Aesthetics

Sky-Frame offers aesthetic solutions for the most discerning design and architectural wishes. With ceiling-high window panels, as well as organically curved and inclined glass units, Sky-Frame is the key to individual spatial concepts and extraordinary architecture. True to the Bauhaus vision of “free-flowing space”, the sliding windows open up the living area with a flush transition so that inside and outside merge seamlessly into one another. Thanks to the timeless frameless window design, the view is elevated to a fascinating design element.

Comfort

Sky-Frame offers the matching features for relaxed living: The Sun shading solution offers protection when the sun’s rays are intense. The Fly insect screen allows residents to enjoy warm summer weather and mild evenings without being plagued by insects. Thanks to the automatic drive, the large window panels can be moved almost noiselessly and, if desired, using a remote control. The heat insulation and soundproofing requirements determine the right Sky-Frame technology: 1, 2 or 3. Sky-Frame sliding windows also fulfil the wish for safety: they are made from safety glass and can also be fitted with alarm sensors

Technology

Sky-Frame underpins its pioneering technological role by completely concealing the complex technology and making it wonderfully easy to use. Life always means change and further development – that is why Sky-Frame continuously drives forward the development of new product innovations. Its pursuit to progress and sustainability is firmly anchored in the corporate vision. This is reflected in numerous innovation awards the company has received up to now. The Sky-Frame technology is 100% Swiss-made and stands for precise engineering and the pursuit of the best-possible product.
