The ‘7Even Gardens’ build makes use of slim line, steel-look aluminium windows from Reynaers, turning an old factory into a pleasant living environment.
The former Van der Elst cigar factory in Leuven has undergone a metamorphosis into an urban oasis with a mix of residential units, offices and shops around a series of green outdoor areas.
The slim line steel-look window product from Reynaers imitates the look of the original window frames. Slim Line 38 is one of the latest additions to Reynaers product range and an advancement of Reynaers’ original CS 38 window system, which is featured on 7Even Gardens. SL 38 has exactly the same aesthetic but benefits from even better performance. It boasts the look and feel of steel, supported by the superior qualities of aluminium.
A highly insulated system of inward and outward opening windows and doors, SL 38 combines lightweight elegance and comfort with a unique design. Combined with its stability and ease of production, this system offers an ideal solution for both new-build constructions and the renovation of steel-framed windows and doors. Whilst the original design is respected, a vast improvement on thermal insulation is achieved.
A special modification to the design also means the system is available with hidden hinges, whilst the use of glazing bars will achieve a more traditional design. The minimalistic frame is reinforced by an invisible drainage system, avoiding the use of drainage caps on the exterior of windows and doors.
The windows and doors can be provided with double and triple glazing with a glass thickness of up to 55mm without losing the ultra-slim look. In combination with its superior insulation capabilities, the system provides the perfect harmony between durable material, clean design and demanding architectural challenges.
SL 38 features a highly insulated three-chamber system with ultra-slim profiles for increased thermal characteristics. The solution is available in fixed, turn, and turn-tilt variations with Uw values of 1.4 W/m²K or greater depending on the configuration.
For optimum end user comfort, the SL 38 product offers excellent weather performance with air tightness of Class 4 (600Pa) and water tightness Class 9A (600Pa). This strong performance also extends to safety, with a burglar resistance class of 2 and fire resistance class EW 30.
