The Expressiv-AL 70 is our all-around aluminum window profile system. It is a 3-chamber system with a moderate 70mm depth that comes in a standard variant and a sashless variant where the profile line is the same between a Fixed and an Operable unit. Depending on the application, it can achieve passive grade in some instances. It comes in only one modern square exterior shape and can theoretically handle up to a 55mm-wide glazing unit, though this is limited to 52mm in most instances. The 32-35mm wide polyamide thermal break connector ensures a high degree of thermal performance for an all-aluminum profile, while providing a Uf-value of 0.193-0.333, depending on the use of additional thermal foam inserts into the chambers. This window system is mainly designed for those clients wanting a high level of design flexibility for a full aluminum profile that thermally performs reasonably well at a reasonable price.
