Sliding and folding panels are a reflection of contemporary architecture and an important element in aesthetic design of buildings. They offer many possibilities, from using different colors and materials, to obscuring or accentuating the line between glass and facade.
The panels offer effective protection against overheating of the building, as they prevent the transfer of the sun’s heat into the interior. The transparency of the panels is subject to the use of different fillers. They are resistant to wind loads and offer a high level of protection against burglary. Therefore, they are often used on buildings where protection against intrusion is particularly important.
