With a frame depth of just 95 mm and narrow sight lines of only 125 mm, the WICONA WICLINE 95 sees the development of a window system which fulfils the stringent requirements of the Dr Feist Passive House Institute.WICLINE 95 achieves a Uf value up to 0.68 W/(m²K) and a Uw value less than 0.80 W/(m²K), without the need for thermal inserts in the sash or frame profile. Achieving the phB passive house efficiency standard, the WICLINE 95 is one of the most advanced aluminium frame components to be accredited by the Passive House Institute.
The WICLINE 95 system removes the need for external ‘over-insulation’ commonly seen today. The Thermo Frame insulation sits inside the window and can be fabricated as a sash frame. Its unique clip fastening facilitates installation. This means thermal insulation that is easy to fit and an Uf value which is variable and can be tailored to individual project requirements. With such a flexible but achievable U value, the WICLINE 95 is a widely adaptable suite.
The WICLINE 95 window also uses ETC Intelligence which represents a thermal break zone for high levels of thermal insulation without the need for thermal inserts or foams. A Low Emission film efficiently reflects heat radiation, while the Low Transmission insulation strips keep thermal conduction to a minimum. Low Convection insulation strip ‘fins’ minimise heat loss from convection in the thermal break. These technological advancements combine to produce passive house-certified energy-efficiency levels.
In line with WICONA Unisys ethos, the WICLINE 95 system uses a high number of components from the WICLINE 65/75 window series, including the centre seal gasket, corners and fittings. This feature reduces cost and component storage requirements for the fabricator.
The WICLINE 95 suite also benefits from high-quality, fully concealed fittings and a direct positioning system (DPS) for fast and simple installation.
