Performance, Sustainability & Design
The high performance compound used by EasyWindows is KOMALIT Z. The longevity and superior quality of this material has been conclusively proved for over 30 years. The material compound performs to worldwide standards for strength, durability, head stability, colour retention and termite resistance. It significantly exceeds the stringent requirements of the highest classification of DIN standard 77498 for impact resistance. This provides an additional margin of safety to the quality of the product during fabrication, installation and service.
The protection against noise is an essential characteristic of a modern window in order to ensure a comfortable life both at home and in the office. Sound insulation in the Easy Windows profile design is inherently good. It is further enhanced by fitting steel reinforcing and by choosing the appropriate glass. Easy Windows uPVC windows come up to the German DIN Standard for sound insulation Class 5, (high acoustic insulation) DIN 4109.
No matter in which climate Easy Windows uPVC windows are installed, they contribute to a cosy and comfortable atmosphere in your home. As the design of the Easy Windows system prevents thermal bridging, the thermal insulating performance of the finished window or door is exceptionally good. The glazing is also of utmost importance for good thermal values, also contributing to a substantial energy saving. Window and door systems from Easy Windows eliminate the problem of water condensation on the window panes inside the house. In official tests, these window profiles easily passed the tests for Class 1 according to DIN 4108 (thermal conductivity of window).
Due to their excellent material properties, EasyWindows uPVC windows and doors are ideal for being installed in buildings close to the sea where they are permanently exposed to strong wind, heavy rain and salty air. The windows have passed several severe tests by official institutions. All window types are capable of withstanding the tests specified in BS (British Standards) 5368, Part 3 1978 (wind resistance test up to a wind pressure of 2400 PA). Therefore, EasyWindows profiles can also be fitted in high-rise buildings without any problems.
More than any other building material, EasyWindows uPVC windows and doors keep their excellent material properties even after many years in use. As a matter of fact, they do not alter under extreme temperature or weathering. Thanks to the material compound of the EasyWindows uPVC profiles, they show no negative effects caused by heavy rain, snow, strong sun or smog. They do not rot, corrode nor warp, and even after many years, the windows are still attractive, perfectly tight and working well.
EasyWindows uPVC window and door systems have successfully been used in swimming pools, marine and ocean environments without detriment to the surface finish or performance. One of the main assets of EasyWindows window and door systems is their resistance to driving rain and their joint tightness. EasyWindows uPVC profiles fulfil the demands of DIN 18055 (Resistance to driving rain). All window types are designed to be watertight when tested up to 300 PA limit specified in BS 6375: Performance of Windows Part 1, 1989 Classification for weather tightness. Some types achieve a 600 PA rating.
In tropical climates wooden windows and doors are often destroyed by termites, whereas EasyWindows uPVC windows and doors are fully resistant to these insects. Thanks to the highly developed material compound of EasyWindows uPVC windows and doors termites are not able to attack the uPVC profiles.
Thanks to modern technology, EasyWindows windows and doors will practically last forever. For this reason, they are an excellent investment for your home as they do not involve any future maintenance costs. Furthermore, combined with modern thermal insulation glass, EasyWindows profiles will help to achieve a sustainable energy saving effect and are, therefore, an even better investment.
The extrusion process of uPVC window and door profiles is relatively energy efficient, compared with other materials. Another benefit: where uPVC has been specified as an alternative to wood, the rate of consumption of forests is slowed. EasyWindows uPVC window and door systems are environmentally friendly as they can be fully recycled and reused for the production of uPVC profiles.
Easy Windows uPVC window and door systems do not require regular painting and expensive maintenance. The profiles do not rot, warp nor corrode even in tropical and salty climates. Therefore, their maintenance is reduced to simple cleaning and does not involve any further costs.
High-strength window and door profiles made of uPVC offer the best solution for increased safety. Special fittings and glazing, qualified window fabrication and expert installation make the window worthy of being termed "burglar-proof".
Easy Windows uPVC window systems offer the most varied styles and designs. The technical limitations of the past have been overcome and todays EasyWindows uVPC windows and doors can be fitted into any type of property from residential houses and apartments to commercial buildings such as hotels, hospitals and modern office blocks. With their great versatility the EasyWindows uPVC windows and doors will satisfy any taste in style and design and have proven to be the best material even for the restoration of historical buildings.
Fire tests have shown that EasyWindows uPVC materials, being naturally flame retardant throughout their product life, will not cause, support or enhance the development of accidental fire. Unlike timber windows, the uPVC sections do not support combustion and are in fact self-extinguishing. This quality prevents the promotion of fire spread. So, EasyWindows window and door systems offer considerable fire protection. The special profile compound possesses a fire-retardant rating according to DIN 4102. It also fulfils Class 1 fire resistance (ie. most resistant) as defined in BS (British Standards) 476: Part 7. Therefore, EasyWindows profiles are an effective means for preventive fire protection.
