Thermal insulating monobloc

Monobloc fixtures

The windows are the least insulating parts of the building. For this reason i are often used monobloc windowsprefabricated and self-supporting systems, which give perfect thermal and acoustic insulation.

From the ease of installation and low cost, i prefabricated monoblocks join masonry and window frame. If the installation does not take place correctly there is the possibility that they will be created thermal bridgesareas where there are discontinuity which allow water and air to enter.

The insulating monobloc consisting of insulating sides, under-bench and roller shutter box.
These elements are assembled to create a single piece to be inserted into the hole in the window and thus act as both thermal and acoustic insulation.

Monobloc windows constituent elements

The monoblocks for insulated windows are characterized by different elements:

  • Prefabricated box: highly resistant to any type of finish;
  • Celino insulated: component that optimizes thermal and acoustic insulation;
  • Motor: to move the blackout system;
  • Side insulating shoulders: to eliminate thermal bridges;
  • Blackout system: sunshades or roller shutters;
  • Under-bench.

Il insulated monobloc it can be of different types according to the size of the window and the chosen darkening system.

Monobloc windows and doors as they are assembled

The installation of insulated monoblocs for doors and windows is very simple. At first they assemble the three components, then the monobloc is inserted in the window hole and sealed using polyurethane foam e cement mortar. All this takes place in just under an hour.

Depending on the needs, it is also possible to choose monobloc windows with roller shutter or monobloc windows with roller shutters.
It is necessary for the laying to take place perfectly donerelying on specialized companies to avoid infiltration problems.

Monobloc window why choose it

Thermal insulating monoblocks for windows are a perfect solution for to limit the thermoacoustic dispersion of the rooms e to reduce thermal bridges as much as possible.
Given their continuous evolution, there are high-performance models on the market capable of increasing performance after installation.

One can be inserted inside the monobloc structure controlled mechanical ventilation (VMC) such as to make it more effective and capable of improving the well-being of the home.

Monobloc insulated windows efficiency

In order for the performance to be high, the insulating monobloc it has to perform some tasks.

  • It must be able to house any type of window without compromising the insulation;
  • Installation must be simple and such as to ensure the characteristics over time;
  • The materials with which the monobloc is made must be modern e performers;
  • Attention must also be paid to the construction details.

On the one hand, the insulated monobloc limit heat dispersion, on the other hand, is not always able to solve the problem of humidity.

It is therefore a good idea combine the monobloc window with a thermal insulation system or, in the case of high humidity, a controlled mechanical ventilation system can be inserted.

Monobloc insulated fixtures: what are the thermal bridges

A brief digression to make is in regards to thermal bridges.
In environments where they are present discontinuitylinked to the geometry of the windows or to the type of material used, areas are created in which the dispersion of heat is facilitated.

These areas, called thermal bridges, produce an increase in energy consumption. The monobloc windows they work together to ensure thermal insulation by preventing their creation.

Monobloc fixtures advantages and disadvantages

Insulated monobloc windows have numerous advantages.
Let’s go and see them in detail.

  • The first of all is theelimination of thermal bridgesthanks to the use of heat-insulating materials;
  • Monobloc fixtures lead to a considerable savings on your bill;
  • It is possible to access tax concessions for improving the energy performance of the building;
  • They improve the aesthetic aspect by reducing the size of the frame given the integration of the box;
  • They reduce the noise level with a consequent increase in internal acoustic well-being;
  • They have one strong hold to wind and rain;
  • I’m very versatilein fact on the market there are different finishes and types;
  • Installation and maintenance are very simple;
  • It is also possible to apply them to armored doors.

In addition to the advantages mentioned above, it is also good to shed some light on the cons.

  • You have to pay particular attention to the insulation of the box, to avoid heat dispersion;
  • A work not carried out in a workmanlike manner can affect correct insulation;
  • If the monobloc does not fit correctly in the window compartment, it is possible that infiltrations are created.

Insulated monoblocks for price windows

The prices of thermal insulating monoblocks vary according to the type of material used.

For models in PVC the cost is around 250 €/mqfor monoblocs in aluminum with thermal break we talk about 300 €/mqwhile for models in wood and aluminum the price goes up to 450 €/mq.

For an optimal choice you will have to contact specialized personnel who will be able to find the model suitable for individual needs.

Production of monobloc window frames

The company Alpac proposes a type of monobloc that ensures ease of installation and high thermal and acoustic insulation.
The Alpac monoblock Presystem it is also considered a cutting-edge product for buildings NZEB (near zero energy building).

In extruded polystyreneis perfectly versatile and insulating and allows the creation of a window opening with high energy performance.
The monobloc, with lower costs and greater customization, can be equipped with roller shutters in different materials such as to ensure extreme robustness.

Monobloc window with roller shutter

The company’s monoblock Green Blok it is an ideal solution for a perfect insulation of the window hole.

Consisting of three elements, the heat-insulating box, the insulated shoulders and the insulated under-bench with thermal break, the Green Blok monobloc system allows a speeding up of shutter speed and a consequent one decrease costs.
