Rehau Euroslide Design S920 System Description for Sliding Windows

The Rehau Euroslide Design can be used to make a wide variety of upvc sliding double glazed windows and doors. Three main categories of pvcu window and door design can be fabricated:

  • Horizontal sliding double glazed windows or doors with 2 (two) or more sliding sashes
  • Horizontal sliding double glazed windows or doors with fixed glazing unit
  • Horizontal sliding double glazed windows or doors with flyscreen

Typical design illustrations or photographs of double glazed sliding system windows and doors can be found in the Product Menu or in Gallery.

Sliding Double Glazed Window and Door Frames

There are three frame profiles available

  • Frame 2 with 2 runners, 60mm profile depth
  • Frame 3 with 2 runners, and a flyscreen runner, 88mm profile depth
  • Frame 1, for fixed double glazing.

The frame members are made from the same profile. They are mitre cut and welded together for a stronger joint.
Aluminium or stainless steel rails are fitted to the runners of the frame profile, on which the sashes slide to open and close horizontally.

Double Glazing Sliding System Features

Sliding Double Glazed Window and Door Sashes.
  There are two sash profiles: one for double glazed windows and one for double glazed doors. All sashes can be fitted with seal 5x6mm, which provides optimum air, water and sound tightness.
The sash profile has a depth of 41mm, which allows both single and double glazing of glass thickness up to 20mm.
   
Reinforcement within Sliding Double Glazed Windows and Doors.
  The reinforcement chambers of the profiles are designed to provide optimal reinforcement to fulfil static requirements even for large window and door elements. The galvanised steel or aluminium profiles are inserted into the PVC profiles and secured with screws at specified intervals to provide maximum structural integrity to the double glazed window or door.
   
Sliding Sash Double Glazed Window and Door Interlock.
  When the sashes are at closed position, the interlock profiles overlap each other. Optimal sealing is ensured with the addition of two rows of brush seal that attached to the interlock profiles..
   
Sliding Sash Double Glazed Windows and Doors Filler Piece.
  The filler pieces fitted with brush seal provide optimum resistance to driving rain and also prevents the sash from being lifted out of the frame once the installation is completed..

It is common to find two panel of glass and they are therefore also referred to as double glazing units. Triple glazing units are rare but serve their owners well in very cold climates.

Low E Glass

 

Low-e glass brings out the best that technology has to offer for improving your views and comfort! A cool, metal oxide coating is applied to clear or tinted glass, so that the appearance and performance are the same regardless of glass thickness. Low-e glass is recommended by many energy efficiency experts as a result of high performance combined with aesthetics. Low-E glass typically cost about 15% more than ordinary glass, but they reduce energy use by as much as 30-50%, by using most of the heat gain in winter but keep the harmful UV rays out during the summer, and when used in insulated glass units - can have even better benefits.
For hot climates, low-E coating should be applied to the outside pane of glass. If the windows are designed to provide heat energy in the winter and keep heat inside the house typical of cold climates, the Low-E coating will maximise benefit by being on the inside pane of glass.   For a detailed discussion on the subject of double glazed low e glass click here

Handling and Storage

 

After the double glazed windows are delivered to your home or the construction site, ideally they should be installed as soon as possible, to minimise the risk of accidental damage. However, we understand that this may not be practical if there are other renovation or construction work being completed - in this case, it is best to store the double glazed window/ door frames and glass separately and in an area with limited access, so that the upvc window frames and insulated glass units experience the least movement possible.   Read more on double glazed handling and storage

 
     
 

Low Maintenace

 

Upvc is the ideal frame material due to its inherent qualities of resistance to corrosion, fire, water, and sunlight. Apart from the most obvious applications in coastal areas where salt destroys the appearance and function of aluminium windows, while wooden windows must be specially treated with chemicals or paint, upvc frames have also been used in commercial and industrial applications and in areas of high pollution or for high impact winds. In addition, the upvc composition includes ultra-violet components, which reflect the sunlight and resist damage. The profile will not warp because it contains aluminium or steel reinforcement and wont need to be repainted, chemically treated, polished or cleaned. However, cleaning may be required for glass, intermittently, as desired, which will be necessary regardless of the frame material used. Our upvc Double Glazed Windows and Doors are ideal for the get and forget consumer! The low maintenance factor of upvc windows and doors exceeds that of any other frame material, saves your time and energy for the important things in life!   Continued on the double glazed low maintenace page

 
     
 

Draft Proof

 

There are significant savings in electricity that will pay for your windows in 6-7 years and will reduce your CO2 emissions by about 100-150kg per year. For an indication of energy efficiency of a window or door, look for the U-value or R-value. U-value measures the overall heat transfer coefficient, or how well the window/door conducts heat and is also the inverse of the R-value. The lower the U-value, the greater a window's resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value. Our windows boast a value of 1.8, which means they perform three times better than an aluminium framed window with a typical value of 5.4-5.6. And since windows can contribute to between 15-40% energy loss in a building, installing the most energy efficient windows available should be the intelligent homeowner's priority.   For a detailed discussion on the subject of double glazed draft proof click here

Sealing

 

Many people have the impression that all silicone gels on the market are the same, but we have found that their properties and, therefore, suitability varies dramatically. Generally, the descriptions of silicone offer little information as to the correct grade and type for a given application, and because of performance variability, there is no one type of silicone sealant that should be used for everything. Using the incorrect silicone or improper use may cause joint failure, contamination of surfaces because of poor application, excessive movement in the sealed joint.   For a detailed discussion on the subject of double glazed sealing click here

 
     
 

Toughened Glass

 

Also known as tempered glass, it is a type of safety glass that has increased strength and will usually shatter in small, square pieces when broken. It is used when strength, thermal resistance and safety are important considerations. At home you are likely to find toughened glass in the shower and sliding glass patio doors. For commercial structures, it is used in unframed assemblies such as frameless doors, structurally loaded applications and where there is a danger of human impact. Toughened glass is typically four to six times the strength of annealed glass.   Extra information about double glazed toughened glass can be found here

 
     
 

UV Resistance

 

We only use quality extrusion that has been rigorously tested for UV radiation in harsh environments in desert or mountain conditions. The profile has been specifically formulated for Australian conditions to thwart potential damage from the sun. Un-reinforced uPVC window profiles have a lack of rigidity and a high coefficient of expansion. To avoid preventable damage, we always reinforce all our windows and door frames with aluminium or steel, according to customer requirements.   Extra information about double glazed uv resistance can be found here
