Goldbrecht Marketing Vitrocsa Products

February 24, 2012

California-based Goldbrecht European Window & Door Solutions recently started its 30th project in North America featuring the Vitrocsa system designed to create an almost invisible wall that can be opened and closed. The line, including sliding doors, guillotine windows and pivoting doors, is now being produced in the U.S.

“Eighteen years ago, Swiss engineers applied precision Swiss watch technology to create this exciting and unique system with ultra slim sightlines,” says James Tschortner, marketing and sales director for Goldbrecht USA.  “It is about time this system was finally made available in the U.S. and Canada. After all, the European inventors of the system were inspired by the Californian architecture of the ’40s.”

Since 1993, more than 25,000 Vitrocsa units have been installed in 20 countries. The line, featuring ¾-inch profiles, is the choice of many noted architects, including Tadao Ando, Sir Norman Foster, Richard Meier, Herzog & DeMeuron and 2011 Pritzker Prize winner Eduardo Souto de Moura, Goldbrecht officials report.

All moving components of the luxury product line are manufactured by a Swiss watch component manufacturer with the precision of 1/100 of a mm. Assembled in the U.S., the system has been tested in the U.S. to AAMA and WDMA standards, it is noted.
