Technical Detail

Dimensions

Depending on a maximum panel weight of 280kg, The EDGE system can be manufactured up to 3,000mm tall.

Panels can be fixed with moving panels sliding behind or it is possible to have all panels sliding. It is even possible to open up corners completely with a sliding corner post.

Note: if you are planning to install large glass panels suitable access and crane operation will be required.

Profile

The EDGE works best when it is designed to provide large glass panels. Each staggered panel interlocks front to back with its neighbour so only a single frame, width is visible, ensuring exceptional sightlines at 24mm.

Track Options

The EDGE is available as a twin or triple track. Whatever the opening variation the track incorporates drainage channels and depending on the type of external floor finish, can be recessed into the ground to give a virtually level threshold.

A cover plate can be fitted to block off and prevent any dirt or debris from entering any redundant track adjacent a fixed panel.

Security

The EDGE offers a high level of security as standard and is designed with an anti-lifting device to prevent the removal of individual panels. With full aluminium interlock between each of the panels it is impossible to lever them apart.

The EDGE incorporates a four-point mushroom headed cam lock with an additional centre hook lock and full length keep bar. This prevents movement associated with inferior individual lock keeps over a period of time and complies with the requirements of the Association of British Insurers.

Alternatively a shootbolt locking option can be used when a night vent position is required. It is internally glazed for added security.

Weather Seals

The EDGE is a severe weather rated system Category C, BS 6375-1:2009. Weathering varies according to configuration type but can achieve up to 300Pa water tightness and 300Pa air tightness.

Additionally this system has been tested to withstand 2,400Pa wind loads giving further peace of mind.

Each panel is fully rebated, with concealed double nylon brush strips and fin seals surrounding the perimeter of each panel.

Operating System

The operating mechanism consists of a double-tandem, stainless steel sealed bearing bottom-running carriage capped with polyamide preventing any wear to the track. Additional carriages are used if the weight of the panel exceeds 200kg. It runs on a stainless steel guide rail with a hard-wearing threshold cover plate protecting the track from damage. This heavy-duty system guarantees smooth, effortless operation with long life and reliable performance.

Appearance

The EDGE is available as standard or polyester powder coated white RAL 9016 or anthracite grey RAL 7016. Alternatively for a nominal fee the systems can be polyester powder coated to any stocked RAL colour (over 200 RAL colours) and even dual colour or wood grain effect. In addition you can specify whether a matt, semi-gloss or full-gloss level of paint finish is required.

Door furniture comes in coloured to match the frame as standard. We can also offer stainless steel feature handles for a more contemporary look.

Designs can be customised according to preference – including mid-rails, mullions and solid in-fill panels, among many others.

Ventilation

Trickle vents with an airflow equivalent to 2,500mm2 or 5,000mm2 can also be incorporated with the addition of a 20mm add-on head profile; these also can be colour coded to suit.

Complete System

The EDGE can be complemented by our single doors, French doors, tilt and turn windows and fixed glazed screens, to achieve an aesthetically uniform appearance throughout.
