beads, which snap-fit and create a water-tight barrier.
  • The window has a sash lock mechanism, which maintains security and provides trickle ventilation, and a lockable restrictor at 100 mm increments.
  • Weather performance is provided with brush and bubble seals to the whole perimeter of each sash. An additional buffer seal is incorporated into the outer frame to increase weather resistance.
