And today, "artisans" manufacture counterfeit, even for technically sophisticated products: for example, plastic windows. By buying them should be approached thoughtfully and knowledgeably. Is to be feared-by-night companies. They work in semi-artisan conditions, with serious violations of technology. For example, cutting and drilling of the profile are not carried out on high-precision machine tools, and using circular saws and hand drills.

Raises serious doubts and origin used in the production of materials. Clients usually insist that you only use high quality pvc profiles and accessories of any brand-name. In fact, window designs are made of materials not intended for use in living rooms, and sometimes rejected. The calculation is simple: fraudsters are confident that the buyer does not determine the origin of the eye make up the finished window. Unfortunately, this indeed the case. In the resulting window assembly is deteriorating rapidly: white plastic turning yellow in winter low-quality window freezes, and after a year or two deformed frame.

But there are a number of grounds on which the consumer can determine the "origin" made for him windows. "The production of pvc window profile (frame), it applied a special protective film. As a rule, it contains the manufacturer's logo. This is the easiest way to determine the profile of a manufactured unit. Any proprietary products are properly labeled. For example, if you look at rebate Profile proplex (surface of the leaf or frame on which hardware is installed), then You can find extruded figures for the article, the production date, shift number and the production line ", – says head of department on work with clients td propleks Rafik Alekperov. Often, the dominance of counterfeit forcing manufacturers to warn consumers directly from defective purchases. Known precedent in 2004 when the German company Honeywell delivered a letter of information about the fakes have flooded the market filters water with the trademark of Honeywell. Counterfeit products sold much cheaper than the original and stated as "Chinese Honeywell. In a letter to the company recommended that customers rely on this feature of these filters, as a four-digit mark blue. When choosing sanitary specialists are also advised to pay attention to the markings do not become the owner of a fake: for example, ball valves, the Italian firm Bugatti. A characteristic feature of genuine goods – tangible weight because they use forged brass. Although the craftsmen get the hand "catch up" and the weight of fakes, putting them over time, the rusting steel bearings. Thus, vigilance – best means of protection against counterfeiting. Should peruse the resources available in advance and call for help authoritative experts, than to analyze a heap of problems and try to find the truth. Without much, however, hopes for success. "If a question arises about the quality of materials and the prospect of litigation with the seller of goods or the executor of works, the consumer should apply to the establishment of an expert for an opinion on As the goods or works. And then with the conclusions of experts to go to court ", – says Oleg Zaitsev, Senior Associate gc Krikunov and partners." "In a case the court is guided guests as mandatory standards, which must comply with all construction companies – says Alina Domkina, a member of the Inter-Regional Bar Association in Moscow. – And if the independent review showed that the defect (or deficiency) arose from the breach appropriate norm, then the case is solved in favor of the consumer.
