Ways to Open Wooden Windows

The mechanism of tilt and turn windows allows your house to breathe. The mechanism provides your house with several possibilities of ventilation: by rotating the handle 180o the wing opens approximately 17 cm, whereas by rotating the handle 135o the wing opens for 10-13 mm, and although the window is actually closed, a slower and smoother ventilation is taking place.

Bi-fold windows are the most beautiful way to connect two spaces without optical barrier. When the window is open, the wings are folded up so that they occupy the minimum space. Its low threshold of 25 mm height adds to its beautiful design and provides soundless and gentle move of the wings while opening.

The mechanism of tilt and slide allows the wing to slide on the second wing and tilt. When in the closed position, the wings are aligned, and special designed security accessories guarantee the airtight sealing of the window.

The typology of the window achieves the maximum thermal efficiency, sound insulation, air tightness and water tightness.

A vertically or horizontally pivoted window or terrace door opens with its sash pivoting around an axis placed in the centre of the frame’s transverse pieces.

A sophisticated window, it applies usually to large openings and to all contemporary styles.

The double-hung window -particularly widespread across North America- is an ideal solution in cases of lack of space. While opening, the sash slides vertically to the top and stabilises at the exact point you wish.

Advanced technology offers flexibility of production and gives us the possibility of creating every window type in diverse shapes. Arched, round, trapezoid and triangle windows carry all the properties and advantages of orthogonal windows, allowing a harmonic look inside and outside of the building.

Thermal transmittance

What it is

Thermal transmittance, also known as U-value, is the rate of transfer of heat (in watts) through one square metre of a structure, divided by the difference in temperature across the structure. It is expressed in watts per square metre kelvin, W/m²K.

What it expresses

“U value” is commonly used to describe the thermal performance of window installations and glazing. When the ‘U value’ decreases it represents a better thermal performance, so the lower the U value the better the thermal performance. There are various elements of ‘U values’ that are relevant when thinking about the thermal performance of windows: Uw, Ug, Uf and Ψg. It is important to note that all standard Uw, Ug or Uf factors given for glass and installations are generally standardisations, the size and finishes do affect the thermal performance of the installation.

Uw, Uf, Ug, Ψg values

Ug and Uf values refer to the thermal performance of the glazing and window frame, respectively. PSIG value measures the thermal transmittance occurring through the glazing spacer. These thermal performances are combined together with the sizes of the opening/framing to give you an overall U value for the installation referred to as the Uw value.

Air permeability

What it means

Air Permeability refers to the amount of air that will travel through a window or door system in its closed position.

Testing

Air permeability testing relies on the quality of the systems sealing, engineering and manufacturing to ensure that all opening segments seal together well and fully to stop as much air travel through a system as possible.

Air permeability testing includes testing through the total surface of window movable parts and across the junctions.

Test control and classification

The European Standard regarding Air Permeability in windows and doors is EN 12207, the classification is defined by testing method, which is conducted on completed window or door assemblies in a factory or laboratory setting by licensed testing facilities such as the Rosenheim Institute in Germany. The classes for EN12207 (EN1026) range from class 0 (the lowest) to class 4 (the highest).

Class 4 indicates that the window or door system has been tested under pressures up to 600 Pa and has had below the class limit of air permeability through system along the panel joint and overall system area.

Resistance to wind loads

What it means

Resistance to wind-load is a measure of the product’s structural strength. It is the capacity of a window, subjected to strong pressures, like that caused by wind, to maintain an acceptable deformation and to preserve its properties.

Testing

The testing in resistance to wind loads examines the stability of the window’s structural elements.

Resistance to wind loads is measured in accordance with the ΕΝ 12211 standard. During the test, the closed window is subjected to abrupt and strong pressures, and later it is verified that it has maintained its functional and performance characteristics.

Test control and classification

The window is classified in five classes according to the intensity of wind pressure (from 1 to 5) and three classes according to the level of frontal deflection (A, B, C; C being the less deflection). The two classes combined, provide the final classification of the window, with C5 being the best.

Water tightness

What it means

Water tightness of a window refers to its capacity to resist water filtrations, when in closed position.

Watertightness depends on window’s design and the quality of construction (materials used, gluing methods).

Testing

Water tightness is determined according to EN-1027 standard. Windows are tested in laboratories that simulate weather conditions. The windows are installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification and completely exposed to rain, and they are sprayed at increasing air pressure (to simulate wind-driven rain) until water penetrates the window.

Test control and classification

The classification of windows according to their water tightness is measured by the pressure level where the first filtration occurs. This scale uses an alphanumeric index and it is divided into segments going from less tightness to more tightness, from 1A to 9A.

Two testing methods are foreseen for water tightness. In the first method (A) the window is fully exposed to weather conditions, whereas in method B, it is partially exposed. 9A represents the highest level of resistance to conditions of violent storm, under 600 Pa pressure. Windows that are tested to pressure more than 600Pa, are classified as

Exxxx, with xxxx representing the actual pressure (i.e. E1800 means that the pressure subjected to the window is 1800 Pa).
