The Forster thermfix vario is a mullion/transom curtain wall system with a thermal break, based on the dry-glazing system. The inner steel or stainless steel profiles perform the structural bearing function, with large spans possible, even with fire resistance levels up to -/90/90 (walls).

Clip on external glazing beads are available in steel, stainless steel or aluminium, while the internal steel structural frame can be painted or powdercoated to suit the building design requirements.
