Straight from our factory’s testing area, it’s our pleasure to introduce the new version of Glazetech’s shading system:“AL.ROLL” Vertical Application.
The idea derived when a significant hotel in center of Athens asked us for a solution to protect its main curved entrance and vitrine - façade as during to almost every political demonstration organized in city resulted in property’s destruction and lead with enormous economic losses and damages for the owner.
We experimented on our recent precious creation: “AL.ROLL”, the whaterproof shading system in a roll, where in vertical position and with new designed routes-drivers, we have created something durable in time and vandalism as now was focused on the customer’s protection. Durable double aluminum skin profiles and moreover, transparent parts with lexan protection material, can be available for more elegant results and also practical aspect. The new curved entrance and vitrine will be transformed into a real fortress.
The AL.ROLL system provides an efficient way to modern design, shading and now locking and protecting your place from vandalism seems to meet all requirements.
