uPVC Benefits

Low maintenance - uPVC window frames don't need painting or sealing, significantly reducing maintenance over their life time. They are easily cleaned with water and detergent.

Tough and durable - uPVC is a very durable material used in water and sewer pipes for at least 100 years. uPVC windows are so durable that the vast majority of them installed over the past 25 years are still in use. Good quality uPVC windows and doors are tested for ultra violet resistance to ensure they won't fade in the harsh Indian sun.

Rot resistant - uPVC does not rot, and is resistant to corrosion.

Thermal comfort - Unlike metals, uPVC is non-conductive, meaning its use in window frames does not transfer heat and therefore contributes to a more consistent internal temperature in a building. The combination of uPVC frames and double glazing makes for highly energy efficient windows.

Openable Tilt and Turn - uPVC window systems allow opening in two directions to enhance the ability of taking advantage of natural, cross ventilation.

Acoustic insulation - Double-glazed uPVC windows and doors are able to cut down noise by as much as 70%.

Resistant to salt erosion - uPVC is resistant to corrosion caused by salt-laden air making them ideal for coastal properties.

High security - uPVC windows incorporate multi locking systems providing a high level of security for homes or businesses. Most uPVC window locking systems lock at multiple points all around the sash and frame.

Recyclable - uPVC can be recycled as often as 10 times. Where they have been commonly used for the past 30 years, such as in Europe, uPVC windows and doors can be, and are, recycled at the end of life. Although very little end of life uPVC windows are presently available for recycling in India, Indian industry programs are committed to keeping uPVC out of landfills, putting it back into new products. The off-cuts from uPVC window fabrication are already being collected in some states for recycling.
