Reinforcing profile PVC insert By itself, polyvinyl chloride, even modified with chemical additives, is not a very strong material mechanically, moreover, it is prone to thermal deformation. But in combination with metal inserts, its stability and resistance to mechanical stress increase by an order of magnitude. It is more reliable to fasten all the fittings to the metal, which is quite a lot in a modern window.

Most heat escapes through a double-glazed window, so you should pay close attention to it. Often, to improve the characteristics, silver ions are sprayed onto the surface or argon gas, which has low thermal conductivity, is pumped inside. As a result, such double-glazed windows are more expensive, but they also retain heat 1.5 times better than ordinary ones.

Choosing windows for a private house When answering the question of how to choose windows for a private house or cottage, one cannot fail to note the importance of having energy-saving qualities. To save on heat carriers in the winter season, it is necessary to give preference to multifunctional double-glazed windows. The chambers of such a window are filled with an inert gas.

Such a window will cost more than usual, but the costs will justify themselves in the first season.
Given the characteristics of glass as a material with a certain rigidity, spatial structures like double-glazed windows are distinguished by certain size restrictions. They can be within a minimum of 300mm on one side and in an aspect ratio of 5:1. But the maximum glazing area should not exceed 3 m2 in a single-chamber package with 4 mm thick glass and 4.2 m2 with 5 mm glass thickness.
