You can know more about our products through section drawing, there will be a detailed description.

Sealing strip:

All of the sealing strip is of EPDM material,it has good flexibility and weather rsistance,and it can be applied in a wide temperature range enviroments.
From the section drawing we can see that the connection between seal and seal,seal and frame is very tight which is achieve good airtightness and waterproof function.

Insulation strip:

German Technoform Bautec insulation strips can provide good sound and heat insulation,it greatly improves the energy performance of window and door.
The insulation strip position in the awning window is designed with precise construction by engineer.

Design feature:

In the Awning window section profile,the designer uses a multistep design to solve the rain permeation.Sealing strip is applied almost everywhere around the window, its tight connection with profile makes the window come with great airtightness, and with thermally brokern insulation strip application,the awning window can help reduce the family energy comsumption.

There are 3 types of awning window handle for option.

As we all know,hardware is one of the key important of window and door,it connects the window and door structure.And the quality of hardware can affect the window and door performance,good quality hardware and properly installation affect the airtightness and waterproof.Hardware can also provide security and burglarproof function.Quality hardware for Awning window can improve the window stability and protect the house safety.

Glass plays an important role, its function for sound and heat insulation is as important as Aluminum profile.
Glass can be made in different layers for different purpose, like single glazing, double glazing and triple glazing,higher layers glass has better sound and heat insulation.
Glass is the eye of a window and door, we can have a clear view of outside through glass.

Here are the glass options with different function:

Toughened glass
is made from annealed glass treated with a thermal tempering process which increases its mechanical resistance to breakage.When toughened glass breaks,it will fall into small fragments instead of long large and sharp pieces.Single toughened glass or double toughened glass are quite popular,sometimes even triple toughened glass is required for better sound insulation.

Tinted glass
is treated with a layer of film or coating that can reduces the transmission of light through it.With different film colors,like light grey,dark grey,or bronze which can affect the glazing color and can provide privacy for home owners.For higher energy efficient performance,dual pane tinted glazing with argon gas is a popular configuration applied in windows and doors.

Low E glass
has a microscopically thin, transparent coating that reflects long-wave infrared energy (or heat). This layer of coating can also minimize the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light that can pass through glass without compromising the amount of visible light that is transmitted.And the coating won’t be scratched off becuase it is applied to the inside of the glass.

Laminated glass
is made of two layers of toughened glass with one”interlayers” of polymeric material bonded between the glass layers.The advantage of laminated glass is that when it breaks,the glass fragments are held together by the interlayer which highly reduces the safety hazard.Besides the good safety laminated glass brings,it also has good sound insulation function.

Frosted glass 
is also called obscure glass,it can provide great privacy while allows sunlight enter the room.Frosted glass is used in bathroom
windows and doors mostly.
