The right choice of the frame

Functionality or aesthetics? Quality or convenience? These are often the questions that are referred to when needed choose the ideal fixture for your home or office. So why can’t you have it all? We at Noval have been working for about 35 years to find the right compromise between these alternatives, satisfying the most diverse needs. Let’s see together some features to take into consideration for the right choice of the frame:

  • Types of opening: Our proposal is hinged or sliding, pivot and book opening. The opening at swing is the most common and opens like a traditional door. The sliding opening allows you to slide the panels on a side track. The pivot opening opens both inwards and outwards. The opening at book is similar to a double leaf opening.
  • Frames: The frames can be made of various materials, but the golden mean is certainly the aluminum one, as light and resistant to corrosion. Furthermore, aluminum is a 100% recyclable material, which it means it can be recycled without losing its properties. The aluminum frames can therefore be considered an environmentally sustainable choice.
  • Shapes of Frames: Frames can have different shapes, such as rectangular, square, arc, or circular. There choice depends on the overall design of your home and your aesthetic preferences.

We remind you that factors such as thermal insulation, acoustic insulation and the safety when choosing the fixtures. Noval is successfully experimenting with the Airgel system in this regard: By using airgel panels inside the windows, it is possible to significantly reduce heat loss and improve the energy efficiency of the building. This results in lower energy consumption for heating or the cooling.

It also has sound absorbing properties which can help reduce noise transmission through the windows. This can help create a quieter environment within the building by isolating it from outside noise unwanted.

The Airgel system

Airgel is an insulating nanotechnology currently known on the global market. Used in NASA shuttles for its incomparable performance, Airgel was introduced for the first time in the window and door sector thanks to Noval, then came to life with a new generation of windows with extreme performance and respect for the fragile ecosystem in which we live.

Among the advantages of Airgel there are certainly the reduction of energy costs and improved thermal comfort. Thanks to the high insulating capacity of airgel, windows and doors that use it can help reduce energy costs in the heating and air conditioning of the building. Better retention of heat or cool inside helps reduce the need to use energy to maintain a comfortable temperature.

Improved thermal comfort: The use of airgel in windows and doors can help create a more comfortable internal environment. By reducing heat transmission through windows and doors, annoying cold areas near windows during the winter and hot areas during the summer are avoided.

This translates into lower energy consumption for heating or cooling. It also has sound-absorbing properties which can help reduce noise transmission through windows and doors. This can help create a quieter environment within the building, isolating it from unwanted external noise.
