windows (also referred to as PVC-u windows) are a popular
alternative to traditional windows. They are sturdy and stylish.The
'u' in uPVC stands for 'unplasticised', a rigid form of PVC
that lasts so long it gives the product a lifetime service
life. uPVC windows are able to withstand high surface temperatures
of up to 82oC without defects. This means that long term sunny
conditions do not cause the profile structure to break or
deteriorate in quality, throughout the life time of your windows.
uPVC windows have multi-point locking mechanisms that are
integrated inside the profiles systems. Lockable handles are
available on both the windows as well as the doors. The material
that uPVC windows are made from, is non-combustible, due to
its high chlorine concentration, and the use of appropriate
compounds. The profile colour will not turn yellow or fade
after a few years of use. Frequent cleaning of the windows
is possible without any repainting throughout the useful life
of the frame, so the maintenance cost is low in upvc compared
Window Profile Systems Consist of Polyvinyl-Chloride, Stabilizer,
Titanium Dioxide (7%) etc. in order to withstand various kinds
of weather condition, ultraviolet rays and rapidly changing
weather while the frame structure can slightly expand or contract.
uPVC profile systems can accommodate any type of glass –
including intruder resistant as well as bullet resistant glass.
Together with the steel enforced frames, these window and
door systems are among the most secure in the world.
Systems employ a corner welding process to ensure that the
window or door corner is completely welded into a single structure;
therefore, water is unable to pass through the welded joint.
Additionally a double layer of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer)
rubber gasket is placed around the sash and the frame to efficiently
seal the gap.
with high pollution levels uPVC Windows Systems can withstand
any corrosion caused by such conditions.Even in beach area
residencies, humid weather is unable to corrode, or damage
PVC Windows Profiles.
Profile Systems are made from ecologically friendly materials
(60% rock salt) in terms of less pollutant emissions than
wood and aluminium.
windows (also referred to as PVC-u windows) are good insulators,
require low maintenance, and are very cost effective. UPVC
windows are a popular alternative to traditional windows.
They are sturdy and stylish, and will not warp, twist, rot
is also a hardwearing material, regardless of the elements,
and is normally waterproof which will prevent damp and maintain
insulation regardless of the conditions outside. Whereas many
other windows will absorb rain water, UPVC windows simply
repel the elements to keep buildings warm and to keep the
cold weather conditions outside. Additionally this means that
a UPVC window is likely to have a long life expectancy, leaving
you with a less frequent need to replace your windows.
