Key Features / Performance Characteristics

  • 102mm thick commercial grade sliding window, incorporates bold frame lines and thick (strong) sashes that can carry thick heavy glass, including double glazing.
  • The perimeter frame designed to make installation into brick veneer and cavity brick easier with built-in nailing fins (weather bars).
  • Extra strong sashes allow large sash windows to be fabricated for high wind load areas.
  • Double sash design with the external sash fixed.
  • Both fixed and opening sashes can be installed, replaced or reglazed from inside.
  • Large variety of sliding window combinations possible (SF, FS, SFS, SS or FSSF) with and without highlights and or lowlights.
  • Sliding windows can be fitted with surface or mortice deadlocks.
  • The Series 462 sliding window sashes run on heavy duty wheel carriages.
  • Flyscreens can be fitted. When there is no requirement for flyscreens, frame is fitted with cavity closers so there are no unwanted recesses.
  • Co-extruded PVC sill seal keeps water out of the system.
  • Built-in proprietary ball valve drainage to transfer any water that may get into the drainage trough to the tubular sump sill.
  • This sliding window will resist up to 300Pa water infiltration and comply with air conditioning requirements.
