Aluminium doors and windows with custom solutions

The founding of KAV Hungária was also triggered by an innovative idea: why not introduce aluminium doors and windows to the family home market? Since then, our own developments, individual solutions, needs assessment and construction work organisation have become the defining elements of the company. Károly Lovász, the managing director of KAV, Gábor Csóti, the founder of the Gamechangers community and Kálmán Szabó, the host of the podcast by the Association for Excellence Public Benefit Association, spoke about innovation, the underlying managerial thinking and organisational structure.

 

KAV aims to be one of the leading manufacturers of innovative doors and windows in Europe. Our unique approach, based on the fact that there can be a solution for every customer need, as well as our own ongoing developments, can in many ways change the way we have been thinking about windows and doors so far. From this conversation, we can find out what mission or leadership creed drives our company, how our organisational culture is built and what factors affect the success of KAV.

 

Károly Lovász highlighted in the interview that there are two things you should never forget as an innovative company manager: you have to stick to the truth of your vision and be persistent. An innovation-based company structure can never rest, otherwise it will be caught up with and copied. The task of the leader is therefore to continuously spin new ideas and directions by giving examples. This kind of attitude is also important for colleagues, as it encourages them to follow, act and think.

 

However, staff turnover should not be feared; if it goes in the right direction then it will bring results. According to Károly Lovász, the reflexes of the Hungarian workforce are currently inappropriate; they often go in the wrong direction, so it is worth paying attention to international examples. Correcting mistakes is also a social interest, not just an economic one. Thus, in addition to KAV’s thinking and vision, its approach to work organisation and its work ethic also differ from what is usual in Hungary. However, you have to dare to be unique and to take this on because, when coupled with perseverance, serious results can be achieved with this perception.

 

One of the cornerstones of our company, known in Hungary in the sector for its unique approach and solution, is that the owner does not define his company as a window manufacturer, but as a service provider. Therefore, personal contact with partners and customers is essential, and social responsibility also plays a key role in KAV’s corporate culture.

A timeless house, free from trends and fast fashion
The property was built in the vicinity of water and nature, with full transparency, clarity and harmony as its main features. The house, with its unique shapes, could be completed at a very high standard of quality without making compromises. We spoke about this process with György Pintér, the owner of the house.

With innovation, there is a solution to every issue
The changing needs of customers and architects require continuous innovation in the field of aluminium door and window systems, too. One of the basic ideas of KAV's operation is that we believe that there is a solution to every issue. Of course, we also work in this spirit during our developments. The KAV Optivision system was created with the professional support of Alukönigstahl. Together with the company's sales representative, Gábor Kiss, we are looking for answers to those frequently asked questions that can be solved using existing products.

Why is it worth choosing an aluminium front door?
When building or renovating a house, developers and architects may be wondering when it is worth deciding on an aluminium front door. In addition to durability, the main argument may be that aluminium can deliver dimensions and solutions that neither wood nor plastics allow.

Do we need large glass surfaces everywhere?
Our colleagues are increasingly encountering residential building plans in which large glass surfaces dominate. These concepts are understandable not only from a design perspective but also because of transparency, connection with the environment, and the continuous influx of light. However, in many cases, they cannot be realized, or they require significantly higher investments and more complex alterations to the plans. In our new series, we explore the topic of the dimensions of glass surfaces with Mr. Károly Lovász, the CEO of KAV, and Mr. Csaba Mravik, the Chief Development Engineer.

Using aluminium closing structures might be cheaper and more appropriate
In connection with aluminium closing systems, durability, sleek design and a wide range of application opportunities pop into the mind of most people. Still, due to financial constraints many people do not consider this option when it comes to family home design. We spoke with Károly Lovász, managing Director of KAV Hungária, about the when using aluminium closing systems might pay off.

Development by KAV of aluminium doors and windows with an all-glass look
Optivison© is unique in Hungary. (KAV is the only player in the small and medium-sized business sector to have developed aluminium doors and windows with an all-glass look for family homes.) Apart from KAV, no one among small and medium-sized enterprises has developed all-glass look aluminium fenestration for family houses. The system was designed to respond to the needs of our customers: we made the frame flush with the glass by rethinking the structure of tilt and turn windows and balcony doors. Our solution creates a ‘glass wing’ effect, making Optivison© systems the trend-setting doors and windows for modern family homes.

Choose big aluminium windows and doors!
The use of aluminium doors and windows in family homes allows increasingly large glass surfaces to appear in residential buildings. Because we spend a large part of our time indoors, high-transparency aluminium windows and sliding doors help to create an almost direct connection with the environment. We discussed with Károly Lovász, the managing director of KAV Hungária, why it is worth choosing large doors and windows.

Frameless sliding door structures with an architect’s eye
Each project poses a different challenge to architects and to door and window professionals as well. One of our reference concepts is based on the unlimited view created by the wing-opening roof and the space stretched by the floor. Filigree division solutions, as well as frameless sliding mechanisms, were the main solution to achieve maximum transparency. We talked to the architect Orsolya Glavanovics about the issues raised by the aluminium door and window solutions implemented during the design and construction, who the Myd-II Interior Design Stúdióval planned it jointly, house operating on this for the special fenestration solutions.

A medieval world built on stilts in the shadow of glass towers
The ALUTA, as the only domestic professional association of aluminum facade builders and window manufacturers in Hungary, organizes annual domestic and international study trips for its members. This year, our foreign trip took us to the Netherlands, a country with nearly 18 million inhabitants. Thanks to excellent organization, we were able to visit a significant number of unique buildings during our journey. Our team focused on exploring the cities of Amsterdam and Rotterdam, where a unique blend of European and colonial history, art history, and engineering culture unfolded before our eyes.

We build for the future rather than for today
Clear shapes, large glass surfaces, spacious interior spaces and creative use of materials – these are the main features of the most predominant architectural style of our era, minimalistic design, in which interest is outstanding in Hungary. However, the number of really well designed and built minimalistic family homes is relatively low. The property our engineers consider as one of the best designed ones our company has met in recent years was built in Budapest. During the project we paid increased attention to the design of large, liberally designed glass surfaces, essential for creating open spaces. We had a conversation with the developer of the house about what was needed to create this property.

The Role of Windows in the Design Process, an Architect’s Perspective
Kenyeres László, a leading architect at the Archista architectural firm, believes that villa buildings can be considered small form factor public buildings. This is why he considers it crucial to consult with window and door specialists multiple times during the design process. This approach helps avoid situations where window and door companies have to "re-design" certain parts of the building during the construction phase.

Development by KAV of customised shades
The hot and dry summers experienced over the last few years due to climate change have made suitable shading solutions ever more important. However, the standard systems available on the market do not meet individual customer needs either in terms of movement mechanisms or their form. That is why KAV’s engineers are offering customised aluminium shades that reflect contemporary trends in building. Károly Lovász, Managing Director of KAV, provides an insight into these special solutions.

The evolution of closing systems in Hungary
If one spends many years in a specialised technical segment, sometimes answering questions from a professional interviewer will inadvertently recall the period from the beginning to the present. Studying the evolution of window and door products used in residential buildings is also instructive, because fashion always changes along with demand and financial opportunities. Everyone sees the past differently - we, Hungarians are special in this - but sales figures outweigh perceptions.

Custom windows and doors beyond the standards
Just as in many areas of the world, ‘unique’ and ‘self-expression’ are the strongest buzzwords; so change the needs of architects and developers. However, most door and window manufacturers are finding it difficult to go beyond the standard items, although this area also offers many innovations in the field of architecture when it comes to sincerely rethinking structures.

Facade structures for full transparency
Curtain walls connect several large glass surfaces into a single structure, many times in an invisible manner. Initially these elements were exclusively used in communal building technology but, with the penetration of the minimalistic style, it also appeared in the family home segment. Today it is the most dynamically developing branch of the closing structure market, in that these surfaces are suitable for individual solutions where only the imagination of the client and the designers can set the boundaries.
