CERRAMIENTO DE TEJADO











Hay ocasiones en las que necesitamos hacer un cerramiento de tejado o tapar un hueco en la parte superior de nuestra casa, ya sea esta una buhardilla, patio de luces o un tragaluz.  Ya sea por estética,  por dotar de más luz a una habitación, por hacer más accesible el tejado en previsión a su mantenimiento o para proteger de la lluvia y demás inclemencias meteorológicas la zona central del patio de un tragaluz, el poner allí una estructura de aluminio nos ayudará a conseguir nuestros objetivos con la máxima eficiencia y calidad.

Dado a que estas situaciones plantean problemas diferentes, las soluciones tienen que ser también diferentes. Por ello pondremos aquí algunos ejemplos de las mismas y las soluciones en aluminio que ofrecemos.

Si tenemos una abertura  o un hueco en el tejado, pero está en posición vertical y sobre él no va a correr gran cantidad de agua (como puede ser la ventana de una buhardilla que no esté situada exactamente en el propio tejado, sino en una pared anexa al mismo) podemos instalar una ventana de aluminio estándar, aunque es recomendable que esté protegida por algún elemento de seguridad, como puede ser una reja, vidrios laminados o unos porticones para evitar que los ladrones pudieran deslizarse desde el tejado para acceder a nuestra vivienda a través de ella.

En cambio, si el hueco está en el mismo tejado y no queremos instalar allí una pantalla plástica deberemos instalar una ventana tipo Velux o claraboyas fijas, que nos garantizará un cierre estanco y un aislamiento perfecto del agua y el viento y con cristales de cámara opacos y con tratamiento de protección solar. Estas ventanas, además de ofrecer estas ventajas son muy estéticas  y versátiles, pudiendo incorporar complementos como pueden ser las cortinas tipo screen o persianas, por lo que pese a su precio las hace una buena opción si tenemos ese tipo de hueco. Además su manejo es muy cómodo ya que se puede accionar a distancia manualmente o mediante un motor con mando a distancia.

Y finalmente, si el hueco a tapar es el patio de un tragaluz, hay que proceder de una forma diferente.  Dado a que el el hueco a tapar es mucho más amplio, hay que plantear la estructura como si de un cerramiento tipo galería se tratara: más simple si el cliente solo quiere instalar un tejado para permitir que la ventilación del tragaluz o más completo si por el contrario quiere cerrar totalmente el hueco. Antiguamente este tipo de techos o cerramientos se solían hacer en una estructura de hierro con un techo de cristal de malla de hierro, de plástico de corrugado o de uralita en los modelos más antiguos. Actualmente se prefiere hacerlo de aluminio con un techo de policarbonato con tratamiento especial para la radiación solar, ya que se trata de una estructura que resiste mejor el paso del tiempo, la corrosión y el efecto decolorador del sol, además de ser una estructura que requiere mucho menos mantenimiento que las anteriores, lo que la hace interesante para lugares como comunidades de vecinos, en las que no podremos encargarnos personalmente de su mantenimiento, además de suponer un ahorro en el coste de su mantenimiento a medio y largo plazo. Además podemos incorporar elementos para la aireación como pueden ser un sistema de techo corredizo o unos gravent o mallorquinas móviles para una aireación a voluntad.

Gecco "Metal Gear Rising Revengence" 1/6th Scale RAIDEN PVC Statue with stand is 32 cm

RAIDEN, the enormously popular central character from the mega hit action game “Metal Gear Rising Revengence” is recreated as a PVC statue. The heroic pose, grabbing a “SELF REPAIR UNIT” extracted (“ZANDATSU KILL”) from the enemy cyborg soldier in his left hand, and his HF blade in the right, highlights the best part of Akao’s technique. The statue features a well-balanced & beautiful muscular body which also illustrates his outstanding skill.

The highly detailed mechanical designs of the weapons and overlapping armor are digitally sculpted by Akao’s brother. This is their first collaboration. The eye glows red with a mounted LED in the head. The closed visor for battle mode is available with optional parts. The “HF MURASAMA BLADE” left by his worthy rival, Jetstream Sam, is interchangeable in his right hand, and the scabbard in his left hand. As for the cyborg soldier lying at his feet, shows not only the abject cut surface of the body, but also “the expression of the dying arm” trying to say something.

This masterpiece thoroughly supervised by Yoji Shinkawa (the art director of Kojima Production) is the most “pictorial” and “beautiful” RAIDEN ever. Gecco “Metal Gear Rising Revengence” 1/6 Scale RAIDEN PVC Statue with stand included is approximately 32cm in height.

Very Cool 1/6 scale Viper suit sets are for Dr Green / Viper as seen in 2013 Wolverine film

The Wolverine is a 2013 superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Wolverine. The film, distributed by 20th Century Fox, is the sixth installment in the X-Men film series. Hugh Jackman reprises his role from previous films as the title character, with James Mangold directing a screenplay written by Scott Frank and Mark Bomback, based on the 1982 limited series Wolverine by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. In the film which follows the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, Logan travels to Japan, where he engages an old acquaintance in a struggle that has lasting consequences. Stripped of his immortality, Wolverine must battle deadly samurai while struggling with guilt.

Svetlana Khodchenkova stars as Dr. Green / Viper (formerly known as Madame Hydra), a mutant, who has an immunity to toxins. About her character, Khodchenkova said “Viper doesn’t really have many people that she cares about, most of them she just uses for her own purpose.” Mangold said, “as her name would imply, she’s kind of snake-like,” and that Viper views Logan “like a great hunter might view hunting a lion in his quarry.”

Very Cool 1/6 scale Viper Leather Wind Coat Suit Set (Product Code: VCF-2023) will include: 1/6 scale Female Rooted Hair Head Sculpt, Leather Wind Coat, Leather Pants, Vest, Pair of Boots (no foot inside), Gloved Hand x 3. Note: 12-inch Figure Body is not included. Pattern of the suit set is referenced to VERY COOL’s female large bust body.

Putin to Western elites: Play-time is over

Most people in the English-speaking parts of the world missed Putin’s speech at the Valdai conference in Sochi a few days ago, and, chances are, those of you who have heard of the speech didn’t get a chance to read it, and missed its importance. (For your convenience, I am pasting in the full transcript of his speech below.) Western media did their best to ignore it or to twist its meaning. Regardless of what you think or don’t think of Putin (like the sun and the moon, he does not exist for you to cultivate an opinion) this is probably the most important political speech since Churchill’s “Iron Curtain” speech of March 5, 1946.
In this speech, Putin abruptly changed the rules of the game. Previously, the game of international politics was played as follows: politicians made public pronouncements, for the sake of maintaining a pleasant fiction of national sovereignty, but they were strictly for show and had nothing to do with the substance of international politics; in the meantime, they engaged in secret back-room negotiations, in which the actual deals were hammered out. Previously, Putin tried to play this game, expecting only that Russia be treated as an equal. But these hopes have been dashed, and at this conference he declared the game to be over, explicitly violating Western taboo by speaking directly to the people over the heads of elite clans and political leaders.

The Russian blogger chipstone summarized the most salient points from Putin speech as follows:

The “TSR 66″ is RoboCop’s main sidearm in the film. The pistol is a Beretta with a custom shell that was created using a 3D printer.

RoboCop uses a customized SMG in the film as his main firearm. Mattox (Jackie Earle Haley), OmniCorp armorer and RoboCop’s trainer in the movie, states it is chambered for the .50 Beowulf caliber.

The man in the machine: When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman in the title role) – a loving husband, father and good cop gets critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.

An Ending and a Beginning: VMware Has Acquired Continuent

As of today, Continuent is part of VMware. We are absolutely over the moon about it.

You can read more about the news on the VMware vCloud blog by Ajay Patel, our new boss. There’s also an official post on our Continuent company blog. In a nutshell the Continuent team is joining the VMware Cloud Services Division. We will continue to improve, sell, and support our Tungsten products and work on innovative integration into VMware’s product line.

So why do I feel exhilarated about joining VMware? There are three reasons. 

1.     Continuent is joining a world-class company that is the leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure solutions. Even better, VMware understands the value of data to businesses. They share our vision of managing an integrated fabric of standard DBMS platforms, both in public clouds as well as in local data centers. It is a great home to advance our work for many years to come.

2.     We can continue to support our existing users and make Tungsten even better. I know many of you have made big decisions to adopt Continuent technology that would affect your careers if they turned out badly. We now have more resources and a mandate to grow our product line. We will be able to uphold our commitments to you and your businesses.

3.     It’s a great outcome for our team, which has worked for many years to make Continuent Tungsten technology successful. This includes our investors at Aura in Helsinki, who have been dogged in their support throughout our journey.

Speaking of the Continuent team…I am so proud of what all of you have achieved. Today we are starting a new chapter in our work together. See you at VMware!
