The bal­cony is one of the most dif­fi­cult places in the apart­ment. For full use, it must be glazed — oth­er­wise, for sev­er­al months a year it will sim­ply be inac­ces­si­ble due to frost and snow, and it will not work to cre­ate any cozy cor­ner on it.

The Sophos Win­dows com­pa­ny, which has been man­u­fac­tur­ing and installing win­dow sys­tems for twen­ty-five years, offers its cus­tomers glaz­ing of bal­conies and log­gias using alu­minum or plas­tic frames. What fea­tures does each option have?

What to choose for a bal­cony — alu­minum or PVC win­dows?

When choos­ing a mate­r­i­al, you need to decide what kind of goal you are pur­su­ing in the end. Con­ven­tion­al­ly, the glaz­ing of log­gias and bal­conies is divid­ed into two cat­e­gories — insu­lat­ed or “cold”.

  • An insu­lat­ed bal­cony can play the role of a full-fledged addi­tion­al room — even in win­ter it will be pos­si­ble to relax on it with plea­sure. Usu­al­ly in the process of such work, plas­tic win­dows are used. How­ev­er, it must be borne in mind that mak­ing a warm bal­cony is more expen­sive and more dif­fi­cult, besides, not all struc­tures are designed for the instal­la­tion of heavy insu­la­tion mate­ri­als and dou­ble-glazed win­dows.

  • A “cold” bal­cony will be pro­tect­ed main­ly from damp­ness and wind, but the tem­per­a­ture on it in win­ter will still drop very much. How­ev­er, fur­ni­ture and things on a cold-glazed bal­cony will remain safe, they will not have to be removed. With such glaz­ing, dou­ble-glazed win­dows with alu­minum frames are used and no addi­tion­al insu­la­tion is installed — the design is lighter, cheap­er and more afford­able, and it is very con­ve­nient to use.

Sophos Win­dows can car­ry out glaz­ing accord­ing to both of the pre­sent­ed options — the choice depends only on the wish­es and capa­bil­i­ties of the cus­tomer. How­ev­er, the most pop­u­lar is inex­pen­sive and fast alu­minum glaz­ing.

Alu­minum dou­ble-glazed win­dows — a uni­ver­sal solu­tion for the home

Speak­ing of alu­minum win­dows, one can­not fail to men­tion alu­minum glass doors- anoth­er inter­est­ing solu­tion for the house.

Inte­ri­or doors often reduce space too much, reduce the lev­el of nat­ur­al light. Glass doors with alu­minum frames give the house a very styl­ish look and make it sev­er­al times more spa­cious — and since alu­minum is very light, such doors are eas­i­ly mount­ed into open­ings. Okna Sophos is ready to take on the exe­cu­tion of the project and the direct instal­la­tion of doors — you can see exam­ples of work in the com­pa­ny’s gallery.
