Luxe Alu-Wood Systems

Global Homez is proud to represent Alu-Wood systems from Italy. The strength of aluminium. The beauty and charm of wood. Profiles intended for residential and commercial solutions in refined styles, with the accent on the aesthetic but never at the expense of performance. A variety of systems for sliding or hinged installations.

  • Apart from being sleek, strong these ALU-WOOD systems are designed to meet different levels of heat insulation. This insulation level is called the U-value. The lower this U-value is, the higher the heat insulation. Profiles also have a unique gasket seal for a continuous acoustic seal, to ensure the complete insulation for better living.
  • For ALU systems, the insulation value is defined by the profiles, in combination with the gaskets. Of course, the choice for the correct glazing also has a big impact.  Special acoustic glazing will increase the performance drastically.
  • Air tightness plays an essential role in acoustic insulation. Whenever there is air leakage present, there will also be an acoustic leak. That's why Global Homez in association with LUXUS FAÇADE equips all its windows and doors with an acoustic sealing that guarantees the airtightness of the systems, in combination with the central sealing. This acoustic gasket performs best in combination with hidden accessories, as the gasket can continuously be applied on the inside.
  • Another important factor is the choice of acoustic glazing. Asymmetric double glazing (different glass thickness for the in-and outside) helps a lot in keeping out the noise. If you wish to go even further, you can choose for a layered inner glass pane, blocking out even more sound. Top acoustic performance, however, is achieved by investing in a layered inner glass pane, equipped with an acoustic PVB-foil.

 

Characteristics of the LF Alu-Wood System

              THE ALUMINIUM FRAME

              The perimeter hardware with multiple point locking gets attached to this supporting structure.

 

SOLID WOOD FRAME:

This can come in various types: oak, cherry, ash, maple and tulipwood. to avoid damage, swelling and the creation of fungi, protective surface treatments are performed on wood surfaces.

 

NYLON JOINTS

They optimize the wood/aluminum combination because, by preventing any point of contact between the two frames, they allow for the independent expansion of the two materials.

 

GLAZING BEAD

This contributes to the wood frame insulation, preventing it from being stressed by external pressure. there are two types of glazing beads used in the LF Alu-wood systems: clamp-on and snap-in. Clamp-on glazing beads are used in systems with a single panel frame and are made out of insulating material. The snap-in type are in aluminum and are used in systems with single panel frames and glazing bead; in this case, the assembly between the aluminum glazing bead and the wood frame is always done using nylon parts. Due to their quick application, glass installation is extremely simplified.

 

GASKETS

The LF Alu-wood system gaskets are mostly made of Epdm and tpE. the first material has excellent resistance to solar rays and can be used from -30 to 130 °C. tpE has a wider application range than Epdm (from -62 to +135°C) and lower conductivity.

 

PRE-CHAMBER DRAINAGE SLOTS

The large dimensions and tilt facilitate water drainage through special drainage areas on the fixed frame. Similar slits are made on the movable frame to allow for normal ventilation of the glass. The water which seeps in automaticaly drains out of the window.

 

 

                          

Top technological Performance

 

  1. HIGH ENERGY SAVINGS

The thermal insulation coefficient goes up to 0.9 W/m²K.

 

  1. THERMO-ACOUSTIC INSULATION

LF Alu-Wood doors and windows are a real barrier against sound and extreme temperatures.

 

  1. LACK OF MAINTENANCE

The sturdiness of the structure to which the mounting is fixed, the quality of the materials used and the assembly technology do not require any maintenance at all.

 

  1. DURATION

LF windows are designed and manufactured so that the properties stay the same over time, also thanks to the designated cleaning kit.

 

  1. SAFETY

The strength of the aluminium frame and the perimeter hardware is guaranteed. Since it is equipped with multiple locking points, it guarantees greater resistance against intrusion attempts.

 

  1. ITALIAN DESIGN

The exterior is aluminium with increased mechanical resistance that remains unchanged by atmospheric agents, while the interior is in wood with its high aesthetic value and warmth.

 

With a wide range of frames and finishes, our doors and windows can be adapted to the most various styles. The result is a product that creates a perfect synergy between functionality and design.

 

  1. QUALITY CERTIFICATION

LF Alu-Wood systems are EC and UNI certified to ensure the quality and conformity of the products with EU directives. LF Alu-Wood is UNI EN ISO 9001 (Quality System) and UNI EN ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) certified.

 

  1. ALWAYS CLOSE TO CUSTOMERS

For 6+ years, LUXUS FACADE has stood by its customers through all the production, installation and post-sales phases of its doors and windows.
