51. Plan Renove Madrid

EXTENSION OF THE DURATION OF THE WINDOWS REPLACEMENT PROGRAMME IN THE AUTONOMOUS COMMUNITY OF MADRID

The Autonomous Community of Madrid extended the duration of the Windows Replacement Programme until 30 September this year, to further promote the improvement of the thermal insulation of residential buildings, houses, offices and hotels. Our company is a point of reference in the sector due to the technology used in the production of double-glazed windows, which can reduce heat and air-conditioning losses, and improve thermal comfort of buildings. The Administration of Madrid made available the website www.planrenovedeventanas.com containing all requirements and conditions that must be met in order to receive a grant.

The modernization of glazing systems involves improved thermal comfort, reduced CO2 and supports the environmental protection. It is also worth mentioning other resulting benefits such as improved acoustics, enhanced security through improved locking and reduced condensation of water in the rooms.

The grant is up to 70 € per square meter of a double-glazed pane with reinforced thermal insulation. You may apply for a grant until 30 September. All information is available on the website www.planrenovedeventanas.com.13

RS-70 CEOi

New documentation of RS-70 system with the European Fitting Groove by exlabesa is available

We have just provided our customers with the documentation of one of our newest systems from our wide and varied offer, RS-70 Hidden Sash system with the European Fitting Groove.

Within the aluminium systems of exlabesa, RS Series are the latest and most up-to-date series. They are a part of the strategy that faces the new legal framework and the ever-increasing sensitivity to energy savings.

RS-70 Hidden Sash system connects the technology innovation, current aesthetics and solid structure. At a depth of 70 mm, its thermal values are close to the best of this family. By selectively placing the polyethylene foam, it was possible to reduce the heat loss through the window frame to a value of Uf = 1.7 W/m2K.

In the “Products” tab on our website, you can find safety data sheet, dossier, catalogue, structure cross-sections, test results and other information about this system. As a new item, we present the technical catalogue of the system in five languages: Spanish, English, French, Polish and German.

46. Taller de formación

Training workshops of exlabesa

The workshop proved its usefulness by taking an active part in the creation of a new Architectural Lab of exlabesa.

Our Training Workshop began the series of training courses on the systems, targeting dealers, factory workers and installers. The purpose of this workshop is to provide continuous training for the participants to maximize the performance of all our products and to offer the optimal and tailored service to each customer’s needs.

In order to broaden their knowledge, the participants work with mechanical saws, mechanical pruners, pneumatic presses, copiers, milling machines for drainage holes and PVC weldering machines. The workshop is fully equipped to allow the installation of any type of aluminium or PVC systems.

The courses are held in small groups to ensure maximum performance. In addition, the courses are personalized for customers who only wish to learn the subjects they are interested in.

It is also worth mentioning how important the training workshop is. As you know, it was a great help in the construction of a new Architectural Lab of exlabesa. A number of structural elements are created in our workshop to assemble them directly on the construction site to save time and costs.

The inauguration of the workshop was held in February this year, and its purpose is to meet all our needs of the training characteristics.

The New Architectural Lab At exlabesa highlights our industrial potential

exlabesa Architectural Lab, is the new headquarters for the Systems company, it demonstrates the industrial power of the company through the curtain wall created with the ECW-50 system. Its uniqueness has reached a new level through the production of a beam made of one of the largest aluminium profiles, which are manufactured in Spain, on which the wall sits.

The installed profile has over 30,000 cm4 of inertia and provides support for the curtain wall at 2.5 m above the ground level. However, the supports are suspended on the upper part, attachment to a large aluminium beam is carried out allowing for necessary vertical movement due to expansion.

In our Rois plant, we have a 6500-tone press. It allows to create profiles with a width of 62 cm and carry out extrusion cycles, without binding up to 500 kg.

The new building positions exlabesa as a leader in the world market for extrusion of aluminium and PVC, and allows us to show our capabilities, and the use of products we manufacture.

Curtain wall – a subject of the conference on Structural Glazing

Last March, we organized a conference on Structural Glazing, concentrating on the system of ECW-50 Curtain Wall. It was attended by three Universities from A Coruña, Technical University of Architecture, University of Technical Architecture and CESUGA.

The schedule involved two lectures and one visit to the construction site. The lectures consisted of two parts. The first concentrated on the different aspects of the curtain wall, such as energy efficiency, its components, requirements and design systems.   The second conference concentrated on the project of exlabesa Architectural Lab and the application of the concepts.

At the end, students and teachers could observe the installation of ECW-50 curtain wall during a visit to a construction site. The builders explained, from their point of view details of the construction, such as industrial pleats specifically designed for the exlabesa Architectural Lab large anodized posts of approx. 11.20 m length.

The technical sessions were successful completed, and in we had the opportunity to share our experience and project with the students and teachers of three universities.

At the beginning of March, new tests of RS-70 HOi system, 16-mm channel version, were carried out in the ENSATEC Laboratory, accredited as the European Notified Body. This confirmed the latest achievements in the development of the system, hidden fittings and hidden corner fittings which in comparison to previous studies, were further improved.

RS-70 HOi reached the top results which is the best in our range of viable systems. The tests were carried out on a window of a size of 1000×1200 mm, and reached the classification of E1950 CLASS for water resistance, and the assessment of CE3100 CLASS for wind resistance.

RS-70 HOi window system connects technology and innovation for aesthetics and solid structure. At a depth of 70 mm the outside appearance is an attractive feature which highlights its simple form. Due to the slim external aesthetics of the system you cannot distinguish the fixed lights from the opening sashes.
