Obsessed with quality

Performance, build, compliance – everything aluminium systems fabricator Reynaers does focuses on quality. The updated Slim Line 38 system is no different

Out with the old…

A system designed for inward and outward opening windows and doors, CS 38 has been used by architects worldwide for a number of years. Now, however, the ‘Slim Line’ SL 38 series has overhauled the existing design, making it perform better than ever in various applications.

The system can easily be integrated into new builds and custom architectural projects – but where it shines is in renovation, refurbishment and restoration such the CS 38's use at the Modernist Nedinsco factory in the Netherlands (pictured below). The reason for this is its classic aesthetic that combines understated, elegant design with a steel look; enabling buildings to retain their heritage feel and period style while benefitting from vastly improved performance.

Available in three distinct designs – Classic, Ferro and Cubic – SL 38 maximises creative freedom to work around the demands of older buildings while maximising light and comfort for inhabitants. It achieves this through Reynaers’ unremitting focus on quality in every aspect of the system: durable material, clean design and clear understanding of architectural and construction challenges. In turn, that makes quality in the performance of the building facade one less concern for architects, particularly when renovating older buildings.

…in with the new

So, what about the new features of SL 38? Most noticeably, the SL upgrade offers clean lines and a minimalist approach, meaning the system looks equally at home in both contemporary constructions as well as repurposed buildings. The ultra-slim design also works easily with double and triple glazing, with glass thickness up to 55mm, without compromising its slim-line look. Also, it is reinforced with an invisible drainage system – meaning no need for exterior drainage caps – and can be specially configured with hidden hinges, both of which further enhance its minimalist aesthetic.

Of more concern to today’s architects, however, is SL 38’s thermal performance. And here, its highly insulated three-chamber system and ultra-slim profiles dramatically improve thermal characteristics and performance. In fact, depending on configuration – whether fixed, turn or turn-tilt – Uw values as low as 1.4 W/m2K can be achieved. Joining this is excellent weather performance, with air tightness of Class 4 (600Pa) and water tightness of Class 9A (600Pa). Given the problems often faced with the poor thermal and weather performance of older buildings, these characteristics take a huge burden off architects’ minds and contractors’ hands.

These features, and the unrelenting focus of the design team on the SL 38 upgrade, all show the quality packed into the system. Which goes to show how, by making quality everything in one compact, minimalist system, Reynaers makes it nothing at all.
