25 Years of Innovation | The Original Minimalist Window

Inspired by Californian mid-century modern architecture of the 40's and Pierre Koenig's famous Case Study House #22, also known as the Stahl House, the Vitrocsa Invisible Wall system was created. The same passion of the early Vitrocsa engineers still drives our research and engineering team today, to constantly develop new solutions while conserving the pioneering spirit in our search for maximum reliability and simplicity.

Patented 4x4 Track System

The patented 4x4 track system is a special swiveling roller device, which is mounted on a precision suspension system in the tracks. It ensures that the overweight, heavy sliding panels are always positioned perfectly 90 degrees to the floor, thereby eliminating almost all friction. This results in 50% easier sliding operation and very smooth sliding units.
