Whereas the creators of Sky-Frame, the imaginative specialists from aspiring company R&G Metallbau, have been enjoying a considerable amount of success in Switzerland and its neighbouring countries, the little Swiss tiger is now ready to make a move. Sky-Frame is capturing new markets and is also making an international impression, as was evident at the company's most recent exhibition appearance in Great Britain. The Swiss window system was one of the attractions and the talk of the town in London.
Where indoors and outdoors used to be separated by a solid wall or wide mullions in the glass, now there is transparency, a seamless transition achieved with glass from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, either fixed or in the form of a sliding window.

This has given the Bauhaus ideal new future opportunities, and is an aesthetic eye-catcher for any observer.
