iku®windows: Highlight at Conference "High Rise Building" in Amman

Up one level

Amman/Jordanien, June 08. 4th architectural conference - First High-rise Building Conference & Exhibition in Amman


The conference held mid of June for three days, aimed for achieving a total and comprehensive understanding and analysis of high-rise buildings. Renowned speakers from all over the world informed the specialised audience about challenges, as well as about behavioural and social dimensions of growing cities, where high-rise buildings became a major phenomena.

Within this major topic, security measures in high-rise buildings were discussed. A total security concept contains several issues, beginning with communication, prevention and self protection, or such logistical measures like developing a water strategy for high-rise buildings.

Monika and Julius Thurnher spoke about maintenance and safety issues in the curtain wall.
The concept of iku®windows covers security, not only for the tenants, but also for the maintenance people. The self-cleaning façade system works by the touch of a button and the maintenance system is an important addition in the security concept of a building. Besides maintenance, iku®windows is able to offer an appropriate instrument in the frame of evacuation plans in high-rise buildings: The iku®windows evacuation unit. These cutting edge façade technologies attracted high interest by the audience.
