PVC windows, due to their numerous advantages, are very popular. Among the undoubted advantages of this type of products is the resistance of profiles to weather conditions. It also applies to colour profiles. In their case, a suitable service life is provided by decorative films, which not only look good, but also perform a protective function.
Proper functioning of PVC windows
Modern windows, despite many years of use, almost show no signs of aging. Long-term durability applies to both the profile material and the gaskets . Importantly, it can be seen not only in the case of white windows. Modern decorative films, used primarily to provide the windows of the selected color, retain their proper appearance for a very long time.
How do weather conditions affect windows?
The window should function properly regardless of the weather conditions. If this element is exposed to sunlight, a temperature difference occurs between the outer and inner sides of the structure. For colored profiles, it can be up to tens of degrees Celsius – dark elements absorb radiation, which makes them heat up much more than white profiles. As the temperature increases, the materials increase their length or volume (the phenomenon of thermal expansion). As the outer part of the profile heats up from the sun, it lengthens more than the part located on the side of the room. Therefore, unfavorable thermal stresses are created. They can be reduced with suitable decorative films. This is especially important in structures with very good thermalinsulation, where the outer part of the profile cannot transfer part of the heat to a part closer to the interior. It is in such windows that the greatest temperature difference between the inner and outer sides can be noted.
What is the function of decorative films?
Decorative films are used m.in. to obtain a profile color that meets the customer’s expectations. These elements are also used to protect the structure from solar radiation. High-quality products not only retain their color for many years, but also protect the profile from overheating. This prevents unwanted structure stresses.
Decorative films in MS more than WINDOWS
In MS more than WINDOWS, high-quality decorative films are used, thanks to which the design not only looks good, but also does not overheat due to the influence of sunlight. Among the products used are Renolit films with SST thermal protection technology. By reflecting infrared radiation, they reduce the temperature difference between the inner and outer parts of the profile. In addition, MS products more than WINDOWS are equipped with Continental films(hornschuch brand). This company uses m.in. cool colors and cool colors PLUS. Thanks to these solutions, the profiles are protected against excessive heating due to the influence of solar radiation. Cool colors PLUS is a development of cool colors technology – it is distinguished by a three-layer structure. Examples of external films, available in ms offer more than WINDOWS, are as follows:
