When it comes to home renovations, the choices you make for double glazed windows and doors can do more than add that extra aesthetic appeal. There are different materials that you can choose, the most common ones are uPVC, wood and aluminum. Of the three, uPVC has not been getting as much attention despite the fact that it has been used in making windows and doors for decades. Let’s shine a spotlight on this material so that next time, when you have a building project requiring the installation of windows you can make an informed choice.
uPVC doors and windows
Unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) had been used in the building industry since the 70’s. uPVC superior window frames can outlast and out-perform alternative materials like aluminium and wood which can corrode from exposure to weather and pollution. uPVC can be formulated to resist fading in extreme climates by having large quantities of TiO2 stabilisers.
uPVC window frames have excellent thermal performance. The insulation airspace’s that have been specially designed for uPVC vinyl windows and door frames and their low heat conductivity, create an impressively formidable barrier to heat transfer. This means that you can keep cool air tightly sealed within your home reducing the work your air conditioner has to do. You conserve energy and save money on electricity bills.
