Window profiles are produced according to EN 12608 SR (Europe) and GOST 30673-99 (Russia). According to the main indicators, they are almost identical. The main parameters are the thickness of the walls of the outer contour and internal partitions. According to these indicators, the profile is divided into three types - "A", "B" and "C".

For an apartment window in a big city, it makes sense to consider at least a three-chamber profile. For rooms located on high floors, apartments with a poorly functioning heating system, and rooms overlooking highways and multi-lane avenues, five- and six-chamber designs are suitable.

Wooden frames need periodic updating of the paintwork, maintenance of PVC windows is not required. And plastic windows are easier to clean than wooden ones.

Double glazing. When choosing a metal-plastic window, it is important to focus on the quality of a double-glazed window, which differs in: the number of glasses (respectively, the more of them, the more reliable the noise insulation and the higher the energy saving; the best option is a two-chamber option); type of glass (manufacturers offer various options, including incandescent and energy-saving ones, be guided by your own individual needs when choosing).

Instead of standard glass, an impact-resistant triplex (two or more layers of glass with a polymer film fixed between them), glass with a multilayer coating that blocks part of the sun's rays can be installed in a double-glazed window.

PVC profile device for windows, Seal., U-shaped reinforcement., Bead with seal., Chambers with profile., Seal., Square reinforcement.

Silicone The most resistant of all sealants. It does not give in to abrasion, is indifferent to frost and heat, is sufficiently resistant to the chemical components of urban air and detergents. But its price exceeds TPE and it is quite difficult to buy it, except to order it from a company that sells and installs metal-plastic windows and doors.

The dimensions of double-glazed windows (glass thickness) also affect the final characteristics of the entire structure. Noise protection will be higher if the outer glass is thicker than the others.

Important! The reliability of the entire structure depends on the type of profile. They are made of PVC and at first glance look the same. Thermal insulation is provided by internal air chambers, and metal reinforcement guarantees strength. The higher the profile class, the greater the thickness of the outer wall.

What you need to know when choosing a double-glazed window Double-glazed window is 70% of the entire window. In a PVC double-glazed window, the glasses are rigidly fixed, there is a special spacer between them so that the windows are strictly parallel to each other. Sometimes a moisture-absorbing material, silica gel, is placed inside.
