    Stand F 24

    Series 713 is a casement joinery range (opening inwards or outwards) with a 70mm module equipped with progressive thermal protection (three performance levels). This system can provide either concealed handles or visible handles with elegant lines, thanks to its reduced aluminium sections. The Taïga ranges includes innovative, outward-opening frames which combine top-hung hopper opening with casement opening.

    Series 713 offers a casement joinery range with progressive high thermal protection. For a single-leaf window with double glazing rated Uw = 1,3 W/m²°c the U-values are Ug= 1,1 W/m²°c with Sw = 0,51. For triple-glazing rated Ug = 0,5 W/m²°C the U-values are 0,8 W/m²°c with an Sw of 0,45. Sound attenuation can reach an RAtr of 41 dBA. The system offers three types of thermal shielding which allow progressive high thermal protection values to meet the varying needs of the final user. The joinery comes with the choice of mitred or right-angled assembly, both on fixed frame segments and on opening framework. The right-angled opening bars are produced by a new patented system which reduces machining and thus facilitates bi-coloration. The external opening frames offer the advantage of new, original fittings which combine outward casement opening with hopper opening. Series 713 comes in two Design: Factory Spirit versions with spare, sober lines and a sleek finish.

    On interior opening sections, Series 713 offers a right-angled assembly system which reduces profile size. The originality here is a glazing bead which makes the frame perfectly watertight with excellent closing and reduces machining. On external opening sections, new fittings allow outward casement opening along with top-hung hopper opening to assist ventilation. These new fittings also permit several fastening points along the frame, giving the window excellent water-resistance.


  • GAMME WALLIS & OUTDOOR, Trapezoid shaped bio-climatic pergola system

    By: PROFILS SYSTEMES
    Stand F 24

    The Wallis&Outdoor range is a bio-climatic pergola system which allows pergolas to be built in triangular, rectangular and trapezoid shapes. It gives solar protection in summer, with slatted movable sun-blinds. In winter it allows light and solar warmth to enter. The system of slats placed on the edge of the aluminium profile provides excellent water resistance thanks to the compression of the slats on a peripheral joint on the guttering.

    The Wallis&Outdoor range of bio-climatic pergolas provides two types of slats: plain slats or tubular slats which allow pergolas dimensioned at 7000mm x 4500mm. Posts with invisible fixings drain away water from guttering. The guttering design allows posts to be placed at points best suited to the pergola’s form and situation. In this way the post does not have to be within the angle of the pergola. The slat system, which compresses a peripheral joint onto the guttering, is watertight. The Wallis&Outdoor system passed safety tests at the CSTB wind-tunnel in Nantes (report EN-CAPE 15.200C-V1) during trials for mainland France and for French overseas departments and territories. The system remained watertight during rainfall of 170 mm/h and resisted cyclone conditions (winds of 238 km/h) while remaining manoeuvrable. A patented system of slat fixation allows pergolas to be built in triangular or trapezoid form, with slat orientation adaptable to the best positions for these shapes.

    The Wallis&Outdoor pergola is innovative because it permits pergolas to be built in special shapes while remaining completely watertight. The system allows sunblind slats to be moved at angles up to 45°. The form of the slats and their control system make this possible, combined with a patented articulated slat. The movable slat system is fixed into the guttering by means of an integrated slot and is held with screws.


  • LUXLINE LA FENETRE PVC A OUVRANT CACHE, Performance is not a LUX*ury

    By: SOCREDIS
    Stand J 66

    A stylish range of PVC joinery profiles for window and French door systems with hidden sash.

    Since the sash is hidden behind the frame, the glazing is optimized by about 10% compared to a conventional PVC joinery, improving thermal performance, acoustic and light transmission, as it increases the solar factor too. Integration of a third sealing barrier brings up A.W.W. (Air tightness. Water tightness. Wind-load resistance ranking) performance to: A*4 W*9A W*A3. Not to mention that this barrier acts of burglary retardant and protects the hardware. Ensues significant economic interests as to the coloration that's henceforth required on the frame only (Case of Dual-staining): stock is then needed for sashes only. In addition, reinforcement is therefore tied to the size range and not the color. As to the frame coloration, there are many lamination, covering or lacquering solutions for modern, durable and customizable results.

    The LUXline window is innovative since its opening seems to be hidden only because of a "trompe l'oeil" effect : The outer facing of the opening is surrounded by a black seal giving the illusion of continuity with the frame. Remaining traditional carpentry , window adapts perfectly to the techniques already adopted by PVC joinery manufacturers , especially domestic parclosage system, minimizing the impact of the introduction of new products from the manufacturer.

  • MB 2000 - BROCHAGE POUR LES PROFILES ALUMINIUM, A new solution for difficult preps on alu profiles

    Stand D 35

    Broaching is a well known technology for high precision machining of steel or cast iron parts. Machine cost is reasonable. A broach is a multi teeth tool, similar to a very long file. Its section is designed according to the shape to be machined. Its movement is linear, and the required shape is realized by removing very small shavings. Tooth pitch is small, for a noiseless machining. The MB 2000 is fast and cost effective.

    MECAN'OUTIL has been supplying aluminium joinery with punch tools for nearly more than 30 years. Punching is a highly efficient and cost effective technology, used whenever technically possible. With the last thermal insulation requirements, recent profiles are using more sophisticated thermal break solutions, and punching is getting more and more difficult. It is often not possible to locate a strong enough die, in front of the punch. And thickness that need to be cut are sometimes just too big. Broaching key points: > Shape of cut: no constraints, possibility of sharp angles. If a deep cut is required, prep can be done in 2 or 3 steps > Material to be cut: any shape of extruded aluminium combined with any shape of polyamide thermal break. Benefits: each step requires a few seconds, change of die is a matter of minutes.

    Broaching has not so far been used in aluminium joinery. It has some major benefits vs competitive technologies used when punch tools can not be used for technical reasons: 1/ End profile milling is fast, but its noise level is not accepted by H&S rules 2/ Copy routers are cheap but very slow, and labour costly 3/ CNC machines require a large investment, are slow, and are often not precise enough for end bar preps.
