WINDOWDRIVES - THE BLOG

Blog posts from A to Z
When connecting a SHEV system with all its individual components such as SHEV buttons, smoke detectors, wind/rain monitoring and motorized openers, there are a number of things to bear in mind. We have summarized what is important in the second part of our series "Connecting a SHEV system".
SHEV systems prove to be lifesavers. Stairwells are escape and rescue routes and must be safely usable and smoke-free in case of fire. The legislator requires a functioning smoke evacuation system

In Part 1 of this series, we look at the individual components of a typical stairwell SHEVS. Here we use a system from the company Aumüller Aumatic GmbH.
Especially in rooms with a lot of moisture, it is particularly important to ventilate regularly and properly. Molds feel especially at home in damp, cold rooms. We often only notice the harmful spores when they are already discoloring the walls. Fortunately, mold can be prevented with the right ventilation routine - we explain how and show our best practice example.
Large rooms, such as those found in universities, schools, hotels, museums or even in the workplace, have an increased rate of infection by pathogens. The reason for this is that several people come together over a longer period of time and the smallest particles suspended in the air promote infection

This can be counteracted by controlled natural ventilation. In our blog post, we show a simple and convenient ventilation solution that is suitable for any type of large space
Window openers and chain drives ensure safety in the event of a fire, help prevent mold growth, or exchange CO2-laden air with fresh air. At the same time, they are true all-rounders and can be used for a wide variety of applications. In the following article, we present inspirations of how our drives can also be used in other areas.
A wine cellar outside the house - Tobias Höpfner and his wife made this dream come true. In keeping with the style of the restored half-timbered house, it had to be something special: a cellar hatch that integrates into the terrace. To open the hatch as comfortably as possible, an electric drive was required. This is invisible from the outside due to the internal mounting and allows the floor hatch to be fully opened within two minutes. In the following, we reveal which advantages electric basement hatches offer and tell you more about the project "Fachwerktraumhaus".
The Corona virus has had a profound impact on all of our daily lives. Schools, in particular, have had to adapt to new situations time and again in order to provide the best possible protection for students and teachers. For example, health authorities in the respective federal states prescribe ventilation concepts to prevent infection with pathogens. This is also the case at the Max-Schmeling-Stadtteilschule in Hamburg. In the following, we will take a closer look at the school's implemented ventilation concept and present the advantages of controlled natural ventilation
The AHA rule we all know became AHA+L. (distance, hygiene, everyday mask + ventilation)

This shows that the ventilation factor has long been underestimated. Findings since the beginning of the Corona crisis show that the risk of infection is significantly higher in a closed room than in the open air. Therefore, the motto indoors is: ventilate, ventilate, ventilate. We show you how to best implement your ventilation concept in pandemic times.
Our own four walls - for most people a place of retreat, the safe haven in our lives. At home, we do everything to protect our loved ones and ourselves as well. Many living concepts today have an open living space with kitchen and stove or fireplace. But what many do not know about this: The combination of stove and range hood can have drastic consequences. In the following, we will explain the problem and show you how to solve it easily and safely.
We all try to make our everyday life and the work associated with it as effective and simple as possible. That's why today we want to present an idea from our customers that has really excited us: Max H. uses an electric drive to make grain removal from a silo extremely easy. We have taken a closer look at this method below and asked Max a few questions about how to make farming effective using electric drives.
Good sleep is a luxury that hardly anyone can afford these days. Our sometimes very stressful everyday life is to blame. However, there are some scientifically proven methods that you can use for yourself to sleep better and, above all, wake up refreshed. We have the expert tips par excellence that will surely help you sleep like Sleeping Beauty
Let's imagine: We are on vacation. We feel the sun's rays on our skin and breathe in fresh air that slowly fills
fills our lungs. Wouldn't it be nice to get this feeling at home as well?
We talked to Birgit N. about how motor openers turn her home into a feel-good oasis
