PureGlaze Range Expands

The PureGlaze range of windows and doors was developed in-house at Cantifix, and is as close as you can get to all-glass double-glazed doors.

The range works on the concept of sandwiching an aluminium frame between two sheets of glass, in order to incorporate the locking and weathering systems needed for an external door. This frame is then hidden with a 70mm wide back painted band – which can be painted in any RAL colour.
At Cantifix we are committed to continually improving and expanding our product range – and PureGlaze is no different. This year has seen many aesthetic and functional developments made – leading to a new version of the PureGlaze door, as well as a new PureGlaze window.

The PureGlaze Door

The new and improved PureGlaze door is designed around 180 degree pivot operation – allowing for a wide variety of building uses. It has been has been carefully re-detailed, so that a wider variety of locks and closers can be incorporated into the profile – allowing greater continuity across the range.

The introduction of a double bottom bearing has increased the sizes possible for the PureGlaze door – with heights up to 3 metres now available. The profile is thermally broken, and with standard glass achieves average u-values of 1.6 W/m2/K. This value can be improved by integrating Heat Mirror film into the doors.

Other enhancements to the PureGlaze door include an extra line of woolpile around the frame – to improve weathering performance, and a relocation of the closer to the head of the door – to reduce the size of the threshold and improve drainage.

Security is solid - with a 3-point deadlock operated by a Europrofile cylinder from both inside and outside. Slave leaves in sets of double doors are secured at top and bottom by centrally operated flush bolts hidden within the glass; and concealed closers in the head keep the doors tightly closed. Although the PureGlaze door can be fitted with a wide variety of handles; the most popular option is stainless steel pull handles in 650mm long – which are bolted through the glass; and cranked to allow access to the key.

The new ‘PureGlaze leaf’ can be configured for both sliding and stacking, to allow larger panel sizes and wider clear openings. Planned future developments include an option for a folding PureGlaze – as well as testing to allow leafs wider than 2 metres.

The PureGlaze Window

The PureGlaze window is available in either manual or electrical options, up to widths and heights of 1.5 metres. The window has no visible framing from either inside or outside, making it ideal for facades where a perfectly flush finish is desired.

Overall average u-values are 1.1 W/m2/K – 1.5 W/m2/K – depending on the glass specification. The PureGlaze window is also available with Heat Mirror film integrated, for optimum thermal performance.

As with the PureGlaze door, security is robust – with the manual version featuring key lockable handles which operate 2-point dead locking espagnolette bolts. The weatherproofing is excellent – as shown in our water test video.
