Elegance 52 VL

Vertical lining

Elegance 52 VL solutions create an external emphasis on the vertical aspect, by minimising the glass-to-glass visual of the adjacent line.

Elegance 52 VL description

  • Based on the connection and drainage principles of Elegance 52 ST, the Elegance 52 VL solutions are available in 2 different forms.
  • Each provide emphasis on the vertical line by use of projecting feature caps that can be further accentuated by colour.
  • The first form uses a silicone seal to minimise the joint between glass panes on the adjacent line, with an EPDM thermal break that doubles as a bond breaker.
  • The second uses a dry gasket for a consistent external aesthetic, in conjunction with standard thermal break profiles from the Elegance 52 ST system
  • Depending on the glass pane dimensions and external wind loads, safety pieces may be required to ensure the glass is adequately sealed against the backed structure on the non-emphasised line where there is no pressure plate or cover cap.

Performances

Air Tightness

A4

Air Tightness

Air tightness refers to the amount of air that will travel through a window or door system in its closed position, both under positive and negative pressure.

Water Tightness

RE1200

Water Tightness

The test applies specified amounts of water spray to the outside face of the window (combination) while incrementally increasing the air pressure. The result defines the test pressure, time and position of any water infiltration.

Wind Resistance

3000 Pa

Wind Resistance

The test applies a series of positive and negative test air pressures. Measurements and inspections are made to asses relative frontal deflection and resistance to damage from wind loads.
