At Fibertec Windows and Doors Manufacturing many of our clients ask us what is fiberglass and what is it used for. Fiberglass is a paintable surface that acts as a self-sealer. It offers protection from moisture and pollutants, and provides ease of cleaning.
The benefits of fiberglass include:
- Excellent resistance to corrosion and/or rotting
- Dimensionally stable tolerances and consistent quality
- Low maintenance
- Self-extinguishing capabilities in case of a fire
- Impervious to termites and pests
Fiberglass surpasses all levels of performance being the best materials used in window frame manufacturing. It resists wrapping, twisting and cracking and cuts down on the structural degradation of the window and does not emit any gases or fuels. It is important to note that fiberglass is resistant to heat, cold and moisture penetration. In comparison to wood, vinyl, or aluminum, fiberglass ensures the superior life expectancy due to its durability.
