Radiators

Begin to understand this not only designers, but ordinary consumers. Estimated marketers, about 50% of buyers interested primarily designed radiators, and then to their thermal properties. Radiator variety So what do we mean by saying "radiator"? Most of us in answering this question will imagine the familiar cast-iron "accordion." However, to date range of the production increased significantly. Production technology have changed considerably. Materials used in the manufacture of radiators, it has become much more.

In general, modern radiators – they are reliable, safe and cost effective devices that combine both technical and aesthetic functions. A variety of structural solutions, geometric shapes and colors can not leave indifferent even the most demanding customer. The radiator is translated from Latin means "radiant". This is the final point of delivery of heat in our homes and apartments in the complex system of water heating. Hot water from the boiler through pipes goes into the radiator, which supports the premises to the desired temperature. It should be noted that in addition to radiators, there is also a coil. The latter differ from their "colleagues" ways of passage of heated air. He goes to the bottom of the convector, is heated and rises.

Let's start with the convector. As a rule, it is a heating element (steel or copper pipes with steel or aluminum bars), enclosed in cover. Such devices are well-kept pressure, corrosion resistant. In addition to heating with a high degree of glass surfaces or cold walls fit baseboard (height about 100 mm) and underfloor convectors.

Holland Technology

Clinker bricks Clinker in German means 'brick'. Generation of the Russian language 'clinker', that is, brick, brick, – an absurdity, but quite nice. Clinker for 2 centuries. His father – the Dutch. Trying compensate for the absence of natural stone materials, they have started production of clinker – high-density ceramic stone. At the beginning of the xix century was built clinker road, connecting Amsterdam and Haarlem.

From Holland Technology clinker production spread first to neighboring western European countries, and from there to the U.S In Tsarist Russia, too, were plants producing clinker, but their work ended with the arrival of Communists, who, above all, needed cheap construction materials. In Europe, the clinker is used very actively. Given the fact that in recent years increased interest in traditional materials and architectural decisions, it is not surprising that an increasing number of objects is constructed of clinker brick. Building with a representative of clinker facades adorn the streets and contribute to improving the overall appearance building blocks. Another area of application, where the clinker is simply irreplaceable, is a low-rise building of a manor. In this area, the traditional brick hard to find a decent alternative.

With increasing volumes of suburban housing and the increasing share of gentrification in our country clinker purchased and Russian customers. Of course, such a wide scope of application of this material due to its many positive qualities. Distinctive Properties of clinker. The most important feature of the clinker is its frost resistance, ie the ability to withstand the alternating cycles of freezing and thawing without compromising their physical and technical, operational and aesthetic characteristics.

Parquet Flooring

Holders of parquet floors in the apartment, aware that this is one of the best finishes for the floor. Parquet flooring has advantages that other types of flooring it is clearly inferior, and his term of depreciation, depending on the kind of flooring can be more than 50 years, and then the whole century. This ecological material, which will provide the room a natural sound and heat insulation. A large variety of parquet flooring allows you to choose the finish for sex, the most suitable for your interior. Each type of flooring has its own nuances that must be taken into account the right choice.

Of all the types of flooring, parquet is the most Long-term, medium term of its operation is 50-60 years, although with proper care it will last more than a hundred years. Raw material for this type of flooring are natural wood beech, ash, oak. Also, trees of non-ferrous minerals: Pears, cherry, maple, and tropical – Merbau, Bamboo, gaovan, and others. For decades, he does not crack and does not creak, keeping the room comfortable and cozy. Parquet can spread a variety of patterns and ornaments, use pictures of curvilinear forms, and thus give him a semblance of artistic parquet. In addition, the parquet is easy to update, conducted the procedure of grinding and sanding (ie delete gamy the top layer of paint and re-varnish), after which the floor looks like new. Over the lifetime of inlaid floor coverings, you can repeatedly carry out these procedures. Solid wood boards are perfect for individual and representative interiors.

They combine quality and presentable. In the aspect of strength of solid boards are on a par with parquet. Made from whole, rather than plywood, they are well cope with the load in rooms with high traffic. From flooring solid wood boards with extremely large size bars, which greatly facilitates the process of laying. Tree species used for making this type of flooring, beautifully withstand external influences. Thus, the board of ash have increased resistance to distortion, and the board of oak differ resistant to rot, and Q lot of time. Also, solid wood boards are made from walnut, teak, beech, merbau, each breed is characterized by distinctive colors, textures and colors. Providing soundproof room and low heat, it absorbs excess moisture, which saved a microclimate in your home. It is likely the best form of an expensive parquet flooring, but it is quite legitimate long operation and unique appearance. Facing a massive replacement board is a board hardwood that relate to the average cost to the class of parquet flooring. The procedure for laying parquet and boards is much easier, and in this it is clearly superior to parquet. Technology laying parquet such simple and clear, they are sold in finished form, ie, sanded and lacquered. So for a short period of time Your room will be a quality and reliable floor that perfectly resists mechanical disturbances, while maintaining color and texture of wood. However, due to the fact that the layer of wood parquet is more subtle, then life is a shorter period of time – about 8 – 10 years. During this time you can make the process of sanding more than two times.

Winter Adhesive

The second reason is similar to the first, with the difference that it is not about the properties of the material and the properties of surfaces, with whom he has contact. Because of their physical condition also depends on temperature and humidity environment. For example, according to the instructions of most manufacturers of shingles, it can not be laid at temperatures below +5 C. The fact that the shingles (a sheet with several tiled tiles) has on the one hand adhesive layer, which provides a better grip with wooden base or spread out over its surface lining the carpet. The technology provides that the sun's rays heat the stacked roof and melt the adhesive layer that provides tight grip shingles with the base. In winter, when the sun barely warms, it will not happen, so the roof can quickly lose their properties Waterproof, simply put – will start leaking. Similar conditions (temperature not lower than +5 C) required for the installation of wet front.

His technique involves fixing of insulation material to the wall surface with adhesive and mechanical connectors for followed by laying on top of it plaster and synthetic materials. Binder joining the front plate with a base at low temperature begins to dry and crumble. "To adapt a binding agent for the Winter conditions it is sometimes added to salt, – says Igor Latyshev, director of the Group "Staff", working in the field of production and sales of materials for mounting and wall cladding coatings.
