Recent changes to construction law have included the introduction of a new “urban areas” construction area category. Municipalities are now permitted to offer living space in neighbourhoods that are already very built up, and where businesses and apartments are located in close proximity.
The new "GEALAN Hafen-City-Fenster" (Hafencity Window) is perfect for use in these types of location: inner-city residential complexes with inhabitants who are not willing to eliminate natural ventilation, despite increased noise emissions. In other words, this window concept is a response to the increasing density of construction in major cities.
It is particularly attractive to developers and contractors, representing a modern window design that combines natural ventilation with soundproofing.
