Hawa Frontslide: The fitting for sliding shutters with a multitude of design options

The Hawa Frontslide give architects and designers the ability to combine the external advantages of a building with impressive internal values. The sliding shutters bring the appearance of the facade to life with their cheerful basic character and wide range of movements, and can be implemented in materials which are optimally integrated in the architectural concept. In turn, the residents benefit from a high degree of flexibility with regard to shading, space advantages due to the omission of a pivoting area, and maximum operating convenience. Particularly since Hawa Frontslide is not only automatically operated, but can even be implemented with a connection to intelligent building control systems.

Smart living, intelligent shading – with sliding shutters

No other sliding shutter can do this: The 60 Matic version of Hawa Frontslide can be connected directly to the building automation using a revolutionary SMI interface. This makes it possible for the sliding shutters to be flexibly aligned to the position of the sun, which creates a light situation that is optimally adapted to the time of day at all times, provides protection from excessive heating and increases the general feeling of well-being in the building. The technical advantages of the sliding door fitting are obvious: 16 drives can be actuated with a single actuator, which saves space, maintenance and remote diagnosis are simplified by precise status and error messages, and the system can be integrated in the most common field bus systems without problems.

Hawa Frontslide with SMI

Open to unconventional forms of living

Hawa Frontslide doesn’t force anyone to live within the classic four walls. It also supports open window fronts, loggias and more. And always provides the privacy and protection from the sun which corresponds to the room, the light situation and the requirements of the residents in an optimum way. It provides a flush, attractive facade appearance when it is shut. It isn’t even bothered by demanding weather situations, since this extremely robust fitting impresses with outstanding UV and corrosion resistance and doesn’t even get thrown off track by strong winds. Nor does it worry about the ravages of time or continuous movement: It has been tested for 100,000 cycles.
