SummaryThis system demonstrates another building integration option – spandrel elements in vertical and inclined orientations. It complements the “eye- catcher” function of the “Magistrale” system. The design of modules for the south facade comprises the innovative »point XS« bracket. This bracket holds a glass pane through an anchor in a tapped blind hole at the rear side. This means that the module surface is totally smooth.
