Constructed entirely in first grade 6/10 and 9/10 galvanized plate.
The panels do not have the common vertical folds, but horizontal, more suitable to make the entire structure more solid and robust without annoying swelling of the internal chamber of the counterframe.
The electrowelded mesh is not welded, nor crimped to the panel, with a small tolerance for movement. This tolerance (in case of natural setting of the masonry wall) keeps the central structure from suffering any damage. In fact, the only element in direct contact with the cement mortar is the electrowelded mesh.
The electrowelded mesh (present only in the plaster version) is created with longitudinal and transverse wires 2 mm in diameter. The mesh sheet has no edge closing wires: the ends are formed by “free points” that can move and better align with key points and contact areas on the wall.
The track is made from aluminium extrudate and is completely extractable from the upper headboard. Therefore, unscrewing the butterfly screws from the inside, any necessary modifications can be made without ruining the masonry walls.
It is widely known that interior sliding retractable doors offer considerable advantages over traditional swinging doors: apart from the aesthetic advantages, they make it possible to create multiple environment arrangements, optimizing spaces and ensuring a better use of the paths within a building. The line of Eurocassonetto counterframes for exterior sliding systems transfers these features and advantages to exterior casings as well, while also addressing important issues such as the thermal and acoustic insulation needed to shield buildings from external agents. The following pages are not intended as an exhaustive analysis of a new topic, continually being developed and updated and including other aspects and standards relative to the energy performance of casings and thus also buildings. Instead, it serves as a brief introduction and invitation to discover more about this structural feature, a notion of living and a new concept of the home that is considered here from 5 perspectives.
