STEP 2 Help

In this section you can do the following:

Resize

First we set the size our window's or door's outer frame by entering the values in millimeters in the two boxes (W for width and H for height).

Here you can also modify the sizes of the selected panes by using the + or - buttons, W or H. To do this, we first select from the model (click on the image) the pane we wish to modify. The pane's image becomes blue. To deselect that pane, we need another click (on the model, to it's left or to it's right).

Pane options:

Windows:

We settle what parts will open and how. To do this we must select on the image the pane we want and then we choose the type of opening from the menu like this:

Simple - means one-plane opening (right to left or reverse) - usually known as "side hung" - after selecting it, the handle is shown with the part you grab on "downwards".

Vertical - means one-plane opening (up-down) - usually used only for ventilation - after selecting it, the handle is shown in horizontal position.

Double - means two-plane opening or "tilt and turn" - usually referred as single and ventilation opening. The handle is show with the part you grab on "upwards".

Option Mobile mullion (overhung) is used when we want both sides (sashes) to open. We select the sash we want to open first then we choose it's opening type, we select the second sash and it's opening type and then we check the "Mobile mullion" option. Now, the handle on the second sash will disappear. Remember that when the first sash opens to the right the second will have to open to the left and vice versa - be careful when you choose a sash's opening type. The application offers the possibility to have tilt and turn (double) opening only on the first sash (the one with the handle), the second one will have available only the single opening option.

Option "Insect screen" is used when we want to add an insect screen to the window. We select the sash we want the screen to be on and we check the "Insect screen" option. The screens we offer are only on hinges, white or brown.

Doors:

Option "Panel". This section is very useful, especially on doors, because we can select which parts of the doors will have panel and which will have glass. To do this we must select, by clicking on the model, the panes we want to modify.

In this category balcony doors are not present. To configure a balcony door, configure it as a window.

When designing doors, opening types and sash widths are very important. The wider the sash profile we choose, the more stable the door will be.

For entrance doors we recommend checking the "3D hinges" and "Aluminium door step" options.

General options:

Here we can select the general characteristics of the model, like this:

There are four types of profiles (for now). They are VEKA Softline 70 mm with 5 chambers, VEKA Softline 82 mm with 7, Gealan S3000 62mm with 5 chambers and Gealan S8000 72 mm with 6 chambers, available in white and wooden imitation foils.

Glass type. Here we select the properties of the insulating glass.

24 mm is the usual thickness of a two-sheet insulating glass. The most used is the Low-e glass that's why you find it on the first position in the list.

32 mm is the usual thickness of a three-sheet insulating glass (triple glazing).

The product's price is show in Euro (VAT included).

After we configured the product we may add it to our shopping (order) cart.

We now have two options: to view our order or choose a new product.

Basically, steps 1 and 2 will repeat.
