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.

What kind of glazed tilt-and-turn balcony door, which can work with a height of up to up to 3000 mm without division, is on offer? 

The KAV Optivision® system, developed jointly by KAV and Alukönigstahl, combines concepts of design and functionality. The completely flat, glazed surface, viewed from the outside, enables large opening elements to be designed in a modern, minimalist style. And the tests prove that it meets the requirements for modern doors and windows to the maximum in terms of the properties of building physics. The Schüco FWS 60 CV system is a remarkable filigree-style concealed vent window solution. The point is that the sash is completely hidden behind the 60 mm wide curtain wall profile so that, when it is closed, the opening element does not differ from the fixed fields of the curtain wall. With an opening fitting, a huge sash height of up to 3176 mm can be achieved.

Is there a glass wall system at a more affordable price than the frameless PD sliding door system, with opening sashes that can be at level height (up to 3000 mm), motor-operated and installed with a ground-sill lowered to floor height? 

 Our deservedly popular Schüco ASS 70.HI system has been replaced in the last few years by the Schüco ASE 80.HI sliding door system, which surpasses its predecessor by far in all respects. With this, large sashes can be realised up to a sash height of 3500 mm and a sash weight of 600 kg. It can be selected with manual or motor operation. Thanks to the newly developed ground-sill solution, the ground-sill profile of the sliding door can be brought completely level with the exterior and interior floor cover plane, which is a great advance in both aesthetics and function. All this with a narrower sash profile, which allows for even greater transparency. In terms of design, it’s nearly only the imagination that sets limits: a 1, 2 or 3-rail design, and the development of positive and negative corner variations, as a catalogue element.

What is the system-level and permitted solution for fixing lamellar blinds to curtain walls? 

Schüco offers its own curtain wall brackets that can be used as system components for various elements – e.g. for fixing blinds, canopies and advertising surfaces. It is important to select the right bracket already in the design phase, because in some cases the type of bracket also affects the design of the curtain wall itself.

Can Schüco windows be operated with fully concealed motors and do their control work with building management systems available on the domestic market? 

Schüco’s proprietary Schüco TipTronic concealed motorised hardware is a highly innovative, yet well-proven hardware system. The window hardware remains completely hidden, with no hinges or handles visible on it, so it fits perfectly into a modern, clean-looking building. It can be used in almost any opening mode, be it a ventilation window or a heat and smoke extraction window. If necessary, it can be built as an independent system, it can even be integrated into today’s prevalent building management systems, so that every conceivable user need may be realised using it

The issue of shading is becoming increasingly important
The changing economic environment and rising energy prices are also impacting the construction industry. But how might the market for premium segment windows change? According to KAV's CEO, Károly Lovász, the focus will shift towards the issue of shading, and it is crucial for builders to select companies with a stable background and a qualified workforce.

Production of custom doors and windows at the KAV plant
Most domestic companies selling aluminium doors and windows do not have their own production capacity. However, in KAV's imposing manufacturing plant, they are able to resolve even seemingly impossible profile connections. This is where further thought-out versions of Schüco or Reynaers profile elements and completely unique door and window solutions are manufactured, designed and developed by KAV engineers. We talked to Albert Herbut, the head of KAV's Kisbér plant, about the production processes and the operation of the plant.

Ethical operations raise even SMEs to the top
Ethical operations raise even SMEs to the top
Following the large enterprise sector, operating ethically is becoming increasingly important for small and medium-sized enterprises, too. These companies not only take into account the interests of their clients and suppliers but also those of their environment and employees. They set an example by their activity and attitude and strengthen trust. This attitude may constitute a basis for long-term operation and economic stability, and what is more, employees of the Y and Z generations are more eager to opt for an ethically operating workplace.

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 relationship between aluminium doors and windows and the façade
In parallel with the advent of the latest aluminium door and window solutions, including filigree case systems and large glass surfaces, façades have also been transformed in the family home market. In addition to functionality, design also plays a key role in more and more buildings. However, architects rarely involve professionals in the process of designing doors, windows and façades. According to Krisztián Vatai, executive director of Facade Design & Building, who is engaged in the design, construction and production of façades, a change of attitude and education is needed to change this.

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.

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.
