Advantages of the Schuco PVC profile
Serbia is a country of great climate extremes. In 2018, after the main snow and icy March, the hottest April was followed in the history of temperature measurements (over 160 years). In the northern parts of the country during the winter and spring, almost every day is a boom. In such a climate it is extremely important to isolate objects from external influences. A quality window, such as the one made of the Schuco profile, has to have two properties: it provides active protection from outside temperature extremes, as well as to prevent the entry of air from the wind blow into the interior of the building. In addition, it should be durable, to serve at least a few decades, justifying its slightly higher price.
The PVC profile is a key determinant of the quality of PVC joinery. In addition, the quality of the windows itself is equally important. However, while a quality window of a quality profile ensures superior insulation and protective properties, it is not possible to make such a quality window from a non-high quality profile, regardless of the quality of the windows.
How to recognize a good PVC profile?
In order to distinguish a quality PVC profile from the other, it is not necessary for you to be a graduate. Eng. construction, or carpentry. All you need to know is these few rules.
WEIGHT AND PROFILE TREATMENT
The insulation property, as well as the firmness of a PVC element, depends on its thickness. Since PVC is relatively lightweight, it is easy to notice the difference in weight between a quality and a non-quality profile. All quality profiles are broader, and therefore it strives for those lower classes. A harder profile can also be made of thicker and stronger elements that provide better isolation, are firmer and durable. Although windows of such profiles are more expensive, this investment returns through lower costs for electricity and heat and longer intervals of replacement of external joinery.
The thickness of the profile also affects the quality of the window itself, because it is easier for editors to merge elements from a more solid material. The production itself is lighter and more precise, and also the installation of such a window in the window.
The thickness of the bulkhead and outer walls of the profile is a very important determinant of quality divided into three categories.
- A class – the minimum thickness of the visible pages is 2.8 mm, while the thickness of the invisible is at least 2.5 mm
- B class – the minimum thickness of visible pages is 2.5 mm, while the thickness is invisible at least 2 mm.
- C class – all profiles that do not meet both B class criteria.
NUMBER OF CHAMBERS
This is probably the most commonly used criterion for selecting PVC joinery. Air chambers are spaces inside the profile, separated by plastic bulkheads. The number of chambers in the profile is easy to determine. You simply need to count the cavities horizontally from one to the other edge of the profile. The chambers are visibly different in size, as this ensures the best thermal insulation properties and durability.
However, the number of chambers does not say enough about the quality of that profile. It is also necessary to take into account the weight as well as the overall width of the profile itself. In our market, many profiles and a range of quality are sold and the price is very high, so it is not uncommon for the five-chamber profile to provide much better insulation properties than those with seven or eight chambers.
Although PVC has many advantages over other materials used in carpentry making, it is not perfect material. This polymer is prone to deformation due to sudden temperature changes, such as those in the first half of 2018. Also, PVC can also be deformed by long-lasting mechanical pressure, caused by the weight of the window glass. Because of this, every better quality profile has metal reinforcement or reinforcement – most of all steel. This reinforcement ensures the durability and toughness of both the profile itself and the construction of the window, the door.
CHOOSE YOUR PROFILE TODAY – SCHUCO SERBIA
The easiest way to ensure the quality of windows and doors on your buildings is to select those made from the profile of a renowned manufacturer such as Schüco’s German.
Schüco, founded in 1951, is one of the oldest German manufacturers of modern carpentry profiles. In the early 1980s, the first production of PVC profiles began. Since then, there has been a constant investment in quality improvement, so Schucco PVC profiles are globally recognized as the benchmark of quality in their industry. All Schuco profiles are manufactured in Germany and undergo rigorous quality control.
SELECTION OF PVC MANUFACTURERS
In order to ensure the ultimate isolation of your building, besides the choice of top quality PVC profiles, it is also necessary to choose the top carpenter.
