Dormers – The

Once the ventilation of roof spaces used are dormers today especially for the ornament and the illumination of a roof spaces. Their big advantage arises after installing: dormers create new space in the attic because they protrude beyond the original roof. Especially when a low roof slope and roof slopes just above the floor, these diverse window constructions are paying off. More than roof Windows give a face to the House and according to Dormer style a personal touch. Glazed roof dormers can keep up with their generous light with skylights. You can also subsequently fitted.

This should be well planned and carried out by a qualified electrician. As dormer windows change the appearance of a House, they are subject to approval. Therefore, an architect is to consult. In addition, it is advisable to check the buildings. To clarify is among other things, whether the roof is good and sufficient capacity of the attic.

The forms range from schemes, trapezoidal, Nick, below or Round and saddle Dormer Windows up to swinging bat dormers (Lycaon, oculi) as a further development of the towing Dormer. Bat dormers are not very large and only a small amount of light in the attic. But they do offer the greatest weather protection by their very aesthetic curve. Appropriate building materials in question come according to dormers and roofing. The tow Dormer, a kind of roof hatch, can be covered with the same material as the rest of the roof. Its walls, which are heavily exposed to the weather, be clothed with kleinteiligem deck material (such as unverfalzten roof tiles). Due to the pre-set roof pitch, an additional roof cover should be on the dormer at brick covering. For the bat Dormer curved wooden components to use due to its elaborate construction and covers them with straw, Reed or Bieber tail bricks. The trapezoidal Dormer but resembles the tow Dormer, but differs by the slanted side walls.

Flush Fireresistant Glass

Requirements for preventive fire protection with aspects of aesthetics, combining design and efficiency, are the primary challenges in designing buildings. To ensure the operation in case of fire, there are standardized simulation tests. Fire protection glazing are classified in different fire resistance classes (F30, F60, F90, etc) and need the smoke passage of fire, and prevent heat at least over the specified period of time. The successful test is the basis for applying for a general building control approval at the German Institute for building technology. “Is the fixed glazing Planline 30 with the Nr. 19.14 – 1953 an approved construction product of fire resistance class F30 according to DIN 4102-13 design and fire protection with plays Planline 30 wood and glass of visually appealing and varied building materials wood the supporting role”. While you have the free choice of the type of wood, unless the density (air dry) is reached m of 410 kg / m. The minimum cross section dimensions of the frame profile are 40 x 68 mm.

The finish is run individually according to customer requirements. Oiled, clear or coloured lacquered matt or glossy. The greatest possible degree of the Planline glasses is 1500 x 2880 mm across – as well as horizontally. The glasses can be individually finished to the exact desired size (in mm). The margin of approx. 39 mm can this be enamelled in different colours according to RAL. Multi compatible Planline 30 can be run as a transparent window, skylight, side, glass panels in doors or continuous glazing (continuous). Is the fire-resistant glass with additional performance characteristics can be combined such as soundproofing, radiation and laser protection, personal safety and privacy in the space between the panes and offers perfect solutions for Office buildings, hospitals, schools and kindergartens, as well as residential and commercial buildings. Easy installation the ease of installation of the glass elements convinced because the locking system quickly and easily with the solid wood frame and subsequently invisible can be anchored.
