Hybrid windows – New addition to Cristallo Systems Range

system_pic_hyb_home ‘Hybrid’ is a high insulation composite timber and aluminium window system which is complimented by a matching door and curtain wall system. Hybrid combines the advantage of the long life and low maintenance of aluminium externally with all the benefits of engineered timber internally. The product is designed and manufactured in the UK. This makes the product an ideal solution for both new-build and refurbishment projects where site measurement is required. Being designed and supplied from one of the largest UK window systems companies, it means that the specifier can be assured that the system meets and exceeds all current standards.

The Hybrid Series 2 Casement is available as either an 125mm or 150mm high performance window system that achieves very high thermal insulation values providing low U Values well below the current and anticipated future Building Regulation requirements.series2-casement-windows-overview

Comprising the insulating benefits of timber on the inside and the durability of aluminium on the outside, the system includes top hung, side hung and fixed light combination windows.

The Hybrid Series 2 provides a clean symmetrical look, with aesthetically pleasing appearance, identical regardless of whether the window opens or is a fixed pane.

Hybrid Series 2 Casement Windows are constructed using mitred joints on both the aluminium and the timber frames. Using a mechanical corner joint on the aluminium and patented dovetail keys on the timber enables the frames to be constructed without the need for complicated production processes. Integral transoms and mullions are inserted by scribing the ends and screw fix to the frame.

Opening lights are designed to be inserted directly into the outerframe using friction stays.
