TOLERANCES AND CONFORMITY (Attachment 1)
Any evaluation to be done on IG Blinds internal blind systems is to be based only on observing of the blind positioned inside the double glazing.
The evaluation concerns only elements visible on the blind, and doesn’t concern in any way the quality and/or type of the utilized glass.
To evaluate its conformity:
The internal blind system has to be installed vertically, needs to be lowered with the slats at 45°, needs to be observed from at least 2 meters with a horizontal line of observation not highlighting the areas of possible not conformity before the evaluation. It needs to be examined with diffuse natural light and without direct sunlight.
IG Blinds internal blind system with a venetian blind considers a distance from the
Side spacer of 3,5 +/- 1 mm. this allows a free upwards and downwards movement and
A free orientation movement of the blind.
Concerning the models of the Venetian blind with raising function, also considering the tolerances of the cords (together with other plastic and aluminium components present in the function mechanism of the blind) it is possible that some minor misalignment will occur between the bottom rail and the head rail particularly in high and narrow blinds.
It needs to be mentioned that the thermal excursions can provoke retirement and enlargements of the cords and of the slats ladder, which in conjunction with the weight of the bottom rail can provoke effectively differences such as a bottom rail being lifted or a blind apparently higher than normal.
These circumstances are to be considered completely normal and don’t affect the conformity of the Venetian blind that is to be considered as such and can’t be measured in absolute terms.
This inclination are allowed and defined based on three different positions of the blind
Low Position +/- 2 mm
Intermediate Position +/-6 mm
High Position +/- 7,5 mm
Thermal excursions can cause small nonhomogeneous in the,
packing of the slats ladder, but this is to be considered normal in venetian blinds.
It is, therefore, clear that during the raising and the lowering of the blind all the slats don’t take the correct position respect immediately to the others and that it’s reached after the automatic overturning at the low end of the run or once the raising is completed on the top end.
This appears acceptable if the number of the slats in a non-correct position in respect of the whole blind is not greater than 2% (occurring in a continuing and constant way).
The blinds in the internal blind systems are therefore produced considering what above to compensate this natural tolerance of the components.
5. SLATS AND BOTTOM RAIL
The maximum flexure of the of the slats and bottom rail, taking as reference the median point between the extremities, is indicated considering the width of the blind.
The result is therefore a tolerance within the parameters below:
Blind inferior of 1.5m width: 4mm
Blind with a width between 1.5m and 2.5m: 9mm
Blind with a width bigger than 2.5m: 14mm
The orientation of the slats allows to regulate the control of light coming in from the external environment;
this is made possible by the slats ladders together with the internal mechanism which allows the closure or aperture of the slats.
The closing angle can’t be inferior to 60° considered in respect to the orthogonal axis of the internal glazing plate,
There are also additional tolerances to consider regarding this closure related with the height of the blind itself.
Until 1m: 55°
Higher than 1m: 50°
The slats must overlaps of at least 1mm with a maximum closing angle of 60 degrees.
A minimum angle of 90° must be guaranteed with respect on the longitudinal axis of the slats.
8. SLATS PARALLELISM
The maximum excursion of the slats with respect to the horizontal position cannot be inferior of 2 mm executing the measurement in different points of the glazed glass with horizontal slats.
The maximum excursion of the slats with respect to the horizontal position cannot be inferior of 2 mm executing the measurement in different points of the glazed glass with horizontal slats.
IT’S IMPORTANT NOT TO SEE ANY OBJECTS FROM THE OUTSIDE FOR AN AREA OF AT LEAST 15 CM BELOW THE HORIZONTAL LINE
Please note: blinds nearby, even of identical dimension, can have a different degree of closure between each other, and this is to be considered completely normal considering what is explained above regarding tolerances. This behaviour could be more prominent in the high and narrow blinds.
SYSTEM TV22VOPN TILT ONLY FUNTION WITH MANUAL TURN KNOB
1. TOLERANCES FOR MODEL TV22VOPN TILTING FUCTION WITH MANUAL TURN KNOB
In the system TV22OPN the distance of the slats from the side spacer is equal to 3mm+/- 1mm. These tolerances are considered in compensation of possible linear thermal expansion of the aluminum.
2. CORDS AND SLATS LADDER
Because of thermal excursion, caused by climatic changes, the regression of the slats ladder can cause, in the TV22VOPN system, a light flexion of the bottom rail (being connected to side spacers with specific stops) that can reach the following parameters:
2 mm for blinds with width inferior to 1 m
5 mm for blinds with width bigger than 1 m
Finally regarding the orientation of the slats in the system TV22VOPN, it is to be considered normal the first slats are of the higher part (which support the orientation of all the others thanks to some specific stops).
This might assume a different inclination compared to all the other ones until the slats are not completely closed in a sense or the other. This behavior can be more evident in blinds of big dimensions.
The evaluation has to be done observing the internal blind from this position:
* at least 2 mt from the blind
* only from the inside towards the outside
* in an erect and frontal area (orthogonal)
* in conditions of diffuse and natural light without direct sunlight or direct artificial sunlight
* without a prior identification of the sections potentially object of the notification
DEPOSITS ON THER SLATS/STAINS OR DIRT ON THE FABRIC, HEAD RAIL, BOTTOM RAIL, END OF SLATS AND/ON FABRIC, SPACERS
Inclusions, bubbles, stains anomalies in the covering of dimension inferior or equal to 3 mm are not considered defects. The local concentration of eventual inclusions, bubbles, points, stains, point-shaped residuals and superficial, etc., Is allowed if it doesn’t provoke a visual disturbance when observing the blind as specified above and if not greater than 3mm. Light scratches or other signs on the fabric are expected if just visible and if their size is not greater than 30mm. The length of the single scratch cannot be greater than 30mm.
CENTRAL PART OF THE BLIND
Inclusions, bubbles, points, stains anomalies in the covering of dimensions smaller or equal to 2mm are not to be considered defects. The local concentration of Inclusions, bubbles, points, stains, point-shaped superficial residuals is allowed if it doesn’t provoke a visual disturbance when observing the blind as specified above and if not greater than 2mm. Light scratches or other signs on the fabric are accepted if just visible and if their size is not greater than 30mm. The length of the single scratch cannot be greater than 15mm.
We remember that the rubbing of the slats on the side spacers during the movement of the blind can sometimes cause a deposit of dark dust (aluminium powder) due to the rubbing of the two parts. This problem has been addressed with the use of special lateral caps and by the use of a slat of 12,5 mm in the kit of 20 mm, 22 mm and 27 mm.
A, The IG Blinds internal blind system is built to be installed in a perpendicular double glazing and on a horizontal floor.
B, The IG Blinds internal blind system is not to be stored or glazed in a inclined position as it can cause:
• the slats failing to rotate
• the breakage of the slats ladders
• the tangling of the cords
• the damage of the internal glass
C, The IG Blinds internal blind system can be used for glazed glass and tilting units at the condition that the blind is not operated with the internal blind system inclined. In tilting windows, it is necessary to raise the blind before any tilting.
D, The IG Blinds internal blind system can be used in double glazed installed on doors only in if these are equipped with special end-run shock absorbers.
