Below is a sample of some of the past and present Collaborative Product Design and Collaborative Product Developments that we have worked on

  • Development of our frameless glass system to a fully certified façade system, including spandrel panels, with no mullions or transoms. The project also looks to combine a series panels with  pivoting and drive in/drive out mechanisms to produce a fully operable façade.
  • Design and choreography of a bank of 12 centrally pivoted panels 5300mm high by 2300mm wide to open and close at the touch of a button.
  • Design of an all glass balcony system with concealed fixings and structural connections.
  • Design of a sliding glass façade system to slide beneath ground to basement level on a residential property, allowing total freedom between living space and patio area.
  • Design of a series of internal walls which doubled as bookcases, separating one room from another. The bookcases were automated to enable them to slide and stack in a corner of the property, thus enabling an open-plan arrangement.
  • Design of an all glass canopy with concealed fixings and structural connections.
  • Design of a sliding glass roof utilising jumbo sheets of glass.
  • Design of aluminium filtered ventilation cylinders on large fixed glass windows for university teaching laboratories.
  • Design of stainless steel cover plates, air supply grilles and drainage channels for a variety of projects.
