Using high performance glazing systems and minimal windows together for a highly glazed design.
minimal windows® systems can used to transform dark environments into well lit and functional living spaces. These systems can be used in any kind of area such as bedroom, living room or kitchen.
Slim framed or frameless glazing systems introduce plenty of natural light into the internal living spaces. A range of options are possible with different size glazing systems for any project, including roof glazing and frameless structural glass. Rooflights can be fixed structural glass or automated opening rooflights to access the roof or enhance ventilation. A ventilation system can be useful, especially for the kitchen to avoid the food smell, smoke or humidity.
MARS Sliding Rooflight
This specialised and innovative rooflight system adds great ventilation and is good to combine with minimal windows® as it allows the natural light to stretch further into the home. MARS grants access to the roof terrace and can be used to create a modern roof garden.
The rooflight can be fully automated and the motor can accommodate up to 320kg with the standard motor, but depending on the project a larger motor can be used for larger rooflights. A weather bar is fitted to ensure rain runs off the system regardless of the angle.
HERA Sliding Box Rooflight
This sliding box rooflight system is completely weathertight and suitable for any extreme climates. It has a thermally broken perimeter and can be specified with an integrated weather sensor. It allows access to roof gardens and can be automated, with two motors available depending on the size and space.
The aluminium system is minimal and be finished in any RAL colour. Both MARS and HERA are very suitable for smart homes.
Combination of minimal windows and glass walls
Glass walls give a completely uninterrupted view from the stunning houses. When minimal windows® are specified within glass walls, a fully glazed design is achieved. The glass panes within glass walls are connected using slim silicone joints and can be specified in triple glazing.
This makes them a good choice to pair with minimal windows 4+ triple glazed sliding glass doors. The 4+ system can achieve larger sizes and is more thermally efficient with lower Uw values. The standard 2-point thrust lever locking system protects the luxury houses with an impressive security performance.
