ultra tall opening glass door

Full Height Windows

The pivot opening from IQ creates a beautifully simple window opening with minimal detailing, clean lines and smooth action movement.

Function of the pivot opening is smooth and effortless. As with all glass door solutions, bigger is better and the pivot opening can be detailed with extremely large glass sizes. With the use of oversized glass large glass surfaces can simply twist and rotate, creating tall or wide openings within the building façade.

The pivots can be expertly integrated within an elevation of slim sliding doors.

Pivot points can be positioned centrally or to the side of the opening for a side rotation axis.

Various safety components are available with hold opening and controlled closing mechanisms available as options.

Double Height Glass Doors

The aluminium profiles of the pivot range are the slimmest possible with a full thermal break within the frames. Surrounding sightlines of 23mm when fully finished offer a clean and minimal design, uncluttered by additional framing or componentry.

With aluminium framing any RAL colour is possible. The vertical profiles of the pivot act as the ‘handle’ which minimises unnecessary intrusions within the frame or glass face. Minimalist design and detailing is inherent.

The combination of pivot openings and sliding openings in the same elevation facilitate the replacement your traditional wall with lightweight glass structures that draw light into spaces, increasing the perceived volume of an internal environment.

Tall pivot doors elongate narrow walkways. With the use of the oversized glass technology these opening pivots can be installed at sizes over 7m. Double height glass doors offer an impressive sight.

Details for Pivot Openings

We have various solutions available for your slim glass pivot door opening. All offer an extremely minimal sightline with flush floor finishes and large glass apertures.

With a minimal aluminium frame that is fully thermally broken you can achieve high levels of insulation. The systems are available as double glazed with options for triple glazing to achieve even high levels of insulation.

All handles are fully integrated into the framing for the most minimal and highly detailed solution.All thresholds are flush with the internal and external floor finishes and drainage is integrated into the base frame for improved water resistance and water ingress protection.

The range is not simply a selection of products, but instead a full glazing solution, able to be customised and detailed to your specific project requirements. The most successful projects operate on an ethos of collaboration between us and the architect, striving to achieve the exacting requirements of even the most challenging of project.

Full technical CAD details are available on request. Simply get in touch with the team at IQ for further specification information.

The Tilt and Turn Window

From the same family comes the minimal tilt and turn window solution.

Operating on hidden and concealed stainless-steel mechanisms, the opening window offers a higher level of weather sealing than a traditional pivot opening.  

Tilt and turn windows can be opened in two positions: a tilting position, wherein the opening is performed on the upper part and swinging that consists of a side opening.

It allows for good acoustic and thermal insulation performance, while guaranteeing a good level of safety.

The minimal framing offers a sightline of just 48mm across the fixed frame and opening window vent, making it one of the most minimal tilt and turn window openings possible.  

Oversized window sizes are very possible, and each approached on a project by project basis. Get in touch with the team with your project requirements for investigation.

The minimal Pivot Door

One of the pivoting door options that we offer is the minimal Pivot Door. It is unique within our pivot offering due to its extensive testing and the fact that it is tested as a door, not a window.

The slim aluminium framed pivot door includes a unique weather sealing detail at the base. When the door is fully closed a magnetic weather-seal is activated which lifts into the opening door frame. This creates a robust water and weather seal to the base of the door whilst maintaining the flush threshold.

It is this weather sealing detail that allows the system to achieve its test results for air permeability, wind resistance and water resistance.

The pivoting door can be integrated into a glass wall OR within a wall of minimal sliding glass doors, offering a versatile option for glass facades.
