Maximising window performance

The new MasterLine 8 window system from Reynaers Aluminium, which doesn’t require additional gaskets, promises enhanced production speed, “giving fabricators more time to craft the perfect windows”.

The result is aluminium windows with naturally slim sightlines, equipping homes with the ability to maximise natural light and provide greater visibility between the inside and out, the company said, while retaining all of the performance characteristics required in modern buildings.

Paul Reid, sales director at Reynaers Aluminium, said: “Modern architecture is as much about design as it is about performance, so materials really need to strike a balance between these demands. With MasterLine 8, we’ve created a system which does exactly that, giving designers, fabricators and installers the ability to maximise the presence of natural light without compromising essential characteristics like thermal efficiency.

“We’ve made this possible by creating aluminium profiles which are intricately designed to maximise performance while remaining slim, ultimately reducing sightlines. In practice, this maximises design freedom for the best architectural finishes while ensuring performance remains intact.”

Delivering water tightness of 1,200Pa, air tightness of 600Pa and “excellent thermal values”, MasterLine 8 is available with inward and outward opening types and multiple configurations to accommodate a variety of requirements.
