The Stretto profile is used in windows and doors when a minimal look is preferred. With several options for the glazing bead and material, many different looks can be achieved. Combining excellent ability to integrate with the architecture and high technology, fully meets the requirements of energy saving, comfort of living and sustainability. Thanks to its unique size, the minimum cross-sections and the use of 4 materials Stretto is ideal for the restoration of both contemporary and minimalist spaces. The use of the Stretto system is essential for the type of project where a slim profile is needed but at the same time guaranteeing, high thermal performance and acoustic insulation.
Available Glazing Beads:
Available in galvanized steel, stainless steel, corten steel and architectural bronze
Due to the physical and technical properties of steel, thin, strong and high-performing profiles can be obtained which allow for maximum versatility in the design of the fixture while reducing the visual impact; the result is a lightness and transparency that provides elevated luminosity in the interiors.
The steel used to produce its profiles is the alloy FeP02, with hot zinc covering GZ200 (200 g /m3 on both sides) that ensures protection from oxidization both internally and externally.
The subsequent skin-passing of the layer of zinc determines an ideal finish which guarantees better adherence during the painting process; this is carried out with polyester powder coating (oven-baked at 180° C) available in a range of colors, in gloss, semi-gloss and sandblasted versions.
The 316L is ideal for maritime environments with scotch-brite, painted, or gloss finish. Stainless steels do not rust if exposed to atmospheric agents and are extremely durable as well as resistant to corrosion. Stainless steel requires minimum maintenance.
The physical-mechanical features of stainless steel mean that sections can be of reduced dimensions, thus lessening the visual impact of the fixture while enhancing the luminosity of the interiors. With thermal conductivity 10 times lower than aluminium, thermal break elements have a low transmittance value.
The resistance of Corten steel to corrosion is 6-8 times higher compared to traditional steels, as well as featuring double resistance to tensile strength, thus allowing the realization of high-performing fixtures of large dimensions and weight while maintaining the thinness of the sections.
Special alloys obtained with copper, chrome and phosphorus, corten steels have the characteristic of self-protection with a patina on the surface that prevents corrosion from spreading and which gradually takes on colors and shades evoking the passing of time.
The color and shininess of this alloy, together with the hardness and resistance to corrosion make it a precious and original element for architectural solutions in both old and new architecture. Surfaces in glossy or burnished brass can be an expression of luxury and refinement, or tradition.
When this alloy comes into contact with the air it takes on the richness and the reflections of antique bronze while maintaining its physical properties intact.
The natural oxidization determines a level of self-protection that makes the finished product ideal for using in difficult environmental conditions such as maritime settings.
We use the alloy OT67 in which the high percentage of copper (67%) guarantees great resistance to corrosion, while the zinc (33%) improves the mechanical properties of hardness and breaking load.
Another excellent product in terms of sustainability – re-usability is 100%
