Frameless fixed glazing
If the lift&slide solution is manufactured in timber-aluminium, frameless fixed glazing can be used. This enables the maximum possible glass surface. More glass benefits the thermal performance of the overall unit. It is well known that glazing offers superior U values compared with a frame. The extended glass front also improves sound insulation properties. If the building owner also opts for shatter-proof glass, they will also be able to enjoy optimised protection against burglary as well as excellent thermal and sound insulation.
