Glazing and conservatories
Glazing means putting walls and ceiling consisting of vertical and horizontal frames or frameless installed glass panels and windows which serve to close some open spaces under roofs and sheds. Winter garden is a closed and glassed-in living space, most often a porch or terrace with either aluminium or steel horizontal and vertical construction, and openable parts as windows. Characteristic for the conservatories is the glass roof, which allows maximum access of light but at the same time protects the inside from bad weather conditions.
Aluminium glazing is called a combination of aluminium profiles and glass. The aluminium profiles are system-specialized, and especially designed for conservatories and greenhouses and other frameworks, they are mostly painted in different colors according to the RAL- catalogue or in wood patterns. The glass itself can be tinted, mirrored, matted, laminated, treated by chemical, mechanical or thermal processing, and combined in a double glass glazing. The opening parts can be sliding, hinged, with parallel opening, folding or by electrical motor and a remote control. These opportunities make the aluminium framework glazing very usable in almost every building or house.
With single glass
Single-glazed aluminium glazing is a suitable option for open sheds and unheated spaces as well as for conservatories. The profiles we use are system aluminium profiles with added EPDM seals with laminated or heat-treated (toughened) glass panels. The design construction thus obtained is simple, robust and reliable.
With double glass panes
Aluminium glazing with double glass panes is a preferred option for heated or unheated conservatories. The aluminium profiles for this kind of construction are thermally isolated by the so called thermal bridge and EPDM gaskets seals. The construction is resistant to harmful atmospheric influences, easy to clean and maintenance free. The double glass panes are composed of a top tempered glass with a minimum thickness of 6 mm. an aluminium or PVC spacer filled with desiccant to remove residual moisture and a laminated bottom glass with a minimum thickness of 7 mm. Glasses can be tinted, reflective, heat-insulating or serving as solar protection.
Steel glazing is a combination of steel profiles and glass. Steel profiles used for these works are with a rectangular or square cross-section and a wall thickness of at least 2 mm. Carbon or alloyed steels are used, and the assembling is done by welding or bolting methods. A steel work can be hot-dip galvanized and painted in different colors according to RAL catalogue or get wood-effect colors, stainless profiles can get additionally satin effect or be polished. Optionally glass can be tinted, mirrored, matt, laminated, as we as chemically, mechanically or heat-treated, glasses could be combined in a double glass sets. Steel glazing is characterized by high strength, relatively low intensity of profiling elements and a high level of light transmission.
With single glass
Single-glazed steel glazing is a suitable option for open sheds and unheated spaces as well as for conservatories. The profiles are being welded in a structure, and then painted by powder coating with added EPDM seals with laminated or heat-treated (toughened) glass panels. The design construction thus obtained is simple, robust and reliable and gives a lot of free choices for different architectural combinations.
With double glass panes
Steel glazing with double glass panes is a preferred option for heated or unheated conservatories. This kind of metal work is resistant to harmful atmospheric influences, easy to clean and maintenance free. The double glass panes are composed of a top tempered glass with a minimum thickness of 6 mm. an aluminium or PVC spacer filled with desiccant to remove residual moisture and a laminated bottom glass with a minimum thickness of 7 mm. Glasses can be tinted, reflective, heat-insulating or serving as solar protection.
The (window) frames for different glazing and conservatories can be profiled or non-profiled. There is a wide variety of profiles, glass and fittings suitable for different types of glazing and conservatories. Metal windows can protect from harmful atmospheric conditions, heat and soundproof the inside space of the building without interfering with light access.
Non-profiled glazing is suitable for terraces, verandas and conservatories with a nice view. Typical for this kind of glazing is the lack of vertical profiles and the opening properties of the opening parts. The mechanisms used for non-profiled glazing are sliding, hanging or folding parts, allowing maximum openable area and not disturbing the architectural appearance of the building. The glass used for this type of glazing is hardened or laminated. The seals are of silicone and colorless, and the leading rails - aluminium.
A profiled glazing can be made with aluminium or PVC profiles. Aluminium profiles have interrupted or non-interrupted heat isolation – so called thermal bridge. They are durable, have long life and can be painted in a wide range of colors. Aluminium joinery is elegant, reliable and easy to clean and maintain, with lots of opportunities of different opening mechanisms. It has small linear expansions; it is suitable for large construction entrances and is easily combined with non-standard opening mechanisms. PVC joinery itself is made of chamber PVC profiles with very good thermal and acoustic insulation properties. Combined with suitable glass panes it reduces the heat loss and the condensation occurring during the winter period.
Design and dimensioning
By conservatories and their glazing a constructive design project is being prepared, which includes the type of profiles and glasses, their dimensions, the way of assembly and subsequent processing, direction and way of opening, etc. After the project has been created, our qualified technician takes the exact dimensions and prepares the necessary documentation for manufacturing of the product.
The designer submits a working blueprint to our workshop for manufacturing of the staircases or ramp. There follows an optimization and cutting process according to the mentioned in the working blueprint measures of the parts and assembling the subunits by welding, bolt or screwing connection. Painting of the metal elements of the construction is being made by electrostatic application of powder polymeric anticorrosive and decorative coatings and following firing in thermoregulated furnaces. Glass elements and double glass panes are subjected to chemical, mechanical or thermal treatment depending on their function and location.
The delivery of the manufactured product and the materials needed for installation to the site is being done by specialized transport vehicles for such purposes. To avoid scratches and injuries the elements of the construction are beeing packed with transport foil.
When installing the winter garden or glazing, we first install the metal construction, then we place the glass panels or glass panes. Our experienced installers have the most advanced professional equipment to achieve the required accuracy and ease of installation works. We work exclusively with high quality materials and do not compromise with the quality of the fixing, sealing, waterproofing adhesives and sealing compounds we use. In order to prevent unwanted welding damage on the walls and floors of the object, the connection of the elements is being done by means of a bolt or a screw connection. After completing of the installation, the site is being cleaned from waste materials, filings and packaging foil.
