Plathéa is Capoferri’s new line of lift&slide windows with extremely thin profiles
The recently-held Archmarathon Award in Miami saw the debut of Plathéa, the new line of lift&slide windows with extremely thin profiles from Capoferri.
Northern-Italy based Capoferri chose the Archmarathon Award – which took place 12-14 October 2017, and saw architects from all the Americas gather in Miami – to present Plathéa, its new line of lift&slide windows comprised of extremely thin profiles, capable of thermal insulation, resistance to wind loads and insulation from water infiltration, meeting the highest standards of the trade.
The combined width of the Plathéa profile can be reduced to a mere 35mm, merging design requirements, aesthetics and technical performance into a solution without compromise that provides absolute quality.
The system is based on Capoferri’s successful “lift&slide” technology, comes in stainless steel, true bronze or painted steel and can accept both double-glazed and triple-glazed glass units.
Designed to withstand wind loads from 1,000 to 5,000 Pa (hurricane) Plathéa features a mechanical thermal break, special gaskets and custom silicone joints to guarantee maximum performance when it comes to air, water and wind resistance. The lifting hardware is made from stainless steel and is concealed in a recessed floor box. While lifting the window panels is always motor-driven, the sliding movement can be either manual or automated.
