Materials

Aluminium profiles are extruded from aluminium alloy 6060T6, T5, or T4 complying with the recommendations of BS EN 12020-2 / BS EN 755-Parts 1 to 9. Polyamide thermal breaks are produced from glass reinforced nylon sections designed to withstand temperatures in excess of 200°C, allowing the sections to be powder coated after thermally breaking.


Construction

Frame members are mitre cut at 45°, corners are reinforced with extruded aluminium crimping cleats and corner braces, and a secure joint is formed by pneumatically crimping into the extruded crimping cleat. Mullion and transom bars are square cut shaped and fixed securely to the frame by means of stainless steel screws and fixing cleats. All frame joints are sealed during construction against entry of water using Metal Technology’s two-part adhesive. Metal Technology recommend that only A2 or A4 Austenitic (300 series/class 70) stainless steel fixing screws are used in the assembly of their products.


Finishes

The range of sections can be provided in either of the following ranges of finishes:

  1. Anodised to BS 1615 or BS 3987 or BS EN 12373-1
  2. Powder organic coated to BS 6496 or BS EN 12206-1

This system can accommodate a different colour finish internally to that used externally. Metal Technology's powder coating is produced to Qualicoat standards.


Glazing

This system offers internally glazed sashes and can accommodate glazing units from 24mm to 34mm units. Fixed panes may be externally or internally glazed.

Thermal Performance

Metal Technology’s  range, in conjunction with the correct glass specification, is designed to aid compliance with the latest thermal requirements of the current building regulations. The polyamide thermal break profiles have been specifically designed to minimise heat transfer across the window profiles.

Thermal performance is further improved through the introduction of specially designed thermal gaskets and foam profiles. These reduce radiation heat loss across the air cavities within the window profiles to provide additional thermal enhancement.

The following table, based on a standard commercial GGF window configuration and warm edge spacers, demonstrates how such improved U-frame values then contribute to improving the overall thermal performance of a complete window.

Metal Technology can provide tailored U-value calculations using their dedicated estimating software to calculate overall project average window U-values for their full range of systems.
