AA®720 Reflex Technology
Due to the anticipated amendments to Approved Document L, and the continued market demands for high performance windows, Kawneer has developed a unique system it can apply to it's polyamide thermal breaks to give further thermal improvements to the window, and reduce heat transfer through the profile.
 
The inclusion of a low emmisivity reflective foil to the thermal 'flags' allows the AA®720 Casement to achieve U-values as low as 1.0 W/m2K for a CEN size window with a warm edge spacer *.

Glazing
Glazing and panels up to 56mm thick can be accommodated to allow for the inclusion of triple glazing for the very highest thermal and acoustic performance.
 
The additional choice of sotline** or security beads provide further design flexibility.

Security
Kawneer's AA®720 Casement Window is due to undergo security testing in accordance with PAS 24: 2012.

Other Product Features
In addition to the features described, the Kawneer AA®720 Casement Window offers market leading weight capabilities for a top hung window. With a capability of up to 130kg, high performance acoustic and/or security glass applications can be easily accommodated within the standard window without additional reinforcements or fabrication requirements.
 
With a choice of locking or non locking handles in a range of finishes, the system can be incorporated effectively in a number of applications.

Weather Performance
The AA®720 Casement Window is currently undergoing stringent weather and performance testing in accordance with BS 6375: Part 1: 2009 by a UKAS accredited independent test centre.

The Kawneer AA®720 Casement Window has been designed with flexibility and ease of fabrication as key requirements. The system provides the option of internal or external glaze options, to suit a variety of applications. The system incorporates a standard hardware groove, to provide cost effective locking hardware without compromising performance or security.
