How to turn doors and windows into actual pieces of furniture
Erco fixtures claim their place as a point of reference in the world of architecture and contract furniture
Ecoclima Custom by Erco is especially conceived for brightly lit environments boasting sweeping views of the landscape
To give architectural concepts tangible form means to nurture in your own mind a perfect response planned down to the last detail. When it comes to new building projects and renovations, the first thing is to choose the best materials and supplies to let architecture unleash its maximum expressive force and habitability. To this end, Erco – the Como-based historical brand specialising in window and door systems – is widely acknowledged for the use of high-end materials and 100% Made in Italy manufacturing processes, resulting in challenging fixtures that openly target the most demanding clients and daring projects out there.
Erco’s latest solutions include three new collections aimed to both residential and contract projects. A work by Giuseppe Bavuso, Shade shakes up the world of window fixtures by shaping a proper design must-have. Also available with sliding glass doors and entrance doors, such innovative system lies in-between advanced technology and essential aesthetics. Even the internal rabbet offers a number of customisation opportunities with coating in wood finishes, corian, glass, lacquer and porcelain stoneware, ensuring a perfect integration with the surroundings. A unique feature, available for windows and patio doors, is the black-out system placed inside the glass wing, operated by remote control, with the possibility of solar power through integrated photovoltaic cells.
Designed to meet the requirements of current and future energy regulations, the Ecoclima line is ideal for domestic/contract settings flooded with natural light and featuring panoramic views of the immediate surroundings, whether urban or natural. A selection of large-sized French windows, sliding door windows, and horizontal pivoting windows, Ecoline is conceived to enhance the beauty of any outdoor area. Glasses come in three different options – transparent, reflecting light, reflecting grey –, and comprise the warm edge spacer which provides excellent thermal insulation and reduced risk of condensation thanks to its low conductivity.
Lastly, Minimal offers modern and innovative design through the use of the structural glass: an all-glass view, the collection combines slim optics with excellent thermal insulation. Erco’s full range also comprise steel reinforcement on the entire perimeter frame, standard concealed hardware with safety devices at all closure points and door/drop-leaf for proper ventilation of the environments.
