They let in natural light, allow for a view, and how you interact with the outdoors. If at all possible orientate your living areas towards the north. Then add large windows to get the best natural light with the biggest amount of solar heat gain in ..

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 Paarhammer

The trend for even better energy efficient buildings led Paarhammer to ever more research and development. And it seems clients appreciate it. While a large part of the window industry is still struggling to accommodate double glazing – often into existing frames which are not made to carry the extra weight – clients want more. Just in the last few months a number of orders placed at Paarhammer specified that even triple glazing wit ..

New barrier-free door threshold

Monday, February 04, 2019 Paarhammer

External hinged doors with a level threshold that stop drafts would be the ideal in many situations. No door draft stoppers - or fabric door snakes - just a perfect level seal to keep out drafts, noise and water. This is now possible with the new magnetic threshold. How does it work? When the door is closed, 2 double seals with silicone contact in the threshold are automatically attracted to the 2 magnetic strips at the bottom of th ..

Correct Ventilation and Energy Efficiency

Thursday, June 07, 2018 Paarhammer

Well sealed windows and high energy glazing save energy and provide a comfortable living environment – and that’s how the danger of mould growth increases. This seeming contrast is easy to explain. During the normal use of a living space large amounts of steam are released, e.g. through cooking, washing, showering or washing dishes. Also every human dispenses about ½ litre of water through the skin and even more than 1 litre through b ..
