Altus - Smartfit Window Technology (Windows and Doors)
Altus - Smartfit Window Technology (Windows and Doors) is a fully assembled aluminium window and door joinery system comprising Altus (Windows and Doors) Joinery with the proprietary Smartfit flashing system. The Smartfit flashing system comprises specifically designed extruded aluminium sections and reinforced nylon moulded components.
Altus - Smartfit Window Technology (Windows and Doors) incorporates a fixing flange (fin) or rubber seal that allows the joinery to be installed and sealed to the face of the wall underlay or floor edge, a prefitted head flashing or soffit bar and an integral sill support. The joinery is designed for use with cavity-based wall cladding systems and creates a weather and airtight barrier around the joinery perimeter when used with Smartfit flashing tape. Flexible flashing tapes and airseals are therefore not required around the window reveal.
The joinery units are available with fixed glazing or opening sashes. Opening sash styles include awning, casement, bifold and sliding windows. Door styles include sliding, bifold and hinged.
