1. LOW MAINTENANCE
A simple wash with soapy water will keep uPVC frames looking new for decades. No need for sanding, repainting, or varnishing and if necessary, this tough material can be scrubbed to remove even the most stubborn of stains because uPVC windows and doors are hard to damage.
2. LONG LASTING
uPVC is naturally resistant to moisture, atmospheric pollution, mould, and mildew. It does not rot, rust, blister, or flake, and is not affected by salt corrosion. This makes uPVC windows and doors a long lasting alternative to timber and aluminium frames.
uPVC frames never rot or corrode and are unaffected by salt corrosion, making them perfect for coastal dwellers. They are highly durable and are UV resistant, as a result, they won’t fade in the unforgiving Australian sun.
When used in addition with double glazed windows, uPVC can reduce noise by up to 40 decibels or furthermore by almost 80%. As a result this will probably lead to a more peaceful home environment.
Up to 10 different locking points can be added to uPVC windows and doors. When used in conjunction with toughened safety/laminated glass, this would make it almost impossible for intruders to gain entry.
uPVC is a natural insulator and has low conductivity of heat. uPVC windows and doors insulate your home by keeping air sealed tightly within the system. As a result there is less reliance on air conditioning to regulate your home temperature. Therefore uPVC windows and doors conserve energy which also saves you money.
7. GOOD VENTILATION
uPVC windows and doors come in what is called a ‘Tilt and Turn’ configuration. This means the windows and doors open in two directions, allowing for optimal draft-free ventilation. Windows can tilt inwards, allowing outside air to be channelled through the sides of the window with hot air escaping through the top. Windows can also turn fully open, hence allowing for easy cleaning access inside your home.
8. FLAME RETARDANT
uPVC windows and doors are inured against heavy weather conditions and can be customised to the maximum ratings of N5 C4 (non-cyclonic and cyclonic) wind resistance and Flame Zone BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) fire resistance.
9. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
uPVC is a recyclable material and requires fewer resources than metal alternatives. It has a life span of 40 – 80 years and can be recycled into almost anything such as commercial floor tiles, pipes and fittings, plumbing pipes, roadside guideposts, and other applications. Companies like Envorinex in Tasmania recycle uPVC materials into new applications.
