Guillotine

Creating height and flooding your interior with light.

The basic guillotine window comprises two vertically sliding frames. Vitrocsa offers multiple fixed and mobile configurations, either hidden or visible.

The structure is anodised 25 micron aluminium alloy, in a natural colour finish. As an option, the thermolacquered or anodised versions are available in an infinite choice of colours. The width of the vertical profile is 18 mm. The system operates using a high-precision counterweight operation for ultra-simple manageability. Various button locking system options are available, and the system can be motorised.

OPTIONS

A range of motorisation equipment
is available as an option:

MOTORISATION

Our motorisation system is built into the architectural design, allowing for minimal interference, and simple, quiet opening.

The motorisation system is fully hidden in the top part of our Vitrocsa frame and only requires a height of 12 cm. The maximum driving force is 180 N for a maximum weight of 1200 kg per motor. The maximum motion speed is 167 mm/s-1 and slows when a second leaf is driven.

The system has an automatic electrical closure which is compatible with all home automation opening systems: digicode, push-button, badge reader, etc. To ensure complete safety, the system stops when it meets an obstacle.
