Living space is valuable, so it should be put to the best possible use. For the first time, Gealan’s Smoovio combines the space-saving convenience of sliding solutions with extraordinarily compact design. This is made possible through a synergy of newly developed hinge parts, innovative profile geometry and optimised seals.
Smoovio is an in-line sliding system for windows and doors that eliminates the rotating function of conventional opening elements – making optimum use of the space in front of windows or doors and bringing more light into residential or business premises. The fitting technology comes from the builders Roto.
The comfort advantage that comes with sliding windows was previously often paid for with a lower-quality seal. A refined closing mechanism in the new GEALAN sliding system means this is no longer an issue.
Sliding elements result in a great deal more living space, as these models require no pivot area for window and door leaves. This also means that the living space directly in front of the window can also be used. Sliding elements offer unbelievable potential to create valuable free space when planning layouts.
Intelligent components render their service invisibly. Special roller systems and extraordinary closing technology ensure smooth operation and excellent leak-tightness.
The completely roller-mounted construction of the elements makes it easy to move the wings. The wing is turned off when opening transversely to the frame profile, without raising the total weight of the wing element or swing out of the element level out. This makes operation easier, especially with heavy triple glazing. The locking is done with little effort.
In order to permanently achieve maximum performance in terms of water, air and sound tightness, the current sliding system of the Upper-Franconian system supplier is exclusively combined with “Patio Inowa” components from Roto. The plastic profile specialist describes the possibility of being able to individually place locking points with the fitting program as “a very important cooperation factor”. The technology provides a sustainable locking mechanism that guarantees circumferential sealing levels on all sides of the closed sash according to the principle of classic turn-tilt offerings.
Another advantage of the new sliding system is the low system depth in the sash and frame. It enables both an economical processing of the circumferentially welded frame over production lines as well as the use in the renovation sector. The hidden technology allows narrow profiles with a modern design.
For the fixed parts there are two alternatives: It can be chosen between a symmetrical view in the whole element or a consciously asymmetrical overall view, which offers more glass surface. In addition to the classic white profile design, numerous decorative foils in plain and metallic colors as well as wood structures are available for the color design.
