Geneo Tilt-Turn from Rehau


Ph: 800/247-9445

Rehau reports the Geneo tilt-turn window design is the industry’s first fully reinforced polymer window profile system available without the use of steel components. Geneo profiles feature Rau-Fipro, a proprietary fiber composite material similar to that employed in aerospace and racing vehicles for its outstanding strength and load capacities, Rehau reports. Rau-Fipro fiber-composite material and unique Geneo profile design combine to achieve U-values down to 0.13, STC ratings up to 45 and forced-entry resistance of Grade 20. In addition, these profiles feature a patented integrated reinforcement system, with screw channels and additional lateral stiffening.  The slim-lined profiles promote generous glass surface exposure while the absence of steel reinforcement eliminates heat bridges typically caused by integrated metal parts, according to Rehau. With an integrated 3 3/8-inch frame depth, multiple chambers and triple-pane insulating glazing, Geneo helps to achieve building energy targets, including those required by the German Passivhaus standard. Rehau will showcase the Geneo window profile in the Innovative Product Pavilion at GlassBuild America 2014.
