The quality of ready product – a window – depends on many components, one of which is a profile. This is an important component, but not the main one, when choosing a window. The window is not assembled in home conditions like a construction set. The quality, continuous life time, and comfort of using it by the customer depend on many factors.

Taking into consideration into which room a window is to be chosen, where the house is situated, which are requirements for energy saving and putting out noises etc., the specialists select materials and components for production of namely your window. One of the many materials is a window profile. And the right choice of materials is the third part of the way to getting a high-quality window.

Another one-third is choosing the manufacturer of construction. Because that is from the plant where the ready product comes out which practically is not subject to remaking. Therefore correct making a window is the second step to the high-quality window.

When choosing a profile for the window, special features of climate conditions, level of street noises, dimensions of construction, its design and opening type should be taken into consideration. In this question, the best thing is to consider advices of an experienced manager. Main characteristics of profile systems are energy saving and rigidity. The wider a profile is, the bigger its size is, the warmer it is. The shape and thickness of internal reinforcement, and also geometry of internal partitions provide rigidity of the profile, and consequently the rigidity of the window construction.

The plant “Continent-Windows” produces windows and doors of PVC and aluminum. The plant has the choice of six types of window profile systems of PVC. The difference between a window profile and a door profile with the same name consists only in geometry of cutting of a profile system. Energy saving, sound-insulating and other features remain the same.

Optimal place for using construction Optimal place for using construction    Exit form the house to heated or unheated terrace, to the garden, to the swimming pools. Indispensable in cases when serious heat insulation of very large aperture is required Exit from the house to balcony or in the interior. Alternative to wing window or ordinary door. Used if economy of space  for wide opening required Used if serious protection against harmful impacts and if a large aperture is to be opened and there is no space for big leaves of sliding systems to move back. For example, exit from the house  to terrace Exit to heated veranda. Glazing of balconies, loggias, terraces, winter gardens. Very large constructions can be made In the interior Used if average protection against outside impacts required (exit to winter garden, to heated terrace) and if a large aperture is to be opened, and there is no space for large leaves to move back, or maximal field of view is to be profided!
