air-lux is a façade system with a unique sealing concept. Includes sky-lights, curtain wall, swing doors and large format descending windows. The maintenance-free air-lux window system with systems up to 18 m2 was developed by Krapf AG, a Swiss metal and façade engineering company and comprehensive provider of quality solutions. With air-lux, Krapf AG offers architects, façade planners and home-builders a versatile window façade system that is as architecturally and aesthetically appealing as it is structurally sound.
The descending window extends the air-lux product portfolio with an impressive new way of opening. The complete width of the descending window can be opened and the whole window unit is lowered into the ground. The advantage over sliding units: no fixed elements needed for the window to slide in front of.
Near the sea, the salt content in the air and water increases the demands on buildings and façade components. Air-Lux has developed a system that performs reliably even under maritime conditions.
