Booklets and plans allow your design department to choose the technical solution best suited to the project. To make it easier for the user, the documentation includes:

  • all components,
  • drawings,
  • principle cross-sections and usage information for each system.


Your manufacturing manuals.
With regard to manufacturing, we have emphasised simplicity. Data for start-up, manufacturing and assembly is detailed through summary tables and 3D technical cross-sectionals...


Your Specifications catalogue
Your Specifications Binder and/or CD Rom is a highly effective decision-making tool. It contains detailed and specific data on the entire range of applications of KAWNEER aluminium systems:

  • technical descriptions,
  • 3D sections,
