Europe Energy

Saturday, September 16th, 2023

Course on energy conservation was adopted in Russia for more than one and a half years ago. But one thing – put the task, and quite another – to perform it. In practice, until all confined to isolated local initiatives. Only a small portion of the population and individual businessmen from their own experience to assess the benefits of energy conservation. In general, despite all the calls in our country continues uncontrolled use of energy resources. Thus, efficiency of domestic heating today, three times lower than, for example, in Denmark, the climatic conditions which are very close to Russia.

What is the cause of this situation? Counter to the mentality of traditionally low energy prices (mainly gas), operating on the Russian domestic market, make heat and electricity is much cheaper for consumers than, for example, in Europe and most cis countries. In 2008, difference in the price of gas was more than 600%. Therefore, we allow ourselves to even think about energy conservation. The result is obvious: according to experts, Russia today is wasting at least 20% of the total energy of consumption. In this case, the main losses occur in the residential sector, where they reach 40-70%, while the worldwide norm is 7-8%.

So, for Russia has long been customary regulation of temperature in the apartments by opening air vents in the freezing cold. Not to mention the constant "floating" heating plants. But consumers simply do not notice, because paying a fixed amount each month regardless of actual costs and heat loss.

On the same wavelength A common mistake when installing metal – not just the wrong choice of screws, but and misuse of their attachment. There are two mounting options: up or down wave. The experts strongly recommended that you use the second method. Otherwise, there may be "complications". According to the experts Research and Production Center "Roof" (Samara), "Profile stiffness of metal on top of the wave is not enough for a tight clamping washer and the substrate. In addition, the upper wave has a sharp radius, where there is no convenient place for landfall. Tightened with a screwdriver screw squeezes metal roofing, in violation of decorative profile properties. Another serious drawback of fixing up the waves is the inability to most reliable attachment.

One result of this error is noise caused by metal tile in strong winds due to incomplete adjacency. By the way, at the end of 3 months after installation should be perform broaching screws: as any attachment to the tree, it can weaken. The roof also included most of metal on the roof of "mount", and various accessories. They also, like metal sheets, can not mounted back to back. Typically, the length of the overlap is not less than 100 mm and 200 mm, inclined to the horizontal accessories (they still require additional waterproofing in the form of sealant). Particularly well suited for installation snow guard. Because he is under considerable stress, his mount is happening in each wave, and under the metal roofing at fixing is enclosed bars. "To made the roof looked a whole, we offers a comprehensive delivery.

In this case, metal tile, along with the customer will receive all the necessary elements – gutter system, caps, snow guard, stairs, etc. In order to facilitate the assembly of the roof, also provides detailed instructions and assembly plans "- says na Miroshnikov. In any case, you must comply with technology provided by the manufacturer of metal, as He recommends the use and implements exactly the accessories, which together with the sheets would make long-lasting roof. Having on hand all necessary instructions, a homeowner could theoretically make installation and self-participation, although professionals has never stopped anyone. Whatever it was, but know the basics of installing metal roofing should be to supervise the work of craftsmen employed on time anticipating possible oversights and omissions. Elena Grishina 1 2

Current Conditions

Construction This word is a constant guide throughout the life of mankind. Very often we think that's a long construction period, and at times it seems that has not made a repair, and will soon begin perform next. But a stubborn statistic asserts that humanity does not repair very much. On average, once every few years and the surface about once a decade scale. Why do togdatakie thought as whitewashing or facing materials will stimulate our memory? It's simple with the union of stereotypes in people's consciousness about ustakanilos that repairing – it is long and tedious affair.

Whitewash the ceiling, painted walls and other mass repair operations for many weeks with WinCE appeared in our memories due to the fact that in times of scarcity people have been doing repair of substandard materials. Wallpapering that exploded directly in moment of the , demanded that the men of high ability and health. A whitewash the ceiling, which is due to insufficient lime was embodied in a kind of extreme sports show 'smooth out wrinkles on the ceiling', the same whitewashed walls drove a great spot to be had from time to time to hide from other people's Turkish carpet or, at worst, a wardrobe with mezzanines. While whitening was a little convenient not only for the home repair, and also for holiday affairs. Happened that the whitewashing of trees to be 'bearish' service in the morning when a tree filled up people of color in May and autumn, not the goods were collected, but only debris swept from the track. Times have changed for the better. And today, the ordinary citizen is available the highest quality of construction technology, reinforced by strong high-quality and most importantly, is not harmful to the life of components.

It is currently painted wallpaper provides opportunity not only to receive negative emotions, and also does not take so much time and bring joy. In trading before much quality everywhere applicable whitewash, suitable for whitewashing the ceilings, walls and for late whitewashing trees. And fall is the opportunity to enjoy fruit picking, and not just collect bad yellowed foliage. In recent years, scientific advances allowed to make a major breakthrough in creating locks and paints, which allows you to quickly carry out painting the walls, which will be a long time to lose its kachastvo and please people. In addition, to date there is no shortage of material. After all, before latex paint was a sign of luxury, but today – it's not expensive for all of the distinctive 'chip' room design. After all, if whitewashing the walls and ceiling, and painted wallpaper for us are commonplace, then paint the ceiling and walls water-based paint is part of modern design, which was used in conjunction with the wall covering, you can create something new that will help you to feel like a pioneer, and your guests will be able to fully assess your originality. Just as easy today to become an inhabitant of the African savannah or erepolnenogo moisture equatorial forest with the air conditioner, the scenery to the working regimes which you wish to make a modern cladding materials with which it is possible to create an unusual cladding.

General Director Building

In addition, if the building requires renovation, all actions associated with it, the entrepreneur will need to coordinate with the regional government protection of monuments. And this is only the beginning! The facade of the monument of architecture – a work of art that you want keep intact. And it is this feature is the first obstacle to its transformation into a store. Even the ordinary sign can not be hanged without a special permit from state authorities. To obtaining necessary using Photoshop or drawings to illustrate how the facade will look with new elements. And only after those changes will approve architectural and planning control, can accommodate sign.

"The set of constraints concerns the establishment of shop windows, night illumination of the facade. Therefore difficult to sustain such a design shop in the same corporate style and it does not disrupt the historic architectural ensemble. However, this condition is mainly with the concurrence of the project in the state bodies responsible for the protection of monuments ", – says Alexey Nikitin, General Director of Quasar-2000 (an integrated approach to solving problems of the construction, repair and design). The expert notices that the agreement could prevent the usual attributes of a modern building: air conditioning, new windows and doors. So we have to try to fill out the "under vintage-art products. "Today there are many solutions that can help you replace the window construction in a historic building without altering its appearance, – says Rafik Alekperov Head of Customer Group propleks (one of the founders of the Russian market of pvc profiles).

Venice Glass

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Among other interesting techniques – fusing, translated to English means "sticking" (this technology for creating stained glass, from ancient times known in Venice). "In the West, the situation of this material now considered very relevant and modern – says the designer, an expert on glass Andrei Vinogradov. – Made from him furniture and accessories give the room a feeling of lightness, airiness and elegance – a visually easy Some pieces of furniture that are necessary, but cumbersome. And the trinkets and souvenirs winning look like in the small and in the spacious room. In addition, the glass perfectly with any style – from classical and art deco to contemporary pop-art or high-tech. " Transparent furniture becomes "invisible": in addition to tables, appear transparent shelves and shelves for books. Standing on their computer or a book as if hanging in the air, and all design on the wheels can move easily in a convenient direction, changing environment. "In the fashion and fancy shapes and original designs – says the designer-decorator Eugene Lusin.

– For example, a table in the form chamomile or the letters S, oblong-bench "clip", glass boxes, chairs, resembling the outlines of the human body, head of the bed, in the technique of stained glass brass (fragments of colored glass inserted into the metal profile), counter tops of the decorative pieces that mimic broken glass. " Again come into fashion stained glass windows of stained glass – a favorite piece of contemporary modern now. Partitions and screens, doors and fireplace screens, in color and structure, the figure corresponding to the overall style of the environment, while at the same time become completely independent decorative elements. "Glass has always considered to be very fragile and unreliable material – the same modern technology changed our perception of it "- says the designer, glass painter Anna Anelovich. – Today we think nothing of sitting on the curved glass sheet to keep clothes in a glass cabinet, or sleep on the bed with a glass catwalk ". The integration of modern production facilities with the latest processing technology allows to realize the most daring design plans. They reject the established stereotypes fragility and unreliability of the glass. Its use in the interior – it is the luxury that can afford a business owner to demonstrate a refined taste and commitment to fashion. Svetlana Topal, an expert of "Astarte prestige"

Road Surfaces

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Today the state of road surfaces can be easily assessed as unsatisfactory. The reason – a constant load and the residual strain on it. All this is due to an increased number of vehicles, and hence increase in traffic flow. The way out of this situation can use geogrid – a pledge that the roadbed will last much longer, besides its replacement and repairs will cost much less. Thus, highlighted the main benefits of using geogrids to create pavement: Increased strength of the coating. Geogrid increases the coefficient of friction loose material, which it is formed. Increasing the bending stiffness of the road 'clothing'.

Reducing the strain coverage at lower levels ground cover by increasing the load on the canvas. Stable mounting surface on the side with loose material. Stability of the road track to , despite the densities of land cover. Based on the above-mentioned advantages, we can conclude that the geogrid reinforced surface – it increased by 50% structural strength. In addition, the intended use of geogrid to reinforce a building material – it's layers, which are becoming much stronger. Even serious loads do not cause the roadway strain.

Due to their properties, geogrid opposes the formation of a rut in the road surface. Before designing the surface, which involves the use of a geogrid, one must consider aesthetic of the objects as indicators with a link with the environmental situation and regulations concerning environmental protection. In addition, it is important to take into account the main parameters its possible changes. Incorporation of these factors will help to choose the right geogrid for the area and tasks. On the effectiveness of the drainage structure, which is the roadbed, and influence established diversions watercourses. To stabilize the river channels, as well as to fill the sections of geogrid, materials of any type, which guarantee the fulfillment of their tasks. Modern technology allows guaranteed to save money and ensure the desired result in the construction of various surfaces.

Galvanized Welded Wire Mesh (sstsp): Manufacturing Technology, The Advantages

Monday, May 26th, 2014

Over the past few decades, the zinc coating has shown high consumer qualities and it became one of the most common methods of protection against corrosion of metal mesh. High protective (Corrosion) properties of this coating due to the fact that most occurring corrosion-active media (in the industrial and marine atmosphere, in fresh and salt water) is a zinc anode, almost all of the applicable Metals. Because of this, zinc is dissolved in these media, and therefore not subject to destruction unless it contains a layer of zinc. Therefore, the life of galvanized mesh, even in conditions of increased aggressiveness may up to 30 years, which at times reduces the cost of its operation and maintenance. To date, there are five technologies corrosion protection of metal, each of which has its positive and negative sides. We concentrate on the method of hot-dip galvanizing is the most common in the manufacture of welded galvanized mesh.

This is largely due to high productivity and efficiency of the technology, and high consumer demand for this type of dip. The process of applying zinc coatings "hot" method on the metal grid is composed of six agreed stages. When hot dip galvanizing requires that welded wire mesh was perfectly clean until immersion in molten zinc, it is only "metal clean" surfaces can react with each other. Therefore, the six-step dip "hot" way, five of them are preparatory "cleansing" phase: 1) Phase degrease the surface of any metal product to be galvanized to a greater or lesser extent, contaminated oils and fats.

Whitewashed Ceilings

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

However, if the ceiling was originally whitewashed, will have to clear it from the whitewash, which requires a lot of time. One has only to pay close attention to use glue. Although, in theory, you can use almost any of his views, ranging from pva, better yet, choose Special recommended by the manufacturer of. However, this solution still is an intermediate option. Tile is not too strong and after a couple of years may begin to fall off.

A good solution to the problem of office "Sky" are suspended ceilings (eg, Extenzo). This is a fairly simple design, consisting of a special cage (baguette) and a thin vinyl film. However, the apparent simplicity hides the-art technology and materials – in fact a very durable material not only withstands up to 10 liters of water per square meter of surface (a problem of leakage is solved!), but also very aesthetic look. During the installation of stretch ceiling specialists with special heat guns heat the vinyl sheet and fill with it in prints. As the cooling of the material shrinks, pulling and forming a perfectly flat surface.

If necessary, such a ceiling can be installed special lamps. The whole operation, not counting measurement and manufacturing takes several hours. Manufacturers guarantee the reliability of structural components and joints for 10 years. There was widespread and suspended ceilings. According to experts, their considerable advantage – system solutions: modules, which include supporting structures and panels, can solve a lot of office problems, from lighting and finishing deployment of communications.
