Increased door stiffness, reduced sight lines with rigid sashes, exquisite hardware integration, self-lubricating hinges, and a simple triangular glazing ring are a few aspects that set the Rehme SlimLine product apart from other steel window and door systems.
Strength & Craftsmanship
Stronger is Better. The philosophy behind the Rehme SlimLine product is to make all sight lines as slim as possible without sacrificing significant strength or stiffness. Traditional steel windows and doors are built from flimsy channel or angle iron. This weak geometry creates wobbly panels that clang when they close and poorly prevent water and air infiltration. Rehme has solved this problem by building the door and window frames from 1/2" x 2" solid cold-rolled 1018 steel bar.
The stronger alloy material creates a stronger geometry. The result is a stiffer hinged panel that feels sturdier and stops air and water better. This thin, yet stout material reduces sight lines, allowing maximum glass to enjoy the view beyond. In spite of thinner profiles, Rehme is still able to produce extra-large unitized assemblies with integrated, fully-welded, steel thresholds, which reduces the amount of field mulling and assembly. We can deliver unitized assemblies as large as 10'-10" x 19'-6" without field mulling and with no assembly required.
Simplier Glazing & Serviceability
SlimLine glazes from the exterior with a triangular metal glazing ring. Their patent pending triangular glazing bead is fabricated from four sections of their proprietary aluminum extrusion to create a single, continuous glazing ring. They build a unique glazing ring for each lite opening. The triangular extrusion has an integrated dovetail slot in it that receives a closed-cell foam spline. This foam spline further simplifies their glazing method and isolates the glazing ring from ever touching the steel. Because the foam spline sits inside the dove-tail slot, proud of the outside of the glazing ring, it creates a bit of friction against the steel muntin which holds the stop in place while the structural silicone cures. This allows the glazer to move on to the next light, and in turn decreases glazing time.
Rehme extrudes their glazing stop in the shape of a triangle because after it's installed, it mimics a traditional beveled putty glaze look, which gives the SlimLine product a very crisp traditional steel window appearance with improved performance. Since there are no fasteners or messy putty, Rehme’s product is simple to service in the event of a broken window. Any local glazer can remove the stop and replace the IG without coordinating with the manufacturer.
