Extrusion of plastic window and building construction profilesPlastic window and building construction profiles – sustainable and energy-efficient
Due to sharply rising energy costs and the necessity and obligation to reduce CO2 emissions, existing older houses and residential buildings have to be modernized. In Germany, for example, about 75% of existing residential buildings are more than 30 years old. Moreover, there is still considerable pent-up demand for the equipment of new buildings with plastic windows in Eastern Europe and the CIS countries. Worldwide, about 500 million windows are sold annually. The main sales markets are Asia (50%), Europe (30%) and North America (20%). In the development of windows and doors made of plastics, extruded hollow profiles play a vital part. Their invention dates back to the 1960s. Starting from the German-speaking countries, they went on to conquer the UK, the Benelux countries and France, and in the last 20 years Eastern Europe and Russia as well. In Western Europe, the market share of plastic windows is over 40%. But PVC windows also dominate the market in North America and China.
Plastic windows and doors are made exclusively from PVC-U. They offer an excellent price/performance ratio, are easy to install and have excellent heat and sound insulation properties. Compared to wood and aluminum windows, they are extremely durable, dimensionally stable and easy to clean. They are resistant to weathering and to chemicals. One decisive advantage of plastic windows is their great variety in color and design.
