The name “Palladio TABS®” is perhaps not the most intuitive or obvious for a frame, however there are numerous aspects contained in the acronym: Palladio TABS® (TermoAreoBlindoxScocca).
It is a special ventilated frame with high heat insulation capacity (Palladio TABS® patented by Palladio Srl) and the profiles that form the frame create a specific break in the thermal bridge, highly innovative with respect to the other solutions currently available for metal frames, first and foremost those that use profiles with an insulating layer between (often of plastic) in the centre with respect to the section, or between the two metal parts that form the profile section of the frame. This solution, albeit valid in terms of breaking the heat flow, considerably reduces the mechanical strength of the profile and obviously affects the overall strength of the frame.
The ”Palladio TABS®” provides effective heat insulation thanks to open slits in at least one of the two tubular profiles of the frame. The number and shape of the slits depend on the results of the fluid dynamics tests that are conducted. The shape of these special apertures creates a continuous airflow which, due to the different temperature inside and outside, creates a constant micro- movement of air inside the profile chamber, i.e. a heat regulating action that improves heat insulation in both the summer and winter. It is effectively a continuous heat barrier that also provides perimeter ventilation along the edge where the glass is fitted, hence eliminating potential problems of the glass panels misting up. The frame guarantees a perfect seal, unchangeable shape of the frame and enduring strength, together with high resistance to attempts at vandalism and intrusion.
Palladio gives life to architecture, cooperating with the architects and builders, and also those who live with the constructions day after day. In a market that demands high performance customised solutions, Palladio offers an innovative interpretation of frames to assist each and every customer, who are nowadays much more accurate and informed.
The steel profiles are a synonym for strength, quality and design. Palladio’s highly specialised craftsmen transform creativity into production of the frame profiles pursuing a logic of service and customization. Palladio guides the world of frames to create doors, windows and facades, where each single element is scrupulously prepared down to the smallest detail. New finishes and unusual colour combinations, painting in all the RAL colours, the most refined and exclusive cladding and finishes, these are just a few of the solutions the company uses to satisfy the style needs of highly professional architects and demanding customers.
