ISO-TOP WINFRAMER SUPPORTS NEW APPROACH TO WINDOW INSTALLATION
A new approach to the rapid and effective installation of windows is provided by ISO-TOP WINFRAMER thermal insulating and load bearing bracket system now available from ISO-Chemie.
ISO-TOP WINFRAMER is a structurally solid, pre-fabricated installation frame manufactured in 1,200 mm lengths, which can be quickly cut to length on site and secured in position using a single component adhesive and, if necessary, fixing screws. Initially supplied as 80 mm wide, other sizes will be available soon.
This enables installers to position and fit windows into the insulation area between the inner and outer walls quickly and easily, avoiding the need to use metal brackets that cause non-repeating thermal bridging and give extensive problems when the windows need replacing.
The composite brackets can bear heavy windows loads, including Bi-fold doors, to provide a reliable, strong and high performance support frame. Installation is quick with windows attached directly and secured mechanically using either standard fixing screws or fixing lugs in the usual manner.
A hinged insulation core combines with the composite wood structural bracket to become an integral part of the overall wall structure, providing compliance with window energy saving regulations (EnEV) and the RAL quality assurance association.
ISO-TOP WINFRAMER can be used with a range of ISO-Chemie foam tape sealant systems to provide effective and high performance window sealing. These include ISO-BLOCO ONE, ISO-BLOCO ONE CONTROL, ISO-BLOCO 300 „PREMIUM EDITION“ and ISO-BLOCO 600 „PREMIUM EDITION“, the ISO-CONNECT VARIO range of self-adhesive foils and fleeces, and ISO-TOP FLEX-ADHESIVE WF for bonding and sealing to masonry and joint/corner sealing.
A major end-user benefit of the new system is that when a window needs to be replaced at a later date it is not necessary to remove the internal plaster finish of the reveal wall to remove the old metal brackets and fit new ones, saving further disruption, refurbishment time and costs.
Resistant to temperatures between -50 ºC / +100 ºC, ISO-TOP WINFRAMER has a load bearing capacity of 200kg/m as well as offering an excellent acoustic insulation performance (up to 50dBA), high humidity resistance and can be over plastered for decorative finishes.
