I.C.S.A. Realises high quality windows

The results of our commitment

Using cutting-edge production lines with the experience gained in decades of application to our products, ICSA produces a complete range of elements needed to insulate your home by enhancing its aesthetic value by offering products in a range of desireable styles.

Safe, air-tight, acoustic insulation and durability are guaranteed by numerous tests carried out by research institutes that have issued certificates attesting to the very high level of all our products.

You can check the performance of our window frames below:

Required tests in Italy:

Air permeability

(LAW 10/91 - DM 2 APRIL 98 Legislative Decree 192/2005 and 311/2006)

It is the ability of a closed window to prevent air blasts even when there is wind outside that pushes with some pressure. The test is carried out by applying air on the closed product against its chassis with various pressure classes up to a maximum of 600 Pascal. Depending on the amount of air passing through the doors, a class 1 to 4 is associated, where 1 is the worst class and 4 is the best class.(This classification replaces the old A1-A2-A3).

ICSA test result: Class 4 - maximum level

With a wind at 115 km / h: no smudges, less dust on the windowsills and in the environments, tends to remain clean longer, smells, dust and smog that do not enter home, a more comfortable environment, greater energy savings and A better acoustic insulation.

Waterproofing (DPR 246/93)

It is a test that verifies the ability of a closed door to prevent the passage of water even when outside is the wind that pushes with some pressure. The test is carried out by spraying water on the glass and applying to the closed window against its air chassis with 9 pressure classes expressed in Pascal: 0 - 50 - 100 - 150 - 200 250 - 300 - 450 - 600 Pressure Entering the first drop of water, determines the window holding class. For example, if the first drop of water enters a pressure of 600 Pascal (9th class), the window will be certified in the previous class, ie Class 8 ° ie 450 Pascal (wind at 100km / h). Testing can also be carried out at pressures above 600 Pascal, and then the window will receive class E (exceptional) next to the value of the exceeded pressure. Mode A involves wetting the entire surface with nozzles spraying perpendicularly and is the most severe method.

ICSA test result: Class E (exceptional) from 1050 to 1950 Pascal depending on model

No water infiltration with winds up to 210 km / h and rain all over the surface;No damage on window sills and wooden floors and carpets in front of windows and windows doors, no risk of burring in the lower part of the window.

Resistance to wind loads (DPR 246/93)

This test defines 2 parameters: the ability of a closed window to resist wind blows without falling into the closure points and with which deformations. The test evaluates the mechanical strength of the window, the efficiency of its closures and its ability to withstand deformations. Having a particularly large, certified windshield class 3 trim, is already a good resultbecause it means that it exceeded a 1,600 Pascal pressure corresponding to a wind of 180 km. In class 5 of wind resistance a safety pressure of 3,000 Pascal applies to a wind gust that travels at 280 km / h.It is very difficult for a window to reach this class. At national level, no more than 10% of all windows reach this level. The deformation along the uprightis grouped into three categories:

  • Cat. Frontal arrow less than 1/150
  • Cat B frontal arrow less than 1/200
  • Cat. C frontal arrow less than 1/300

This standard allows you to show the robustness of the door and disables the most speculative solutions.

ICSA test result: Class 5 - maximum mechanical seal

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Category C - minimum frontal deformation

Great robustness and minimal deformation also due to high pressures, excellent wind resistance, no breaks in the closing points, no sudden and uncontrolled opening of the windows, more security for those who live in the house.

Thermal transmittance

(LAW 10/91 - DM 2 APRIL 98 Legislative Decree 192/2005 and 311/2006)

Most of the energy and pollution is dependent on heating and cooling of civil and industrial buildings. From these considerations emerges the need to make energy use more efficient in the construction sector, taking into account that a significant role is covered by the dissipation due to the windows.

Energy dispersion of a building:

  • Windows and ventilation 35%
  • Operating losses of the thermal system 30%
  • Walls, roof, floor 35%

D Lgs No. 311/2006 imposes precise limits on the thermal transmittance of the window and glass according to its location. The mapping features 6 climatic zones marked by letters where letter A indicates the hottest area and letter F is the coldest area.

ICSA : It does not just respect the values ​​of the climatic bands but

With the base model window with "Ug 1,1w / m2k" glass placed abundantly below the narrowest band values.

Safety in use of window and window glass

Stained glass surfaces that are 100 cm lower than the floor plan must have a safety glazing. ICSA is fitted with a double glazed stained glass window on its window doors.In this way, security is guaranteed both inside and outside. Even in the case of false manoeuvers and improper use of the window, there are no dangers to safety; People who live in the home will be more protected, especially children and the elderly, who have less confidence in opening window systems.

Sound insulation (Rw = 32 to 46 dB depending on the model)

The acoustic insulation of the buildings was first regulated in 1991 and subsequently by the law on noise pollution (L.447 / 95). Subsequently, the Italian state, in transposition of the Community Directive, issued the decree implementing DPCM 05/12/1997 where it sets the minimum noise abatement requirements for buildings according to their intended use. As far as we are concerned, we refer to the acoustic abrasion of the façade that depends on:

  • Breaking down the wall
  • Possible leakage of air
  • Size and acoustic performance of the windows.

The typical acoustic performance of a window is influenced by air permeability, glass type, and installation that ICSA guarantees at the highest levels. In order to determine the acoustic façade, the designer must therefore consider the wall fade, performance, and window dimensions. In essence, therefore, to have a good safety when the window frame exceeds 40% of the surface, it is necessary to have an acoustic insulation greater than 38 dB. It is necessary to install a window that has those characteristics. The performance of the windows according to the type of glass should therefore be known. ICSA to solve the problem of noise abatement has developed a specific COIBENT LINE SILENT enclosurefor which hearing aid performance has been certified by the Giordano Institutewith experimental laboratory tests in order to provide certified high performance windows. It is essential that the laying is done accuratelyon the "elle" counterframe with glazing carried out on the farm by means of suitable methods and materials for the construction of the connection joint to the masonry. ICSA pays particular attention to this aspect and is therefore able to offer businesses more service.

For the safety of the designer and builder, the ICSA estimate is always accompanied by an ATTESTATION OF THE BENEFITS of the door opener supplied with all the door information regarding the standards and performance described above.
