In April 2014 in Moscow at the exhibition BILDEX on the stand of the «Interregional institute of a window» Several innovative technological solutions for the window industry were presented. This article will tell you about one innovative design solution for window systems - about the vertical-sliding window made at the St. Petersburg company OKNA VERANDA (Head V. Andreev), Which produces wooden translucent constructions.

Prehistory: On May 22, 2009, at the Ligna 2009 in Hanover, an interesting technical solution for a vertical sliding window on the catwalk was presented at the stand of modern technologies for the window industry.    

However, the opening and closing of this window was carried out only with two hands; The features of the installation of the lifting mechanism were unknown; And in the shaped grooves of lifting were installed seals, as in parallel-sliding constructions. Analyzing the system of securing the seals and fixing them in the grooves, we can conclude, that a technologically complex and painstaking operation was presented, complicated in operation and repair. The review and study of the technical solution gave impetus to the promotion of such a technical solution to the enterprises of the Russian Federation. Many production managers considered it unclaimed at the then market of wooden window systems, due to lack of interest on the part of customers and the possibility of using such an opening system in our country.

When visiting OKNA VERANDA during the inspection, its head Vladimir Andreev was asked: «OKNA VERANDA produces various types of wooden constructions, and whether the firm is able to produce a vertical sliding window?».

«Come back in a week, the window will be», - said head of the company in response.

And exactly one week later the first window was presented ,

made of available materials, as a model for the implementation of a technical solution.

A year later, another version appeared with the use of window fittings ordered from European manufacturers, but this solution was not entirely satisfactory to the creator of the construction.

Step by step a new technical design solution appeared, which made it possible to partially hide the lifting mechanism of the window.

And so, in February 2013, in the process of manufacturing the customer's order, there appeared window designs in the English style for one restaurant in Moscow,

And it was decided to show one of the windows at the next BILDEX exhibition. So, for almost three years a wooden vertical-sliding design of the window was created, which corresponds to all the requirements of the existing normative documents for glued beam structures.

This design, which ensures all the requirements of international standards for window blocks, allows us to produce not only a window made of wood, but also PVC-profile, aluminum, providing the required regulatory requirements for Russian conditions.

The design presented at the exhibition aroused interest among the specialists of the window industry, producers of profile systems and window accessories.

Throughout the entire exhibition forum the head of Veranda company answered questions of a large number of visitors about the design and construction of this window

From this we can conclude about the high interest of both consumers and professionals in the appearance of such a structural innovation, which allows to improve and to develop technological solutions for the window industry in Russia.
