The MB-Skyline Type R from ALUPROF SA wins a StolArchi 2022 award!

The innovative MB-Skyline Type R sliding door with a concealed frame by ALUPROF SA, has received another industry accolade, winning recognition in the Form category of the StolArchi 2022 competition.

The StolArchi competition, which is organised by the editorial team of the prestigious “Forum Branżowe” monthly, sees representatives of architectural practices selecting the best products in the window and door joinery sector. The accolades are awarded by practitioners who use window and door systems in their designs on a daily basis and are therefore ideally placed to assess their visual and functional qualities. Winning the main award in the Form category confirms both the top quality of the MB-Skyline Type R system and its innovativeness as a solution.

This is not the first StolArchi award to go to ALUPROF, a company supplying cutting-edge systems and innovative solutions for energy-efficient and passive building. Last year, it received a commendation in the Function-Innovation category, while the Internet users’ vote gave an award to its MB-79N system.

The MB-Skyline Type R. The way to achieve spectacular glass walls

The MB-Skyline Type R by ALUPROF is a panoramic sliding door with a concealed frame. The use of slender mullions measuring just twenty-five millimetres at the junction of the panels creates a structure which produces an effect of lightness and seamlessly connects the interior and the space around the building, while allowing daylight to stream inside. The maximum height of the structure is an astonishing four metres, meaning that impressive glass walls can be obtained. The panels may be massive, but no great effort is required to slide them open and closed. At the same time, the sliding seals make the mechanism almost soundless. Triple glazing of fifty-two to sixty millimetres is used, meaning that high thermal insulation parameters can be maintained.

Industry recognition for the MB-Skyline Type R

The StolArchi 2022 award is not the first that ALUPROF has received for the system. It won the TopBuilder 2022 title in the Product category and received an accolade at the 31st VIP Joinery Convention, where its exceptionally innovativeness was one of the aspects of the solution to be recognised.
