More about this product

Design and innovation
LUMEAL Minimal, 100mm module, is a minimalist sliding system with a concealed opening sash. Its minimalist design ensures an 8 to 14% gain in glass surface area depending on the application.
LUMEAL Minimal can be used to create different opening configurations combining a fixed section and sliding section, associated with a slim central meeting stile.

A solution for your low energy building projects
LUMEAL Minimal offers a real solution for low energy building projects due to its very low air permeability and outstanding thermal performance.
1,39 m3/h/m2 (under a pressure of 100 Pascals).

LUMEAL, an exclusive design
This attractive and effective solution is created using minimalist lines and an exclusive design.
The design optimises natural light. The slider has a distinct refined finish with no overlapping of profiles and concealed drainage. Square-jointed assembly also helps to refine the structure.
The concealed opening sash principle is used to create a more attractive finish. Only the frame remains visible with a 68mm aluminium sight line (in relation to a 150mm conventional sliding system) which maximises the glass surface area by +8%.
Several exclusive design handles are available to customise the slider.
