2021 / 07 / 08

„KAV was given an award in the aluminium door and window small project category”

This year, the Aluminium Window and Façade Association (ALUTA) awarded its prizes again. KAV’s work was again given an award in the small project category, with the only prestigious recognition by the Hungarian aluminium door and façade manufacturers.

For the undivided glass façade of a villa building under construction in Budapest, in the “small project+”, i.e. residential building category, KAV received an ALUTA Award. In the past 5 years, KAV projects have received recognition in this category every time. The unique solutions of the award-winning villa building were created by rethinking Reynaers HIFI systems.

Every year, ALUTA announces a public tender for the recognition of architectural works created by using aluminium-glass façades that are modern, creative, novel in technical-technological design, environmentally conscious and apply rational and certified structures, while being compliant with the professional requirements set out in the objectives of its activities. The association is a professional and advocacy organization, established to implement the common interests of its member companies. Only companies that consider quality of production and products to be an essential requirement in implementing their market strategy may be admitted as members and, in this sense, they are custodians of the ALUTA brand. The association provides community services to its members, using its technical and intellectual knowledge pool, and represents members in the Hungarian Standards Body. In accordance with its goals, it provides further training, quality development and assurance services to its members with the help of domestic professional associations. It considers the medium-term market development of its members as its main task in its programme and, in order to achieve this, it avails of the assistance of the finest experts, opportunities in the media, and last but not least, cooperation with decision-makers. Its new undertaking, THE ALUTA GLAZING GUIDELINES, have become one of the basic elements of the Hungarian flat glass processing and construction industry, providing assistance not only to investors but also to the construction and design branches.

Choose big aluminium windows and doors!
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.

Do we need large glass surfaces everywhere?
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.

Windows in the Design Process from an Architect’s Perspective
Windows in the Design Process from an Architect’s Perspective
The question of when to engage window experts in the design process often arises. In this context, architect and head of the Archista architectural firm, László Kenyeres, shares his experiences. He believes that in today's architectural design process, windows and doors are a critical aspect because they represent one of the most complex parts of a building. Therefore, even those not well-versed in the world of windows may require external assistance to confidently complete an execution plan.

Windows in the service of maximising the view
Frameless windows are favourite elements in houses built in modern and minimalistic styles, since, thanks to the nearly invisible frames, the external and internal spaces almost connect; in this way, nothing disturbs the view, and also natural light may flow into residential spaces through a greater surface.

The evolution of closing systems in Hungary
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.

Aluminium windows and doors and the gluing technique
Unique windows and doors, large glass surfaces and narrow frames would not have become part of our building culture without developments in gluing technology. We talked to Gábor Farkas, head of the industrial glue technology division at Sika Hungária Kft., about the special fixing and sealing processes and innovations that have emerged in this field over the past decade. The cooperation between KAV and Sika goes back many years. In the beginning, they only supplied sealing materials for glass-to-glass connections made on-site, but today they supply KAV's factory workers and installation team with special materials and tools, and also train our engineers.

A refined aesthetic for doors and windows
The popularity of the minimalist style in architecture is one of the reasons that aluminium doors and windows entered the family house sector. Applying the principle of “less is more” to architecture led architects and designers to use unique solutions and austere or transparent surfaces. In a minimalist home, simple shapes and forms help create an atmosphere of harmony, where space itself serves humanity.
