Less than 2 cm of visible wooden frame, more visual space, big surfaces in glass, a lot of possibilities for the interior designer.
IMAGO is the high-end Lift&Slide of the CLIMATECH range by AGB.
IMAGO is a revolutionary product because it contains the heritage of CLIMATECH but it stands out for the incredible design, completely made in wood.
A leitmotiv has always guided the designer creativity, the architect Matteo Grotto said: “I accepted no compromise: the frame and the visual elements had to disappear, but providing to have the best performance”.
In fact, IMAGO uses the CLIMATECH threshold, made by fiberglass, coming from an innovative research. CLIMATECH is the most advanced technology regarding the heat transmittance and the strength against the atmospheric agents.
IMAGO performances are the best ever: the water tightness is up to 9A, the air permeability is up to 4, the wind load is up to B3, the impact resistance is up to 1 and the heat transmittance is up to 0,69.
But performances are just the starting point. The IMAGO best feature that attracts more is the lack of jambs and transoms. The fixed sash becomes a big glass wall with an essential and almost invisible frame.
A dedicated products range completes the project: a new embedded top guide improves the appearance of this Lift&Slide and simplifies the sash mounting, plus the new compensating caps kit and the UNI-V central point. This is the newest of AGB central points’ range and it offers wide milling tolerances, compensates for the natural deformation of wood and removes the after-sales works linked to the Lift&Slide disease.
Thanks to the UNI-V and the top locking profile, keeping open the Lift & Slide, there is no contact point between the sash and the frame. What’s the result? The sash movement is completely free and gives an incredible sensation of lightness when you slide it.
At the base of this revolutionary product there is just simplicity, both in design and in the productive method.
The system is realized using the same milling cutter of every AGB Lift&Slide, mixing in a new way new elements and current processes. Thanks to the processing steps analysis, AGB guarantees production prices in comparison to the traditional CLIMATECH Lift&Slide.
On equal costs, the joiner will have a very high added-value shutter, with a design that attracts even the more demanding customers.
IMAGO breaks the laws, connects the spaces because it blends internal spaces and external ones, transforms the Lift & Slide in a design subject. It’s the new way for the architect who wants to express himself in a minimal essential and modern language!
