Thermally insulated windows and fixed glazing with an unparalleled slim line facing width of 55mm (window/overlapping casements) and 23mm for glazing become a reality with the new forster unico XS profile system.
Filigree sash bars and slim line frames with excellent structural properties allow for 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/tilt, casements and outward opening window right up to individual and curved constructions can be accomplished with ease with the flexible profile system. The possible installation of filling elements up to 60mm for triple insulating glass, for example, makes it easy to achieve very low U values and excellent sound insulation values.
Despite its slim appearance, the forster unico XS system does not compromise on safety and security (burglary-resistance RC2). An all-round locking mechanism and three all-round sealing levels guaranteeing an increased level of tightness will ensure that you feel safe. Components from forster unico XS profiles also achieve excellent insulation values and have obtained the MINERGIE certification for low-energy consumption buildings in Switzerland. Made from 100 per cent steel and designed without additional synthetic insulation materials, the profiles are particularly durable, ecological and sustainable.
