Sky-Frame Classic

The name “Classic” not only evokes the timeless appeal of the rectilinear window assembly, but also highlights its historical significance as the first ever Sky-Frame system. Our horizontal sliding window systems comprise insulating glass units with perimeter aluminium or glass-fibre-reinforced plastic (GRP) sections. Mounted in aluminium frames that are fitted flush with floor and ceiling, the sliding units offer minimum rolling resistance when operated. The system drainage for the flush assembly is via recessed channel or is installed below the raised outdoor floor covering.

The Sky-Frame Classic sliding windows are the most popular models thanks to their flexibility. Sky-Frame Classic offers a huge range of options for combining technology and features. The sliding windows can also be installed with a range of different opening options – side opening, centre opening (offset or on the same track), and the popular corner opening. Any number of sliding elements can be combined and installed either symmetrically or staggered.
