Our teams of highly trained, experienced and youthful workers have the capacity to execute any amount of work big or small and deliver to the client’s expectation within the given time parameters. These works are evident in our galleries and client testimonies on our web-page.[/headings][singleheading heading=”FAQs”][vc_toggle title=”Why should I use Aluminium instead of steel or wood?” size=”sm”]There are various reasons why aluminium is preferred for windows and doors as a trendy vogue for modern houses and whereas there are also benefits for using steel or wood, we shall entirely look at the strength of aluminium.
Aluminium casements exude a modern and elegant look, one that is expected while giving you all the benefits of modern design windows. The design and accessories that come with most aluminium casements simplify and enhance the performance of the aluminium windows and doors. The Euro-section especially the 3 track profile allows and provides for a perfect sliding mosquito net among other benefits reducing the effects of mosquitoes given Uganda’s location being in the tropical region.
Aluminium is maintenance free, with proper profiles, accessories and glasses being properly applied to the windows and doors, the results are strong highly corrosion resistant casements. You may not need to repaint the windows like steel fabrication since they do non rust because of a layer of aluminium oxide externally applied on aluminium profiles protecting it from air and oxygen which causes oxidation, rust and corrosion.
Sliding casements help in saving spaces and therefore the best option is aluminium because the rolling mechanism is not affected by rust and thick layers of paint applied over time to steel casements therefore they can slide for quite a while without any issues of repair or maintenance.
Like any other raw materials, the inputs for the windows and doors are actually very innocent if well procured. The workmanship rendered into these materials distinguishes a perfect casement from a disfunctional one. Oldvoi Uganda limited boosts of 12 years experience in fabricating these aluminium windows and doors. Our workmanship is excellent grade as is evident on all our projects.
Oldvoi makes affordability of aluminium casements through a manageable payment plan. After issuing a quotation, the client will discuss with the managers about suitable and workable payment plan.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What type of aluminium should I use for my project?” size=”sm”]Currently most newly designed projects are expected to use aluminium windows and doors as initiated by the architects. These profiles give a superior finish or outlook to the projects compared to steel casements and this is largely because of their modern new build up.
Aluminium can be differentiated using many parameters from the type of section that is Euro-section, china and Dubai as they are locally known to gauge, colour, aluminium composition and the[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][headings alignment=”” heading=”OLDVOI GLASS WORKS”]OLDVOI experience in handling glass projects is perfectly reflected in some of our projects. Glass works vary from glass partitions, shower cabinets, glass and mirror, cladding and glass balcony balustrades or balcony rails. Our team also handles bullet proof glass works, sound proof glass, safety glass like tampered, laminated, wired glass, fibre glass and toughened glass and below are some of our projects.[/headings][singleheading heading=”FAQs”][vc_toggle title=”Which type of glass best suits my project?” size=”sm”]Glass is a key component to the finishes of any project casement and great windows and doors require a meticulous choice and application of glass. The choices of glass are very many and this variety makes the decision making process very long, below are some common types before we look at their most suitable application.
Regular/ Float glass. These are the most common glasses available on the market and used on small and medium projects for their availability and affordability. This glass can also be transformed to make such stronger and shock- resistant glasses like laminated glass, bullet proof glass and others. Oldvoi Uganda ltd has the experience to handle and apply the best suitable glass options for the job.
Laminated glass. Modern houses require some more strength and durability, laminated glasses serves the purpose. It’s made by sand wiching two equal pieces of float glass with a thin layer of PVB (polyvinyl Butyral) reins in between the glasses. In case of shattering the float glasses attached to the PVB membrane remain intact hence averting any further form of accident, injury or damage. It’s the most widely recommended since it’s not as costly as other types of safety glasses. Laminated glasses are ideal for;
- Accident prone areas such as bathrooms and kitchens
- Large partitions in offices
- Home casement windows and doors
- Public places like banks, restaurants and malls,
- Street building/ commercial developments
- Bad extreme weather conditions like hurricanes and strong winds
Frosted/ obscured glass. This glass allows light inside the room but actually it’s impossible to see through the glass from the other side. It’s ideal for private areas like washrooms and storage areas.
Tampered glass. This is much stronger glass than the float glass because it goes through another process called tempering after annealing of float glass. Tempered glass is not as flexible as float and laminated glass as it cannot be reduced in size or curved into different shapes. It’s very strong and hard glass compared to the latter but comes in fixed sizes or its custom made to your projects requirements. The glass is safe because it crumbles in small crystal like pieces which are less dangerous and this is ideal for areas like big windows on streets, busy areas.
Sound proof glass. This is designed by double glazing two sheets of laminated or float glass with linear stripe to cover the edges creating an air tight vacuum between the glasses. This can be one with regular application of normal glass or enhanced security performance by using much stronger glasses for the double glazing sheets. Though this does not guarantee complete elimination of external sounds. It’s most effective on high-pitched sounds compared to low- pitched sounds and most applicable in busy areas like hotels and office premises. Sound frequencies are largely absorbed at the first laminated glass and by the time they heat the last PUB layers the sound will be highly reduced and depending on affordability regular float glass may also be applied for the glazing.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Other glass types include;” size=”sm”]Other glass types include;
- Bullet proof glass
- Plastic glass
- Polycarbonate glass
Different projects require and need different types of glasses and many factors may be informing this decision. However Oldvoi Uganda limited tries to bridge the gap between affordability and excellent glass application. Whereas some glasses like the annealed or float glass may be cheaper in the short run, they can cause long term damages, delays, losses and also deprive you of apiece of mind. Our team will advise you on your glass requirements for your project.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][spacing][vc_raw_html]JTVCcGhvdG8tZ2FsbGVyeSUyMGlkJTNEJTIyOTUyMCUyMiU1RA==[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
