Aluprof has launched the MB-79N window and door system, offering a Uw value as low as 0.72 W/(m2K), as successor to its MB-70 system.
UK managing director Wojciech Brozyna said: “The Aluprof product portfolio includes many popular systems favoured in the UK. However, our customers are asking us to reduce frame sizes and optimise the design to provide a competitive system.
“We believe the MB-79N system accomplishes that and, showing our commitment to the UK architectural market, we have suited into the new system an open-out window arrangement as well. We believe it will be a game-changer for architects, designers, and developers who prioritise sustainability, performance, and aesthetics in their projects.”
As with other Aluprof systems, the MB-79N profiles are available in three variants. The economy version, MB-79N E, features a one component central seal. The MB-79N ST version is offered with a two component central seal and the MB-79N SI with a two component central seal along with inserts of thermal insulation cores.
For external doors, Aluprof also offers the MB-79N SI+ variant that comes with a internal perimeter gasket and insulation cores inside the profiles.
The new system can accommodate double or triple glazed units up to 63 mm thickness in windows and up to 54mm thickness in doors. These options make it possible to specify common thickness of glazed units, including acoustic glazing. It is designed to offer security doors, rated RC1 to RC3 including the option of providing panel doors in a wide range of designs.
MB-79N is also compatible with two existing Aluprof systems, the MB-86 and the MB-104 Passive, both of which are well known to the company’s customers. These systems share the same accessories and gaskets with popular multi-point locking systems by companies such as Roto, FUHR and GEZE.
