Research indicated that a thermally efficient future-proof façade system was required, utilising off-site manufacture and value engineering solutions that actively seek to reduce material content.
Comar 9P.i high performance framing offers two options of construction – ladder frame or mitre frame. The windows and doors can be hung directly from the frame, reducing the need for additional outer frames and creating a truly integrated solution.
Building typologies differ from refurbishment to new build, therefore Comar 9P.i offers profile widths from 78, 100 and 120mm creating greater design flexibility.
There are three levels of thermal performance – standard, multi-chamber and multi-chamber thermal foam – creating U-values of between 1.6 and 1.0 for a typical grid size with opening vents.
Comar 9P.i has slim 65mm sightlines to meet architecturally demanding aesthetics.
Glazing lines are flush, maintaining consistent lines for a sleek external façade providing straight interfacing with walls, internal floors and partitions. Consideration is also given for plaster-lines with profiles to cater for differing situations.
Comar 9P.i windows can be open-in or open-out, side, top or bottom hung and a tilt and turn option, offering unobtrusive ventilation.
Comar 5P.i vertical sliding windows and EY219 horizontal windows can also be integrated into the Comar 9P.i framing.
Glazing sizes have been catered for up to 62mm, meaning that future requirements for high performing acoustic or triple glazed projects can be specified.
