During construction or renovation, it is essential to think about how to choose windows and doors.
The evaluation criteria are many, but our experience suggests you to evaluate some important factors.
Read the list below to know the features you must consider when choosing new windows.
Safety: it is a fundamental aspect. Starting from the consideration that no residential building window frame is capable of absolutely preventing the break-in, it is good to consider that the longer the burglary time, the greater the chances that the thief will be heard, thus finding himself forced to give up.
Acoustic and thermal insulation to give rest to the mind and well-being to the body. If we think that it is possible to get used to noise, it is partly so because at some point our ears stop perceiving, while our brain continues to tire with harmful consequences. As for the ability to properly isolate from bad weather, there is no doubt that this is one of the primary functions of a window, thus reconciling physical well-being with the environmental and economic needs of energy saving.
Aesthetics are definitely important for overall harmony. Our fixtures can be tailor made, in any size, shape and color. Sometimes the Fine Arts give strict directives on which we perfectly model our product without sacrificing practical needs.
It is precisely the individual needs that influence the choice of the frame material.
Aesthetic, thermal and safety requirements, very high technical performances and a particular attention to the environment rigorously determine the material with which we already make our fixtures.
Assuming that Capoferri uses only the finest materials, find out which are the best windows for each building.
Capoferri takes care of every single production phase, from the selection of essences, to cutting, seasoning up to processing.
The particular feature of this alloy of oxidizing in contact with air without altering its physical properties varies its surface appearance, thus obtaining finishes such as light, medium or dark bronze.
Highly resistant to corrosion, it is ideal for buildings near the sea.
Particularly robust, this material allows us to create thin structures, with an essential design, such as large glass facades.
How important is the type of glass when choosing windows?
Well-being, safety, savings, as well as respect for the environment also depend on this single element.
On what basis should the effectiveness of new windows be assessed?
If once we used to measure the insulating capacity of glass according to their thickness, today the evaluation is much more complex.
Its quality depends on its structure, but on the type of glass too.
At the time of purchase, the word “double glazing” is widespread. This is the system consisting of two or more glasses spaced by an air chamber, which improves its insulation.
In particularly noisy or busy areas, it is amazing to notice how many benefits our mind takes from silence. Sound-absorbing glasses promote concentration, rest and even emotional balance.
A good resistance to heat and low temperatures is essential for living comfortably, by keeping costs and minimally affecting the planet.
Last but not least, feeling safe in your home or knowing that your belongings are carefully guarded is mainly determined by the type of glass installed on your window frames. In fact, the impact resistance is basic both to prevent attempted thefts and for safety in case of breakage of the glass surface.
When choosing new windows for a home or a company,you have to keep in mind that the type of accessories will determine its general aesthetics.
The hardware is part of these accessories and it must be perfectly in harmony with the design and style of this latter.
The visible opening and closing mechanisms of a window or French door stand out at first glance. The mechanization systems and additional safety devices, the handles and everything that surrounds the window, such as the different shading, blackout blinds, roller shutters, horizontal or vertical packaging and any other kind of accessory are designed and created by Capoferri. They are apparently secondary factors on which the total aspect of the frame depends.
Even domestic comfort, rooms properly lit by natural light, functionality and balance of volumes, materials and colors depend on our ability to create refined and discrete sets, in which beauty is concretized on the whole and not in the single parts.
It is not easy to have an overview of fixtures and suitable accessories. The experience of our architects is available to listen to individual requests and transform them into a set in which the customer will identify his expectations.
