Design and Functionality
This patented, modular system is based on 1500 mm long vertical corner posts and horizontal traverses, 116 mm high and 37 mm deep. The system maximizes the inner surface of the shaft so that the greatest possible cabin fits in. The structure is attached to the building with concrete dowels. Each section is screwed together, which means no weld-spots, no loss of tolerance, no inaccuracy. This also guarantees a faster installation of the shaft as well as a high quality production of the interfaces.
The Quality shaft differs from other systems in the attachment of the glass panels. These are set to horizontal rails that are invisibly bolted to the traverse and laterally overlapping. Thus, there is no distance between glass and glass and so ensures that the shaft is tight and completely weatherproof especially against rain.
All our shafts are made of sheet steel in different thicknesses or galvanized steel plate (external shafts). Colours can be selected between 183 colors of the RAL card. Columns, trusses, sheet metal components or sandwich panels will be powder-coated in the selected color.
Special colors like Pantone or DS, or special versions such as metalized colors and Oxyron, are available on request.
If you wish, our structures can also be covered in various stainless steel variants. The pictures will give you a brief overview of the most common colors, structures and textures. In order to find the desired style for your project, we can provide you with countless patterns.
When working with glass, we exclusively use laminated safety glass (VSG), which owes its safety properties to a tear-resistant and ductile film between the glass panes.
You can choose this glass in the various glass-characters: transparent, white, milk, in many different colors, with various ornaments, mirrored and with a variety of surfaces from smooth to rough.
Glass is a very special material with many features which allow very beautiful and useful effects.
Energy savings with modern insulating glass! CLIMALIT GLASS are double glazed glass panels which provide greater thermal comfort, what makes you save energy and money. The level of insulation is up to 3 times higher than that of a simple double glazing. Lose less heat in the winter and in the summer it helps to maintain a comfortable temperature in the room. Insulation glass is ideal for outdoor shafts in Minergie buildings or projects in accordance with EnEV standard. With the Climalit 4 + 4/16 (argon) / 3 + 3 glasses, an U-value = 1.0 W / m2K is guaranteed.
Custom-made products such as laminated glass with UV protection or special self-cleaning glass for exterior shafts are available on request. There´s a wide range of effects, such as finishing with laminated glass technology. With this method, films, photos and any materials are affixed between two glasses – the result is a unique masterpiece! Let your imagination run wild.
The latest digital printing techniques for refining the shafts and cabins.
The know-how of our partner with respect to the process technology and the technology of the pressure, is the
guarantee of the highest quality. All materials and surfaces are printable:
digital printing the images seem real and reflect the light.
Furthermore, Illuminating printed glass or
textiles from behind allows to play with the light.
We have developed special promotional material for public
buildings or hotels. Put digital screens invisible behind glass cabins and behind the shaft walls that are made of
glass and attract the attention of your customers to your products. The media can easily be uploaded and edited via
USB or Internet.
The sky is the limit. The effect is hard to put into words.
