The PLUS system is an exclusive minimal sliding window that features an innovative locomotion track that permits all the rim profiles stay perfectly flush to the construction surrounding materials.

The PLUS system provides the glazed shutters a superior stability by using reinforced vertical and horizontal stainless-steel bearings, and beyond that, it’s the minimalist window frame system with the best performance (on an international level) regarding watertightness, air permeability and wind resistance ratings.

This internationally patented system embodies the evolution of the classic minimalist window, with aesthetic improvements and with added technical advantages, equipping the window with perfect structural stability and improved user-experience features.

PLUS is also equipped with an exclusive anti-freeze system that provides the defrosting of possible ice formations inside the drainage channels (frame gutters), as well the anti-condensation process on the inner surfaces of the glass panels and aluminum profiles, improving the rain-water drainage, even under extreme weather conditions. This system is perfect for use in countries with extreme weather conditions, such as Switzerland, Russia and Canada.

PLUS features a hidden high security lock, a slim and elegant handle equipped with a hidden retractable lock flap, providing the window a streamlined appearance, leading to the limit the minimal essence, allowing also an improved level of security (RC2 rating), combined with an intuitive and simple user experience.
