History of plastic constructions
Modern double-glazed unit has got double sealing. This technology was developed and implemented in 1970, but UPVC windows began to conquer the world years earlier. Since the advent of polyvinyl chloride (PVC – a synthetic polymer that is used for windows and doors production), there have been constant attempts to implement it into industrial production, including windows. The first window factory and the first UPVC window frames appeared in the 1950s of the last century. Within ten years, a lot of UPVC window factories have opened in Europe and America, and their popularity has been increasing from year to year. In Ukraine, the possibility of installing PVC windows and doors appeared in the 1990s. Initially, they were used to equip greenhouses, but gradually their field of application has expanded. In a few years, UPVC constructions have almost replaced wooden ones in production, offices and apartments.
The first window factory in Ukraine was built more than ten years ago. Gradually, the number of window manufacturers has increased, and windows from the manufacturer became more available. Today, UPVC constructions are present in every house, as they are a decent and affordable alternative to wooden products. They are easy to install, varied in design, they retain heat very well, have sound insulation properties and are relatively cheap. Their operational lifetime can significantly exceed the operational lifetime of wooden products. Due to this, more and more of our fellow citizens have UPVC windows and doors in their homes.

UPVS constructions are resistant to the environment: they are not affected by moisture, temperature changes, as well as very high and low temperatures for a long time. All these qualities are very actual for our climate, as well as the ability to prevent cold air penetrating inside the room in winter. Plastic windows from the manufacturer handle this much better than wooden ones. Thanks to a high-quality seal and proper installation, they do not need additional insulation for the winter. Plastic is quite easy to care. UPVC windows and doors do not need to be painted, they are easy to clean and retain their attractive appearance for a long time.
