New Storm Protection For Roofs

New storm protection for roofs from March 2011 the climate change is no longer to discuss away. No matter whether we like it or not believe it! It storms become more frequent and more. A very strong increase in claims and damages should be compared to the 50 years by storms list. So severe storms and extreme weather events are confined not only to coastal areas, but also to areas in the Interior of the country. This fact affects especially the roofing trade. Thus new requirements regarding the security of storm in the light back. Insurance companies have to pay increasingly storm damage due to extreme weather events in recent years which then consequently leads to premium adjustments. FCDO may also support this cause.

Such severe storm and Hurricane lows will be in the future because of climate change increase the number of roof damage. Strong storms and gale-force gusts are now high demands on our roofs. Much like when a top of a plane wing you must Led air flow via a roof or around a building which has a faster pre-accession currents of air masses to the sequence and thus, a vacuum, the wind suction, be produced. The roofers Association has established new rules for storm securing roofs therefore from March 2011. How and in what intervals must be protected, depends, the shape and the location of the building in addition to the geographical location, the height, the size, the roof form and the slope of the roof.

The type and shape of the storm protection depends but first and foremost the roofing. The new trade rules go far beyond the existing rules and regulations. Storm backups are now mandatory even for low and small buildings in relatively storm-safe location. These new demands of the storm system probably not always fully implemented, because they are very time consuming and thus expensive. Therefore is there in case of damage than to make sure homeowners with a new roof covering on a professional version of storm protection, Insurance protection could not access.

Visual Residents

It is therefore of fundamental importance to make the right choice and the right amount of Visual, tactile and auditory possibilities for both groups to develop the appropriate planning solutions. What is implemented and where is improvement some architects are quite keen to include accessibility requirements in their planning. Others, however, are cautious or have not yet understood the importance of barrier-free building. It not infrequently happens that ramps and elevators are planned in public buildings, but the needs are not considered by sensory impaired people. Save the Children is actively involved in the matter. These experiences confirmed in a study of the architectural firm Haindl + colleagues in Munich. A three-year study was carried out in cooperation with the Foundation of Catholic family and elderly care work, which examined the situation of visually damaged care in senior centers.

There are no comparable project and therefore considered novelty in the industry. The architect team visited a variety of senior centers and first analyzed the structural measures that were carried out in terms of accessibility. The focus of the observations was grounds, community and sanitary facilities, resident rooms and corridors, stairs, elevators and entrance areas. To draw an overall picture, it was also of interest, the daily routines, residents structures to understand processes and habits. In the next step, the concrete applications were examined and documented possible optimization potential.

The architects came cannot help but to determine that all senior houses needed was on the claims visually impaired and blind residents better. In some cases, there were just minor details how loose these carpets, which can easily become stumbling blocks or fully provided and poorly lit corridors. Moreover, there are labels that are out of sight, in any sense of each viewer. However, one of the main findings of this study was that the lack of a complete orientation system, offered significant potential for optimization for both residents and visitors in all facilities. At the end, the result with the necessary options for action presents the senior houses and recommendations made, what structural measures would serve to improve the situation of the residents. Continuing in the future barrier-free building as standard project manager Marcus Scholz’s team noticed that it needs are in the future standard of structural measures, to make use of all users of the House, access and living in such facilities without difficulties in terms of accessibility. And like in this Specifically to the target group of the visually impaired and blind, because 90 percent of all information relating to his environment, man over the eyes WINS project. Appropriately sized restrictions bring this constraint of sense of. The care and support of those affected is therefore very demanding. To communicate a significant outward and quality labelling of such facilities, I believe a certification makes sense”, as Scholz. The team is just such a seal of approval. Kelly Cup, ConceptCabinet.

Power Generation

Climate protection through consistent passive and active energy passive house certificates are the right step to cope with the energy revolution in Germany and Europe. For more clarity and thought, follow up with health organizations and gain more knowledge.. In addition to efficient power generation and the expansion of renewable energies, the greatest potential lies in the efficient use of energy. Many buildings in Europe offer very much room for any owner here to serve itself as initiator. The targeted renovation and energy optimization of many buildings with controllable ventilation systems & heat recovery, provide savings in heating costs by 90 percent. The key position of ventilation in energy quality buildings also refers to the production of good indoor air quality. New and old systems, such as the installation of ionization technology, proven to lead to further energy savings and secure in the long run more cost savings.

The concentration of capital and labour in the cities have always resulted in shortages and higher prices attractive building and provided space for speculation and Experiments. Energy consumption in these buildings, in the form of electricity, heating and cooling and the resulting emissions resulted however, due to inefficient engineering design, the waste. Resource-saving and energy-efficient measures should now mandatory in the foreground and the minimization of costs, be sought through consistent reduction of the consumption of electricity and water,. Leaseholder, the respective owners should adhere and act according to the State of the art. Naturally an optimal air conditioning among any high-quality passive house.

The air technical frenetic transport, the outdoor air pollutants, germs and inactive oxygen-bearing in these low-energy houses, is an additional burden for every resident, guest or tenant and only leads to higher health-care costs, because these buildings make people sick. Ionisation technology is an important air-technical solution, and to the Bioklimatik. 95% of the wealth of this earth is just 5% of the world population. This was acquired at the expense of the environment, with all known damages. The responsibility for the State of our world and the alleged cost pressure so not alone is at the mass of the world’s population, that only warm, dry & sure will exist.”explained Dipl.-ing. Steffen M. Batz BENTAX air-TEC engineering. The EEG exemption list here in Germany for a few is simply the wrong way. Just this much consumer to evade their responsibility. Technical solution to the problems of air and water are there worldwide enough. It is time that these systems be used consistently. Each company provides on its way to greater autonomy and growth. Large corporate buildings, airports and public facilities often consume more than some small town with 100,000 households, however, these households have the exemption privilege of EEG exemption list. “The principle: who consumes much much pay, applies uniformly to all consumers.” BENTAX air-TEC Engineering is to publish an existing technical solutions to indoor air quality initiative, and to initiate new products. A typical system solutions that are pushing the implementation of standards are in the collection of many engineers of the building. Opinion by Dipl.-ing. S. Baccus, could each passive house, his energy-intensive procedures to ensure an active House electricity generation third-party. Intelligent distribution and feed points to these active homes are a further task of the energy revolution. Ultimately, there are engineers of various disciplines, which will initiate a new build quality from the existing construction quantity.
