GUILLOTINE

Creating height and flooding your interior with light.

The basic guillotine window comprises two vertically sliding frames. Vitrocsa offers multiple fixed and mobile configurations, either hidden or visible.

The structure is anodised 25 micron aluminium alloy, in a natural colour finish. As an option, the thermolacquered or anodised versions are available in an infinite choice of colours. The width of the vertical profile is 18 mm. The system operates using a high-precision counterweight operation for ultra-simple manageability. Various button locking system options are available, and the system can be motorised.

The excellent insulating properties of the profiles, in combination with the glass, enable current low energy consumption standards to be met.

The Vitrocsa 3001 range allows for sliding window surfaces of up to 6 m² with 26 mm double glazing.

The first Vitrocsa 3001 window was developed at the start of the 1990s. With the experience we now have, we can guarantee that this system presents no hidden defects.

The roller mechanism and sealing system work perfectly, provided that the window has been assembled in line with good industry practices.

OPTIONS

A range of motorisation equipment is available as an option:

In accordance with our philosophy, we developed a motorisation system for all the TH+ guillotine and sliding systems which allows integration into the architectural design with minimum interference, with a simplified and very quiet opening.

The motorisation system is fully hidden in the top part of our Vitrocsa frame and only requires a height of 12 cm. The maximum driving force is 180 N for a maximum weight of 1,200 kg per motor. The maximum motion speed is 167 mm/s-1 and slows when a second leaf is driven. It has an automatic electrical closure which is compatible with all home automation opening systems: electronic lock, push button, badge reader, etc. Our system is undergoing constant development, and new options will be available soon.

To ensure complete safety, the system stops as soon as an obstacle is detected. The motorisation system is also available for the curved and guillotine solutions.
