insulating glasswith built-in shutter


01 Understand the built-in blinds of insulating glass

1. What is the built-in shutter of insulating glass:

In simple terms, the difference from other doors and windows is the glass. Installing the aluminum venetian blind in the hollow cavity of the insulating glass becomes the built-in venetian blind of the insulating glass. And because the glass becomes thicker with the curtain, the pressure line is correspondingly narrowed.

2. The working principle of the hollow glass built-in blinds:

The blades are folded and unfolded manually, magnetically or electrically, so as to realize the lighting and sunshade functions of the central venetian blind. The opening method of the built-in venetian blind is the same as that of the external venetian blind, which can be adjusted up and down, and the blades can be opened and closed for dimming.

3. Application scenarios of hollow glass built-in blinds:

At present, there is a trend in Shanghai and other places to use insulating glass built-in shutters as the standard configuration of bedroom doors and windows. However, most of the local market development and awareness are relatively low, and the unit price is higher than consumer expectations.

No matter it is internal or external venetian blinds, blackout blinds, or curtains, the functions of all curtains are shading, privacy and beauty. Although the color of the louvers of the built-in blinds can be selected appropriately, it is far less diverse than the curtains, so from the perspective of aesthetics, it is not Great for bedroom, living room. Only in kitchens, bathrooms, cloakrooms, etc., can it take advantage of its simplicity and its own "light and shadow mottled" special effects

Therefore, from the perspective of giving full play to its greatest advantages and cost performance, Baydee thinks:

It is not necessary to replace the hollow glass built-in shutters when replacing doors and windows in the whole house; it is most suitable for bathrooms and kitchens.

02 Problems with built-in blinds in insulating glass

Above, Baydee is talking about its advantages of easy care without cleaning, simplicity and special effects. So here are 3 existing problems:

Price: If you want merchants to upgrade ordinary doors and windows to built-in shutters, basically you need to add a few hundred yuan per square meter, which is still a bit expensive. Therefore, at present, it can really be said that it is only suitable for people with small obsessive-compulsive disorder, people with small cleanliness, and people who pay special attention to decoration details.

Appearance: The hollow glass built-in blinds have a little difference in appearance: there are crosspieces around the window frame, which slightly reduces the area occupied by the glass.

Maintenance problem: This is also a problem that needs to be considered. Although the service life of the built-in blinds is much longer than that of the external blinds, once a problem occurs, it will be troublesome to repair. The glass needs to be removed for repair or replaced directly.

Therefore, whether it is a magnetic buckle or a motor, when purchasing, you need to pay attention to only buying products from reliable manufacturers, and negotiate after-sales issues.

03 Selection skills of bathroom doors and windows

1. Sliding window is recommended for window type

Bathroom windows have the same functional requirements as those in kitchens, balconies and other places: high frequency of use, long opening time, and low requirements for sealing, waterproofing and sound insulation. Therefore, generally speaking, the recommended order for installing window types is sliding window > casement window.

However, when the window opening of the toilet at home is small (the opening is small, sliding windows cannot be used), or when the noise problem is emphasized (the toilet is close to the room, and there is noise), casement windows are more suitable.

2. Different window installation positions can be selected according to different window sill widths.

The window sill is wide enough, and the window should be installed as far outside as possible, so that toiletries can be placed on the window sill in the future; when the window sill is too narrow, the window should be installed protruding inward (flat with the wall brick).

Take an example of a narrow window sill: the width of a casement window frame is generally 5-7 cm, and the width of a sliding window frame is about 8 cm. If the window sill in the bathroom is only 12 cm wide, then Baydee recommends that the window frame come in about 2 cm deeper than the wall during installation, so that when the wall tiles are pasted, the wall tiles are flush with the inner surface of the window frame, eliminating the trouble of turning and closing the tiles .

3. The highest point of the window should be lower than the height of the ceiling.

If the bathroom opening is too high and the ceiling height is not considered when designing doors and windows, it is likely that the positional relationship between the window and the ceiling is difficult to coordinate (the ceiling covers the window or the ceiling is lower than the opening). In this case, the gap between the ceiling and the window frame may be left. There are sequelae such as seam infestation, poor installation of screen windows, and difficult maintenance.

4. The height of the horizon corresponds to the position of the window handle

Whether the handle position is appropriate or not determines the window opening experience to a certain extent. The handle position is not fixed. The correct handle position should be determined by the height of the owner who often opens the window at home:

When measuring the size of doors and windows, call the owner who often opens the window at home to simulate the daily window opening situation: stand at the window opening position, with the hand level slightly upward, and do several consecutive window opening positions;

At the same time, consider the configuration of the ground when decorating the home. For example: if you measure that the height of the comfortable handle is 1.5 m from the ground, this data should be the distance from the handle to the ground after the floor tiles in your bathroom are pasted.

Because when the size of the doors and windows is measured, the ground decoration has not yet been completed. Therefore, to calculate the operating height of the handle, the finished height of the ground must also be added, for example, the thickness of conventional floor tiles is 5 cm, and the thickness of floor heating is 8-10 cm.

Well, knowing these details and tips, there is basically no need to worry about using the doors and windows of the bathroom in the future!
