Design and Certification
The Giemme System “all-glass” wall, is a patented, minimal visual impact system that fits any type of architecture.
There are no limits in a horizontal sense, since it is a modular and fully flexible system.
Even when the glazing is closed, from the inside the gaze can sweep uninterruptedly to the outside and vice versa, thanks to the fact, that there are no uprights between the individual sashes, but only a transparent polycarbonate gasket, which ensures air and weather tightness.
Testing of GIEMME SYSTEM products ensures compliance with current UNI EN 14351-1 standards: air permeability, water tightness, wind load resistance, impact resistance).
Handling and Peculiarities
When the glazing is open, the sudden onset of a summer storm is no longer a problem, as the operations of moving the sashes (opening and closing) can be carried out safely by one person, thanks to the practical and lightweight sliding system, without disturbing the occupants of the room.
The doors open in a side-packet fashion with a minimal footprint making the spaces extremely flexible.
The mullion-free corner allows you to see the “all-glass” corner when the glazing is closed and enjoy the corner, free of all obstructions, when the glazing is open. In addition, the special “curve-corner” system applied to mullion-less corners causes the sashes to succeed at angles of 90° or greater proving particularly useful in situations where you want to pack all the sashes on only one of the two sides (perhaps against a wall or behind an alcove).
Depending on the specific functional requirement, one of several floor guide profiles is recommended, which in some cases may not even be inserted.
All solutions are customized: depending on the need, classic entrance doors with lock, handle and door closers can also be included in the glazing; the aluminum finish can be chosen from an infinite range (anodized, painted, wood effect, etc.); and finally, for the glass, in addition to the classic clear, etched or extra-clear, it is also possible to have decorated or screen-printed glass.
To also take advantage of the window as an advertising space, applying a semitransparent film, perhaps with your own logo or some slogan, is ideal. The appearance of the room, can thus if necessary be renewed by simply replacing the film.
Cleaning the outside, of glazing installed on upper floors, is also no longer a problem thanks to the new patented system of releasable hinges, which allows the outside of the glazing to be cleaned while remaining inside the room without therefore having to install scaffolding.
REALIZATIONS AND USES
In private homes, it is an excellent system for terraces, verandas, balconies, porches, gazebos and conservatories. Ideal for hotels, restaurants, bars, pubs and nightclubs that want to take advantage of porches, terraces or other open spaces throughout the year and from stores and malls, to eliminate the barrier with the customer, between indoors and outdoors. Used as partitions, they make it possible to transform interior spaces of private homes, offices or public establishments into separate rooms in a matter of moments, providing privacy and sound insulation.
