Window construction and its main features

Joanna Borowska


The windows are located in every residential building and fulfill very important tasks responsible for its proper functioning. Their most important features are thermal and acoustic insulation, tightness, and daylight permeability. This article will describe the main structural elements of the window, as well as the materials from which they are most often made and their thermal properties. Specialized coatings produced on glass and additional elements that will improve the thermal insulation of the window will also be characterized.
