More about this product

Vitrocsa not only invented the minimalist window, but has also developed innovative expertise in this domain.The many systems and solutions developed in-house guarantee original products, all manufactured to Swiss Made quality standards.

The basic guillotine window comprises two vertically sliding frames. Vitrocsa offers multiple fixed and mobile configurations, either hidden or visible.

The structure is anodised 25 micron aluminium alloy, in a natural colour finish. As an option, the thermolacquered or anodised versions are available in an infinite choice of colours. The width of the vertical profile is 18 mm. The system operates using a high-precision counterweight operation for ultra-simple manageability. Various button locking system options are available, and the system can be motorised.

The guillotine frames mean that almost boundless heights can be reached, whilst retaining the same quality and aesthetic criteria as other products. Perfectly balanced, the moveable panes (maximum 500 kg per glass) can be manipulated with just a few grams of thrust, either manually or motorised. They can operate in one of two ways:

  • a system with two identical glass panes which counter-balance one another;
  • a counterweight system on the side (integrated into the nishes) which enable an in nite range of con gurations.

RANGES

The Vitrocsa guillotine system is available in several ranges:

TH+ / Thermal insulation and large surface areas
Using 32 or 44 mm double or triple glazing, the TH+ range allows for guillotine window versions of up to 500 kg per leaf. The excellent insulating properties of the profiles, in combination with the glass, enable current low energy consumption standards to be met.

3001 / Flagship range
The 3001 range allows for sliding window surfaces of up to 6 m² with 26 mm double glazing. The range, invented in 1996, is considered the brand’s flagship product, which launched its name.

FINISHES , DRAINAGE CHAMBER AND TEST

OPTIONS

MOTORISATION
The motorisation system is built into the architectural design, allowing for minimal interference, and simple, quiet opening.
The motorisation system is fully hidden in the top part of our Vitrocsa frame and only requires a height of 12 cm. The maximum driving force is 180 N for a maximum weight of 1200 kg per motor. The maximum motion speed is 167 mm/s-1 and slows when a second leaf is driven.
The system has an automatic electrical closure which is compatible with all home automation opening systems: digicode, push-button, badge reader, etc. To ensure complete safety, the system stops when it meets an obstacle.
