Vertically sliding or guillotine windows and doors can slide up or disappear into a ground cavity when opened. When used as a door the guillotine window creates an enormous opening without any movable panels in the way.
When designed into multiple height buildings the guillotine door makes an exciting and grand architectural statement. Most commonly used as a door the guillotine door with two or more sliding panels at up to 3 x 6m to create openings to walk through at the bottom and ventilation at the top opening. We are also able to use weights to counter balance the opening so that only one sliding panel is required to create an opening which is particularly useful with smaller height openings or shop fronts. We have installed many guillotine doors where the sliding panel has been recessed into the flooring. Our guillotine doors and windows can be fitted with motorization so that with the push of a button the panels glide easily open or closed.
The same technology used on Vitrocsa’s sliding doors & windows is used on our Guillotine system. The same minimal frames and high thermal qualities still apply. Air, Water and Wind are all rated extremely high and with the tracks and frames hidden within the walls, ceiling and flooring this system creates a beautiful frameless view when open or closed.
The Vitrocsa Guillotine is fitted with a secondary cable as a anti-fall safety feature.
