WOODEN WINDOWS ARE BETTER AT RESISTING FIRES
You may think that this statement makes no sense but allow me to explain.
With the recent high temperatures and fires all over Europe, it is imperative to find ways to keep your house protected from the heat.
Wood is known for being an excellent insulator, keeping the temperature of the house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, reducing your electricity bill.
It is a much better environmentally friendly material when compared to others such as plastic, and metal. When one tree is cut, all it takes is to plant others so that we may have an infinite source of material.
But do you know it also can stand against fire better than other commonly used materials?
While wooden windows withstand temperatures of up to 200 degrees, PVC windows change their shape at 110 degrees and release toxic vapors when they melt.
Wood can char the surface, but the underlying wood is protected, while metal windows become unbearably hot at high temperatures and plastic deforms relatively quickly.
With special fire protection measures, wood and wood-aluminum windows can be made even more resistant and can withstand the flames for up to an hour without losing their function.
