Glazing - the face of the modern facade

Glass buildings are increasingly coming out of his architects drawing pen and make unique Russian cities. To a large extent contribute to this innovative window technologies, which are becoming more and more every year.

Panoramic windows, windows with a minimum thickness of the profile, glass walls, sliding design - all the most popular features of modern facade.

On the other hand, the fashion for large-size glazing challenged the SEC market, because it must be not only aesthetic, but also functional, energy-efficient, friendly nature of the facades.

And here, as it turned out, in practice, it is not so simple. The first glazed office buildings were not quite ready "to eat", which gave rise to "unhealthy building syndrome".

Spending most of their time at work, employees began to experience discomfort rather than on the load, but on the unhealthy climate.

This fact has interested scientists who discovered a direct correlation between indoor climate and the state of people's health.

Due to the special configuration of the threshold and innovative accessories, such control becomes a process of massive doors completely comfortable and safe.

Sliding system also positively affect the interior design as flap, which is mounted parallel to the wall, in the open state does not take place in the room.

This means that practically all of the useful area can be used to the maximum. A glazed movable wall acts as a living carpet, erasing the boundary between nature and architecture.

Panoramic sliding doors VEKASLIDE recognized experts and users the best offer for individual and custom interiors in private housing construction.

It is important that an element of modern architecture always looks presentable, can be adapted to any design style, without losing its functionality.
