Advantages of Perfomix Q80 system

Suitable for mounting triple glazing

Suitable for mounting functional triple glazing with a maximum thickness of 52 mm (STV® 54 mm).

 

Smart technique

Smart sealing technique with up to three sealing planes.

Thermal and acoustic insulation

Very good thermal and acoustic insulation thanks to the 6-chamber structure and the large construction depth of blind frames and sashes.

Visible width

Visible narrow width and 15° inclination for a pleasant appearance.

Windows suitable for passive homes, also available in coloured version

Performix Q80 is the combination of individual profiles within the S 9000 Gealan system. It offers the possibility to build, using standard profiles and standard 2 mm steel stiffening, also coloured window elements for passive houses, in accordance with Directive ift WA-15/2. The verified Uf coefficient of 0.89 W/(m²K) confirms the excellent basic thermal insulation characteristics. With Performix Q80, when using STV® bonding technique, maximum sash sizes of up to 2.40 m are possible.

Optimised thermal insulation

The development of a system with optimal thermal insulation properties is not accidental but is the result of result-oriented development works. Our success confirms it. Numerous calculations have demonstrated excellent coefficients in terms of thermal insulation. From the outset, the development objective was to achieve a coefficient Uf – 0.92 W/m²K for thermal insulation in the standard combination with steel and thus compatibility with passive housing. This is possible thanks to all the innovative details that make up the system.

Hardware

Hardware is crucial for the insulation and soundproofing of the windows, as well as for the safety offered by them. That is precisely why VitraQ chose to work with Maco – Austria hardware, recognised for its high reliability and safety.

The hardware selected by VitraQ is a complete solution from Maco and stands out by:

  • Multiple adjustments, thus permanently ensuring the initial characteristics of the window
  • Corrosion resistance, with choice for products dedicated to high moisture areas
  • Enhanced anti-burglary security thanks to Maco’s fully deployed system
  • Standard equipment with system against wrong actuation
  • Standard equipment with microventilation

 

Glazing

The main purpose of windows is to improve the quality of life in your home by natural light brightening and warming your home. Of course, all these are supported by high coefficients of thermal and acoustic insulation, any of the glazing packages used by UNIKAT are carefully selected.

The glazing packages offered by VitraQ meet diverse needs and wishes, depending on the particularities of your application:

  • High thermal insulation using Low-E glass, the one with SGG Planitherm solar control and Argon inert gas in the glazing package. In addition, the use of the Warmedge glazing strip improves significantly the thermal transfer coefficient
  • Sound insulation through specially designed packages to improve sound comfort
  • Ensuring privacy by using reflective glazing
  • Burglar-proof glazing by using the security elements in the glazing packages
  • Strengthens the design elements of your home with specific textures and colours

Special profiles - renovation frame

The renovation profile eliminates the repairs of the embrasures following the window installation. This frame is very useful when mounting the new joinery directly on the old frames, without dismantling the existing ones.

The renovation wing is available in several sizes.

GEALAN innovations for VitraQ Performix windows

Through our innovations, the GEALAN profiles for the VitraQ Performix windows feature higher degree of uniqueness in terms of appearance and function.

Thermal insulation

Remarkable coefficients of thermal insulation for windows and doors can be achieved by means of integrated insulation window profiles.

Acrylcolor

Acrylcolor – synonymous with proven reliability over decades. Complex production process for highly durable, coloured surfaces.

Ventilation

Air is life. GEALAN CAIRE® offers the healthiest solution for any type of construction. Full technology for optimal space.

Stability

GEALAN’s unique bonding technology enables the manufacture of large windows.
