Protection from weather and noise, a clear view and flexible opening options - the SL 25 slide and turn system from Solarlux impressed the German Design Council. In addition to the sophisticated technology and high ease of use, the movable glazing is also convincing in application and design. It shields against noise and offers additional space that can be used almost all year round. Thanks to its great flexibility, the glass façade even retains its open balcony character. The frameless all-glass elements are easy to move, glide over corners and can be parked in a space-saving manner by turning. What remains is a narrow glass package and the 95 percent open balcony.
Like a diamond, the square cube illuminated the path to each of the product highlights for trade fair visitors. Four large openings, designed with bi-folding glass doors in wood and aluminium, cero and the new all-glass SL 23 sliding system, provided maximum transparency and created a unique effect. A white carpet to contrast the black trade fair floor made the product island stand out even more. The slightly slanted presentation of the exhibits ensured that products were visible from the aisle of the exhibition hall.
Thanks to the frameless all-glass design, the view is not restricted in the slightest. From the outside, too, the glazing acts as an architectural design element: the glass elements form a flat façade floor-to-ceiling or mounted on parapets. Another extra: the additional outer shell protects the balcony from weather and environmental influences and provides a heat buffer. The balcony glazing thus improves the energy balance of the building and meets the various requirements of architects and planners for multi-storey residential buildings.
Solarlux will present the "Iconic Award 2019." for balcony glazing with added value on 7 October 2019 in Munich: Innovative Architecture". The international architecture and design competition takes the disciplines into account in their interplay. It honours visionary architecture, innovative products and sustainable communication from all sectors of architecture, the construction and real estate sectors and the manufacturing industry. The focus is on the holistic, consistent staging of products. The SL 25 slide-and-turn system was also convincing as a constructive and stylistic solution for visually appealing balcony glazing.
