A window profile is a window frame or, in other words, a window bearing element installed along the perimeter of a window opening. A double-glazed window and window fittings are installed in the window profile.
Window profiles are made of wood, aluminum, steel and fiberglass, but in this article we will talk about window profiles made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride).
