Facade systems


Filigree look without any change in appearance to the inner mullion and transom gaskets Ideal for vertical and polygon façades, sloped glazing and spatial structures Individual design thanks to a wide range of profile geometries for the structural and glazing profiles Uf for standard version up to 1.2W/m²K infill thickness 3 - 51mm Reliable glass load transmission (up to 4 kN), with adapted transom-joint technology Overlapping and secure drainage at the cross point, without mechanical mullion processing, ensures tried-and-tested impermeability Broad selection of profiles enables economic adaptation to structural requirements, with the additional option of internal reinforcement Glazing from outside featuring single- and/or two-part pressure and cover profiles Design options with concealed or visible screw fixture Extensive solutions for structure junctions and conservatories
