White mansion on the riverside of the Elbe

In April 2015, we first advised the architectural office Ehrensberger & Oertz, Hamburg, to install KORN air-lux in their project.

The special location directly between Elbe and Elbchaussee opposite to AIRBUS asks for best test results in wind-, driving rain and sound insulation. KORN air-lux units are offering 100 % of impermeability in any weather condition due to a patented inflatable sealing system. Moreover, you can realize huge sliding sashes with extreme glass weights of more than 900kg, motor driven and resistant to high winds.

The requirements to execute all elements in RC3 can be fulfilled by KORN air-lux, too.
In close consultation with the architects and the general contractor we have been realizing this exclusive project since end of October, 2016.
The work planning as well as the logistic concept require an extraordinary level of precision and experience.

End of 2017 you will be able to look at a new architectural highlight from the waterside.
