Why choose aluminium joinery?
One of the main advantages offered by aluminium joinery is the service life. As time goes by the aluminium hardens, has a reduced weight compared to PVC and laminated wood, and the coefficient of expansion is very small. Significant differences are also regarding the weight of the glazed surface, keeping the exterior appearance for a long time. It is excellent in terms of the effects of the sun’s rays on it. It is the recommended material for large joints taking into account weight and dilation. Another advantage is the possibility to choose, from a variety of colours and textures, even two-colour, with a remarkable resistance over time.

Where is it not recommended to use PVC joinery?
The use of PVC profiles is not recommended in large joints where, besides the fact that we have a large expansion coefficient, problems may arise when joining between the heel and the wall, between the heel and the movable sheet, even bending of profiles. The weight of these large joints must also be taken into account. If in aluminium, which is the easiest, the joint systems at the corners are mechanical, in PVC, the joint is by hot melting, but the steel reinforcement cannot be welded.
Also, it is not recommended to use PVC joinery profiles in the case of exterior doors for heavy traffic, interior doors, or glazed interior compartments. Choosing the material variant is quite complicated; there are special cases, so we recommend the advice of a specialist.
How to fix windows?
The windows are fixed to the wall with screws and special fasteners. The fixing elements vary depending on the type of material from which the wall is built (brick, concrete, BCA) on which the window will be mounted. The mounting team will use the fasteners suitable for the wall type.
The climate can be very harsh. How can this affect the PVC profile?
Barrier windows and doors are designed to withstand the extreme weather. The quality of the assembly made of PVC joinery and with insulated glass Barrier can withstand the hottest summers and the strongest sun, as well as the most severe winters, storms and even hail.
What role does foam play?
WINDOWS DO NOT MOUNT IN FOAM. It has a sealing role and is applied between the window sill and the wall. Do not accept the installation of windows only in foam, as there is a risk that they will bend and even fall. It is not recommended to open and close the window less than two hours after foam insulation. After 48 hours after foam sealing the windows, the surplus is removed and the interior / exterior masonry can be finished. If the foam is exposed, there is a risk that it will absorb the water from the precipitation and facilitate the appearance of the mould. The protective sheet of PVC profiles will be removed only after finishing the walls.
What are the glass options available?
Glass options are Float, Lowe, Planistar Sun, Triplex, and a host of other combinations.
What solutions are there to prevent the appearance of condensation?
From the point of view of the physical phenomenon, condensation is the transformation of water from vapours into liquid. The air can absorb more water as the temperature is higher. Therefore, when purchasing the carpentry you opt for quality, in terms of materials, execution and assembly, to obtain a good thermal insulation. In addition to proper ventilation, another important factor for avoiding condensation is adequate room heating and a balanced arrangement of heating sources.
What is the maximum quota of a thermal insulating glass that we can execute?
The maximum quota executed by Barrier is 3499×2000 mm.
