VELFAC 200 is a beloved design classic in both the UK and the international market. The unique 54mm “floating frame” delivers excellent performance and maximise the amount of daylight into a building.
In 1985 Danish structural engineer Carl Hammer developed the VELFAC 200 system - the first wood/aluminium window with a “true” aluminum sash instead of an aluminium cladding. Simplicity was the guiding principle for the development of our window system and its unique construction.
"The window system has remained unchanged in terms of design since we launched it. The technical construction has of course been optimized and improved several times, primarily for the sake of insulation. But the 54 mm sash, which lies beyond the frame, has not been altered. This allows the frame to 'hang freely' in the wall giving the impression of a floating frame."
- Carl Hammer, , former structural engineer and developer of VELFAC 200
VELFAC windows frame can be built-in so the window is flush with the wall. This adds a stylish finishing touch , and makes the outside and the inside blend together, giving an uninterrupted view of the surroundings.
The VELFAC 200 system is thoroughly tested to meet and exceed current requirements for energy efficiency and safety.
Frames can be divided by mullions or transoms to create the aesthetic and function you require. Sashes with different opening functions can be mounted within the same frame. VELFAC windows can also be created in many different shapes.
As a result, you can specify a window that suits the building style and architecture, or create a feature by combining different shapes and sizes.
VELFAC 200 has left its mark on many significant buildings both in UK and Europe. The system offers a large degree of design freedom and allow extra daylight into any building. For these reasons it’s and it became one of architects’ preferred choice.
