The window that opens around a corner uses unique Air-Lux technology with an inflatable seal making it not only suitable for horizontal sliding windows, but also for many other opening types. The combination of sliding sashes and fixed glazing from an insulated aluminum frame construction with proven profile technology enables a wide range of opening types and special designs:
- Corner openings (inside and outside corner), with or without mullion
- Middle butt plate in the middle free of posts with all-glass optic
Combination With Standard Elements
Standard windows, balcony doors, entrance doors or tilt and turn windows can also be integrated into the Air-Lux system - also with mullion and transom facades. Thanks to the consistent profile and surface throughout, the combination of elements is not visually perceptible.
Sliding Sashes up to 25m²
With the aid of the air seal, the system can accommodate more construction tolerances than conventional sealing systems. This in turn allows sash sizes up to a maximum width of 8 × 3.1 m (W × H) or a maximum height of 3.1 × 6 m (W × H) - and this with frameless installation flush with the floor and ceiling. With a weight of almost 2 tons, such a slide acts like a glass facade that can be moved sideways silently.
As there are no frictional resistances when the seal is vented as in systems with brush seals, motorization is only recommended from approx. 600 kg. The Air-Lux integral drive is invisibly integrated into the frame for all opening types and requires neither recesses nor recesses in the ceiling.
The very resistant Air-Lux basic construction can be upgraded with additional mechanical components and a special glass up to the tested resistance class RC3. All safety measures remain invisible and do not change the profile or the face width. Bulletproof glass or alarm glass up to a thickness of 60 mm can also be used. Electronic components for monitoring the closing position and locking the sliding sashes enable the control and monitoring of the sliding window via the building services (alarm system, house control system etc.) - even with mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
With the help of the patented sealing concept of Air-Lux, optimum values are achieved in all aspects of tightness. Be it rain tightness, wind tightness or sound insulation. This guarantees maximum living comfort in all weather conditions. Since the air seal has no signs of wear, 100% tightness is guaranteed even years later.
Operation and Function
The sliding windows are operated on the window frame via a button with an integrated LED. Opening and closing are done manually or fully automatically, gently and quietly - without any effort. Outside, access options such as key switches, numeric codes, fingerprints, or badges are possible. And in the event of a power failure, the elements can be pushed manually and lock automatically. On request, we can also take over the planning, preparation, and installation of sun protection systems, slit ventilation systems, and insect screens for optimum living comfort. With darkening systems on the inside of the room, privacy can be further increased.
The system can optionally be equipped with a swiveling floor flap or with a trailing sleeper carriage for disabled access. When using the sleeper carriage, there must be a free space opposite the opening direction where the sleeper carriage can be parked when closed.
Due to the arrangement of the sliding sash on the outside, an all-glass railing can be integrated directly into the system on the inside, so that the guardrail is not visible from the outside and hardly perceptible from the inside.
