Vertical sliding windows

Sliding window systems - extremely space-saving

Vertical sliding windows are the perfect windows for pass-throughs in a variety of areas. In the street sales of fast-food restaurants and ice-cream parlours, in porter’s lodges and kiosks, in the media return of libraries or the dispensing of medicines in hospitals and pharmacies. Wherever it is necessary to open large or small areas of a façade. Since the opening sash does not protrude into the room, as with a side-hung window, nor does it require space at the side, as with a horizontal sliding window, this window is particularly suitable where space is tight.

Space-saving solutions for all types of buildings

Baier is up to all requirements. No difference whether it is a matter of equipping a bakery network with new, practical and sales-promoting sliding windows or also meeting the special desires of private house owners.

The entire experience of our metal construction department is used, for example, in the development of innovative sales sliding windows, regardless of size. At the same time, we pay balanced attention to individuality, ease of maintenance and safety. Despite all the professional and technical advantages Baier can offer, they must be good-looking, modern and up to date. Today, sales windows must be an inviting setting for customers.

In addition to remote-controlled drive technologies, our experts designed our patented safety device against crashing down, which even intervenes if a carrier rope breaks. Our reliable maintenance service guarantees the fact that this can never happen. This creates confidence for moving situations.

Technical details

Our sliding windows include a reversible flap for the counterweights. The counterweights are made of stainless steel tubes and poured with metal by a unique process. This ensures that there is no abrasion or compression of the weights.

The counterweights and the wings are connected with stainless steel ropes, which guarantees an exact and long-lasting operation. Guide rollers with plastic-coated ball bearings ensure quiet and low-wear operation.

Two fall protection devices built into the casement secure the casement if the steel cable is relieved or breaks. Find out more in the section on fall protection.

The fixed glazing is installed in a conventional glazing frame, i.e. the glass can be replaced at any time without having to dismantle the window.

According to the current technology, the electric drive is electronically controlled and has a proven power cut-off. As a result, a noisy and high-maintenance slipping clutch is no longer necessary. All parts can be replaced without great effort due to a clever modular system in case of damage.

Our sliding windows are manufactured according to the guidelines (u. EU directive) for power-operated doors, gates and windows.

Fall protection

Two fall protection devices built into the casement secure the casement. These are activated immediately if the steel rope is relieved or breaks. In public access areas, a fall protection system is mandatory and is installed as standard.

The system works on a counter-pull basis with a built-in spring and snap mechanism. Due to the mechanically efficient process, the function is guaranteed in any case and requires little maintenance—no electronics to fail.

The safety catch is located on the left and right sides of the sash and is connected to the drive cable. In case of a break, the corresponding hook immediately locks into the holes provided for this purpose and is fixed in place. To prevent such a situation from occurring in the first place, our customer service ensures long-lasting maintenance and service as well as durable stainless steel cables.

Further application possibilities

Swimming pool window

Vertical sliding windows are particularly suitable as a swim-through opening or swimming pool sluice. More aesthetically pleasing than, for example, a PVC curtain, or as a complement to it, lifting windows can be used to create a separation between the indoor and outdoor areas in a swimming pool.

Media return system

More and more libraries are offering their customers round-the-clock return service. Special media return boxes are available to readers, or the media can be “thrown in” via a façade window.

Our sliding window systems – whether manual or electric – can be installed directly in the façade and reliably and securely close the interior return area. Customised and made to measure, our sliding windows are a perfect component in the return process of modern libraries.

Hardys Kiosk, Lake St. Leon

The task of replacing the sliding windows at the snack bar at the campsite sounded insoluble: develop larger sliding windows for existing opening. But Baier wouldn't be Baier if there wasn't a solution. It lies in the detail - in the connection detail.
