Roto Frank AG, with its historical course of seventy plus years, has connected its name with fittings of tilt and turn doors and windows, because its founder Willhelm Frank presented in 1935 the first fitting for tilt and turn doors and windows. During this course, many and innovating, for their time, ideas have been turned into products that have offered solutions for the demands and needs of every era.
Can windows to accumulate energy while contributing to cooling or heating the interior of the buildings? The answer comes from Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, the show Futuris on euronews.
It resembles a conventional container, but is not. This is due to these windows have cover them with special fluids. The outer surface of the window in this way is able to collect sunlight and convert it into energy and the inside of the window contribute to the change of temperature in the container.
Apart from the undeniable practical value, the sunshade contribute significantly to the aesthetics of the building and, in particular, are among the most effective "mechanisms" to reduce energy consumption.
We’ve touched on what a passive house is, the Passivhaus Standard and why we’re a-bloggin’. We’ve shared our research process with you as honestly as we could, much to the horror of some of our engineer friends out there – but we’re honest about how we approached figuring out where to start on our path. Consumer reality is often not as ‘organized’ as the industry experts might hope, and we feel it’s important to be true to our reality.
One of our greatest challenges of our time is sustainable development that emphasizes sustainable construction with emphasis on energy saving and application of renewable energy technologies in the built environment. The issue gets serious dimensions when we are in an energy crisis. Proceedings of the energy crisis we are going through periods where there is deliberate or not reducing the supply of primary energy form.
The old building of the Port Authority (Port Authority), New York stands in Manhattan, over the port of the American metropolis. The building belongs now, Google and the last two years renovated. What stands out, so for someone who looks from the outside, and for someone to come in for a meeting, it is the Greek epinoiseos and construction frames. This is frames of Alumil - Mylonas, the basic skeleton of which is manufactured at the company's factory in the Industrial Area of Kilkis and their assembly is done in the Alumil Fabrication facilities, its subsidiary in the US.
The Greek buildings appears to be extremely wasteful in their majority. According to surveys absorb one third of the energy consumed annually in our country and emit into the atmosphere 45% of total carbon dioxide.
The construction sector is one of the fastest growing sectors worldwide. An important objective for the construction sector is the construction of buildings with minimal environmental impact and energy consumption, which is one of the most important issues in the life of a building and for this reason the low-consumption buildings have become an important field of research.
