INFORMATION NOTES

 

  • GLAZING: we are obliged to underline that the supply of high-performance insulating glass, consisting of selective and/or low-emissivity glass panes, may present optical impurities such as points or bubbles more or less visible on the surface with coating. These “optical peculiarities” do not constitute a defect, but belong to the intrinsic characteristics of the glass, in compliance with EN 1279 2018 standards.
  • COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW LIMITS RELATING TO THE SOLAR FACTOR (Ministerial Decree of 26 June 2015): the Ministerial Decree 26/06/15 establishes the minimum energy requirements to be respected, valid also for all glazing components of new constructions and renovation buildings. As indicated by the ministerial decree, windows facing from east to west and passing through the south must comply with the limit of 0.35 (35%) for the value of ggl + sh (gl = glass, sh = shading) as shown in the following table: Fattore solare
  1. The Customer declares to be aware of this restriction and personally assumes the responsibility of protecting the glass panes concerned in such a way, that they comply with this minimum requirement, using screening or shading elements if the technical data of the glazing does not meet the aforementioned requirements (FS <35%).

    The Customer is also requested to pay particular attention to the main causes of thermal shock and / or fracturing in glass, not attributable to Carminati Serramenti, such as damages caused by thermal stress, nickel inclusions, excessive heat concentrations or shadow casts. Finally, in the case where the opening is subject to direct solar irradiance, when using parallel sliding sashes it is a good rule not to keep the door semi-open, but completely open or closed, in order to avoid heat concentrations between the glass panes.

  • WOOD-ALUMINUM PRODUCTS WITH EXTERNAL CLADDING IN ATEX/INOX FINISH: the ATEX/INOX finish, represent an “artisan” product, and as such may present differences in colour due to different light reflections. The above is to be considered a feature of the product and not its defect.
  • LAMINATED TIMBER: only highly selected and qualitative laminated timber is used for the manufacture of Carminati Serramenti products. However, it must be said that perfect uniformity cannot be guaranteed due to the natural characteristics of wood. Any differences are not to be considered a defect, but a confirmation that the material used is certainly wood.
  • TIMBER: all types of supplied timber comply with the UNI-EN 942 standard “timber in joinery – general requirements”. In particular for laminated products, the reference class is J2, for solid wood products the reference class is J30.
  • VARNISH: the warranty on the varnish is the warranty issued by Company ADLER. It varies according to the nature of timber and the type of product. For more information, consult the Adler brochure.
  • WARPING OF LAMINATED TIMBER: laminated timber used in the manufacture of windows, doors and blinds, moves and bends much less than the solid wood, but being made of timber, it is not inert. Consequently, only those deformations that compromise the operating characteristics of the product will be considered a defect.
  • COMBINATION OF ALUMINUM PRODUCTS: several aluminium products with the same METALIZED RAL code may present discrepancies in the nuances.
  • ARCHED WINDOWS AND DOORS KLIMA 92: only for the arched part of KLIMA92 doors and windows, the third gasket on the frame cannot be applied.

The Customer declares to have a perfect knowledge of the Carminati Serramenti General Conditions of Sale. For more information about the maintenance, operation and warranty of our products, see the appropriate section on our website.
