Variants, types, materials
The ALUX arch light bands are represented by a self-supporting aluminium structure and a filler from segmented polycarbonate sheets. The colour of the polycarbonate sheets is either opal or transparent, and the thickness of the sheets depends on the required thermal insulation. For better insulating values, a combination of multiple panel thicknesses is available. The aluminium construction is usually in NATUR colour (in RAL by arrangement). If necessary, assembly with a segmented heat bridge is available. The bands correspond to the requirements of EN 14963:2006.
