Quality of our products

What is Max Protect? Dakea

Max protect

We know that making a hole in a roof is something that has to be 100% secured. Severe weather can affect the structural integrity of the house and by choosing the right window you can help reduce the risk of major damage.

Why is it called Masterwood?

Masterwood

We guarantee that all our wood is certified, rigorously selected, Arctic Nordic Pine, which is known for excellent density and increased durability due to very harsh weather conditions of the region.

Comfort and safety glass - where does it come from?

Comfort and safety

Comfort Glass keeps the house warm in the winter and prevents heat build-up in the summer. Additionally, thanks to blocking 95% of UV rays, it protects furniture and carpets from fading. That's all thanks to the double-pane window glazing unit filled with krypton and covered by two low-emission, double action layers of coating.

Easy clean pvc

Thanks to our milling tools, which have a speed rotation of up to 18000 per minute, the profiling of our windows are smooth and precise. The insulated and steel-reinforced PVC material is carefully welded together for maximum strength of the final product – the Dakea PVC roof window.

Masterwood

Carefully selected and sourced from renewable forests - FSC certified Nordic Pine is the main element of all wooden roof windows in the Dakea range. Our rigorous production process is designed to make the pine even better quality with: humidity-controlled storage, lamination, eco-friendly water-based varnish, drying and more.

testing roof windows

Tested to perfection

Hours, hits, pressure-power, wind-power, layers, days, years, nights, magnifications, shifts, temperature, liters of water… and even cups of coffee consumed during the test… they all have a number proving the work dedicated to delivering the highest quality window. And the numbers are impressive. We guarantee.

testing roof windows

Tested with a 50 kg impactor

We hit our Ultima roof window with a 50 kg impactor. It might sound extreme, but then so might be the weather. The result? Nothing happened. Proof that our windows resist even the most extreme weather conditions.

testing roof windows DAKEA

Tested with
100db noise

We tortured our window with 100dB of noise which is equivalent to the noise made by an electric drill. The result? Our Ultima window reduced the amount of noise by 50% compared to a standard roof window.

Tested against
144 km/h speed winds

We checked the resistance of our Ultima roof window to hurricane winds. Even such extreme conditions didn’t damage it in any way. Windproof approved.

DAKEA windows testing

Tested with 600 litres of rainwater

Imagine 600 liters of rain falling in just one hour. That’s the equivalent of the amount of annual rainfall per square meter in London! And that’s the amount we dropped on our Ultima roof window to check its water tightness.
