Tropical Glazing Solutions (TGS) is excited to introduce Sky-Frame to the Caribbean market. Combining Swiss design ingenuity and precision engineering, Sky-Frame leads the way in top quality frameless sliding door systems. Wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling panels of glass replace solid walls to create the cleanest, clearest and most unobstructed views imaginable.
The brand promise, “A view, not a window” says it all: to live with Sky-Frame sliding doors is to be fully immersed in one’s surroundings; to not only look at the view, but to experience it with all one’s senses.
Inspired by the free-flowing space concepts pioneered by the likes of Ludwig van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, these state of the art Swiss-made sliding doors raise transparent transitions to gleaming new heights and make the view the focal point of the architecture.
A perfect solution for the Caribbean, where ocean panoramas are the norm and outdoor living is the ideal, the innovative design creates a seamless transition between inside and out. Slim profile doors and buried jambs and headers make the sliding panes all but invisible when closed and, when open, tracks that lie flush with the floor, recessed drainage gutters and wall pockets that allow doors to retract completely out of sight to eliminate any division between interior and exterior.
The Classic, a striking rectilinear assembly fitted into aluminium frames, and available in single and double-glazed configurations offers exceptional soundproofing, thermal insulation and hurricane impact resistance.
Add-on features for a tropical climate include various inset screen options which retract and disappear from view when not required. For the ultimate convenience and security, Sky-Frames have integrated self-cleaning rollers to keep the tracks debris-free, optional automatic drives for soundless remote operation, and all can be fitted with motion and/or glass breakage sensors.
