    About Aestech

    Aesthetic glazing technologies. We are rethinking the double glass facade and change the role of the glass from a filling element of the construction to an independent construction system. With Aestech frameless glass systems you have no limits in architect solutions.

    Over the past 15 years, our engineers have developed technologies that allow you to implement the most daring glass-based architectural ideas. Over 100 implemented projects.

    Our glazing technology overcomes the complete dependence on aluminum in construction. When removing metal from a facade or terrace, you:

    • Help to improve the ecological situation since aluminum production is very energy-intensive and creates emissions of harmful gases and dust
    • Save on the purchase, processing, and installation of profiles
    • Save on utility bills because the facade without metal is much more energy efficient
    • Speed up the installation of a facade
