A lot of glass is used for modern buildings, high windows that reach from the ceiling to the floor, could they be a risk?
When choosing windows, attention should be paid to personal safety. When broken, tempered glass will become non-hazardous debris and in case of laminated glass, the laminating film does not allow it to fall out from the opening.
Are wooden windows suitable for, e.g. sauna steam room windows?
Wooden windows are the most suitable choice for the steam room, because they can be made of glulam without finger joints that thanks to its natural finishing is suitable for the interior of a steam room. The openable and closed windows made of wood profile are equipped with tempered 3-glaze glass packs, which resist larger differences in temperatures and are four to five times stronger than the non-tempered glass. The standard solution of the steam room windows includes concealed hinges and wooden handles.
Energy-efficiency is the keyword for wooden windows, terrace doors and front doors, what does it mean?
It means that a good window or door helps to save on heating costs! The insulation indicators depend on materials, profile thickness, number of sealing and assembly quality – the lower the thermal conductivity of the materials used in manufacturing, the better the insulation of the final product.
The thermal conductivity of a window is indicated with U (the thermal resistance of the entire window – Uw, thermal resistance of the glazing- Ug) and therefore it is worth remembering that the lower the U number, the better insulating qualities and the better you feel when you are near windows with good thermal qualities.
After the windows and doors have been installed on the building, what next? Should I maintain them somehow?
You should definitely not forget the aftercare of doors and windows – annual cleaning plays an important role in extending the lifespan of windows. Dust and dirt that have accumulated on the paint covering of the wooden surface are the enemies and may condensate humidity and thereby damage the surface of the wood. You do not have to hire a specialist for maintenance, anyone can do it – you just have to clean the wooden surfaces with a damp cloth and treat the sealing with silicon oil, grease the tongues, and then you can be sure your windows will last.
I would like to take this opportunity to break some prejudices – although nobody doubts in the value of high-quality wooden windows, opting for them usually stopped by something – there is a fear of immense load of work and there is no accurate understanding of what are the sums involved. But there is nothing simpler than sending a simple price query to a window manufacturer! Making a calculation does not oblige you to order the products – after the estimate of the cost is known you can decide how to move on with the construction process and when to order new wood glazed windows.
In the windows of today, the front seat is taken by the special glass
Energy saving, thermal comfort and light
According to estimations, heat lost through windows makes up approximately 26% of the total heat lost in a building, so modern energy-efficient windows help to decrease that loss. If you choose bright energy-efficient glazing that allows more natural light to enter the rooms, you increase the sense of comfort and well-being and decrease the use of artificial lighting.
Sunlight and UV protection
Sunlight contains ultraviolet light that may be hazardous for people as well as furnishings, window and furniture covering. Laminated glass is now available with a thin acoustic film that protects against the fading effects of the UV rays. Modern and efficient sun protection glasses are characterised by higher level of visible light, neutral optics and insulation, which combine the advantages of the high-tech covering into an especially neutral sun protection glass.
Tempered and/or laminated glass helps you protect yourself and your family against potential injuries from broken glass. Tempered and laminated glass helps to ensure safe and secure home, preventing burglars and intruders from attacking your home.
Noise-reducing film provides new opportunities in different noisy environments.
Protection against fire
The fireguard and security glass that insulates heat offers protection and isolation for 30 minutes. The fireguard windows are used in the walls of buildings that are located very close to each other, where there is a need for additional light from outside in order to prevent the spreading of fire from building to building.
Easy to maintain
Self-cleaning glass that drastically changes the normal window-washing process.
