Glass & Metal

The facades sector is witnessing interesting times with new sophisticated systems and innovative performance enhancements of older technology, creating a myriad of options to give flight to the architect’s imagination, according to Benjamin Piper, partner and design principal at architectural design firm Killa Design.

Reynaers Aluminium, a leading European aluminium systems provider, has recently achieved the Cradle-to-Cradle certificate (C2C) for a number of its advanced window, door and façade solutions, recognising its strong commitment to the circular economy.

Bruag from Switzerland combines function and aesthetics to offer sliding systems in more than 100 proposed designs for doors, windows and openings that can be mixed with elements such as glass, for both interiors and exteriors. Customers can also create a perforation pattern themselves should Bruag’s designs not be to their fancy.
