The Impressive-AL 75 is our entry-level near-passive all-aluminum Tilt&Turn window profile system. It is a 3-chamber system with a moderate depth that can still handle a wide enough triple-pane glazing unit to make some applications near or at passive house grade. It comes in only one modern square exterior shape and can theoretically handle up to a 61mm-wide glazing unit, though for practicality and safety, this is limited to 48mm in most instances. The 28mm 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 the aesthetics of a full aluminum profile that thermally performs reasonably well at a reasonable price compared to other similar products of the same class.
Shown in basic double-pane configuration with no thermal inserts. Notice the wide un-utilized glazing width capability.
