Sky-Frame Classic

Sky-Frame Classic is the first ever Sky-Frame system. It has timeless appeal with the rectilinear window assembly, combining a classic window angle with an innovative application. The energy efficient system is made of aluminum and glass-fiber-reinforced plastic (GRP) sections and insulated glass. The slim frames span from floor to ceiling and are fitted flush, with minimum rolling resistance when in operation. The flush assembly’s drainage system includes a recessed channel or can be completed below the raised outdoor floor covering.

Multipoint locking system:

  • Unlocking handle fitted flat on frame; operated by gentle upward movement
  • Elegant locking cylinder optional

Sky-Frame Arc

Sky-Frame Arc adds organic contours to buildings with a system of sliding elements that create curved glass fronts. The radius units operate smoothly and can be equipped with an automated drive on request. The system meets all Sky-Frame standards while opening up many additional design options for architects and builders.

Sky-Frame Automation (on request): Movement at the press of a button

Sky-Frame Guard: Outstanding burglar resistance

Sky-Frame Slope

Sky-Frame Slope can be installed with an inward or outward inclination depending on building requirements. The sliding system of distinct spatial geometry meets all Sky-Frame standards. Superior operation is achieved through the bearing assembly that can accommodate vertical and horizontal forces, and the drainage system meets all driving rain resistance requirements despite inclination.

SKY-FRAME PIVOT

The Sky-Frame pivot door makes an impression with a beautiful, eye catching design. Much more than a statement piece, the Sky-Frame pivot door creates a seamless pathway between the indoors and out. The door gracefully glides open with the gentle push on the handle, while the electromechanical multipoint locking system ensures safety and security.

The large pane of glass is held with the narrow sightline frames of Sky-Frame. Strong and energy efficient, with superior operation.

Sky-Frame 1

The 0.47” thick, single-glazed Sky-Frame 1 units are suitable for applications without thermal insulation requirements. The system also incorporates special sliding seals that offer a high level of sound control for interior applications.

Sky-Frame 2

The excellent sound and thermal control standards met by the Sky-Frame 2 technology have made it the most popular Sky-Frame solution. The slim (only 1.18” thick) double-glazed insulating glass assembly has proven to be an outstanding performer in a wide range of climate zones.

Sky-Frame 3

The Sky-Frame 3 system with its 2.13” thick insulating glass units meets the highest performance standards. The triple-glazed elements offer extra stability and even greater resistance to wind loads.

Sky-Frame Fly

When not in use, the frameless, pleated Fly insect screen fully retracts out of sight into the frame. Tear-resistant tension cords made from Vectran fiber guarantee maximum stability and weather resistance. Fly can cover openings up to 3.28’ wide.

Sky-Frame Automation

The electric drive allows simple and virtually noiseless operation of the sliding elements at the press of a button. The drive is concealed in the ceiling section and allows the window fronts to move automatically.  Requiring only a small access port through the head of the track, maintenance is never an issue if required.
