WINDOWEXTRA Barn has the edge Situated on the edge of open countryside with stunning panoramic views, this stone-built farmhouse uses a number of innovative products from leading aluminium systems supplier, Reynaers. » » THANKS TO A VARIETY OF aluminium window and doors, large expanses of glazing streamline the transition from interior to exterior spaces of Burnedge Barn, offering a feeling of freedom and a connection to the farmland in Grasscroft, Oldham. Exceptionally narrow frames and superior performance characterise Slimline 68, the window system launched to the trade just last year. The outward opening window was used by fabricator Dekko Windows as it has been designed specifically to meet the needs of UK homeowners, allowing them to choose a product that gives them maximum daylight access whilst keeping their properties warm and secure. With no compromise on thermal efficiency or weather resistance, the system is designed to be timeless whilst complementing both contemporary and – as in the case of Burnedge Barn – the most traditional style homes. SL 68 can achieve a Window Energy Rating of A++ and a U-value of 1.0 W/m2K with triple glazing. When it comes to double glazing, the Window Energy Rating is A, with a U-value of 1.4 W/m2K. Rebecca Cope, Marketing Manager at Reynaers, said: “This level of market-leading performance brings extra value to fabricators and installers, offering a strong selling point. What’s more, SL 68’s security meets PAS24 and Secured by Design standards, as well as achieving Class 4 air tightness. 64 » M AR 2018 » CL EARVI E W- UK . C O M “The strength of the aluminium frame and the clever design make it possible to create windows with large panes of glass. Ease of maintenance and durability make it the perfect window for fabricators, installers and homeowners too.” The window has a wind-resistance rating of E2400, and water-resistance of E1050. As the name suggests, SL 68 has a frame depth of 68mm, and can carry a maximum glass thickness of 43mm. The CS 77 French Style door and the CF 68 bifold door were also used by Dekko Windows on the project to help bring the outside in. Answering the needs of contemporary architecture, the Concept Folding 68 aluminium sliding folding door combines design, comfort and space efficiency. The wide range of possibilities to unfold numerous glass panes makes the borders between the interior and exterior disappear. The system comes with profiles, gaskets and gear combinations that enable fabricators to assemble the selected option more easily, and with more efficiency and accuracy. Major advantages in efficiency and flexibility in the fabrication of the folding system are achieved by its versatility, as a relatively low number of profiles offer a maximum number of configurations – all offering inward and outward opening options with the same profiles and accessories. The vent profile requires only one gasket typ )͠ȁѥɽ͠)́ɕեɕ%ѽ䁽ѕɅѕ)ɥѼѡ)ٕ́ɔɕեɕȁɅѥ̸)]ѠѡхѥЁѡȁ)ѕ̰Ё́ѱɕѡЁѡ)ЁٕЁ䁉ɕɥѕѕ)ѡѡ́ٔхQ́ͥ)ɕ́مѥٔхͥɽ)ݡ́ЁͥѼхѡє)݅ͥє%Ёͼ́ɥѽ́Ѽ)ͥ䁅ЁѽɅ́ɕձѥɽ͕)٥́Ѽٕȁѥəɵ)ȁ݅ѕȁѥѹ̸)Qɥѡ́Յ)ȁ́ɥѽ́Ѽ)ѡɵЁɅɕ䰁ݥѠѡ)ѼѼѡͥȁѡͥ)ѡեQȁ́م)ٕ䁍ȁ͠ѡɔ́ѡ)ͥ䁽٥ɕЁȁȁѡ)ѕɥȁѡѕɥȰѼəѱ䁵э)ѡե)%׊eɔɥѽȁȁхȰ(ĀĀ䰁ɕ幅ͱёɕ幅̸)ȁ͕ѡݕͥє)ܹɕ幅̹լ
