Built-on Roller Shutters AK-FLEX

ALUKON AK-FLEX built-on roller shutters are suitable for every building of new or renovating construction. The main advantage of AK-FLEX is its structure. It allows to adjust AK-FLEX to every thickness and construction of a wall. AK-FLEX system is compatible with all popular window models available on the market and ensures perfect thermal and acoustic insulation.

Through the structure of the body of a cassette made of EPS material, AK-FLEX offers optimal value that meets requirements and applicable market regulations. This cassette meets all energy-efficiency requirements under all standards (EvEV). This allows us to protect our construction designs for many years. The basic version of the cassette (box with a bottom inspection window from the inside 260 x 265) allows us to achieve the value of thermal insulation of 0.61 W/m2K. Based on subsequent sizes of a cassette, we are able to obtain a surprising thermal insulation value, even at the level of 0.30 W/m2K.

AK-FLEX can provide a perfect acoustic insulation. Depending on the type of a cassette, we may achieve value (Rw) at the level of 46/48 dB.

Moreover, AK-FLEX shutters system is made of materials compliant with B2 construction class according to DIN 4102, thus providing fire protection.

Additional possibilities:
  • Possibility to mount a roller shutter together with a window.
  • Possibility to use a module of integrated roll-type mosquito net with a mesh located inside the shutter’s cassette in front of the armour (looking from the inside) without the necessity to replace guides and the cassette.

Smart solutions bring about advantages

The elements of the cassette are integrated using glue (fig. violet) and assembled using screws, thus providing a perfect thermal and acoustic insulation.

The design of the upper and lower slides allows for assembly of a mosquito net in the future without the need to replace additional elements of the cassette.

AK-FLEX system includes only two types of guides (PVC or ALU) regardless of whether a shutter is provided with a mosquito net or not. If you decide to mount mosquito nets later, there will be no need to replace the guides.

AK-FLEX shutter thermal circulation

The figure below presents a thermal circulation of a standard 260 x 265 mm cassette with an external inspection.

A perfect solution for passive houses!

Perfect wind resistance

Due to ideal fitting of elements, AK-FLEX shutters feature perfect wind resistance.

Connection between the window and the shutter cassette provided via an adjusting and base profiles has been designed to ensure complete wind resistance without the use of additional measures. Due to this solution, there is no need to use additional sealing in the area of connection between the cassette and the window.
