Warm Cold Glazing

However, all of them can be divided into two types: the "cold" and "warm." Let's see how they differ. "Warm" is the name balcony glazing plastic glass. They have several advantages, but not always profitable. Sealed windows do not let the cold air and the loggia is much warmer. This option is suitable when you need to create a specific microclimate on the balcony, for example, to grow flowers.

But if you're going to use the balcony as a dwelling, you can not rely on plastic glazing glass. You will need additional spending – a complex finish, wall insulation, top and bottom plates, summing up the wiring and heating. In plastic window has some disadvantages: they reduce the light opening, and in the adjoining room is darkened. In addition, in summer, on the balcony of this can be very hot, so it is important establish not deaf, and opening doors. Then you will have the opportunity to ventilate in the heat. But these deficiencies deprived of a "cold" glass, which is a sliding aluminum structures.

The only drawback of aluminum loggia – an inability to keep warm. Otherwise, they are very easy to use: sliding doors are easy to clean, open, ventilate the room. On this balcony will never be stuffy or dark – aluminum, unlike plastic, does not narrow the gap of the light room. In addition, the doors parted to the side with the roller mechanism – quickly and conveniently, and not clutter up the space of a balcony. But the dinner or drinking tea on a balcony in the winter is not possible, especially in freezing weather – the temperature on the balcony only a few degrees higher than outdoor. And the "warm" and "cold" glass has its pluses and minuses. Decide how you planning to use the loggia – a hothouse flower, a living room, terrace or simply as a convenient addition to the apartment. And depending on it, choose the type of glazing that will suit you to the destination.
