2 PVC WINDOWS CATALOGUE WE ARE A CORPORATE GROUP WITH MORE THAN 35 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE Founded in 1975 under the name PLASTISAN, our initial activity was the distribution of building materials. In 1985 we changed our name to DEYPLASA and, in addition to our original activity, became the first Santander-based company to manufacture PVC windows. A few years later we decided to take full advantage of our distribution network and joined forces with the company Plásticos CAE to also begin manufacturing aluminium windows (1991). Once both companies had merged and after having expanded the radius of our activity –not only to the adjoining regions here in Spain, but also to France– we decided to add the manufacture of double-glazed units (also known as UVAs) to the Group’s product range. In 2001 this led to the creation of NORGLASS, which manufactures every time of glass product. WHY CHOOSE DEYPLASA? Because of our technical and human resources: The latest technology and the best machinery; four production centres covering a surface area of over 10,000 m² manned by 70 highly qualified workers and a team of technicians capable of meeting any of our customers’ needs.

DEYPLASA 9 GLAZING THE VISIBLE PART OF A WINDOW The importance of the glass in your window also forms part of your decision- taking process. MANY SOLUTIONS AVAILABLE: TINTED GLASS The addition of colorants to the base glass mixture colours the finished product and reduces its light transmission properties. The colour extends throughout the entire thickness of the glass. TEMPERED GLASS This is a type of safety and/or security glass that has been subjected to a controlled heat or chemical treatment to increase its strength in comparison with normal glass. Tempered glass is approximately 4 to 5 times stronger than thermo-hardened glass of the same thickness when subjected to uniform static compression loads. LAMINATED GLASS Two or more sheets of glass that are permanently bound together sandwiching one or two sheets of intercalary material. It provides good soundproofing and high security against break-ins. DOUBLE GLAZING Two, or even three, panes of glass separated by a chamber of air or another gas such as argon to reduce thermal transfer and/or sound transmission through a part of the outer skin of the building. In insulated glazing elementsBEAR IN MAND the chamber between the panes of glass isTHAT: scrupulously dehumidified and the edges areThe solar factor shall sealed to eliminate any possible condensation and endow them with greater insulationhave to be as low as properties.possible, whereasvisible transmittance VISIBLE TRANSMITTANCE This expresses the amount of visible lightshall have to be as high transmitted.as possible.

10 PVC WINDOWS CATALOGUE SOUNDPROOFING ENJOY THE SILENCE AND COMFORT PROTECTION AGAINST NOISE FOR A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE Noise has a huge impact on our quality of life. Two of its effects are disturbed sleep and constant stress, both of which can cause lasting damage to our health. PVC windows are an effective protection against noise and help towards creating a permanently agreeable ambience.

12 PVC WINDOWS CATALOGUE ENERGY EFFICIENCY COMFORT IN THE HOME AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION Innovative high quality DECANOR PVC windows cut energy loss down to a minimum. By fitting PVC windows you can contribute towards the conservation of increasingly scarce natural resources and the reduction of contaminating emissions. Insulating with DECANOR PVC windows will combine environmental protection with a comfortable home life. U (Uw) Value The U value of the glazing (Ug) * glazed surface area (Ag) + the U value of the frame (Uf) *frame surface area (Af) + Psi value (H*) * length of the perimeter seal (I) / glazed surface area (Ag) + frame surface area (Af). The U value determines the thermal transference coefficient of the material. The subscript w of this value refers to the window as a whole. The calculation thereof is based on the U values and the dimensions of each individual material of all the components, in other words the glass, the material of the frame, as well as the psi value, which describes the thermal flow that occurs via the perimeter seal with the spacer of the insulating glass.
