Panoramic glazing: nuances that are important to know
Panoramic glazing is veryclaimed by the design decision. Many construction companies in the construction of multi-storey complexes and cottages resort to this type of glazing when decorating facades with views of nature or modern urban neighborhoods. The constructions look spectacular both outside the house and inside.
Panoramic windows are installed on the entire wall or occupy most of it from floor to ceiling. Visually, they increase the space of the room and let in large streams of natural light.
In multi-storey houses of old construction alsoPanoramic windows are used. They are mounted on balconies and loggias. Small rooms are used as a separate corner - a winter garden, an office, or combined with adjacent rooms. In the second case, the help of specialists is necessary. Previously, they are developing the redevelopment of housing, after approval of which, work is being done. This solution allows to increase the area of the room without completely disturbing the bearing walls and structures and completely change its interior. However, when deciding on the installation of panoramic glazing in the apartment, you should carefully think over all the technical aspects of the event.
Selection of double-glazed windows
The choice of double-glazed windows takes into account the purpose of the room, the climate in a particular region.
- For unheated rooms, for example, balconies, a standard "cold glazing" with an aluminum or PVC profile is suitable.
- For living rooms are selected panoramic 3-xchamber plastic or wooden windows with energy-saving double-glazed windows. To increase the thermal insulation properties of the structures, the chambers are filled with a special gas. Such products are more expensive than standard analogues, however, due to the increased thermal insulation characteristics and noise absorption, they fully justify their price.
When choosing a double-glazed window, special attention is paid togive the choice of the manufacturer. Preference should be given to proven brands that have proven themselves in the windows market as conscientious and responsible manufacturers. Such organizations allocate large funds for the development and introduction of new technologies in production, improving the quality of manufactured products. They care about the reputation of the company, so they provide guarantees for a long time.
To ensure that in winter,accumulated condensate and did not appear frost, in a room with panoramic glazing it is necessary to think in advance of the operation of heating systems and forced ventilation. The constant circulation of air in the room does not allow evaporation to settle on the windows. If the house is not equipped with forced ventilation, window manufacturers recommend mounting special valves in the opening of the transom. They do not create drafts and do not lower the temperature in the house, while constantly maintaining the necessary level of air exchange.
In the cold and northern regions specialistsrecommend installing panoramic glazing on the facades facing south. In order to avoid frost from the windows in winter, and frost on the windows, it is enough to install slotted convectors in the floor. They are used as needed, which makes it possible to economically expend energy resources and maintain the temperature of housing at their own discretion.
