CONSTRUCTIVE INNOVATION AND DESIGN
The need for a safe window, which lasts over time, strong, whose quality is guaranteed and certified, tried and tested, which won the satisfaction of many clients, applied and employed for completing major works and projects such as communities, hospitals, hotels; whose manufacturing produces he lowest impact possible on natural resources and environment, which does not need any maintenance, which insulates from cold and heat, which protects us from trespassing, which is nice to look at, to open and close, which is a decorative element which we can customize according to our own taste and the style of our home, which is easy to clean and is an investment over years.
When we, at Alphacan, design a window construction system, it comes from the talent and the research of a team of designing engineers who work together to reach the shared target of producing a model which contains the features of resistance, sturdiness, durability over time, pleasantness of styling lines for the final uses as well as easiness of manufacturing, assembly and storing for the fitter.
A system for a PVC window must, thus, include all these features and have a great flexibility of use: thanks to the wide range of frames and additional elements, the systems are ideal on new buildings and optimal in case of renovations.
Any composition and shape is actually possible, thanks to machinery able to form the profiles in function of the architectural styles of the context on which they will be applied.
When we state that our fitting systems are manufactured with an environmental sustainability perspective, we like to take our inspiration from the quote of the writer Antoine de Saint-Exhupery who in the "Little Prince" states “We do not inherit the earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children”.
This quote sums up the philosophy which guides us in creating a product which must meet the need to comply with a model of sustainable development.
In LCA Studies (Life Cycle Assessment which keeps in account of CO2 emissions throughout the whole life cycle of the product), the PVC applied to fittings, if compared to other materials, returns excellent results with regards to environmental impact starting from productions, performance during the years it is installed as well as the disposal at the end of its employment.
It is relevant as well to remind that any production waste and scrap is crushed and reintroduced in the production process. The same applies to a PVC fitting which reaches the end of its useful life.
It is not destroyed but recycled and introduced again in the production cycle.
PERFORMANCE AND QUALITY
Our policy for corporate quality is certified by the ISO 9001 mark, granted in 1990 as the warranty of an efficient corporate management system based on solid grounds.
Alphacan, always complying with current environmental and energy rules and constantly following any evolution of the market, is part as Founding Member of the following industry associations, PVC FORUM ITALIA, ANFIT (Associazione Nazionale della Finestra Italiana - Italian National Association of Window Manufacturers), and ANIT (Associazione Nazionale per l’Isolamento Termo-acustico - Italian National Association for Thermal -Acoustic Insulation).
It possesses, as well, the following quality certifications: IIP (Istituto Italiano dei Plastici), CSTB (Centre Scientifique et Technique du Batiment).
A good product, it is known, begins also from the selection of raw materials: we do believe in fact that it is essential to make it well understood that Alpahcan compounds are as well carefully chosen and selected for being then finely mixed in order to create an unique and exclusive formulation.
Technical performance of Alphacan PVC profiles are to be held as high profile and are recapped in the values of the tables regarding each system which clearly show the intent to work constantly on a product which, although keeping a compact (70 mm and 80 mm) and pleasant design it manages to reach technical performances characterised by high performance levels with regards to thermal and sound insulation, water and wind permeability, safety and strength over time.
Following the tests performed by our internal Laboratory, performance is then tested and certified by International level independent entities, ensuring the highest quality possible.
Furthermore, employing skilled staff with a high degree of experience in the field together with a policy of continuous improvement are two cornerstones of Alphacan's set of values.
A fixed point and value in which we strongly believe is proximity.
We listen to any customer in the view of finding solutions and develop new ideas for being able to grow together.
