Inside or outside? Living with all-glass puts the "or" aside. Natural beauty is allowed into the room and vice versa. Boundaries blur. All-glass systems leave everything open. All-glass systems and lift-and-slide doors are available in frameless versions with small or standard frames. They are robustly built, hold fast, and also offer numerous structural advantages. You only need to choose whether you would like classic, timeless, or modern.
Josko is constantly innovating its products. The pilaster strips were recently made slimmer with a visible width of 25 mm and depth of 67 mm, without compromising the structure. This is ensured by a stable steel pipe with an aluminium profile that can be powder-coated, or covered, or comes with a natural wood veneer. Everything else is thin Free room for individual desires: The various pilaster strips are flexible to suit every personal preference and can be installed later.
Please let our Josko partners advise you about the different coupling styles. You can count on a wonderful fixed component that even works around corners. The possibilities are endless, ranging from a classic coupling, expanding and static coupling, aluminium coupling, all the way to all-glass panel coupling (depending on the system).
Example of all-glass panel coupling with Platin Blue
With FixFrame the system frame is installed during structural work, with standard protective profiles protecting the frame during the construction phase. The glass is placed inside after completing the construction phase in order to limit damage from plaster or floor work. Expert Josko installation and service partners guarantee professional installation.
The first of its kind, an all-glass system with Platin Blue and Safir Blue: the fixed components are delivered already glazed and are ready to be installed. This not only saves installation time and avoids glass breakage, but it also allows for more creative leeway.
With FixFrame Blue Vision, components can be perfectly integrated (glass panels, Platin 82 windows, Platin 82 terrace doors, FixFrame lift-and-slide doors, front doors from the Nevos and Vitas series, solar protection, all the way to drainage). Depending on the product, Josko even offers very compact components.
The key difference between the Platin Blue and FixFrame is that it can be attached to both. This makes removal and installation very easy. The Platin 82 window, Platin Blue lift-and-slide door, Platin 82 terrace door, and the Nevos Alu front door each functions as a ready-made combinable component of Platin Blue. Solar protection only adds to this great offer.
The Safir Blue allows coupling of the Safir and Topas windows, Safir Blue lift-and-slide doors, and the Safir and Topas terrace doors, in addition to the perfect solar protection. Depending on the structural connections, the Safir Blue fixed component has a four-sided, 25 mm thin frame (best case) that is visible from the inside and outside. The Safir Blue fixed component is therefore significantly thinner than standard fixed window components and also does not have glass strips.
Don't make the mistake of only comparing price. The essential differences are found elsewhere: in security, technology, experience, and design. Some fixed glazing emphasize "hand-crafted systems". These systems have special-purchase parts and do not come from a single cast. This may result in technical complications and visual defects.
Never trust oral promises during a sales pitch - ask for test certificates and photos. Verify if the system frame is "warm", meaning that there are no resulting thermal bridges from the use of "cold" aluminium or steel profiles.
When you get a good look you will quickly see that frameless does not always mean frameless. Even if it is only a small aluminium track - the original FixFrame Blue Vision from Josko is truly frameless, inside and out, on all 4 sides
While the phrase "rule of thumb" may be enough for some, Josko doesn't leave anything to chance. FixFrame Blue Vision is structurally designed with its own agenda. Because Josko is aware of the great responsibility and requirements that apply to glass. Furthermore, FixFrame is officially examined according to EN standards by an independent testing institute, Holzforschung Austria. For stability despite extreme conditions. Glass often has to fulfil the same structural function as a thick wall. We do not have to spell out the challenges for you here.
An example: A glass wall (5 x 3.2 m) at an altitude of 8 m has to withstand extreme wind conditions. In figures, that is 150 kg per m² or 2,400 kg for 16 m².
Did you know that 32 litres per m² per minute flow over a standard glass wall (5 x 3.5 m) during rain? Given these figures, it's obvious that correct water drainage is very important. Josko conforms with ÖNORM 3691 and is developing its own solutions (eg FixFrame) that are both visually and functionally impressive
Moreover, there are also pathways between windows and walls as well as holes between terrace doors and the floor through which potentially destructive water can pass.
With modern Josko all-glass systems this is no problem! These windows can be replaced from the outside. The glass panels do not have to be transported through your home like other systems.
Under certain conditions, other systems even require the removal of exterior façades, interior floors, or plaster - in the worst cases the panels cannot be replaced or can only be replaced at high cost.
