Incorporating expansive spans of glazing in homes designed for efficiency can often mean the loss of a significant amount of heat. A new thermally broken suite of steel and brass window and door systems has solved this issue. We spoke to Platinum Window Systems about combining striking glazing with efficient homes.

Designed in Italy and manufactured in New Zealand, a new range of window and door systems is allowing for an unparalleled level of design freedom while maintaining the integrity of passive and high performing homes.

“They are available in brass, corten steel, stainless steel and galvanised steel,” Platinum Window Systems’ Stuart Robinson says. “Brass is by far the most popular choice in New Zealand, with both clients and architects.”

The brass range is available in either a natural or polished finish, or pre-burnished which essentially allows for the frames to have an instantly aged look and patina from when they are installed.

Platinum Window Systems orders the materials directly from Italy for every project. “We receive the profiles in six metre lengths and then manufacture them at our factory in Onehunga,” Stuart says.

 

Being able to incorporate expansive spans of glazing while not compromising on the efficiency of a home’s thermal performance is a significant step forward in the sustainable building sector.

“The first benefit of this suite is the innate structural stability, which allows for the expansive spans of glazing with strikingly thin profiles.”

But the second, and arguably the most significant breakthrough in terms of technological advancement in this area, is the fact that these window and door frames are thermally broken - a unique benefit of this suite.

“There are very few other steel systems that are thermally broken simply because of the R & D investment that it takes to develop the range of suites we have to offer. So our systems represent the very latest technology.”

The importance of incorporating thermally broken window and door frames is becoming a central consideration for many clients, architects and designers with more people aware of the impact on the overall efficiency of a home, Stuart says.

“Combined with double or triple glazing, thermally broken frames create the most efficient buildings, ensuring homes are kept warm or cool, depending on the season, with less energy.”

 

Platinum Window Systems is the exclusive manufacturing partner of Italian firm Secco Sistemi - a global leader with 70 years of experience in the production of integrated systems in steel and brass for doors, windows and facades.

“In order to ensure we provide the highest quality, we offer design, manufacturing and installation services. In this way we can control the entire process and guarantee the quality of every product.”

 

Based in Auckland, Platinum Window Systems works closely with architects and clients to achieve high-end bespoke window and door solutions at the forefront of technology and design.
