Passive that is very energy saving
More and more people want to build houses without compromising on energy efficiency. Buildings that require a minimum amount of heating energy are called passive. In such buildings the presence of family members and working household appliances often suffice to ensure proper temperature. Also solar energy gains going through the proper windows, i.e. those that let the sunlight in but prevent its escaping outside are of key importance. Such are our windows Passive 92.
The "magic" happens inside the frame
To minimize the escape of heat through the window frames, we have designed special chambers filled with aerogel. The material has a several times lower heat transfer rate then the wood itself. Thus we get a warm and at the same time strong frame allowing the installation of wide glazing units.
Always warm panes of glass
In the unique frame we mount a unit consisting of three or even four panes of glass. The spaces between panes of glass are filled with noble gas (argon or krypton). The unit is fitted with warm frames which improve thermal insulation properties in the area where it is joined to the window frame. As a result, the whole window (in the reference size) fitted with a pane of glass Ug=0.5 W/m2K achieves the coefficient value of less than 0.7 W/m2K. With larger windows the coefficient for the whole window is also significantly reduced. In addition, you may also use packets of a coefficient reaching the value of Ug=0.3 W/m2K which far exceeds the most stringent, prevailing on the market, requirements (until recently walls of new buildings had such parameters).
Strong passive structure
The window frame is constructed of four layers of properly prepared timber. Each layer is glued to another in such a way that their rings are arranged alternately. This makes the construction material is highly resistant to warping, twisting and mechanical deformations. As a result, the frame is stable and resistant to temperature and humidity changes.
Wooden windows far surpass PCV windows with their resistance to temperature changes and are ideal for large glazing of the southern walls of buildings.
Due to the parameters which a passive window must present, it is produced only from one type of wood - pine. It alone meets the high standards of thermal insulation. However, you may choose between an economical version - with finger-joined layers and a selected version with solid outer layers.
We love wooden windows for their appearance. Depending on your preferences you can choose one of several shapes of frameworks. From classic and delicate Softline, through elegant Retro,, to simple and contemporary Modern.
The beautiful frameworks can be complemented by top-class HOPPE handles. As standard we install aluminium handles, one- or two-sided (patio handles), lockable, whose colour can be matched e.g. to the colour of interior door handles at home.
Comfort of use
Top-class hardware is hidden under the beauty of nature. It ensures unchanging and comfortable operation of the mechanisms over the years. Thanks to it the use of windows is convenient, even when opening large surfaces. This element really affects the durability of the whole window because good hardware prevents unnecessary stress and hold the sash in the right position.
In our windows hardware by SIEGENIA and ROTO is installed. With automatic sash assembly line the installation is carried out perfectly. As standard each window is equipped with Hoppe handle with Secustik® security. On request, we use anti-theft hardware systems of RC1 and RC2 classes for break-in protection.
The windows can also be equipped with stepped tilt, electric drives, opening brakes, a ventilator can be installed or the position of the handle changed. There is also the possibility of using concealed hardware which makes sash hinges are not visible. We also offer solutions for the safety of children. When choosing the tilt first system, you may only tilt the window, and the opening function requires the use of a key. As a result, you can be calm about your children.
Durability for years
Proper selection and processing of materials, modern production process and the latest technology to protect wood made the wooden windows are currently the perfect solution. They are virtually unrivalled whenever appearance and quality of materials used as well as high comfort of using windows for years count. It is also a good choice for individuals who care about energy efficiency and consciously choose natural solutions.
Wooden windows in terms of performance may fear only "their younger siblings" in the form of wood-aluminium windows.
Beauty in nature
Wood can be stained in various colours and shades, at the same time preserving its visible woodgrains and authentic appearance of this noble material. When needed, it can be painted opaque for the desired effect of the interior design or appearance of the facade. The possibility of using different colours on the inner and outer side allows you to preserve the style of the facade and customise the interior.
Components are covered with top-quality Teknos GORI lacquers using 4-layer technology. Each layer performs a special function, such as closing the pores of wood, reducing discolouration, ensuring proper adhesion of layers as well as mechanical ans chemical resistance. With the process of automatic application, windows that look like new for years are produced in the currently most modern paint shop in Poland.
