PosaClima Renova system: find out how to insulate the roller shutter box
THE ENERGY REQUALIFICATION OF THE SHUTTER COMPARTMENT WINDOW WITHOUT WALL WORKS
To have a good energy result of the compartment where the roller shutter
is rolled up, it is not enough to replace the windows, it is also necessary to pay attention to two very critical and often neglected points: the roller shutter box
and the passing sill
The first element is a real hole that occupies two thirds of the section of the wall, closed towards the inside by a modest inspection cover a few millimeters thick.
The air tightness along the perimeter is only approximate and the belt guide hole where the winding rope passes puts the internal environment of the house in direct contact with the outside, causing drafts, temperature losses and passage of noise.
Also the second element, that is the window sill, is often a single stone slab that joins the inside with the outside without any interruption, configuring itself as a real thermal bridge.
For this reason, when replacing the windows, it is essential to properly insulate the roller shutter box
(both on the front and on the sides) with thermally and acoustically insulating materials, replace the belt guide with an airtight element and cut the marble. Without these precautions, the replacement of the windows alone will not achieve the desired result of energy saving and acoustic insulation and indeed, if the window is of good quality, problems of mold formation may occur on the perimeter of the window that were not visible before.
Also for this reason, ENEA
, in its publication on the energy improvement of the home, puts the insulation of the box in the first place in terms of effectiveness / convenience. However, in the absence of a standardized intervention system, many window and door manufacturers still neglect these problems.
