Why We Use Sky-Frame In Our Projects

Sep 8th, 2017

Sky-Frame is the world’s leading sliding window system. Their prominent position within the industry has been achieved through technical expertise and knowledge of architectural and spatial design. Sky-Frame supply products globally and have won numerous prestigious design and business awards for their frameless sliding windows.

The Sky-Frame philosophy centres around the concept that the frameless sliding windows and the flush transition between ‘indoors and outdoors’ produce exceptional architectural creations, together with an unbounded spatial experience.  Their design results in spectacular vistas and the company standby their mantra,

"A view not a window"   The Swiss company designs feature floor to ceiling and wall to wall glazing to create a seamless transition and free flowing spaces and the frameless filigree sliding windows mean it is hard to tell where the interior ends and the view begins. 

MOTORISED OPENINGS
The electric drive allows the Sky-Frame doors to operate at the press of a button. The sliding elements have a virtually noiseless operation and the motor drive is concealed within the ceiling. 

SLIM SIGHT LINES
Super slim sight lines of just 20mm combined with a frame work fitted flush with the floor and ceiling to create the perfect frameless door system. 

INTEGRATED DRAINAGE 
The stainless steel integrated drainage channel offers a very neat solution to removing surface water from the flush threshold. 

SINGLE, DOUBLE OR TRIPLE GLAZED
The double glazed assemblies meet high sound and thermal control requirements. The 54mm Triple glazed technology further enhances the thermal insulation to meet the most stringent standards.

FLUSH THRESHOLD
Completely concealed frame and track provides seamless transition from inside to outside.

Our most recent use of Sky-Frame is situated in a cottage renovation located in Alderley Edge which is also shortlisted at this year's International Design & Architecture Awards for Best Kitchen Design over £100,000.
