5. Design parameters

Almost any profile cross-section can be manufactured with the following parameters:

  • Max. length 12 m (transport)
  • Max. width 1350 mm / 900 mm, depending on the flammability rating
  • Wall thickness at least 1.5 mm, normally 3 – 3.5 mm, max. 60 mm (avoiding extreme abrupt changes in wall thickness)
  • Colours basically according to RAL, homogeneous pigmentation only possible to a limited extent (glass has no pigment tolerance)
  • Undercuts are possible
  • Different wall thicknesses are possible
  • Hollow profiles are possible (mind the variations in wall thickness tolerance due to the floating mandrel)
  • Radii between 0.5 and 2 mm are required

Information regarding the dimensions of the individual profiles are given by the manufacturer.
