If you are in the process of replacing your Brampton, ON home windows, you may have come across the term “fusion welded”. Not sure what that means? Don’t worry, because you’re not alone. Here at Brock Doors and Windows, we believe that homeowners should be educated about the options available for their homes. After all, the more you know, the better decisions you can make, right? This article from Brock Doors and Windows explains fusion welding and how it can benefit your windows replacement project.
What is Fusion Welding, Anyway?
Fusion welding is a welding process where two objects are melted and connected together. For example, two wires can be connected by heating the ends of both wires. Then, using a blowtorch, metal solder is melted to bind the wires together. Not only did fusion welding play a key part in the making of modern civilization, but it is an important technology for maintaining it as well. It’s no wonder, though, because of the huge role fusion welding holds in the construction industry. No other method (without bolts or rivets) can fasten two pieces of metal together as securely as fusion welding. Fusion welding is used to manufacture useful items that many of us use every single day. From airplanes to vinyl window frames, fusion welding is a common, durable, and dependable means of construction.
Why Should Fusion Welding Matter to Me?
So now that you know a little about fusion welding, how can it help you with your window replacement project? Look no further than the corners of your windows. The corners of your vinyl windows speak volumes about how they will perform-both newly installed and into the future. Fusion welding basically fuses the corners of the window frame together. This creates a remarkably strong and durable joint that is nearly impossible to break or separate. Whether your windows are fusion welded or not can actually tell you a lot about the quality of the brand you are choosing. The alternative to fusion welded frame corners are frames that have been either screwed together, or chemically welded. While these frames will most likely function perfectly fine at first, they develop leaks over time. So remember, fusion-welded frames are the way to go! If the manufacturer has window corners that have fastened any other way besides fusion welding, it’s probably a good idea to steer clear.
