Key Features / Performance Characteristics

  • High performance architectural sliding window system designed for high rise apartments.
  • The extra strong sashes in this sliding window allow large sash windows to be fabricated for high wind load areas.
  • Double sash design with a fixed internal sash.
  • Both fixed and opening sashes can be installed into this sliding window, replaced and/or reglazed from inside the building. This could be an important feature in elevated situations.
  • There are a large variety of sliding window combinations possible (SF, FS, SFS or FSSF) with and without highlights/lowlights.
  • Sliding windows can be fitted with surface or mortice deadlocks.
  • Sashes run on custom lowline heavy duty double bogey wheel carriages.
  • As the moving sash is on the outside, we achieve very high water resistance - 600Pa. This window also complies with the air conditioning requirements of the Australian Standard.
  • Unwanted head recess is fitted with snap-in flat closer to ensure that the clean looks are maintained and air infiltration is improved.
