Are all windows and doors the same? It is often said “a window is just a window”.
But talk to anyone that designs or sells windows and doors and they’ll say - that is like saying “a car is just a car”. We all know with cars there are aesthetic, performance and innovation differences - Well this is also true of windows. For the most part people know there are subtle differences like the depth, curve or line of a profile or double glazing with all the bells and whistles.
But the revolutionary Smartfit® window system is more than that – why?
Well it’s not the fact that it has a BRANZ appraisal and a Codemark – any widget or product could go through the rigours of approval and compliance to try and attain these.
It’s because it changes the whole process of how we make and install windows for the betterment of our homes, the people building them and ultimately the people living in them.
Smartfit® is precision engineered – CNC technology provides accuracy and the ability to turn complex detailing into simple performance features, like; integrated support bars, head flashings and cavity closers. The result is a cassette window completely ready to be installed the moment it leaves the factory. The complex process normally associated with installing windows now becomes hassle free – saving on time and potential mistakes.
What’s the big difference? Smartfit® was designed to own the space between the window and the cladding. So it uses a clever face fixing fin to screw the window to the frame. This creates the air and weather seal, taking it from the back of the internal wall lining to forward of the frame and into the cavity. Along with the novel water management features built into the system, Smartfit® offers certainty and peace of mind through superior weathertightness.
At the end of the day, Smartfit® proves ‘a window is not just a window’. In the case of Smartfit® it is more like a fine car – offering a good bit of rev, robust performance, sophisticated engineering and smart technology.
