The unitized system is fully glazed and sealed off site. Gaskets and glazing beads are installed in factory controlled conditions before the complete units are moved to site for fast and easy installation onto pre-prepared fixings. Available with a combination of profiles, external feature caps, glazing and other infills. There are options of slim-line sections with overall site lines of 70 or 90 mm and panels sizes of up to 4000 x 4000 mm.

The system has the following advantages:

  • Reduction in time on site of up to 70%.
  • Improved safety - scaffolding may no longer be required.
