Series 40 Half Hour Fire
A versatile beaded fixed frame system with versions offering 30 minute Fire Integrity, enhanced acoustics through use of thicker glass and improved thermal performance with double glazed units.
Recommended maximum frame sizes (mm)
Standard white (HIPCA semi- gloss).
Any standard powder paint, wood grain or anodised finish to order.
A Series 40 window will reduce heat loss by up to 50% using standard glass and up to 65% with a thermally efficient glass (low-E). Further improvements are possible using sealed glass units that create triple glazing. Perimeter mastic seals will almost eliminate drafts and ensure much greater comfort near the window.
The effectiveness of the insulation is measured by U-values, the lower the figure the better the insulation.

A Series 40 window set 100mm apart from the existing window will reduce noise levels by 45dB (decibels) with higher figures achieved using thicker glass. In most circumstances this will achieve World Health Organisation guidelines for quiet living and working environments.

The Series 40 system is available with a fire option offering 30 minute integrity. For security it is untested but as a fixed pane and glazed with 6.8mm laminated glass it will provide some resistance to an intruder and, based on comparisons with other fixed systems, is likely to offer blast protection to the same level as anti shatter film in conjunction with bomb blast net curtains.
