Centrafix™ resources

The Centrafix™ installation method is an alternative solution to the New Zealand Building Code standard installation method.

This new BRANZ Appraised and Codemark Certified installation method recesses the window or door back inside the building wall, minimising thermal losses which occur in a typical installation. This aligns all insulation elements – wall, window frame, glazing – and prevents cold air from circulating around the window and door frames.

To further simplify the Centrafix™ installation method, we have several resources available to help you quickly and easily understand how the components fit together.

We have interactive animated 3D assembly models available for several key Metro Series ThermalHEART with Centrafix™ products.

Use the Working Spec models on your device to interact with the assembly from all angles. You can also download QR codes to include in your submissions.
