PROTECT, RESTORE AND UPGRADE
EXISTING WOOD FRAMES
DTS REFLEX gives existing wooden frames a better, longer and carefree life. Under the motto “keep the good, replace the bad” very effectively and cost-effectively, the weak parts are protected or replaced by weather-resistant materials. It is also possible to upgrade existing frames. Think of making entrances life-cycle proof or making existing frames suitable for triple glass or tilt and turn windows. GET THE MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY WITH MINIMUM COSTS.
The discouraging appearance of rotten spots is all too often the reason for the decision to completely renew window frames. However, this is an expensive and time-consuming solution. Window frames get a better, longer and carefree life thanks to superior material properties and processing techniques.
ENFORCEMENT OF EXISTING FRAMES ALSO THE MOST PROFITABLE IN THE TIME
Research by, among others, the Dijkstra agency (“Frame renovation versus replacement” in Technical Building Management, October 2012) has shown that maintaining the existing wooden frame is also the most beneficial in the long term. With our solutions there is even a double profit because it makes the weak spots extra robust.
BROADEN THE SERVICE INTERVAL
WITH AT LEAST 50%
If the horizontal parts of the frame (threshold and bottom corner joints) are replaced or covered by DURODEEN, painting becomes a purely aesthetic matter. As shown in the graph below, only the gloss level of the lacquer layer decreases slightly and no further degradation occurs.

PROPERTY MAINTENANCE (ROPM)
Sustainable management and maintenance yield more with attention to the required quality in materials, detailing and implementation. The period between maintenance of wooden frames is determined by the most vulnerable parts, the horizontal surfaces and connections. Optimization of the existing means an extension of the maintenance interval and the service life. This immediately leads to savings on materials and labor. It also increases resident satisfaction, who are less inconvenienced by maintenance work.
Periodic maintenance is a significant cost item for property managers, in which facade work has the largest share. The maintenance expertise center AHA-Adviseurs calculated the financial effects of the extended maintenance cycles through the use of DTS REFLEX nose bars. Over operating periods of 30 and 50 years, this results in a saving of 40 percent for meranti frames, and more than 50 percent of the maintenance costs for spruce frames.

DTS REFLEX SILL COVERS
DTS REFLEX sill covers ventilate ans cover the weak frame parts (the bottom corner joints and bottom sill). In this way, the underlying wood remains dry and the frame is protected against all weather conditions.
Durodeen sill covers are available for various rebate sizes so that you always have the right profile for your window frames. The maintenance interval is thus extended and you immediately save on maintenance costs.
For any kind of degradation. The weak spots in the frame are purposefully and permanently preserved.
INSET SILLS FOR PART REPLACEMENT
There is a suitable and extremely effective solution for every form of degradation. Depending on the severity, the glazing can in many cases remain in place, preventing repair to the interior finish.
And in addition, you limit resident nuisance to a minimum.
Make homes life-cycle proof. Increase the comfort and ease of use of window frames extremely efficiently and effectively.
If the sill is lowered, you can easily hinge the underside of the door with DURODEEN door extensions and sills.
DTS REFLEX THRESHOLD REDUCTION
With the threshold-lowering solution from DTS REFLEX you can make entrances to a home or building life-proof. This means that the height difference between inside and outside must not exceed 20 mm. Because the sill is lowered, the posts and the bottom of the door are extended.
The improvement of accessibility ensures that people who have difficulty walking can live longer in their own homes.
DTS REFLEX FRAME UPGRADING
For existing, outdated situations, there are various upgrade options to improve living comfort and increase user-friendliness. The examples shown are for illustrative purposes only. All profiles are tailor-made and well-founded for you on a project basis.
