Barrier-free threshold awarded the „Best of the Best” prize
The barrier-free threshold ECO PASS SKY axxent from SIEGENIA was awarded the prize „Red Dot: Best of the Best 2020“ for its pioneering design. „Only about 1 percent of more than 6,500 objects submitted by a total of 60 nations have received this award. It is the highest distinction in the ‚Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020‘ and is exclusively awarded for revolutionary solutions by the jury, consisting of international experts in diverse specialist fields. "We are therefore all the more delighted about the award", according to Christoph Scheuring, PORTAL Product Manager at SIEGENIA. „With the development of our threshold for lift-slide elements, we have pursued the objective of setting standards, both in design and in level passage - the latter under consideration of professional compression and drainage. The award ‚Red Dot: Best of the Best 2020‘ emphasises that this has succeeded.“
Unique design with perfect sill installation
ECO PASS SKY axxent enables barrier-free passage to the outside with a ground-level threshold completely without incline, combining this with unique design benefits, making large timber-aluminium elements eyecatchers. This begins with the optical adaptation of the threshold to the frame material, which provides a uniform elegant design. The design of the fixed sash is also optically appealing: the omission of the fixed sash profiles means that the proportion of glass and the room brightness are maximised to such an extent that the glass elegantly merges with the floor area. Protection against uninvited guests is provided by the certified burglar resistance of ECO PASS SKY axxent and PORTAL HS, the hardware from SIEGENIA for lift-slide elements: end users needn't dispense with a barrier-free passage, even in the RC2 version.
The outside appearance is also harmonious. The elegant design of the required threshold drainage grille continues seamlessly to the drainage gutter. The threshold and the outside area thus form a symbiotic relationship. ECO PASS SKY axxent also exhibits its strengths with regard to sill installation. Maximum compression is provided by the efficient design with sealing plates, sealing wedges and base profiles, supplemented by the drainage gutter, which is prescribed by regulations as a compensation measure.
From June in the Red Dot Design Museum
From the 22. June, you can see ECO PASS SKY axxent in the exhibition in the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen. Outstanding products, which have been winning Red Dot Design Awards from the jury of experts for years now, are presented in the museum on five floors and approximately 4,000 square metres.
