Tape fitting on the frame
  • If you make a CE Norm fitting you must put the tape on the frame
  • Montageband WelthausMontage band Haustuer

Put the frame on his place. Fit it !!
  • Take the frame and align with the wall in the right place.
  • If is an old building you must put in the same place but where is a new building you must put where the medium isotherm of the 10 Celsius degrees, cross the frame at about 5 cm from outside. If on your plan it isn't mark this isotherm you can ask your building engineer. Also if he don't know the best is to put in the middle of the wall in case of traditional wall, or at the exterior when you make a thermal insulation over the wall.
  • After this decision you must align the frame to be vertical.
  • Under the threshold must be something strong a concrete, stone, wood piece.
  • You can not put under the door foam. You can use only a little silicon to make the insulation
  • Check with the level spirit to be Okay. Use the small wood  edges to align and fix
  • After that take the screws and fix in the wall.
  • Check continuously with the spirit level to be Okay.
  • To avoid the deformation of the frame, before put the foam you must cut some adequate wood pieces and put in the frame. If is good fixed in the screws you dont need that.

General questions The automotion EAV3.

Which is the best windows for me?

To find the right plastic windows, we have put together a brief overview of the thermal insulation properties of the window systems here. Not everyone is a professional and understands the many technical terms. That is why you will find so you can read the table correctly, here is a brief summary. How well contained a window can be the Uw value read (More information about the U-value can be found here).

Dabei ist der Uw-Wert (w=window) der Gesamtwert aus:

  • Uf-Wert (f=frame), das ist der U-Wert des Rahmens
  • Ug-Wert (g=glazing), das ist der U-Wert für die Verglasung

Der U-Wert lässt sich durch bestimmte Bauteile verbessern:

  • Profil
  • Glas-Abstandhalter
  • Verglasung (2fach/3fach)
