The first glass element opens conveniently by means of a simple stainless steel control cable.
The slide-and-turn system from the German manufacturer and developer was chosen for several reasons, first and foremost for durability, which should always be a requirement in the luxury residential construction sector. Like all Solarlux products, the SL 25 bears the "Made in Germany" quality seal, is made of high-quality materials and its standard of excellence is externally tested.
