THERMAL FRAME WINDOW WALL

Series 4800-T

The Series 4800-T was designed at the request of elite luxury architects. Gorgeous homes were forced to use commercial window systems to handle the performance loads of large glass facades. The craftsmanship of such systems would pale in comparison to the Fleetwood products in every other opening. The Series 4800-T can span enormous openings without compromising fit and finish.

 

The Series 4800-T is available with operable inserts (Series 450-T casement, awning and hopper).

Product Highlights

Design Notables
Visual Continuity:

The Series 4800-T was designed to provide large glass facades while pairing well with the Series 3800-T (4 ½” frame). Both the 4800-T and 3800-T have a 1-7/16” perimeter frame and 2-7/16” TDL, allowing for consistent lines across your elevation as you blend product types as appropriate for their respective openings.

 

Inside Glaze Option:

The Series 4800-T can be fabricated with the shelf to the interior or exterior.

 

Matching Sliding Door Lines:

A Series 4070-T fixed panel can be inserted into a 4800-T to keep floor lines at the same height when installed on the same plane or in the same room.

Strength & Sizes
Large Sizes:

How big do you need? The Series 4800-T can handle enormous spans without structure or inserts. This is accomplished with our patent pending Glass Anchor that bolsters each suspended vertical and horizontal.

 

Dead Load & Shear Stress:

Support clips are provided with every TDL to support the glass weight as well as provide additional bolstering for wind loads. Each clip is constructed from aluminum and connects with three fasteners.

Energy & Glass
Custom Strut:

Each Series 4800-T is made with a custom designed thermal strut. Fleetwood designed the strut to allow the Engineering Department to fulfill the high expectation design notables.

 

U-Factor Performance:

The energy test results of the Series 4800-T are outstanding because of the minimal frame, specialized engineering, and custom thermal strut. For example, with low emissivity glass, the Series 4800-T achieves a 0.25 U-Factor.

 

Numerous Glazing Options:

The Series 4800-T offers more glass choices than any other aluminum fixed window in the luxury home market. This is possible with the number glass depth choices and the myriad of glass offered in the industry.

 

Massive Glass:

Insulated glass larger than 100 square feet is available in the Series 4800-T.

Smart Design – Installation
Factory Engineered – Field Assembled:

The patent pending Glass Anchor was designed out of aluminum to withstand highly corrosive environments. Its unique design allows for field assembly that does NOT require a licensed specialist.

 

Gorgeous Finish:

Each TDL is equipped with a Glass Anchor Cover that can be installed at the project’s completion so the aluminum finish is not damaged during construction.

 

Nail-On Slim Perimeter Frame:

The head, sill, and jambs ONLY reveal a 1-7/16” sightline and clever building design can hide even more. The integral nail fin offers peace of mind during waterproofing.

Outstanding Details
Hidden Weep Slots:

Most window-walls include obvious drainage holes/slots in the horizontal frame members. The Series 4800-T was engineered with visible weep slots only in the sill.

 

Operable Inserts:

Series 450-T casement and awning windows can be inserted into any opening created within a Series 4800-T system.

 

Product Marriage:

The 5 ¾” frame depth was chosen to allow installers to abut the Series 4800-T to a 2-track Series 4070-T, 3-track Series 3070 and 3-track Series 3070-T.

 

Fewer Distractions:

The vertical and horizontal TDL shapes in most residential windows have numerous seams where the glass is pinned into place. Minimalists will appreciate the one-piece Glass Anchor Cover that is unique to the Series 4800-T.
