With its new Slimpatio 68, Reynaers Alu­minium brings in­no­va­tive pa­tio slid­ing win­dow so­lu­tions that not only of­fer even wider views, but also de­liver su­pe­rior air, wind and wa­ter tight­ness

Reynaers Alu­minium, lead­ing Eu­ro­pean spe­cial­ist in sus­tain­able ar­chi­tec­tural alu­minium so­lu­tions, has launched its new Slimpatio 68 slid­ing el­e­ment to ex­tend panoramic views through cre­ative de­sign fea­tures. The el­e­gant flush de­sign with its con­cealed frame de­liv­ers higher wind load re­sis­tance through im­proved seal­ing tech­nol­ogy and supreme com­fort.

This new prod­uct, with its first project re­al­i­sa­tion at Ithaa­fushi in the Mal­dives, fea­tures con­sid­er­able view ex­pan­sions to as­sure max­i­mal panoramic vis­tas by re­duc­ing vis­i­ble lines to the very min­i­mum. Based on its mar­ket proven pre­de­ces­sor, the CP 68, vis­i­ble widths of 110 and 102 mil­lime­ters have all been re­duced to the Slimpatio’s slim pro­files of equal thick­ness at 34 mil­lime­ters; a to­tal re­duc­tion of 68 per­cent.

This has fur­ther been com­ple­mented by its beau­ti­ful flush de­sign and a frame that is con­cealed in the wall cav­i­ties; of­fer­ing el­e­gant sym­met­ri­cal views at a com­pet­i­tive price. A full height in­te­grated han­dle has been in­cor­po­rated in the pro­file to keep the nar­row lines in­tact.

En­sur­ing com­fort and safety

In ad­di­tion to the aes­thetic value of the ex­panded view, Slimpatio 68 also ex­cels in com­fort and safety. Out­stand­ing ther­mal in­su­la­tion, as well as su­perb air, wind and wa­ter (AWW) per­for­mance lev­els have been achieved as re­flected in the fol­low­ing ta­ble:

Air per­me­abil­ity - 4 (600Pa) Wa­ter tight­ness - 8A (450Pa) Wind load re­sis­tance - B5 (2,000Pa)

The Slimpatio 68 with re­in­forced meet­ing sec­tion can han­dle wind loads of up to 2,000Pa, which makes this so­lu­tion ideal for ar­eas ex­posed to harsh weather con­di­tions such as coastal en­vi­ron­ments and high-rise build­ings.

Like the CP 68, the Slimpatio 68 so­lu­tion of­fers a wide va­ri­ety of op­tions vary­ing from a sim­ple, sin­gle rail setup to two- and three-rail so­lu­tions to al­low for much wider open­ings where this is re­quired. The va­ri­ety of com­bi­na­tions of fixed and slid­ing el­e­ments al­lows ar­chi­tects and de­sign­ers cre­ative free­dom. This in­cludes a con­cealed pocket so­lu­tion, where the vents dis­ap­pear into the wall, and a very nar­row cen­tral clos­ing op­tion with a stan­dard seven mil­lime­tre spin­dle.

Vents can reach up to 2,700 mil­lime­tres and can sup­port up to a max­i­mum weight of 250 kg; con­sid­er­ably up from the 200 kg and 2,500 mil­lime­tres of the stan­dard CP 68. Glass thick­nesses of 24 or 36 mil­lime­tres are ac­com­mo­dated, de­liv­er­ing an in­su­la­tion per­for­mance of up to Uw 1.2 W / m²k.

Willem Naudts, Prod­uct Man­ager for slid­ing sys­tems at Reynaers Alu­minium, high­lights the Com­pany’s com­mit­ment to con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment to en­sure its mar­ket lead­er­ship in of­fer­ing su­pe­rior lev­els of per­for­mance and com­fort and a rea­son­able price. “When we launched the ever re­li­able CP 68 in 2014 it was de­signed to bring the su­pe­rior fea­tures of our high end prod­ucts to within reach of all our con­sumers. That de­sire has not changed, and the Slimpatio 68 is proof of our ded­i­ca­tion to qual­ity and ex­cel­lence through in­no­va­tive de­sign.”
