High-level security is standard
All Kastrup products incorporate burglar-resistant details and solutions. If further security is needed, our tests in accredited institutes have resulted in solutions that meet even stricter requirements in burglary security and tightness. Our windows and doors in the INVI series, the KASTRUP ENERGY series, front doors with glass panels and a wide ranch of panelled doors are all PAS24 certified.
The KASTRUP ENERGY windows feature 15mm tempered restrictor hooks, spring recoil fastening, groove fastening on hinges and adjustable secure strike plates as standard. The patio doors and front doors are made with 20mm restrictor hooks, a latch and a secure strike plate as standard. This makes it virtually impossible to destroy the brackets from the outside. The construction of the INVI series, in which the strike plate is protected way inside, provides a high level of security itself. The espagnolettes with multiple mushroom bolts around the frame and the corners make it very difficult to break the closing mechanisms from the outside. Moreover, the glass in the INVI series is always glued, making it very time-consuming for a burglar to remove the glass from the window.
In addition to the basic security package of Kastrup’s products, you can always opt for an advanced security package with lockable handles, electronic door locking, a PAS24 security package or various types of safety glass, which can also be glued in the element.
Laminated glass minimises the risk of a break-in. Laminated glass has a film coating between the panes, which means the pane stays together in the event of breakage. Kastrup also takes into account the safety of the family in other ways than against burglary. We offer childproof window locks or tempered glass to protect against personal injury in the event of glass breakage. Tempered glass is stronger than ordinary glass in the event of pressure loads or thermal stresses. Should tempered glass break, it granulates into very small, harmless pieces that do not cut. Kastrup can combine laminated and tempered panes in the same glass, also together with different types of patterned glass and sun-protection glass.
The right window installation
At Kastrup Windows, we know that the proper installation of our windows and doors is crucial when it comes to getting the best out of our products. Hence, Kastrup collaborates closely with our distribution partners, who are constantly given training and courses on our products and installation instructions.
That way, we ensure that there is top quality in the entire chain from delivery and installation to subsequent services, guaranteeing customer satisfaction.
Goodbye to unnecessary noise
Constant noise is annoying and can lead to health problems. Noise from the street, traffic, construction sites or neighbours has an increasingly larger impact on our everyday lives. The noise level in apartments and homes should not exceed 30dB.
Kastrup is an expert when it comes to reducing noise and we take this into account in our products. In a building with sound insulation requirements, it is important for windows and doors to comply with the requested sound requirements.
Kastrup offers a wide range of sound solutions – from different kinds of soundproof glass to bespoke noise reduction windows. In addition to soundproof glass and bespoke solutions, the KASTRUP ENERGY series gives you the option of a third seal, which provides even better sound insulation, heat insulation and watertightness. The INVI series has three seals as standard and standard glued glass also ensures better sound insulation.
Kastrup’s entrance doors can also make a positive impact on noise insulation. The thicker the door panels, the better the sound insulation. Kastrup’s wood/aluminium doors with 76mm-thick panels and two seals in the top and side frame guarantee particularly good noise insulation.
Housing projects located in areas with heavy traffic place even higher demands on noise insulation. Over the past years, Kastrup has gained extensive expertise in tackling the requirements for this type of project. With our bespoke noise reduction windows, we can reduce noise all the way down to 26dB. The noise reduction window is available in the same design as our KASTRUP ENERGY- and INVI series and they cut out noise, even when the window is open for fresh air. Kastrup also works with glass balustrades and inward opening windows and doors to achieve specific demands on sound insulation.
When the cold weather sets in, windows should insulate the room and take advantage of the warmth from any sun we are lucky to get. Windows should enhance our quality of life and comfort.
We often find that people sitting next to a loose window move further into the room to avoid cold and draughts. A single radiator next to the wall cannot counteract this feeling.
For the best possible feeling, it is important for the temperature difference between the air in the room and the surface temperature of the window not to be too big. A temperature of 18°C on the windows and 20°C in the room is more comfortable than a temperature of 15°C on the window and 24°C in the room. This means that the temperature difference between window and rooms should not exceed 2°C.
Windows should emit as little cold as possible. For the best possible comfort, it is important to be able to rely on the insulating properties of windows. Kastrup offers windows that guarantee you the greatest comfort. The thermal insulation values of the INVI series and the triple glazed KASTRUP ENERGY series are some of the best in the industry and ensure optimum comfort in your living room.
