T8000

Large motorised roofs with spans up to 3.6 m wide.

Retractable roofs specially designed to provide larger lighting apertures between beams. The innovative design of its profiles makes this roof the sturdiest option in the range.

The T8000 series is the most robust in our range of motorised retractable roofs. Its design is specially created to cover large spaces, with the minimum amount of visual obstacles and with excellent air tightness and insulation results.

Extra-reinforced system to achieve larger dimensions.

The profiles of the retractable roofs T8000 series have been designed with extra reinforcements so as to achieve larger dimensions with a smaller number of panels. Thanks to this unique design, glass panels up to 3.6 m wide can be installed.

Custom glass and panels.

  • Laminated safety glass up to 4+4 mm.
  • Insulating glass with 3+3 laminated glass inside, 16 mm space and 4, 5 or 6 mm tempered glass on the outside. Up to 28 mm in total.
  • 16, 20 or 25 mm cellular polycarbonate.
  • 16, 20 or 25 mm sandwich panel.

Aluminium profile finishes.

The T8000 retractable roof profiles can be lacquered in the colours of the RAL Classic range, or given an anodised finish or an imitation-wood effect. Choose the finish for your retractable roof.

Laminated glass

Laminated glass

Laminated glass consists of the joining of several glass sheets of any thickness, by means of intermediate films made with translucent plastic materials. These films are mostly made of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and UV-activated resins, or simply a mixture of their ingredients.

These films can be transparent, translucent or coloured (sometimes the colours may have been applied directly to the interlayer, although it is the sheet that is usually coloured) and include practically everything: patterned paper, LEDs, fabrics, etc. They can also receive acoustic and solar control treatment.

Laminated glass properties.

Its most remarkable property is that, in case of fracture, the plastic film prevents glass fragments from shattering. This considerably improves its mechanical performance in case of impact and avoids the danger of glass splinters being released. This is possible thanks to its sheets or thickness (PVB).

The greater the number of sheets, the safer it is against intrusion, dramatically increasing safety for people and objects under the roof. The UNE-EN 356 standard classifies these glass sheets in a scale comprising different levels, depending on their resistance to impact.

Laminated glass is also known as safety glass, although this is just one of the types on the market and not all safety glass (such as tempered glass) is necessarily laminated.

Laminated tempered glass

Laminated tempered glass

Laminated-tempered glasses combine the qualities of both types of glass.

Laminated glass consists of the joining of several glass sheets of any thickness, by means of intermediate films made with translucent plastic materials. These films are mostly made of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and UV-activated resins, or simply a mixture of their ingredients.

Its most remarkable property is that, in case of fracture, the plastic film prevents glass fragments from shattering. This considerably improves its mechanical performance in case of impact and avoids the danger of glass splinters being released. This is possible thanks to its sheets or thickness (PVB).

Tempered glass is a type of safety glass, processed by thermal or chemical treatments, to increase its thermal resistance compared to regular glass. This is achieved by compressing the exterior surfaces and tensioning the interior surfaces.

Thanks to its special composition, when a tempered sheet of glass is broken by accident, it crumbles into small granular pieces instead of splintering into large jagged fragments. Granular pieces are less likely to cause injury.

Insulating glass

Insulating glass

Insulating glass, also known as double glazing, multiple glazing, or Climalit (trademark), consists of two or more glass sheets separated by a space that prevents any contact between the glass.

The inner space between the glass sheets is usually filled with dry air or other inert gas, but it is also possible to form a vacuum, thus improving their performance. In any case, the spaces are hermetically sealed to prevent air flow and the entry of pollutants.

There are also insulating glasses with special 'very low emissivity' treatments, a transparent metal coating on the inner surface, which provides 50% more insulation than conventional double glazing.

Insulating glass can be combined with other solar control functions, low emissivity, etc.

Insulating glass properties.

If there is a positive aspect to double glazing compared to other glass models, it is the possibility of creating customised glass according to the performance required. Therefore, this type of glass can incorporate heat, acoustic and safety insulation features.

For example: a product with highly beneficial features can be achieved by combining an insulating glass with a low-emissivity and solar control glass all in the same panel, even adding a laminate or acoustic laminate.

In addition, thanks to its space this glass offers very low thermal transmittance and therefore great thermal insulation, which will provide air conditioning savings of over 50%.

Finally, it must be noted that the gas contained in the space will also greatly influence the properties of the glass.

For example: the main objective of the SF6 is to improve the acoustic insulation by reducing approximately 3 dB. Argon, on the other hand, has a low heat conductivity, lower than that of air, which provides greater thermal insulation (reduction of the U value by more than 0.3 W/m²). On occasions, a mixture of two of these gasses is used to achieve specific properties.

Chamber size and energy transmittance.

The thermal transmittance (U-value) in a glass sheet has an inverse relationship to its thickness. The higher the interlayer profile (and therefore the greater the distance between the glass sheets), the lower the radiation transmission (the U-value decreases).

Please note: in spaces greater than 15-18 mm, the air currents created inside them increase energy transmission, so the generic rule referred to here does not apply.
