A fresh sheet

312latrobe_3EDGE Architectural double glazed MAX framingYou only get one chance with a clean sheet of paper, you have to make it count. U-MAX™ thermally broken window systems and MAX™ are our fresh sheet.

With little significant innovation in Australia’s architectural frame industry since the 60s, we dared to be different and developed a complete new product range with fresh feature sets across it. We adopted international best practices for energy conservation and adapted them for Australian conditions to meet Australian standards.

The U-MAX™ and MAX™ double glazed suites were designed and tested for strength, reliability, longevity and energy efficiency, but also for beauty and interchangeability. You choose the right frame with the right features to achieve your vision for your project.

Free your design and the rest will follow.

EDGE Architectural’s features walk away from 50 year old technology and offer benefits relevant to today’s commercial building practices. They’re so intrinsic to the ranges, we call it our DNA.

The U-MAX™ and MAX™ double glazed suites were designed and tested for strength, reliability, longevity and energy efficiency, but also for beauty and interchangeability. You choose the right frame with the right features to achieve your vision for your project.

Discover our DNA
  • Designed to comply with Australian building standards
  • U-MAX™ thermal extrusions can be offered in non-thermal frames when thermal break is not required
  • Cost savings by choosing MAX™ frames when indicated compared to using U-MAX™ throughout
  • The same suite can be used on all facades, ensuring exactly the same appearance
  • U-MAX™ suites offer low profile 44mm face frames or 60mm frames
  • Common head and sill sightlines for consistent appearance and aesthetics
  • Products can be coupled together and mixed to change the glass plane or make manufacture simpler, especially with doors
  • Consistent features throughout EDGE architectural framing systems
  • Designed for thermal break applications with a “best of breed” approach for strength and aesthetics
  • U-MAX™ accepts 24mm to 28mm IGU’s dry glazed
  • MAX™ accepts 24mm – 28mm IGU’s and 30mm – 34mm IGU’s dependant on frame type
  • GEN™ accepts 6mm – 13.52mm IGU’s
  • Single glazed spandrel adaptor option
  • Flush glazed with 12mm glass bite in all configurations
  • Eliminates visible drain slots in the face of horizontal frame members
  • Improved glazing methodology with Watershed technology
  • Most suites can be internal or external glazed
  • 100mm and 150mm frame depths
  • 60mm sight line generally
  • Optional low profile 44mm outer frame
  • Glass plane options for Centred / Offset or Front glazing
  • Awning and Casement sash options
  • 50mm thick commercial hinged, Bifold, Pivot and Sliding doors
  • Single and Multi sliding door tracks, top hung and bottom sliding
  • Apartment sliding door suite in 100mm – 150mm frame depths and multi sliding track systems
  • Dry glazed with high performance gaskets
  • Anti-stretch, anti-drop out gaskets
  • Suited to wet glazed if preferred
  • Simplified and unique assembly frame, especially for front glazed products
  • Caulk joints to maintain joint flexibility and performance

Interconnected, interdependent, interacting

The ranges in EDGE Architectural Glazing Systems benefit from a community of people, organisations, processes and elements interacting to create a system, the EDGE ecosystem. These components are tightly linked together to assure exquisite performance from our framing systems.

Explore the EDGE ecosystem: More than meets the eye

It’s the products, of course. Each facet of the EDGE framing systems has been considered, reconsidered, revised and reconsidered again, but that’s just one network of interaction. It’s also partnering, specification and logistics and all the factors comprised therein. Products, partnering, specification, logistics, internal factors, external factors, networks, interactions all linked together, all contributing to the EDGE ecosystem.

Explore the ecosystem

 

The benefits of EDGE Architectural principled feature set include:

  • Visual unity and seamless integration between suites
  • Concealed transom drainage system directs water over and around the edge of glass
  • Increase quality control and cost savings with factory fitted during transom assembly
  • Common screw flute centres across U-MAX™, MAX™ and GEN™
  • Anti drop-out beads
  • Pocket design is clean and uncluttered with no restricting legs
  • Split mullion design for most suites allows mix and matching

 

Ensure people experience your projects as you intend. The MAX™ and U-MAX™ double glazed suites complement one another, allowing you to achieve the form and function you want for today and the future.
