material – design – technology
designing with steel

In 70 years of history Secco Sistemi has designed and created numerous innovative systems of metal profiles for doors and windows for use in the field of architecture, thus contributing to the evolution to the engineering of these architectonic elements, developing the design and the performance, the efficiency and functionality, while further enhancing the strength and beauty of the materials implemented.

Of the highest quality, the metal alloys used by Secco Sistemi have precise characteristics: they are natural, whole and safe, ductile and versatile. Furthermore, while appreciated for their structural resistance and duration over time, necessitating little maintenance, they are also recyclable and re-usable.

These materials – galvanised steel, stainless steel, corten steel and brass – with their different surfaces and finishes and particular manufacturing present extraordinary potentiality of expression, and are capable of interpreting and transforming the design project into a concrete reality while perfectly blending into the surroundings and many landscapes that differ for environment and climate, tradition and culture. In-depth knowledge of the material properties and their manufacturing while fully respecting their characteristics and beauty is what distinguishes Secco Sistemi’s work and what enables us, in collaboration with the designers right from the preliminary phases onwards, to identify optimal solutions using the select material.

Secco Sistemi has identified structural and mechanical solutions for reducing the visible sections of the profiles to the minimum and for satisfying the most demanding requirements of heat and sound insulation, of resistance to break-in, resistance to wind and to fire: for doors, windows and façades, for windows and doors of large dimensions and for all types of openings, whether sliding, tilt-and-turn, pivot or hinged.

Today Secco Sistemi, thanks also to Secco Lab, appliesits engineering technology to all the components of the system, from the tubular profile to the thermal break, including also the accessories, special items, mechanisms for automatization and any special working of the metals.
