SMARTFIT™

Smartfit™ is a fully integrated ready-to-fit window system offering superior weathertightness.

The windows and doors arrive with built-in head flashings, jamb flashings, cavity closers, end dams, sill support bars and clever water management features.

You no longer need to worry about internal tapes, PEF rods or expanding foams. So there’s less onsite materials, waste and handling, saving you time and money.

All you need to do is place the window in the hole and screw into position through an outer fixing fin.

At the end of the day, you can close in a house much faster, and get onto other jobs sooner.

PERFORMANCE & COMPLIANCE

  • Compliance with NZS 4211
  • Installation system tested in accordance with E2/VM1
  • BRANZ appraised - appraisal number 868 (2014)
  • 10 Year Warranty

The windows and doors have built-in head flashings, jamb flashings, cavity closers, end dams, sill support bars and clever water management features.

Internal tapes, PEF rods, expanding foams or silicones are no longer required. So there are less onsite materials, waste and handling, saving time and money.

Simply place the window in the hole and screw into position through an outer fixing fin.

Much has been done to improve the weathertightness with these windows. The window opening weatherline has moved out to the face of the wall underlay. This no longer allows the weatherline to extend inwards to the back side of the internal wall lining, so any failure water would drop into the cavity instead of onto the framing trimmer.The air seal has also moved out to the wall underlay line.

The window is screwed into position through an outer fixing fin then Smartfit 60mm flashing tape is applied over the fin and wall underlay to create an air seal.

When used in conjunction with a 'rigid air barrier' early close in and a lock up ready build can be achieved. Pre-line can start up to three weeks earlier than the conventional construction method.
