We revolutionize the traditional wood window, adapting the latest technical advances to create a high-performance design that is both elegant and innovative. Its key technical breakthrough: the self-supporting glass is uninterrupted by any frame, becoming a sheer transparent plane. This solution maximizes the window´s open area, which is completely unobstructed by any structural element.
The double or triple-glazed plane is mounted on the inside of the wood frame, and is fully operable in a variety of options (tilt-and-turn, sliding and hinged). The system allows unbroken openings up to six meters long (19´8´´). The glazing fits hermetically over the wood frame using the most sophisticated technology in hardware and seals. Triple gaskets assure maximum thermal and acoustical performance and weather tightness, meeting the highest European standards. The triple-glaze version meets the performance criteria for the “passive house”. The interior glazing is trimmed in black, white or a variety of baked enamel colors. The wood, obtained from forests with sustainable management, is a high-strength and stable laminate. It is finished in low-maintenance varnishes guaranteed for up to 15 years. This innovative concept results in a design that stands out for its simplicity, quality of detail and elegance, combining the warmth of wood and the contemporary appeal of uninterrupted glass.
OUR GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES
The window is custom-made in shop to client‘s requirements and installed on-site by our specialists. Double layers of laminated and tempered glass are mounted around a silicone spacer to create an insulating air cavity between them. The assembly is fixed to our custom aluminum profile, which also receives the hardware, including a locking pull with a high-security mechanism. Three separate gaskets assure energy efficiency. The wall frame is laminated chestnut from sustainably-harvested forests.
THE GLASS: A DECISIVE FACTOR
In an installation with coplanar glazing, the minimum glass composition is always: 4+4 / 24 air chamber / 6 tempered with 51mm color perimeter border.
In the case of a standard installation, the configuration for the operable glazing is maintained, while fixed glazing can have a minimum configuration from 16 mm in the air chamber.
It is always possible to selectively use low-emissive glass in the glazing assenbly in order to gain added passive energy savings.
Solar factor (FS)
It expresses the total percentage of energy, and therefore of heat, that passes through said glazing.
A glazing with an FS 42 only passes 42% of the heat from the sun’s rays (39% in direct transmission + 3% of heat absorbed and re-sent inwards by the glazing).
The remaining 85 % is rejected, either by direct reflection (30%), or by the absorption and
reemission of the glazing to the outside (28%).
Light Transmission (TL) and Light Reflection (RL)
It expresses the percentage pf light, of visible rays, transmitted by the glazing. Therefore a glazing of TL 71 allows 71% of the light to pass, and the rest is reflected or absorbed by the glazing. The light reflection follows the same reasoning, is the persentage of light reflected by the glazing of RL 12 reflects 12 % of sunlight, the rest transmits it or absorbs the glazing.
