Large glazing areas are an “in demand trend” especially when designing modern office buildings, hotels and recently, family homes. A new emerging desire for homeowners to emulate their favourite hotel and create an minimalist light space in their day to day lives, has created a demand for Large glazing areas. An obvious advantage is the seamless connections they provide the heart of the home, the kitchen to the living room or garden. They provide a panoramic view, dissolve the boundary between exterior and interior and give the impression of unlimited space. The less visible the connection, the better the effect.
MB-SKYLINE SLIDING DOOR WITH INVISIBLE FRAME FEATURES NARROW PROFILES, GIVING ANY STRUCTURE AN ON-TREND, MINIMALIST LOOK.
The visible width of the door leaf connection is only 25 mm, in addition to this the entire structure looks uniformly glazed and has smooth dividing lines. Buildings fitted with MB-SKYLINE doors are buildings with a style all their own and an enhancement to any development. In addition, the system allows the use of up to 4 m-high doors, providing multiple design opportunities, including spectacular glazing areas. MB-SKYLINE sliding door can be opened manually or automatically and its drives and control units can be hidden in the frame profiles or mounted outside the structure.
TO BE FULLY EFFECTIVE, LARGE GLAZING AREAS MUST PROVIDE THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF THERMAL INSULATION.
This requires the right aluminium profiles, to achieve excellent performances. Aluminium windows and doors are produced using two warm profiles, and a thermal insert. Modern structures can easily feature products with excellent insulating performances. For example, MB-SKYLINE features 3-chambered profiles with thermal insulation UW from 0.85 W/(m2K). To prevent heat loss from homes, MB-SKYLINE-based large glazing areas use 52 to 60 mm-thick triple glazing units.
