Thermally Broken Aluminium Framed Glazed Folding Partition System Technical Information

General Technical Information

  Thermally broken aluminium framed system.
  Performance group 'C' to DIN 18055.
  The bottom guide track can be supplied with or without stop and depending upon choice of track can be recessed into the floor.
  I0mm of height tolerance can be taken up without affecting the soundproofing, draft seal or operation.
  The panels are locked in position by means of aluminium locking bars operating against the top and bottom tracks. The travel of these bars is 24mm. Polyamide end caps are fitted to the locking bars to prevent metal on metal contact.
  Each panel can be locked in any partly open position
  Can be supplied with an integrated separately pass door fitted with proprietary handles, lock and profile cylinder.


  4 Wheel top hung trolley which are universally jointed to spread the load evenly or 2 wheel bottom rolling trolley arranged in such a way that dust or dirt does not effect performance
  The trolleys are scaled heat and cold resistant glass fibre reinforced Polyamide to ensure very quiet running.
  The load bearing capacity is 160kg for bottom rolling and 200 kg for top hung


  Glass unit thickness up to 30mm is possible
  The glazing method is in accordance with the general code of practice for glazing
  Replacement of the glazing at a later date is possible without problems

Technical Data

  The construction is flush with the surface therefore there are no protruding running or directional tracks
  Can be opened to the inside or outside and is available with a separate or attached turning panel (through 180°).
  The profiles have a very narrow visible projection width allowing a very large percentage of glazed surface
  The panel is 50min thick allowing a maximum panel width of 1000mm.
  Up to 10mm expansion compensation that is made possible due to wide closing rebates meaning that the screen remains impenetrable and continues to function correctly under hot and cold conditions.
  Vertical sealing is by means of a double EPDM seal. Horizontal sealing is by means of a brush seal with a PVC web on the outside and an EPDM seal on the inside
  Concealed glass rebate drainage below resulting in a reduction of pressure therefore safe drainage is guaranteed (no drainage slits in the visible surface). This design corresponds to the glass manufacturers regulations. The ground sill has a large drainage antechamber for a controlled dripping of water outwards with no visible drainage holes

Planning Guide


  • Thermally broken profile system
  • Unit thickness of 50mm
  • Performance Group 'C'
  • Bottom rolling as standard, top hung recommended for balcony units


  • Choose the number of panels.
  • Panel sizes are dependant on the type of glass and their width and height. If necessary, the number of panels must be increased.
  • Choose colour powder coated to RAL or anodised to Euras


  • Decide on the external frame dimensions in relation to to the structural opening, making provision for any necessary installation clearances
  • Decide on floor track
  • Choose colour powder coated to RAL or anodised. to Euras
