Modular facades, flush-fitted facade windows and skylights

Composite glazing is a unique building skin made of insulating glass and bonded profiles of glassfibre reinforced plastic (GRP). The latter possesses outstanding structural and thermal properties, making it ideally suited for bonding to glass. These elegant composite elements are used in construction as modular facades, flush-fitted facade windows or skylights.

Composite glazing is dedicated to the principles of contemporary design and energy efficiency. Large glass areas with the slimmest possible frames satisfy this requirement. If the glass to frame area ratio of a window is increased, the result is a simultaneous increase in incident light and solar gain. Moreover, heat losses are reduced.

All-glass facades

With composite glazing, all-glass facades can be designed with a discreet and harmonious look because it allows large elements to be used in combination with slender joints. This novel modular facade is designed in accordance with SSG principles (structural sealant glazing).

Flush-fitted fixed facade glazing

Used as fixed glazing, composite glazing stands out for two radical new features:
The element can be realised as a window that is both flush-fitting and frameless. Especially ambitious designers will even implement glazing solutions that project from the facade!

Skylights

A skylight for fitting into flat roofs is the latest addition to the composite-glazing family. Here, too, unostentatious design and excellent structural and thermal values are the outstanding characteristics. Sophisticated materials to meet the most exacting demands, tailor-made to customer requirements.
