The modern concept of the panoramic window – one of Le Corbusier’s proposed five points for a new architecture– seeks to maximize the spans and openings of rooms to light and landscape: the window is converted into a large “screen”. The panoramah!® glazing system is a culmination of this widely employed modern design concept, ensuring maximum transparency and performance using advanced technology.
Minimal Frame Window ah!38 FLEXIBILITY
panoramah!® Minimal Frame Window ah!38 FLEXIBILITY is a sliding aluminum casement system that explores the structural properties of glass, enabling the execution of large glazed areas with the use of vertical, minimal (slender) aluminum profiles. Unlike traditional casement systems, glass is panoramah!®’s self-supporting, main component, while the aluminum frame takes on the secondary functions of guiding its sliding motion, providing additional structural reinforcement and ensuring the window’s sealing capacity.
The mechanical and structural properties of panoramah!®’s window panes take away the need for all peripheral elements that compose traditional window systems, by embedding the casement in construction elements such as walls, floor and ceiling, thus enabling an expanded and visually unobstructed perspective. Its 20 mm vertical profiles keep a consistent, unifying and almost imperceptible connection between glass panes, simultaneously allowing for perfect weather proofing whilst fully maximizing the glazed surface area.
From the system’s point of view, the panoramah!® sliding windows’ dimensions are only constrained by the industrial production limit capacity in glass processing. Their design, assembly, and fine-tuned mechanical hardware allow for the perfect handling of up to 27m² sliding glass panels. These structurally bonded glass/aluminum sliding units are kept balanced and centered over a patented rail system, comprised out of a double bearing removable profile, placed inside of the external casement.
- Opening solutions: sliding, vertical sliding, pocket, corner, pivot, tilt-turn, hurricane HVHZ 4
- The window frame is built by means of a structural link between anodized aluminum and reinforced polyamides, avoiding thermal bridging in all components
- Excellent thermal (up to 1.165 W/m².K) and acoustic (up to 41 dB) performance. Security of RC2.
- Robust, 1mtr long bearing profiles, very easily maintained or replaced, support loads of up to 1.800 kg/ml, can support an unlimited number of panes made out of up to 60mm double or triple glazed units, vaccum glazed units, which can even be motorized.
