At the touch of a button, the entire window front sinks into the floor as if by magic, allowing the interior to merge with the exterior – with absolutely seamlessly. The advantage over a sliding window front: The slider does not have to be pushed in front of a fixed element. This allows the entire window façade to be opened.
Sufficient space underneath the glazing is required for a technical room to position the descending window in the open state. The controller, motor, drive shaft and counterweight are also housed here.
The unique air-lux sealing concept with all-round inflatable ring seals guarantees 100% impermeability against driving rain, wind and noise.
the seal is vented at the touch of a button. After unlocking and venting, the descending window disappears silently into the floor by a constant push of a button.
the descending window is closed by a constant push of a button. As soon as the window is completely closed, the LED in the button goes out and air is pumped into the seal.
The descending window is located on a stable support mechanism connected to a counterweight, which balances the descending window perfectly. The moving parts are raised and lowered silently by means of an electric drive. In the event of a power failure, the descending window can be closed manually from the technical room.
As descending window disappears completely into the ground, enough space beneath the glazing must be available to accommodate it when open. This technical area includes the control, motor, drive shaft and the counterweight, and must be accessible for maintenance work. The dimensions of the technical area are determined and logged by air-lux.
The descending window is operated by a button with a deadman’s switch and visual monitoring of the movement. The buttons are activated via a key switch. This prevents unauthorised people from operating the descending window.
Big is good – bigger is better! In the case of descending windows, the size is limited only by the maximum possible glass sizes:
The larger the achievable descending window, the more impressive the effect when open. Different glass thicknesses and safety glass with bullet resistance can be installed.
Whether a special wood, architectural bronze or stone, We produce sunken windows in different real materials and surfaces. The core is always our high quality, thermally insulated aluminium profile clad with the required material.
We manufacture and assemble the air-lux windows in compliance with the machine guidelines. This means that personal protection is guaranteed at all times, whether during the operation of the descending window, during a power outage or in severe weather conditions.
Glass to a thickness of 60 mm can and bullet-resistant safety glass can also be constructed.
