Wondering how an aluminium-framed window or door is manufactured? What happens in the machining centre? How are aluminium doors milled, reinforced, and machined in the production process? What is the size of glass surfaces that can be produced? And how to assemble a window? These questions are also answered in the show called The Craftsman (Mesterember) that presents the work of the aluminium door and window manufacturer. The recordings were made at the KAV Hungária Kisbér plant and at the site of one of our ongoing projects, the Svábhegy Reformed Church Kindergarten.
The manufacture and installation of aluminium doors and windows would not be possible without excellent professionals. The programme on the M5 television channel called The Craftsman, presents trades to help career choices, and gives an insight into the secrets of manufacturing aluminium doors and windows. At the KAV Kisbér plant, you can learn about the most important physical steps in the production of aluminium doors and windows, from the arrival and unloading of the shipment to storage, the profile cutting of aluminium casing and sash frames, machining processes, the assembly and case-elongation function of the aluminium window case, as well as the composite bonding of frameless sliding doors. The finished aluminium doors and windows will leave for the installation site after a minimum of 48 hours of “rest”. Of course, not all the details of the long shoot were included in the film, so KAV’s sales and customer support work, the technical preparation and survey methods of our engineers in Budapest, the production preparation and individual production organization by engineers in Kisbér were left out, as along with fitting hardware parts, rubber seals and door handles, and wrapping. Getting to know the details and atmosphere of the on-site door and window installation was also postponed to another occasion; there was only the opportunity for a quick look around the building. The program presents the already installed windows in one of KAV’s ongoing projects, the Svábhegy Reformed Church Kindergarten. Here, KAV’s specialists implemented, among other things, special, asymmetrically segmented (both in plan and view) interlocking curtain walls, which contain more than 700 custom angular breaks. The glass for this aluminium curtain wall system was not manufactured in Hungary but abroad, since the glass panels forming the average 5 metre-high glass panes of this curtain wall did not fit into any Hungarian curing oven.
The goal of KAV Hungária is to create trends: our specialists work on the production of special aluminium doors and windows which prove that, with the right expertise, there is a solution for every idea.
