Blast Sliding Windows

Blast Sliding Windows

The blast resistant sliding aluminium window is a purpose-made module, suitable for installation into punched or prepared openings. The window sections combine the versatility of aluminium and the strength of steel to create a functional yet aesthetically pleasing window. The windows are available as a horizontal slider and fixed lights.

The window will primarily fulfil the requirements of a thermally broken partially wind and weather resistant glazing system, with the additional benefit of bullet resistance when closed.

By changing the internal frame composition, it is also possible incorporate bullet resistance into this product also.
