Those who act out of external motives such as instant sensory pleasure or, immediate praise from their superior often end up behaving like monkeys. The monkey mind restlessly shifts from one external stimulus to another. Motivation endures when our motives are more intrinsic and less extrinsic. Intrinsic motivation ceases to be motivation; it becomes inspiration. Yet how many of us realise that “motive” - based action often makes monkey out of us? “I do not believe in motivation,” says the maverick president of one of the world’s most influential media houses. Why not ? “ Because any form of motivation makes me dependent whatever it is that motivates me.” Interesting, isn’t it ?~Timeless Leadership Book by Debashis Chatterjee
Why am i sharing this on a blog where purpose is to share Door/Window basics.. but it appears most of the Door/Window manufacturers are working on external motivation (e.g. more sales or, volume oriented approach ) than inner inspiration (e.g. value engineering ) to deliver a Quality Product or, create value to End-Customer.
I have spent more than 8 years in this industry and quite often seen the way this beautiful & high performance material is badly manufactured & installed subject to half baked knowledge as well as expertise of people in the industry. Please check below pics........
|Corner welding crack/air leakage|
|Gasket @ Left corner of frame improperly inserted|
|Top of the frame welded in middle|
|Middle mullion bend is visible|
|PU Foam has been inserted without knowledge of Frame/wall min. gap|
|Clearly shows installation team doesn't know How to take measurement & insert PU Foam.|
|Can You Believe it ! Windows has been cut @ site to insert into opening.|
|See the window frame cutting marks to fit into wall.|
Then how can customer make sure that these trials & errors will not occur on his/ her cost . Sadly India doesn't have any Door/ Window standardisation body to take action against any Door/window manufacturer. Internet in India is full of complaints stories shared by different customers.. Late delivery, Quality compromise, Poor Post- Sales services are few of examples....
Are we witnessing a new phenomenon worldwide in uPVC Door/ Window so unpredictable, consequences are happening fast. Is it ???
Unfortunately it is not true as uPVC Door/ Window is more than four decades old industry worldwide. Different countries has different Fenestration rating council e.g. U.S. has N.F.R.C.( National Fenestration Rating Council). What N.F.R.C. means for end customer- brilliantly explained in below video
Same manner,Britain has B.F.R.C.( British Fenestration Rating Council) & Germany as well as most of the Europe follows guidelines set by IFT, Rosenheim. Below pics on your Door/Window in Europe & Germany reassures Customer that You got High Quality Door/Window.
As written my earlier post “How to buy Door/Window in India” , Always look for Door/Window company recommended by uPVC Profile manufacturer company; Whole story is built around uPVC Profile. Always remember advertisements or, big factories or, showrooms don’t assure that Door/Window will be the High in performance & Quality if People are not skilled or, doesn't follow International Guidelines....
