WINDOWS

The choice of the window type depends on the architecture of the house, location and the requirements set by the Party ordering and the architect. Unfortunately quite many buildings renovated or built during the last decades, where the choice of windows has failed catch the eye in the city. Bland plastic windows have been for case of several dignified and stylish buildings, which ruin the environment of the entire building.

It is great to admit that today the situation is changing and the choice of window is taken increasingly more seriously, this thanks to the general growth of awareness among sellers, manufacturers as well as clients. The wrong choice of window may ruin a building of cultural and environmental value, at the same time a window used in the old town does not fit a modern funk-style house. Therefore do not hesitate to ask for advice and recommendations for you to make the best choice. As we make different window types – modern windows as well as double frame windows suitable for historic buildings, you will always get the most objective recommendations from us about which window type is the most suitable for your house.

SINGLE FRAME INWARD OPENING GERMAN WINDOWS

We make the so-called “German“ type wooden and wood-aluminium windows and balcony doors. This is a modern window system developed in Germany with great convenience of use, where the windows open inward to the side and from the top for airing. This window type is most common in Estonia when building new houses, this thanks to its convenience of use and simple maintenance.

All windows are made according to the measurements submitted by the Party ordering and the most suitable design. Environmentally friendly water-based paint systems are used as finishing materials – opaque paints as well as transparent paints. Finishing takes place in three stages: impregnating, primer coating and covering with surface paint.

Whether to choose a wooden or aluminium window depends on the design of the building. If it is a wood-aluminium window, the wooden part of the window is protected from the external environment from the outside in its entirety by aluminium profiles. This ensures an especially long lifespan for a wooden window.

The product selection includes the cheaper 78mm frame depth window type REKMAN S-78 (see the pdf brochure HERE) as well as the 90mm frame depth window type REKMAN S-90 corresponding to higher energy requirements (see pdf brochure HERE).

Thanks to its wider frame and casement the REKMAN IV-90 window type fits sealed units with better energy as well as sound insulation indicators, which correspond to the modern high energy saving and sound insulation requirements. Modern design, energy efficiency and convenience of use have found a good mix in this window type.

In addition to a regular window system it is also possible to manufacture windows/balcony doors with larger measurements with reinforced hinges, windows with concealed hinges, windows with electric engines etc.

MSE and MSE-A WINDOWS

Of double frame windows with a more modern design, our product selection includes the aforementioned so-called „Finnish type“ windows i.e. MSE and MSE-A windows.

An MSE window is an inward-inward opening window, which is made according to the traditions and requirements that have developed on the Finnish market. Substantively it is a similar product to the Estonian historical „inward-inward“ opening window type, where the internal as well as external window frame open together – the internal frame opens from the handle and the external frame moves with the internal frame with an intermediate latch. The MSE window used on the Finnish window market differs a little from the window type used in Estonia by the measurements of its frames, see drawing.

MSE-A windows are double frame windows, the main construction and internal frame of which are made of wood, at the same time the external frame is aluminium. The frames also have an aluminium cover for protection from the environment. This is a so-called more modern design of a double frame window.

The better sound insulation with affordable prices can be considered an advantage of the double frame window. To achieve the same sound insulation, more expensive special sealed units need to be used for a „German“ window. At the same time in comparison with the „German“ window the MSE window does not give as great a convenience of use and it is less convenient to maintain.

DECLARATION OF PERFORMANCE MSE-A

Double frame „inward-inward“ windows, are traditional double frame windows, where both window frames open inward.  Single glass is used on the external window frame, sealed unit on the internal window frame according to the wish of the Party ordering. Windows of this type are widely used in the old town and areas of cultural and environmental value or in buildings, where it is wished to maintain the authenticity and historic flavour of the building. Double frame windows also definitely suit new log and country houses, giving the house an authentic look.

An inward-inward wooden window can be made so that both frames – internal as well as external open from a handle autonomously. In such a case it is a traditional design, which has been in use in older buildings. At the same time these windows can also be made with the so-called „Finnish“ type MSE design, where the internal frame opens from the handle and the external frame moves with the internal frame by an intermediate latch.

The selection of the fittings of products is very wide – in addition to industrial hardware we offer various forged fittings, old cremones, hinges with „tips“ etc., which help to create a period authentic general impression, because details are what create the whole.

WOODEN AND WOOD-ALUMINIUM-GLASS FACADES

As a rule the structural unit of Rekman’s wooden and wood-aluminium-glass facades is made from end-jointed pine laminated wood. The cross-section of the wooden frame is chosen dependent on the wish of the Party ordering and on the basis of the necessary load bearing capacity of the specific glass façade and load (for example 50*80-300mm). The wooden frame can be covered by different types of precious wood veneers. The wooden frame is finished weather proof in three stages – impregnating, primer coating and covering with surface paint. If necessary the wooden part can also be stained and varnished or covered by transparent paint.

Facades are glazed analogously to MEK or MEK-A sealed windows with a triple sealed unit from the outside. The standard design is a 54mm thick sealed unit with two thermo-regulating glasses, which ensures a product corresponding to modern energy requirements. Thicker sealed units can also be used if necessary, where special glass is used. The selection of glasses and special glasses used by us is very wide and corresponds to high heat, light, security and sound insulation requirements. With them, the increased special requirements set for the façade can be complied with. In addition self-cleaning glasses are also in the selection.

The cover caps of the façade system are either of wood or aluminium depending on the wooden or wood-aluminium design. In case of a wood-aluminium-glass façade the heat insulated ”0-profile” aluminium façade system frame is attached to the veneer structural unit (with a depth of 7mm for example), which is later covered with an aluminium cover cap. In addition to designs with cover caps it is also possible to use the SG façade system frames without a cover cap, where the external joint is simply siliconised.
