WHAT IS I-TEC CORE TECHNOLOGY?
I-Tec Core Technology is a new and innovative technology that is exclusive to Internorm windows. This technology makes the strength of the wood unrivalled. It is consequently, used to design windows that offer more stability, resistance and individuality.
Using the new I-tec core technology, thin, bonded layers of wood are formed at the core of the window. Thus the windows with this core technology become perfect for highly robust roof beams and joists constructions.
The Inner Mechanisms :
This innovative technology of the wood is more resilient and resistant to moisture, as well as being exceptionally solid. The high-tech material is sustainable from the outset and enables larger dimensions thanks to its outstanding load-bearing capacity. Hence, setting new standards in wood construction. That is to say, the wood is stronger than even three-layered bonded spruce and withstands heavy loads where slim cross-sections are required. The multi-layered construction and impregnation make the wood protected against moisture and remains dimensionally stable.
Despite having an aesthetically slim frame, the I-tec core performs all of the window's static functions. The unlimited selection of wood renders this technology available in many different types of wood — whatever be the strength. This in turn, unfolds a beautiful range of solid internal timber finishes to compliment the interior design alongside an extensive range of colors and finishes for the external aluminum frame. More importantly, the narrow view of the frame brings more light indoors.
The I-tec core windows are compatible with all standard fittings. These fittings are fixed within the core and protected against tannic acid.
Added advantages of I-Tec Core Technology:
The I-tec core window frame gives increased structural strength hence, adding better resistance to humidity, eliminating warping and distortion associated with traditional timber framed products.
Above all, it uses ecological material- sustainable wood from sustainably managed forests and has a PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of forest certification) seal of approval.
Further technical details of I-tec core window technology are below:
Thermal insulation: Uw as low as 0.64 W/(m2K)
Sound reduction: Up to 45 dB
Security: RC1N, RC2
Construction depth: 85 mm
Internorm products HF 410 window and HS 330 lift and slide door use the thin-glued timber layers at their core. Certainly, this makes them exclusive products with i-tec core technology and thereby, become highly stable and suitable for roof beams.
