Glaziers and their Properties
The process of manufacturing of the glass is simple. Mix three minerals then heated until synchoneftoun into one.
These substances are, the sand gives silicon, calcium carbonate (limestone) that stabilizes the glass will not dissolve in water. The third substance is sodium carbonate (soda) which lowers the melting point of the sand.
In these components, depending on how we want to show the glass, add other ingredients such as various metal oxides. In this way the glass gets colored. If for example, the substances added iron containing glass becomes brown or green. When containing cobalt or chromium glass is green or blue.
NOTE: A good quality glass is not the image you have created distortion!
Categories Window Frames in
The windows or panes used in windows play a very important role in the final performance of the construction. There are many choices in types panes and each option depends on the position of the frame.
Energy glazing (low-e)
Double glazing (conventional or energy)
Triple glazing (Conventional or energy)
Single glazing (conventional)
Calorific Glass (low-e)
The energy windows or low emissivity glazing (low - emissivity) at one side of the surface have a special coating which acts like a mirror in the infrared and ultraviolet portion of the electromagnetic radiation. As a result is the reduction of the thermal radiation of the sun passes through the glass. MODERN leaves no escape outwards nor the thermal radiation of the interior.
This coating consists of a very thin transparent film. Energy windows are never used alone only as double or triple.
It should note that the use of energy glass greatly reduces the fading of color (curtains - roundtrips furniture) from the sunlight and also have great exoikonomisi energy, leaving us toportofoli always more crowded !!!
double Glazed Windows
Double glazing consisting mainly of two panes which are held within their silk through a spacer. Among the glass is dry air.
The spacer is made of aluminum and are placed inside the so called silicates to absorb moisture. If you choose one greater than a spacer size, then grows more highly insulating construction. The construction Necklace special melt.
Also, the double glazing we can do combinations of glass:
Only compatible / maverick / single energy
Single conventional / maverick / triplex
Single ENERGY / maverick / triplex
It is worth noting that in combinations with energy efficient windows, vacuum the glass can be filled with gas (argon) thus increasing even more highly insulate the windows !!!
triple Glazed Windows
The triple glazing is the extension of the double plus another spacer and glass.
The combinations of glass that can prokipsoun here are:
Single Energy / maverick / single conventional / maverick / single energy
Single Energy / maverick / single conventional / maverick / triplex
Single conventional / maverick / single conventional / maverick / single energy
Single conventional / maverick / single conventional / maverick / triplex
Single conventional / maverick / single conventional / maverick / single conventional
The triple glazed windows have much better results than the double. Also construction which will be placed should be enhanced weight ratio.
Note that here (combinations with energy) can be done using gas (argon)
The triplex windows are the result of combination of two or more panes. The material that joins membrane is transparent or translucent or colored. With this combination the glass is very impact resistant, but even if it does not break because collapsing is retained by the membrane. And when the look perpendicular to their surface, they seem like single. The windows are usually used in frames is 3 + 3 or 4 + 3.
Glass triplex type 3 + 3 + 3 (three windows / two membranes) are characterized as anti-vandal and triplex structures 5 + 5 + 5 as bulletproof.
These windows "baked" in an oven to effect cure. The breakage is very difficult but even if break crumble into small pieces without creating great chances of injury.
The securit glazing used in special constructions such as glass doors, windows roundtrips.
The single glazing is known to all the "conventional" name. Used in locations with cooling or heating and the thickness of frames is not necessary between 4 eos 12 mm.
