  • Alitherm 800 Window

    Description

    This System proven to Kitemark standards can be used in a wide range of domestic and commercial situations as replacement windows for existing buildings, and for installation into new buildings with a range of profiles to suit those individual needs.

    Alitherm 800 profiles utilise Smart's innovative polyamide thermal break which creates a barrier between the cold air outside and the warm air inside which reduces thermal transmittance and increases the overall U Value.

     

    Materials

    • Aluminium: 6060 T6 alloy constructed of aluminium alloy extrusion to BS EN 755-9 and BS EN 12020.
    • Sealings: E.P.D.M. according to DIN 7863, TV 110, NFP 85301, ISO 3994. Tested and approved according to an artificial ageing test of "Plexi glass" combined with vulcanised rubber.
    • Co-extruded profiles: according to DIN 7863, TV 110, BFP 85301, ISO 3994, tested and approved according to an artificial ageing test of "Plexi glass" combined with vulcanised rubber.
    • Thermal break: polyamide strips PA 6.6.25% reinforced with glass fibre.
    • Radiation barrier: polyamide strips PA 6.6.25% reinforced with glass fibre.

    Finishing

    • Electrostatic Powder coating: according to the guidelines of A..P.A.-Qualicoat in most of the current RAL-colours.
    • The composed profiles (with thermal break) can be coated with different inner and outer colours (dual colour) including metallic, Smart's Sensations textured and Alchemy anodised effect finishes.
    • Glass shall conform to the requirements of BS 6262 and part N of the Building Regulations for Thickness and Type.
    • Profiles and gaskets will accommodate double and triple glazed units of thickness 28mm.

    Construction

    • Frame members are mitre cut at 45 degrees and faces coated with a suitable gap sealer using internal extruded aluminium corner cleats together with a gluing compound.
    • Members are abutted and securely jointed by mechanical or crimped means.
    • Transoms and mullions are end milled to shape and mechanically secured to frame members by means of self tapping screws driven in screw receptacles in the profile or by means of internal cleats.
    • All mechanical joints shall be sealed against entry of water.
    • All fixings used in construction shall be either stainless steel, aluminium alloy or other suitable corrosion resistant materials.

    Hardware

    • All opening vents are hung on concealed stainless steel variable angled friction stays and fitted with espagnolette type locking handles.
    • To limit the opening restrictor stays can be fitted.

    Glazing

    • Aluminium clip in beads and flexible gaskets inside and out meeting the requirements of BS 6262, Code of Practice for Glazing for Buildings.
    • Double or triple glazed units can be used in this system with either colour tinted glass, solar controlled or acoustic glass.
