minimal Sash Window System
The minimal aluminium framing of the minimal windows® large sliding glass doors is also available as a large, contemporary guillotine window. This sash window system creates large horizontal openings for double height glass elements.
The minimal sash windows can be specified up to 4.5m wide with the minimal aluminium surround framing. The possible height of the opening depends on the width, with each vertical sliding element available up to 12m2.
The Guillotine windows is the perfect addition to any contemporary architectural design as they are able to slide open at the centre, creating a unique opening. Due to the large sizes of these guillotine windows, it is the perfect system to create a full glass façade for double height spaces.
Thanks to the full thermal break within the frame and the high specification of glazing used, these guillotine windows have high levels of thermal insulation, solar protection and transparency. A number of different glass options are available to provide you with the performance you need.
The horizontal frame is either 21mm or 26mm (depending on whether you opt for triple or double glazing). All locking is integrated meaning no added framing is necessary. The large sizes and slim framing provide a perfectly clear and large glass façade with no obstruction to any views.
To maintain the slim horizontal transoms, a multi-point locking system is integrated directly into the profiles. This is operated by either a thrust lever handle or removable key. Alternatively, electro-magnetic locking can be specified.
The windows are available as a two-pane or a three-pane window.
The two-pane configuration allows the base panel to slide up over a fixed pane.
The three-pane configuration can either open at the centre, or at the top and bottom simultaneously.
The vertically sliding sash windows can be designed with automated motors for electrical openings or counter weighed for a smooth manual opening action.
