The Univers® VEP range is destined to the construction of grid-pattern curtain wall or semi-curtain wall façades with fixed frames and Italian windows of equal visible area, separated by 10-mm joint gaps.
It is composed of a series of mullions and transoms to assemble with screws or junction blocks. The system leaves the choice between frontal and progressive installation.
The non-thermal break frame profiles accept 6 to 10-mm single glazing, 9 to 15-mm laminated glazing, or 19 to 34-mm double glazing. These profiles are completed with a thermal-break frame profile for 24 to 34-mm glass.
Frames, infillings and glazing beads are assembled in the workshop. The frames are fitted on site directly into the main structure, the fixed frames by a drop-and-lock, screw avoiding device, the openable frames by hinged arms.
The technical options of this design reduce fabrication and installation time, while guaranteeing top quality of the finished product.
