The Seocho Garak Tower East in the South Korean city of Seoul soars upwards like a wave of liquid metal. The facade of the 130 metre high building which was inaugu­rated in 2011 is domi­nated by dynamic lines and curving sur­faces. This pre­sented parti­cular challenges in terms of the design of the Par­allel-Pro­je­c­ting win­dows and their motor-driven drives – not least because the win­dows of the sky­scraper are made up of many par­allelograms of different shapes and sizes instead of uni­form out­lines. These challenges are met by our system tech­no­logy: our in-house experts deve­loped, among others, new Par­allel-Pro­je­c­ting fric­tion stays for the hard­ware of par­allelogram-shaped win­dows. These innova­tions ensure – toge­ther with concealed hard­ware and our concealed chain drives – an excep­tio­nally high technical stan­dard in harmony with the exclusive design by the Dutch architects Het Architecten Consort in Rot­terdam.

GU solu­tion: hard­ware for Par­allel-Pro­je­c­ting win­dows and their motor-driven drives. New par­allel stays were deve­loped in-house for the par­allelogram window forms of the Garak Tower
