The Window Care System - how it works...
The Window Care System is a sustainable method of repairing windows and external timber without the need to gain access. It is a quality approved system with a 10 year guarantee which also extends the life of the paint cycle from 5 to 7 years.
The Window Care Draught-Proofing System
With decades of use, periodically the traditional sliding sash windows require repairs, general care and maintenance. Typical problems include the following:
- The windows are draughty and rattle
- Allow dust and noise ingress
- Difficult to open the windows
- Requires improvement in security
- Open construction joints
- Rotten cills
- Presence of wood decay on the bottom rails and frame joints
- Requires replacement of sash cords, weights, pulleys, sash lifts and reglazing
- The windows require easing and adjusting
Key benefits of the Window Care Draught-Proofing System
- Prevents draught and rattle
- Reduces noise and dust
- Improves sliding action
- Improves performance and comfort
Window Care Dry Flex RP System
The Window Care Dry Flex RP System is specially designed for exterior application and formulated to provide durable repairs.
Dry Flex system is based on two component expoxy resin which overcome many of the problems associated with the conventional epoxies.
The characteristics of Dry Flex RP are just like wood. It's flexible, has excellent adhesion to wood and can be planed, sawn, drilled, routed, nailed and screwed like wood. It allows the original character of the traditional windows to be retained and can be painted with all types of solvent and water based paints and wood stain. It has a proven record for exterior durability.
Window Care Dry Seal
The Window Care Dry Seal is a durable alternative to Linseed Oil Putty.
Linseed oil putty is widely used for glazing windows and doors. The putty is inherently brittle and generally shrinks away from the glass. The breakdown of putty causes early breakdown of paints and is mainly responsible for open joints and in situ wood decay due to moisture ingress.
The Window Care Dry Seal is an elastic glazing sealant which can be used for puttied windows, bead glazed windows and for perimeter sealing. The Dry Seal is paintable with opaque and translucent wood finishes and is extremely effective against moisture ingress.
In the event of the breakage of glass, Dry Seal is easier to renew compared to the removal/renewal of hardened linseed oil putty. The use of Dry Seal instead of linseed oil putty can help to achieve longer paint durability and contributes towards the prevention of insitu wood decay.
