S 8000 profile system

for a perfect living environment

The S 8000 profile system demonstrates GEALAN's consistent focus on the
needs of the market. The development objective for this system with rebate
gaskets and an installation depth of 74 mm was to create a cost-effective
profile with optimum use of materials, for easier and more efficient fabrication
by window manufacturers.

More about S 8000

Benefits of S 8000

Installation depth of 74 mm

The installation depth of 74 mm ensures excellent heat and sound insulation

Efficient use of material

Efficient use of material in the profile geometry saves resources and thus helps the environment

Economical efficiency

Large main chamber for large steel stiffening elements, with only one stiffening steel required for frames, sashes and mullions

Optional passive ventilation

The patented ventilation system GECCO for a controlled exchange between inside and outside air provides improved room climate and greater living comfort.

Versatile surfaces

Available in a wide selection of GEALAN-acrylcolor® colours and (wood grain) decor foils

Statics: large-scale planning

Particular attention was paid to profile stability when developing the S 8000 system. The main chambers for the steel stiffening element were therefore made corresponding large.

The result is very high flexural rigidity of the standard stiffening elements, which in turn benefits the profile stability. This opens the door for the construction of large elements, and also allows window manufacturers to meet specific demands for large windows.

  • The maximum height of the window elements is determined by the window width and the resulting overall surface area.
  • When windows are large, the window elements are subject to high forces.
  • Stable steel stiffening elements ensure high flexural rigidity and allow the construction of large windows.

Statics: large-scale planning

S 8000 with five chambers
  • Excellent stability thanks to large steel stiffening elements in the frame and sash
  • Easy to clean, thanks to a generously large frame rebate
  • Available in either flush design with a double-bevelled glazing bead, or semi-flush design with round glazing beads
S 8000 with six chambers
  • Outstanding insulation thanks to six chambers in both frame and sash
  • Easy to clean, thanks to a generously large frame rebate
  • Available in either flush design with a double-bevelled glazing bead, or semi-flush design with round glazing beads

Colouring in the S 8000 system

The coloured acrylic layer is twice as hard as the PVC surface of white windows. It is highly scratch-resistant and is largely resistant to the effects of weather. The semi-matt, smooth and non-porous GEALAN-acrylcolor® surface is insensitive to accumulations of dust and dirt. There is no spalling or chipping and no need for laborious repainting. GEALAN-acrylcolor® windows require virtually no maintenance and are extremely easy to care for.
GEALAN boasts over 35 years of experience in the coextrusion of colored profiles in acrylcolor. This innovative technique differs substantially from other coloring processes on the market. During the coextrusion process, the acrylic glass layer is indivisibly joined to the PVC profile. To this we owe the durability and inalterability of the color over time.
The white layer beneath the infrared permeable acrylic glass layer reflects most of the solar radiation. The result is a very low overheating of the profiles. The temperature differences between white and colored profiles are therefore surprisingly small.
Wood effect
The windows of the S 9000 system and the aluminum folders combine the advantages of PVC and aluminum. Functionality combined with a modern look and design of aluminum that give a touch of exclusivity to the elements while maintaining the extraordinary insulation values of PVC windows. The windows with aluminum folder are not only resistant and long lasting, but also offer the possibility to realize any color project.
For your windows you can choose between fascinating wood-effect or solid-color films: filmed externally and internally in classic white or filmed on both sides for a particularly refined effect. You can choose from a vast assortment of decorations and colors the one that best suits you and your home.
