The structure of the window

In general, we can say that a window is no more than a glass (or blind) wood frame inserted into a wooden frame. Here also we can distinguish the difference between the installation traditional and the installation current. We’ll not specify details of the profiles of wood jambs, recesses, and seals. Only say that the patterns of wood tend to be stable preferably of conifers or tropical woods. Currently, it more used is the pine and the iroko. Despite the fact that there is a significant amount of timber that can be employed for the manufacture of windows. They were formerly made in French oak, pine and other Woods both hardwoods and conifers.

In the traditional installation was placed a direct ring of wood, with rebates, in work. Then the Carpenter fit the leaves of the window, setting them hardware and finally the flashing.

A framework is placed on the current installation of a window. This frame structures, as in the installation of doors, is smooth in your face inside to receive the frame of the window end. So the wall would provide already showing and mounted in an assembly with window leaves, just as happened with the block door.

This frame is usually a wooden frame shaped by four crossbars and sometimes incorporates other stud or top frame to take the hollow for the blind. Only in the window shutter incorporating.

After installing the frame, frames is when the Carpenter installed the frames of the window on the frame frames, to adjust and to square, the frames can use wedges and tail white or vinyl. We will also use mechanical anchors, as screws that anchor the wall to the frame. It should take into account both the use of the Plumb and the use of the level for the correct installation of the frame.

Once we have anchored the frame to the pre-frame, pass to mount them leaves of the window and adjust them. It is advisable to do this before you fill the joints between the pre-frame and the frame if it is necessary to rectify the position of the barrier for the correct operation of the leaves.

When the blades are adjusted, and the siege is an anchor is a time to remove the excess of wooden wedges and to fill the joints between the pre-frame and the frame. It is ideal to use a material also to have a good performance against moisture and thermal changes. The more common uses foam of polyurethane. We thus leave sealed the whole to prevent the passage of air and water.

Finally, proceed to the installation of them covers or flashing of the window to cover them together of the frame frames with the pre-frames and them together between the wall of work and the frame structures.
