MINIMAL FRAME SYSTEM
The FUSION 2.0 product refers to an innovative and intelligent modular façade system for moving panels that can reach theoretically unlimited dimensions within its own production standards. Such system is entirely created from scratch in all its components, aiming to blend the best thermal, acoustic and air and water permeability performances. With superior aesthetics leading to the highest example of minimalist essence in architecture, still not foregoing of being the system in the market that best solves the accessibility problems for users with reduced mobility. It simplifies the practical solution from its installation to its maintenance.
Offering innovating answers that cross, in a very balanced fashion, the fields of architecture, engineering and design, searching for base-concepts employing intelligent technologies, superior performances and essentially minimalistic aesthetics, knowledgeable of the international markets’ most technical demands, AMIITO-Tech describes FUSION 2.0 system as the most balanced system in the market regarding the three most essential values on developing a product: Design, Function, and Maintenance.
Design shows itself in the FUSION 2.0 system as an uniform aesthetic solution, where the system’s fixed rim perfectly sets itself in the building and, in addition to remaining concealed in the finishing materials after installation, it only reveals itself through the level plates and subtle perimeter lines that allow moving of the panels in said fixed and concealed rim in the building.
Function, in the FUSION 2.0 system, is fully solid as it addresses issues ranging from integrating the tiniest element into the whole of the system and vice-versa, to issues that are intrinsically related to sustainable manufacturing, economic impact and overall technical performance. Finally, the main aspect is the user experience in all its possible aspects, from the temporary user who will use the building during its construction period, as well as the end user, who will use the building in its lifetime.
Lastly, Maintenance, taken in special consideration in FUSION 2.0, as the system allows simple maintenance that can be easily done even by the end user. It allows for easy replacement of system-complete components, the only visible ones in the system, at any point in the building’s lifetime, either during the construction phase – usually critical time given the intensive use and carelessness by the building team – as well as post-construction.
Among other advantages, the system has a unique feature in the market, given that the system’s fixed rim, the one in contact with the building, has perimeter cavities just below the trim caps. Thus, transforming into technical spaces that allow the use of rigorous mechanical fixings that offer the highest safety to users. This basic principle was inspired by the most elaborate curtain wall systems on the market equipping the tallest and most complex towers in the world. In these cavities, additional subsystems may be introduced which further improve the technical performance and user experience, namely:
