Glass solutions that set buildings, projects and homes apart from the rest.


When using glass products innovatively, the ambience of a room can be transformed just by letting natural light take its course. In addition, incorporating sophisticated glass features in a project’s design can create a feeling of transparency and boldness.

Products available in the Aluglass Glassflex range
The GF-Serene is a demountable acoustic system designed to easily create private subdivisions in open-plan offices. This range integrates directly with the Aluglass Bautech Varikust VK62 acoustic doors.
Two options are available:
• GF Serene 35 – 35dB.
• GF Serene 40 – 40dB.
GF 120
Another acoustic Glassflex product, the GF 120 consists of individual elements that run on an overhead track system. This allows flexibility to open up the system when the extra space is required or to create a private acoustic, but transparent area within an office, hotel or home. The GF 120 system is also available as single- and double-door configurations.
GF 40
The GF 40 system is mainly used for domestic applications. With its zigzag configuration that runs between a floor and ceiling track, one can stack it to one side and extend a living area to the outside. Internal and external systems are available.
GF 52
The GF 52 doors and partition system consists of individual elements that can be stacked to one side or into a niche. The system runs only on an overhead track. This product can be used to create more flexible angles in domestic and commercial projects, and is often applied to create sub-divisions for canteens and enclosing patios.
