EBE 85 AS
Excellent performance of EBE 85 AS in the version of sliding doors, also of large dimensions, with sill flush-mounted with the flooring.
EBE 85 has evolved with the AS system, which creates large, sliding glass curtain walls in which the sashes of great dimensions and weight can alternate with the fixed glass panels: functionality and aesthetic elegance combine in this casing which becomes an avant-garde technical element as well as a sophisticated component making up part of the façade and the interior furnishings. In fact, this versatile and flexible system maintains the excellent high-performing characteristics of the EBE 85 system and lends itself to the interpreting and creation of the most innovative projects in contemporary architecture. The profile combines thermal insulation and high values in permeability to air, in water-tightness, in resistance to wind load and in sound insulation. EBE 85 AS can have exposed sections of just 69 mm, continuous for the whole perimeter of the casing, and can be motorpowered for up to three sliding components. The performance of the EBE thermal break system has been tested by the best European certifying laboratories in compliance with the current specific standard EN 14351-1 regulations.

The re-organising of an important street block directly overlooking Royal Park with a view of Kensington Palace led to the construction of new buildings and thus a new look to this area of town, to realize 97 spacious luxury apartments. In an excellent position in London, these apartments are equipped with the most sophisticated up-to-date features, including private
25-metre swimming-pool, fitness centre and spa, live-in concierge 24/7. An important façade has been designed for the main elevation of the terrace overlooking the park: starting from the imposing base in Portland stone, thin, horizontal lines alternate with large glazing panels protected by deep terraces that are supported by refined and sturdy balustrades in bronze.
The glazing panels slide and are oversize in dimensions: for the whole length of the terraces the height exceeds 3.80 metres. They are not rectilinear but are instead characterised by misalignments and rotations without losing the effect of continuity and transparency of the visual perspective. With Secco Lab Secco Sistemi has studied, tested and produced an ad hoc profile that is
certified, as required by the project, with the excellent technical specifications of sound insulation, water-tightness and windproofing. EBE 85 AS in burnished brass has been designed to meet all these criteria: innovation, quality and performing efficiency, in line with the high prestige of the apartments of this building in the centre of London.
