Tek Vue is a glass office-front system that responds to the essential needs of today’s workplace. The system offers the essential elements; a single-center glass wall program and pared down, yet progressive, pivot and barn door program. The system is easy to install, uses materials efficiently and offers flexibility in specification.
Tek Vue is optimized to integrate with conventional building construction as well as Teknions Altos and Focus programs to satisfy budget or performance requirements. Thin wall and door profiles take up little real estate and respond to varying building conditions through effective site accommodation.
Tek Vue framing elements are universal in nature to streamline on-site staging and accelerate installation procedures. Pivot and barn door frames are not specific to individual door leafs, hardware or ceiling heights, thereby allowing easy placement anywhere on the floorplan.
The Tek Vue wall program was built from the ground up to re-envision how the product could be integrated into building architecture while improving installation procedures at all costs.
The base frame is the core of the wall program, and was designed with macro and micro levelling capabilities, ensuring easy installation and building integration.
Articulating capabilities were developed to respond to irregularities in base building environments, further extending the application range of the product.
Tek Vue was designed to transition to other Teknion wall programs, such as Altos and Focus, to leverage their functionality with solid fascias and furniture integration.
Framing elements were designed to house a new low profile electrics program while also taking into consideration future technology integration.
The barn door program consists of a single universal door frame and an economical frameless glass leaf. The door frame is composed of an adjustable top rail that can be mounted to the interior or exterior of the storefront. Small and large scale prototypes were developed to validate system logic and structural concerns.

The pivot door program contains a single universal door frame which can house a frameless glass, framed glass or solid leaf. Pivot doors provide easy installation, a high level of adjustability and more integrated finishes when compared to traditional hinge doors. Large scale door prototypes provided proof of concept during the development process.
