Thermally insulated windows and fixed glazing, with an unparalleled slimline facing width of 55mm (window/overlapping casements) and 23mm for glazing, can become a reality with the new forster unico XS profile system. Filigree sash bars and slimline frames with excellent structural properties allow the implementation of modern, large area modules for new builds, and particularly delicate sash bar elements for old and historic building renovations.
The steel profiles offer a broad portfolio of application possibilities and afford plenty of scope for creativity; everything from different window opening variants, such as turn, turn and tilt, casements and outward opening windows, right up to individual and curved constructions can easily be accomplished with the flexible profile system. The possible installation of filling elements measuring up to 60mm for triple-insulating glass, for example, makes it easy to achieve very low U-values and excellent sound insulation credentials.
Despite its slim appearance, the forster unico XS system does not compromise safety and security, as it comes with burglary-resistant RC2. An all-round locking mechanism and three sealing levels increase tightness, thereby ensuring that customers feel safe.
Components used in forster unico XS profiles also achieve excellent insulation values and have obtained the Minergie certification from Ecolabel Index for low-energy consumption buildings in Switzerland. Made from 100% steel and designed without additional synthetic insulation materials, the profiles are particularly durable, ecological and sustainable.
