G.U-966 (PVC, timber) – G.U-968 (aluminium) Stay arms without forced control (non driven tilt), type 150 oZ

The locking system oZ has non driven stay arms which from a sash rebate width of 1200 mm are connected in a way that the whole sash is pressed towards the frame evenly across its full length. The robust design of the fittings allows for the faultless functioning of smaller and medium-sized window and patio door units with the best running quality. n The innovative design of the runners distinguishes itself by the soft run in curve of the cam segment allowing the end G.U-966/150 oZ, PVC of the sash to run smoothly. Moreover, the sliding sashes move easily and accurately to any position desired. n All functions are controlled via turn handle operated with one hand: Release of central locking system, release of tilt position sliding the sash to and fro, pulling in and locking the sash. Lockable handles (via profile cylinder) for the operation from one or both sides are also available. n Optimum protection against G.U-966/150 oZ, PVC corrosion with the surface sealing ferGUard*silver. n Locking effected with standard tilt-turn locking components.

Gasket pressure control On timber, PVC and aluminium units both stay arms are connected with a metal rod ensuring equal gasket pressure across the whole sash width. The sash is prevented from warping.

G.U-966 (PVC, timber) When being closed, the sash automatically and gently engages in tilt position. It is then secure against being moved sidewards.

G.U-968 (aluminium) The fitting components are made of high-quality steel, zinc die cast and aluminium alloys; aluminium sash profiles with Euro groove 15/20 mm. The locking pins of the locking gear and of the corner transmission (with 4-leaf spring) are adjustable.

More comfort of living with slide-fold fittings G.U-922 and G.U-822 with bottom running system...

On slide-fold units with G.U-922 fittings (timber/PVC) or G.U-822 (aluminium), the running rail is mounted at the bottom. n The running rail takes up the sash weight and transmits it to the floor safely. As a result, safe functioning is provided independently of the stability of the building construction at the top – e.g. eaves of conservatories. n Folding sashes with a width up to 900 mm (timber/PVC) or 1000 mm (aluminium) and a weight up to 80 kg are manufactured from tilt-turn profiles. n Provided with peripheral gaskets, the units offer high impermeability as well as optimum heat and sound insulation. n Stylish appearance due to a flat guide rail and to runners concealed under a cover profile. n Slide-fold units come as inward or outward opening versions, applications for 3 to 7 sash units are possible. n Optimum protection against corrosion due to surface sealing ferGUard*silver.

Generous and convenient access out of doors All folding sashes are moved to the side to form a slim package: living room and garden are united to form a new living area in close touch with nature.

Optimal also for frequent use As side hung or tilt-turn sash, the passage door leaf is operated independently of the folding sashes.

Efficient ventilation All 3- to 7-sash units are equipped with a tilt-turn sash serving as passage door leaf. In secured tilt position, this sash offers an additional possibility of aeration (see overview of schemes, page 11).

... or with slide-fold fittings G.U-925 and G.U-825 with top running system

On slide-fold units with G.U-925 fittings (timber/PVC) or G.U-825 (aluminium), the running rail is mounted at the top. n Indoors, this type of fittings can optionally be used with flush floor guide, i.e. without a threshold protruding, and is therefore especially suitable for the handicapped and for wheel chair users. n Folding sashes with a width up to 900 mm (timber/PVC) or 1000 mm (aluminium) and a weight up to 80 kg are manufactured from tiltturn profiles. n Ceilings with high load capacity or ruggedly designed eaves allow for the stable fixing of the running rail at the top. n Provided with peripheral gaskets, the units offer high impermeability as well as optimum heat and sound insulation. n Applications for 3 to 7 sash units are possible. n Optimum protection against corrosion due to surface sealing ferGUard*silver.

Open position Moved to the side, the folding sashes demand only little parking space and open up the interior towards garden and terrace.

Passage door leaf in open position As side hung or tilt-turn sash, the passage door leaf is operated independently of the folding sashes.

Ventilation in secured tilt position As tilt-turn type, the passage door leaf on 3- to 7-sash units offers an additional possibility of aeration in secured tilt position. (See overview of schemes, page 11).

Great ease of operation due to best running quality

Elegance and smoothness

Matching design of windows and patio doors

Guides with 2 rollers provide the smooth running of the folding sashes. A stylish appearance is achieved with the flat guide rail. The folding sashes are moved with utmost ease: The 4-wheel running carriage ensures convenient operation; the small depth of the running rail contributes to the stylish appearance of the unit. Top-running carriages are concealed behind the guide rail.

Sliding sashes up to 900 mm width (timber/PVC) or up to 1000 mm (aluminium) are manufactured with tilt-turn profiles. As a result, optimum adaptation of window and patio doors units is achieved providing a harmonious appearance.

Secure fixing Guide rails and running rails are fixed to the frame with screws. On PVC units, secure fastening is achieved by turning the screws into the steel reinforcement of the profile. When assembling bottom running systems, the running rail is supported over its total length with a batten to ensure safe carrying of the sash weight.

Settings Guide rollers and runners can be adjusted to various sash overlap dimensions; this is how the fittings are adapted to the particular profile systems. Hinges join the folding sashes with each other and with the frame. The position of the sashes towards each other can be adjusted on the hinges by +/-2,5 mm per hinge. The runners are adjustable by +4/-1,5 mm.

Operation The single handed operation of G.U slide-fold units via turn handle is easy and comfortable. Lockable gears and handles for operation from both sides are available on request.
