Zola Windows now offers its PanoramicView Lift & Slide with greater design flexibility, slimmer frames and improved airtightness for high-performance building envelopes. The fixed-glass portion is completely frameless, offering a sleek profile to enhance the minimalist look. The operable sliding sash now has a sash width of only 3.5 inches, but can carry an enormous, 8-foot-high by 10-foot-wide panel of glass, offering maximized views using wide uninterrupted expanses of glass. Adding to the versatility of wide expanse glass with minimized interruption at corners, the PanoramicView Lift & Slide has a superior visible light transmittance of 71 percent. Airtightness has also been upgraded by incorporating a quadruple compression seal along sides and head of the sliding sash, offering Passive House level air sealing and gasket design. The hardware and track system is fully concealed, and the flush threshold is ADA compatible while being air, snow and watertight.
