Shopfront 75mm & 100mm

Design Objectives

Shopfront 75mm and 100mm is designed to provide a commercial solution for Retail and Commercial frontages, Shopping Malls and interior use in Office and commercial buildings.

Shopfront is designed for single level canopy and shopping mall protected environments where high winds and high water pressures are not expected (Frontline 100mm provides a better commercial weather proof solution).

The key objectives of the design were to:

  • Provide a strong durable solution in very high use retail and commercial environments.
  • Compliment a wide range of commercial architecture.
  • Provide the flexibility to integrate with a range of commercial doors and windows or SovereignSeries™.
  • Accommodate a wide range of glazing requirements.

These objectives are met through key design features in Shopfront 75mm and 100mm which include:

  • Providing a commercial externally glazed screen for a wide range of buildings.
  • Each transom is fitted with end dams and each pane is drained individually in external applications.
  • Standard awning sashes and adjustable glass louvres which can be simply incorporated along with frameless sashes, hinged doors, sliding doors, pivot doors and bi-fold along with automatic doors, electric awning sashes and louvres.
  • Modular mullion system for continuous walls of windows (horizontal).
  • Single glazing which accommodates glazing from 5mm-12.38mm.
  • Pocket glazed mullions and beaded transoms to help with site glazing.

Additionally Shopfront 100mm provides for:

  • Double glazing 18mm-24mm.
  • Seismic frames, beaded seismic jambs and sloped seismic sills.
  • Optional pocket glazed or beaded mullions as well as heavy mullions.

The modular mullion system eliminates the need for bulky coupling when long runs of windows are required whilst meeting thermal/expansion requirements needed in many situations.

The 75mm and 100mm suites were designed as square profiled solutions with the flexibility to integrate awning windows and Commercial doors when necessary.

Performance
