All Innovare windows and window combinations combine the aesthetics of frameless glazing in an opening window. The Innovare System has a flushed glazed exterior window finish where the insulated glass unit is stepped over the opening frame. The resulting windows have impressive performance characteristics in opening or venting windows for all types of applications as well as a sleek external window design.
Innovare Windows can be installed as single opening elements within a reveal or as a full window configuration with multiple opening and fixed elements. Opening Innovare Windows can be Side Hung or Top Guided. All external framing sections will be identical no matter the opening configuration chosen which creates an extremely uniform external appearance to the window designs.
Each frameless opening window is outward opening with a back painted band on the external stepped glass, hiding all fixings and framework. This band is available as black, dark grey, light grey or white to suit your external building finishes.
Internal frames of the flush glazed windows are made from thermally broken aluminium profiles or timber as required. The aluminium frames can be powder coated any RAL colour whilst the timber profiles can be stained or painted in a variety of finishes.
All hinges and mechanisms of these flush glazed windows are stainless steel and there is a range of handle designs available with integrated espagnolette locking. These flush glazed windows have impressive security ratings and have been tested to PAS:24 certification.
Innovare Windows can be designed as fixed, side hung, top guided or side guided to suit your opening element and can be easily integrated and mixed together seamlessly into a larger window configuration.
All hinging ironmongery is hidden within the frame depth for a neat window design and internal finish to the opening windows. The stainless steel friction hinges can also be designed with restrictors to only allow the windows to open to a certain angle.
The flush glazed nature of the Innovare Frameless Windows matches the flush glazed appearance of many structural glass assemblies and can be used in conjunction with these frameless glass assemblies with great effect.
Integrated aluminium cills or flashings can be designed and installed if required to suit your specification.
The key design feature of the Innovare Windows is its flush external appearance. This is achieved by stepping the external leaf of a triple or double glazed unit over the internal frame and structurally bonding this glass step back onto the framing.
The external back painted band of glass that is covering the internal frame can be coloured as Black, Dark Grey, Light Grey or White as required. This coloured band is back painted onto the internal of the glass step and baked into the glass for a UV stable perimeter to the window.
This glass band around the external face to the window is there to hide the structural bond of the glass to the frame and maintain a neat external finish to windows.
Internally the timber frames can be painted or stained in a number of finishes. Aluminium framing can be powder coated any RAL colour you like and can then create a dual colour finish from the windows if desired.
Handles and Locking
The innovative windows from IQ Glass have integrated locking within the windows framing. The locking is integrated as a 2-3 point key lock operated via a stainless brushed steel economic handle.
These flushed glazed windows are available in a number of opening configurations including top hung windows, side hung windows, side guided windows, top guided windows and fixed windows.
The maximum opening size of an Innovare Window will depend on the internal frame material chosen. For example, a side hung Innovare Window with an aluminium internal frame will have a maximum size of 898mm wide by 1843mm tall.
Fixed side lights and overlights can be integrated with opening flush glazed windows to fill larger openings and Innovare flush glazed doors are also available to enable you to create a full and cohesive architectural glass design to all windows and doors.
