In the era of dynamic technological development, many industries constantly implement new, efficient solutions. Bertrand company is an excellent example of this. In order to consistently ensure the highest possible quality, we employ various complex technologies. One of them is dry static glazing, which involves connecting the wing profileand glass using double-sided adhesive tape. This is our standard for producing products dedicated to the American market.

 

What are the advantages of this method? Firstly, increased stability resulting from the assembly process itself – when the glass is bonded to the profile, it becomes a static element. This allows for the creation of PVC structures with larger dimensions and reinforces the stiffness of arched and inclined constructions.

 

 

– Dry static glazing, unlike the standard method, allows for an increase in the glazing unit by 2 mm, – says Tomasz Budnik, main PVC joinery technologist at Bertrand. – In constructions up to a certain size, using the tape, it is possible to give up steel reinforcements in the wings, directly improving the thermal performance while simultaneously reducing the cost of the window. This method can reduce its weight.

 

Additionally, products made using this method require less adjustment due to the fact that the glazing unit is integrated with the wing. This eliminates the sagging of the wing under the weight of the glass and prevents changes in shape over the years. Such solutions are also practically faultless and represent a long-term investment.

 

 

Dry static glazing technology also offers better thermal parameters due to the presence of additional sealing tape and anti-burglary protection. The glass mounted in this way is more difficult to break. It is important to emphasize that its replacement is still possible without the need to dismantle the entire wing.
