Olympia HI is a glazing system for doors, windows, and shop windows, made of threechamber profiles of high quality Blyweert aluminium.
The system was designed in response to growing demand for passive house suitable windows, and to new EU rules that will mandate all new buildings must be ‘nearly zero energy’ from 2021 onwards. It delivers U-values as low as 0.79 W/m2K. With a profile width of 82mm, Ultimate’s Paul Tristram said the system offers maximum thermal performance for minimal width.
Olympia HI is made of materials that are almost 100% recyclable. The aluminium profiles can be re-melted and re-used for further processing. The product’s coatings, powder coating and anodizing are designed to be environmentally inert.
“All this makes the product very environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient,” said Tristram.
