What you need to know when choosing a window profile The window profile is the window itself, the frame where the double-glazed window is installed. Profile properties usually depend on the material of manufacture. As a rule, this is polyvinyl chloride (PVC), there are also aluminum and wooden windows. In PVC profiles, internal compartments are important, filled with air and sealed with plastic on all sides. Their purpose is the same as that of a double-glazed window: to retain cold with the help of low thermal conductivity. The more such chambers with voids (and the better they are arranged), the more efficiently the window will savebe your warmth.
Our calculator will help you not to overpay for unnecessary design improvements. Select the main parameters: city of residence, type of premises, floor, heating system power, noise level. Then you will be able to determine the most significant design parameters, choose the width and chamber profile, standard or energy-saving double-glazed windows, configuration (window block type, number of sashes, opening method), select accessories and evaluate the cost of additional services.
What does a plastic window consist of? Profile is the main element of a window block. Its purpose is to combine other components into a whole structure.
Good installation Consider, even if you have purchased a window with a bunch of bells and whistles, you may install it incorrectly, as a result of which all the saved heat will go into the gap between the profile and the wall. Specify the qualifications and experience of the installation team, as well as the measurer.
Even on dirty seals, it is not recommended to use organic or synthetic solvents. It is better to wash with warm water with neutral household detergents, dry well and lubricate. Of course, silicone oil and glycerin are not a panacea, but they can extend the life of seals by several years.
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.
PVC profile filled with polystyrene What affects the width of the profile The correct choice of plastic windows should be based on a comprehensive analysis of their parameters. One of the main ones is the width of the profile, in a professional language - the mounting depth. For standard windows, it is 50 - 80 mm. If the width of the frame barely reaches 60 mm, then there are no more than three cameras in it, and with a depth of up to 70 mm there are four or even 5.
Plastic can hardly be called an environmentally friendly material, but modern manufacturers have tried to make it as safe as possible for humans. In its manufacture today, components that are harmful to health are not used.
If you see that the glasses in the double-glazed window are not parallel to each other, you can no longer buy a window. The same applies to all kinds of seals: they should fit snugly against the glass, there should not be any gaps. Sometimes the distance bar inside is designed for three glasses, although there are only two of them in a double-glazed window - this also worsens the characteristics of the double-glazed window and reduces all heat retention by the window to zero.
The mounting thickness of the exprof Aero breathable window frame is 101 mm. This is the optimal size to ensure a high level of noise and heat insulation even for three-chamber profiles, as well as high-quality ventilation with closed doors.
