Sky-Frame Features

Individuality

Sky-Frame delivers premium sliding window solutions for any living situation – whether for urban life in a city apartment or for carefree relaxation in a rural holiday home. As a Sky-Frame licensed manufacturer Bretts offer builders, developers and architects professional advice and support – from conception through to completion of tailored spatial concepts.

Aesthetic appeal

With ceiling-height window fronts, organic curves or sloping glass units, Sky-Frame lays the foundation for customized spatial concepts and outstanding architecture. Inspired by the Bauhaus vision of “free-flowing space”, the flush threshold sliding glass doors open up the home interior. Indoor and outdoor space merges to create a unified living environment. Wall pockets allow the sliding windows to be fully retracted out of sight. The eternal charm of the frameless window concept transforms the view into a spellbinding design feature.

Convenience

The Sky-Frame system includes a range of features for enhanced comfort. The Sun solar shading assembly offers protection against strong sunshine. The Fly insect screen allows the insect-free enjoyment of warm summer days and balmy evenings. Automatic drives permit soundless and, if required, remote-controlled operation of the window units. In line with their thermal and sound control requirements, customers can choose between the Sky-Frame 1, 2 and 3 technologies. Sky-Frame sliding glass windows are also designed for high security. Apart from incorporating safety glass, they can be additionally fitted with alarm sensors.

Technology

As a testament to Sky-Frame’s engineering prowess, the complex technology – though fully concealed – is exceedingly simple to operate. Yet, as in all areas of human endeavour, improvements and refinements are always possible and, for Sky-Frame, this is what drives the unceasing process of product innovation. The demand for progress and sustainable development is firmly enshrined in the corporate vision and reflected by the many innovation awards received by Sky-Frame to date. Sky-Frame technology is 100% Swiss and manufactureed by Bretts Windows and Doors at Geebung in Brisbane. It is synonymous with precision engineering and the quest for supreme product performance.

Options

FLY

Insect screen - When not in use, the frameless, pleated Fly insect screen fully retracts out of sight into the frame. Tear-resistant tension cords made from Vectran fibre and the integral system section guarantee maximum stability and weather resistance. Fly can cover openings up to 1 m wide.

DRIVE

The electric drive allows simple and virtually noiseless operation of the sliding elements at the press of a button. The drive is concealed in the ceiling section and allows the window fronts to move automatically.

GUARD

Thanks to the adhesive bond between insulating glass assembly and GRP sections, and the multipoint locking system, even the standard Sky-Frame model offers outstanding burglar resistance. Various additional components can be fitted to the sliding windows to meet special security requirements.

POCKET

With the Pocket solution from Sky-Frame, rooms can be completely opened up without any visible glass leaves. The sliding elements are recessed and hidden away from sight. Additional features such as Sky-Frame Drive (electrically driven opening and closing) are also available.

INLINE

The Sky-Frame system is supplemented by the filigree post, which has a minimal visible width of just 30 mm. Frameless fixed glass panels can therefore be combined with sliding doors over large areas, forming a flush, continuous glass membrane.

GUN

With special insulated security glass (2-IV with bulletproof glass), reinforced frames and vertical profiles and defined building joints, Sky-Frame 3 Gun ensures optimal protection from gunfire.The Swiss Federal Office for Defence Procurement armasuisse has rated Sky-Frame 3 Gun as FB4, NS (.44 Magnum, no spall).

SUN

The Sun venetian blind system with its flat, 80 mm wide aluminium slats offers the perfect solar shading solution for the filigree Sky-Frame sliding windows. Plastic-sheathed guide cords carry slats up to 3 m long to a maximum height of 4 m. The Sun-Box recessed into the floor and the winding mechanism in the blind box facilitate swift dismantling of the guide cords to create an unobstructed opening and their subsequent re-installation.

COLOUR

Create your own Sky-Frame sliding windows: choose the profile colour and we will bring your vision to life. In addition to the anodized colours available, you can choose any colour from a range of palettes (RAL, IGP, DB) for the powder coating.

Note: Options not available on all Sky-Frame systems your Bretts Sky-Frame representatve will be able to advise on how the options work with different configurations

Sky Frame Classic

Lake Monger, Australia, Archtiecture: Palassis Architects

The name “Classic” not only evokes the timeless appeal of the rectilinear window assembly, but also highlights its historical significance as the first ever Sky-Frame system. The sliding windows comprise insulating glass units with perimeter aluminium or glass-fibre-reinforced plastic (GRP) sections. Mounted in aluminium frames that are fitted flush with floor and ceiling, the sliding units offer minimum rolling resistance when operated. The system drainage for the flush assembly is via recessed channel or is installed below the raised outdoor floor covering.

Sky-Frame Plain

What sets Sky-Frame Plain apart is the hidden, seamless transition between the inside and the outside that is completely flush-fitted with the floor: the sliding window glides over an opening in the floor with a width of just 10 mm. The space between these tracks is covered by the same flooring as the interior of the room, which reinforces the feeling of a free-flowing transition between indoors and outdoors. Sky-Frame Plain is perfect for use in warmer regions.

The bearing assembly is able to accommodate all vertical and horizontal forces, thereby achieving superior running performance. Regardless of inclination, the system drainage meets all driving rain resistance requirements.

With just a gentle push on the comfortable handle on the long side of the frame the door delicately glides open. The electromechanical multipoint locking system guarantees safety and security. Pivot comes with either double or triple glazing options.

Plain

Sky-Frame Plain

What makes the Sky-Frame Plain so special is the hidden, seamless transition between the inside and the outside that is completely flush with the floor. The sliding window glides over an opening in the floor with a width of just 10 mm. The space between the narrow tracks is covered with the same flooring material as the interior of the room, which enhances a smooth transition between indoors and outdoors. Once the sliding doors are open, this seamless transition creates a visually and tactilely pleasing effect – especially for those who love to go barefoot, both young and old..
