PVC PROFILE SYSTEMS
Since its establishment in 1991, Eticom has been a traditional partner to the Bavarian manufacturer of PVC systems - Salamader.
The German company is one of the leading European providers of systems for highly energy efficient PVC windows and doors. Salamander products are famous for their high tech solutions, great variety of profile systems and excellent thermal and sound insulation. Eticom manufactures two main types of Salamander profile systems - BlueEvolution 92 - high-end 6-chamber system with supreme thermal insulation characteristics and Streamline - 5-chamber system.
In the late 2016, Eticom has come to an agreement for strategic partnership with another major producer of PVC profile systems - Gealan. The German company is a leading manufacturer of innovative PVC profile systems for windows, entrance and sliding doors. Gealan PVC profile systems feature many innovative technologies which provide increased heat insulation and resistance to harsh atmospheric conditions. In its production, Eticom uses two profile systmes - Gealan 8000 and Gelan 9000. The former, is 5- or 6-chamber system specifically designed to meet the need for cost-effective profile with excellent heat and sound insulation characteristics. Gealan 9000 is 6-chamber, 82.5 mm profile that could pack up to 52 mm triple glazing. Combined with the IKD insulation system, it provides outstanding heat insulation - Uf as low as 0.89 W/m2K
Traditionally, Eticom is partner with the local manufacturer of aluminium profiles - Etem. The company is one of the major manufacturers of extruded aluminium profiles in Europe. Etem's product range offers a wide variety of architectural profile systems suitable for manufacturing of unitised facades, sun shades, standard tilt and turn windows and doors, sliding and bi-fold doors.
However, Eticom could process any aluminium profile system upon request by the customer. The company has realised many projects with the leading brands SCHÜCO and REYNAERS.
In cooperation with Saint-Gobain Glass Eticom offers only high-quality and energy efficient glazing solutions.
Saint-Gobain is a french multinational corporation founded 352 years ago as a mirror glass manufacturer. Nowadays, it is one of the biggest companies in the building materials industry and its glass products are considered to be of the highest quality.
High-quality hardware ensures both - the problem free functioning of the windows and doors and a long life of exploitation.
Eticom uses worldwide leading hardware technology from ROTO FRANK. The German company is famous for inventing the tilt opening and patented coating technology - RotoSil Nano with titanium-silver surface protection.
USING STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGIES FOR 100% AUTOMATED PVC PROCESSING OPERATIONS
ETICOM is one of the biggest manufacturers of high-quality PVC systems on the Balkans. To meet the market’s growing demand for high-class products and to stay ahead of the curve, the company has modern production facility equipped with computerized machines made by the leading companies URBAN and PERTICI.
The state-of-the-art equipment automate the entire manufacturing process of PVC doors and windows, guaranteeing consistency, precision of work, decreased human error, increased safety, shorter development time and unmatched final results.
MAKING THE PERFECT WINDOW
100% of the actual profile processing is done on CNC machines that are integrated into a fully automated process. The first step is to measure and cut the profile to the desired lengths and angles. Each profile is marked with barcode for identification. The PVC profiles are reinforced with metal and fed to machining center for fully automatic connection of the metal reinforcement, drilling and milling of all necessary slits. The profiles are then ready for welding on a 4-headed adhesive machine which guarantees perfect geometry of the frame. Finally, the unnecessary material from the welding is cut and removed on an automatic cleaning machine.
Once the frame is ready, it is time for the manual operations. Firstly, the frames are fitted with the hardware and the seals. After that, the glazing is put on and the completed window undergoes functional and quality tests.
LEAN SEMI-AUTOMATED PROCESS GIVES HANDCRAFTED QUALITY AND FLEXIBILITY
The aluminium and its components render among the best construction materials known to humanity for centuries. Its unique qualities make it suitable for the manufacturing of standard tilt and turn windows, but also doors, facades, architectural systems, interior walls shutters and others.
Eticom has dedicated aluminium production facility with cutting and drilling machines and stands for windows and facades with various size and shape. The customer is free to choose the aluminum system and design that best match his building architecture and functionality.
GLASS UNITS PRODUCTION
STATE-OF-THE-ART INSULATED GLASS UNITS MANUFACTURING
Eticom employs fully automated modern nesting machine with automatic loading that is capable of working with jumbo-sized glass. Another specialized machine is responsible for cutting, bending and sealing of the spacer. The glass unit is manufactured on a computerized line with automated cleaning, wiping, pressing and per fusing a two-components mixture through the principle of hermetic sealing with butyl rubber and polysulphite. The polysulphite stays unaffected on weather changes and guarantees perfect hermetisation. The whole process is controlled by special software.
THE COMPANY COUNTS ON PROFESSIONALISM AND PICKS ONLY SKILLFUL PEOPLE
The team at ETICOM is made up of well-trained people who generate high-class results and help the company create bigger customer value. The employees demonstrate high-tech knowledge and ability to operate with advanced machines for streamlined manufacturing processes.
With 20+ years of experience, they approach each and every operation with correctness, follow exact measurements and manufacture every profile system in accordance with clients’ precise requirements. Paying attention to every detail, the staff smoothly and manually places each profile component, from hardware, through glazing to rubber seals.
DEDICATED TO PRECISION OF WORK AND FOCUSED ON EXCELLENCE
To achieve high-quality windows and doors, the team carries out flawless production process and approaches each and every profile with precision. They perform two types of quality tests – visual and functional. The visual quality test is performed manually to eliminate defects and imperfections, and to guarantee smooth surface look and welded joints.
The functional quality test is done via machinery that simulates working in actual environment upon installation to ensure endurance, resistance to external factors and 100% functionality of doors and windows of all sizes.
BUILDING REWARDING WORK CONDITIONS AND CULTURE THAT STIMULATES MUTUAL EFFORTS AND STRENGTHENS WORKFORCE
ETICOM is committed to building well-organized and safe working environment that facilitates the work of each and every employee by using modern production technologies, by integrating intelligent profile systems and continuously improving the process of manufacturing.
