Implementing architectural visions – without compromises. We value consistent architecture and with around 60 years of experience in façade construction are familiar with the diverse challenges on the path from a great idea to a built reality. With our special solutions for sliding windows, pivot doors and descending windows, we enable a new variety of window shapes, sizes, inclinations, curves and materials. Our goal: complete architectural freedom – without compromises.
We find innovative, tailor-made solutions for every architectural challenge.
Thanks to the patented air-lux sealing concept, almost any special solution is 100% impermeable.
In addition to functionality, one of the biggest challenges when developing new openable façade elements is performance, i.e. impermeability. The use of air-lux air seals guarantees the best possible performance against driving rain, wind and noise.Learn more about the sealing system
No matter how extraordinary our customers’ wishes are, with air-lux, there are no compromises when it comes to function and performance.
Thanks to the patented, inflatable air-lux air seal, air-lux pivot doors and windows can be used to create shapes that were previously impossible with conventional sealing concepts. Windows and doors become a fascinating design element, as their shapes change when they open.
Pivot doors are an impressive alternative to conventional revolving doors, especially for entrance areas with large openings. With their free shapes ? anything from round to asymmetrical ? the pivot windows are an exciting design element for architects.
Big is a good thing – but the bigger the better!
This also applies to guillotine windows. For a project in London, we have developed an XXL window with a length of 11m and a height of 2.3m.
Different from our descending window, the window does not disappear into the basement. It goes upwards.
But one thing remains the same. 100% opening combined with 100% performance.
With this special lowering window, a three-sided glazing construction is lowered into the floor by the push of a button. With a weight of almost 5 tons, this lowering front is a real eye-catcher! It can be moved almost noiselessly and shows 100% performance due to the patented air seal.
For a project in Hong Kong we have developed 5 pcs. Pivot doors with a height of 7.5 m. The doors are almost 1.5 m wide and have a weight of approx. 550 kg.
Each of the five doors has 2 pcs. pneumatic air seals which provide a unique performance.
We can not only be big, but also tight!
“Freedom of design means being able to realise my vision without compromises. That requires innovative partners that bring the extraordinary to life, such as air-lux and the windows installed on the concrete façade.”
