GLOSSARY



A

  • ANTI-DRILLING PLAQUE
    a steel element which prevents puncturing from the outside
  • ARGON GAS
    argon (like krypton and xenon) within the glass chamber (two double glasses) increases thermal insulation

C

  • CEILING
    lower panel which closes the pelmet
  • 5-6 CHAMBER PROFILES
    pvc profiles feature several internal discontinuities called chambers. Their specific shape effects the profile's thermal and acoustic characteristics
  • COAT
    thermal coat insulation is an insulation system applied to the outer surface of the building, so that it completely wraps around it. This allows to avoid thermal bridges and the reduction of the debilitating effects against structures and outer wall surfaces caused by the quick variations of external temperatures; it also avoids at the same time the formation of condensation and improves home comfort

F

  • FAUX FRAME
    is the element which has direct contact with the building's structure or masonry; it is normally made of wood (or balsa) with any necessary accessories made of Pvc and it is an indispensable element because it ensures the stability of the door or window, it eases installation and maintains the thermal and acoustic characteristics of the door or window

G

  • GEARBOX
    The "gearbox system" is a manual oscillating rod system for lifting roller blinds
  • GLASS-STOP
    internal finish which "secures" the glass to the shutter's profile so that it doesn't fall out

L

  • LOW-EMISSION TREATMENT
    it is a deposit of metal oxides laid on the internal side of the internal glass which increases thermal performance without modifying in any noticeable way sunlight transmission values

P

  • PANEL SPACE
    a part of a window or door which is bordered on the sides by the frame; it defines the looks and functionality of the element (e.g.: panels with drawings or orienting louver systems)
  • PASSIVE HOUSE
    the passive house (Passivhaus in the original German) is a house which guarantees thermal comfort without any "conventional" heating system, like heaters, radiators or the like. The house is defined as passive because the sum of the passive heat contributions brought by sunlight through the windows and the heat generated inside the building by home appliances and the occupants themselves are almost enough to compensate for any losses of the masonry shell during the colder months
  • PUNCHES
    specific safety "bolts" which are activated (together with the hooks in the Hooks and Punch lock) by turning the locking key

S

  • SEMI CO-PLANAR SHUTTER
    the external wall of the shutter's profile, above the frame's seal, has an aesthetic and functional "protrusion" towards the inside in order to increase its thickness
  • SPAGNOLETTA
    the "spagnoletta" is a piece of metal hardware used mostly for closing various types of blinds for windows and external doors
  • STEP SHUTTER
    the external wall of the shutter's profile is "straight, meaning that it vertically continues along the same line of the seal of the frame underneath

W

  • WALL-SHOULDER
    the shoulder is the part of masonry or covering which surrounds a window or door hole
