R&D CORTIZO TECHNOLOGY CENTRE

CORTIZO counts with a Technological Center made up of a multidisciplinary team of 52 people, dedicated to the development of new products and adaptation of existing ones to the constructive and climatic realities of each area where we are present.

 

Design, innovation and quality are main characters in the more than 50 state of the art systems for window, door, façade, composite panel, balustrade and solar protection, designed by our R+D+I department.

 

A team of engineers and architects takes up architectural tendencies in the main fairs of the sector and Architecture studios of all over the world. Meanwhile, another team of engineers optimizes the thermal and acoustic performance of the PVC and aluminum systems, and also the speed in fabricating and assembling.

 

At CORTIZO, presses extrude and 8 test benches check empirically the features of the products fabricated.

 

  • Two AEV test benches allow checking and guaranteeing the air permeability, water tightness and wind resistance of the products.
  • One thermal test bench takes over measuring the performance of the systems in all related to energy efficiency.
  • An acoustic test bench optimizes the protection offered by CORTIZO windows and façades against noise pollution.
  • A mechanic test bench simulates the opening cycles of a window to test the resistance and durability of its hardware and joints.
  • Moreover, the Technological Center counts with a resistance test bench for horizontal load and impact in curtain walls; a resistance test bench for wind load in solar protection louvers and dynamic and static test bench for balustrades.

In a nutshell, aesthetic and performance join in a Technological Center entirely focused on research.
