The developer glazed the balconies to get protection for noise and wind
Lumon Schweiz AG was chosen as a partner in the Feldbreite project in Emmen, Switzerland. This beautiful apartment complex was completed 2022, and it includes 21 pieces of threshold, room-high loggia-type glazings.
The developer GENU Partner AG wanted to glaze the balconies to protect inhabitants from noise and wind. Their Project Manager Philippe M. Sonderegger tells that Lumon was their choice because of the high product-quality and good service. They were also happy with the price level Lumon was offering the project.
According to Mr. Sonderegger, the co-operation with Lumon has been good during the project. One of Lumon’s values is to be close to the customer.
“Despite some technical challenges, everything worked smoothly. Lumon Schweiz AG, together with their installation partner Küchler+Wyrsch AG, did a very good job,” says Mr. Sonderegger. “Lumon Business Development Manager in charge, with his honest and proactive communication, also convinced me personally”.

“It’s an easy choice for a developer as a value add-on”
Lumon’s glazing systems add value to any balcony by turning unprotected outdoor spaces into places with protection from the weather, providing more room for life. For developers and architects, glazing provides an easy opportunity to implement a value add-on.
Celebrating 30 years of better homes in Spain
When Lumon first embarked on its mission to change the way outdoor living is experienced in a small town in Finland, it was hard to imagine that some decades later, a 30M euro modern production facility for balcony glazing would be constructed in the heart of Andalusia. The decision of this extensive investment followed years of rapid growth in the Spanish market for Lumon, now celebrating its 30-year anniversary.
German visitors were impressed by Lumon’s impact on Finnish urban construction
Lumon first started its B2B sales operations in Germany in the mid 90’s, officially establishing a sister organization Lumon Deutschland GmbH in 2004. Lumon has continued to make its mark in the German cityscapes, with prominent growth especially in recent years. This growth is for example marked by the soon-completion of one of Lumon’s most significant projects in Germany, Roots, which will serve as a landmark in the city of Hamburg by the River Elbe.
