Bonding the pane with the sash profile transfers the stiffness of the glass pane to the sash and makes the entire system more intrinsically stable. This means that standard elements can be produced entirely without any steel. Alternatively more stable elements can be fabricated in combination with steel and GEALAN STV®.
In addition, it is possible to greatly improve the stiffness of arched and slanted windows for custom designs. The STV® static dry glazing technology developed by GEALAN involves bonding the glass and sash profile using an adhesive tape designed specifically for building windows while still being able to pack the glass as usual.
