The company F.LLI LUCHESA srl was founded in 1991, but company history dates much further back, to 1926 when the father of today’s partners opened a workshop for the production of farm wagons. Today, the seven Luchesa brothers use the same handicraft style and quality as then, but in the construction of external doors and windows in wood, with the constant aim of offering a highly qualified product.
The Luchesa factory is in Marazzone di Bleggio Superiore, on a land area of circa 7.000 m², of which 4.000 are covered. Thanks to new and advanced production systems, the company can deliver any type of door or window, ensuring perfect construction and guaranteeing high levels of both thermal and acoustic insulation.
ASSEMBLY with glues to standard UNI EN 204-04.
MAIN FRAME profile section 92 x 85 mm with three rabbets, rounded edges.
OPENING SASHES 3-rabbet profile section 92 x 85 mm, with rounded edges, lower crossbar with weep holes at the drip bar, to drain any condensate from the glazing, including the glazing beads.
INSULATION Heat and noise insulation, water and air sealing. Guaranteed by three heat and noise proof gaskets EPDM, welded at the corners, of which two inserted in the main frame and one on the shutter. A fourth gasket can be inserted in the glazing bead.
DRIP BAR In aluminium with plastic terminals (can be covered in wood). Heat barrier in aluminium and polyamide.
HARDWARE New generation hardware with 13 mm offset, hardware axis shifted towards the middle of the profile to increase the stability of the strike plate fastenings. This system ensures the window has greater resistance to pulling-out and burglary and that maintenance is simple and reduced.
