TECHNAL LAUNCHES HIGH PERFORMANCE WINDOW SYSTEM INCORPORATING FRESH, INTELLIGENT AND CONTEMPORARY FENESTRATION DESIGN
Architectural aluminium systems specialist, Technal, has launched its latest and most innovative window system to date, bringing a host of technical advancements and modern, intelligent design to enhance almost any fenestration project.
The SOLEAL window has been developed to offer exceptional security, thermal, acoustic and weather performance, and unparalleled aesthetics from one single system that is available in numerous configurations.
The system uses a 65mm deep profile and common components to give architects and contractors the benefit of an extensive choice of construction options combined with ease of specification and maximum efficiency in manufacturing.
For even greater design freedom, the SOLEAL window can be provided in two distinctive casement styles – a stylish ‘visible’ opening frame with an infill up to 52mm for a contemporary finish, or a patented ‘minimalist’ opening frame with slim, subtle sight lines that reduce the visible aluminium and a glazing infill of up to 42mm.
Applications for the new window system are diverse, demonstrating its versatility and fresh, modern design – from education and healthcare buildings to apartments, office schemes, retail developments, sports centres, and custodial facilities.
SOLEAL has a number of patented technical features – modular door locking for the balcony door, the clip-on trim for the ‘minimal’ option, the expanding corner cleat and the turn-around gasket for improved performance and manufacture. Other innovative advancements include:
SOLEAL is a complete window system which can be specified in multiple configurations giving architects and contractors the flexibility to meet both project-specific requirements and to have a number of visually-consistent window types on a single building. These include:
The SOLEAL high performance window is fully compatible with other Technal products, including GEODE-MX curtain walling, MODAL low rise glazing and the SOLEAL door system for seamless interfaces, ease of specification, cost efficiency, and to achieve a uniform appearance across a façade.
