How to choose the material of door and window frame?


It is said that "details determine success or failure", and the details of decoration can highlight the owner's taste and even personality.

Many people will focus on the selection of materials that occupy a large area, such as tiles, etc., but neglect the material of the door and window frames. In fact, in addition to decoration, the door and window frame, the "facade responsible", also carries important functions such as sound insulation and heat insulation.

Today, Baydee will bring you a comprehensive analysis of the common door and window frame materials on the market, and let you know how to choose at one time!

01. Wooden doors and windows

Wooden doors and windows have a unique texture that can make the house look warm, plus it is simple to make, easy to maintain, and has low thermal conductivity, which has been popular for many years.

However, the material of wooden doors and windows has the disadvantage of being easily deformed - thermal expansion and cold contraction lead to inconvenient opening and closing of doors and windows, easy to moth, easy to crack, and even a certain fire hazard. Considering the angle, it is not recommended to use wooden doors and windows.

02. Steel doors and windows

Steel doors and windows are durable, high-strength, and also have the characteristics of fire resistance and moisture resistance. However, in order to ensure the strength, steel doors and windows generally sacrifice light transmittance, and the cost performance is not high.

In addition, the thermal conductivity of steel doors and windows is large, it does not have strong thermal insulation and sealing properties, it is easy to corrode, and the problems of high production energy consumption also make it not recognized by many consumers.

03. uPVC windows

uPVC windows are a relatively new type of door and window material. Among the types of doors and windows today, plastic doors and windows with the best sealing performance have low thermal conductivity, strong thermal insulation, and strong moldability in appearance, which was once very popular.

However, uPVC profiles are inherently flimsy, so consumers have doubts about plastic doors and windows. In addition, my country also restricts the use of uPVC windows in high-rise buildings, and uPVC profiles will melt to a certain extent when encountering high temperatures.

04. FRP doors and windows

The advantages of glass fiber reinforced plastic doors and windows in terms of light weight, high strength, anti-corrosion, heat preservation, insulation, sound insulation and many other performances are gradually being recognized by people.

The doors and windows made of FRP profiles are not only strong, but also have the advantages of heat preservation, energy saving and sound insulation.

However, because it is a new type of material, the style is more industrialized, the cost is higher, and it is mostly used in large buildings, so the cost performance is low for most consumers.

05. Aluminum alloy doors and windows

Aluminum alloy doors and windows are one of the most popular door and window materials on the market. They are durable, fire-resistant and moisture-resistant, not easy to rust or corrode, and their sealing performance is also very good. Broken bridge aluminum profiles have improved aluminum alloy doors and windows to a certain extent. The originally weak thermal and sound insulation properties have also become the preferred door and window materials for consumers.
