Multi-chambered options for outer and sash frame profiles are now available for all three of Synseal’s market-leading 70mm PVC-U window systems – Legend, Shield and SynerJy – to extend customer choice. These new frame profile configurations are thermally efficient and can achieve A-rated WERs when glazed with 28mm DG units without the need for Low Iron glass.
Previously only available for the popular Legend system, multi-chambered profile designs have generated strong fabricator demand and so Synseal has invested in design and extrusion of multi-chambered sash profiles to complete the offerings for the company’s chamfered Shield and sculptured ovolo SynerJy systems.
“We always listen to our fabricator partners and further development of our proven Shield and SynerJy systems was a logical step to take,” comments Steve Brown, Synseal’s Products & Customer Service Director. “Many of our customers still favour 1st generation triple-chambered profiles with traditional steel reinforcement”, continues Steve, “while others adopt the 2nd generation approach of triple-chambered profiles and thermally efficient Plastic Thermal Reinforcements (PTRs) made of 100% recycled PVC-U. Our new multi-chambered solutions deliver excellent U-values and do not require reinforcement and this specification is our very latest 3rd generation systems offering. All these different technical approaches have merit and we are happy to support whatever profile specifications our fabricator partners wish to champion.”
Synseal’s Legend, Shield and SynerJy systems can all deliver the latest A+ and Certass A* WERs and the multi-chambered profile solutions will typically secure a U-value of 1.3W/m2K using warm edge spacer bar with Total+/Argon/Low Iron glass. However, the ability to achieve competitive A-rated WERs without the need to use Low Iron glass is a big advantage for Synseal 70mm PVC-U windows fabricated with multi-chambered outer and sash frame profiles in combination.
