All profiles in exprof windows are equipped with reinforcing inserts with a thickness of 1.5 to 2 mm and have a protective zinc coating. Double-glazed window The main characteristics of the element: the thickness of the double-glazed window, the number of glasses and, accordingly, the chambers between the glasses, the presence of special glasses with heat-shielding coating.
Decorated and white windows differ in a number of mechanical indicators. The laminated frame, especially in dark colors, is more heated by the sun. This necessitates the mandatory reinforcement of the profile, regardless of the size of the structure.
number of chambers in double-glazed windows A single-chamber double-glazed window is more suitable for regions located in a subtropical and temperate climate, houses located in quiet neighborhoods. A double-glazed window is the best choice with the best heat and sound insulation characteristics (provided that the profile is chosen correctly), a universal option for both city apartments and private houses, it can be used not only in temperate, but also in subarctic climates
Disadvantages and the issue of environmental friendliness The frames of plastic windows have one significant drawback - non-repairability. Scratches, scuffs and other surface damage cannot be repaired on plastic. However, plastic is much harder than wood, and it is more difficult to scratch it during operation.
The main characteristics of plastic windows To know which plastic windows to choose, determine the important characteristics of each structural element. Choosing a profile for PVC windows and double-glazed windows in accordance with the climatic features of the living area, the location of the house and apartment will help to acquire a high-quality and warm design that will last for decades. Consider the types of components in more detail.
The window sill and slopes are not structural elements of the window block and are decorative details. Design features of Exprof windows Correct plastic windows must be equipped with a ventilation mechanism to ensure a constant supply of fresh air into the room, an optimal level of humidity and a healthy microclimate. The frame of exprof Aero breathable windows has a built-in ventilation chamber designed to let in and heat air from the outside while maintaining tightness, heat and noise insulation of the structure.
Choosing a PVC window seal Tightness is one of the mainof plastic windows. It is achieved by using special sealing elements that are laid around the perimeter of the doors and prevent the penetration of moisture and cold from the street and the escape of heat from the side of the house. In addition to these functions, the seal is also a good sound insulator, not inferior in terms of sound reduction to the best double-glazed windows.
Intra-profile ventilation of PVC windows The method of ventilation of a room with closed sashes can be implemented in different ways. Some manufacturers install a slotted, folded or overhead ventilation valve in the PVC profile.
Plastic windows do not surprise anyone now, they are installed almost everywhere - from shops and offices to luxury apartments and three-story mansions. But their quality is completely different. If at the beginning of their “biography” plastic windows were exotic structures that looked like a degraded version of serial wooden ones, as they say, “soviet”, and practically equaled them in quality, then at a price they clearly went into the premium segment. But in the process of technological development, they have turned into a completely competitive tovary, which has a number of unique properties.
EPDM seal Ethylene propylene rubber seal is also a fairly durable material, which, moreover, is cheaper than silicone. It can be found on the windows of the middle and highest price categories, or you can buy it yourself. True, it is not easy to replace it yourself, it is better to call the master.
