uPVC stands for Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride. It is a form of plastic that is hard and inflexible, which is why it is also known as rigid PVC. The reason behind uPVC’s popularity among both homeowners and designers is because of the benefits that it provides.
Easy to Maintain
uPVC is a material that doesn’t rot, flake, peel or corrode even after years of usage. All it requires is a gentle wipe with a clean cloth dipped in a solution of household cleaner and water to clean and maintain the freshness of uPVC frame.
Thermal and Acoustic-Insulation
uPVC windows, when paired with double-glazed glass, can provide excellent thermal insulation and can keep your home warmer during the winter months and cooler during the summers. Along with this, double-glazing glass paired with uPVC windows can also insulate against outside noise. Outside noise can be a huge issue, especially if you live near a busy street, which is why uPVC windows with double-glazed glass become an important addition to your home.
Energy-Efficient and Eco-Friendly
By installing low-E or low-emissivity glass panes sealed with special silicone sealants in your uPVC window, you will be able to create an energy-saving zone. Low-E glass is a double-glazed glass that reflects the sun’s heat away during summers and can trap interior heat during winters. This will ensure ideal indoor temperature and can reduce your usage of heating and cooling systems. This will, in turn, lead to reduced monthly energy bills. This will also stay protected against the harmful rays of the sun. Along with being a more energy-efficient choice, uPVC is also intrinsically non-toxic, making it an environment-conscious decision.
As uPVC is a highly durable material, it is dust-proof, termite-proof, moisture, and weather-resistant. uPVC can also protect you and your loved ones from harmful UV rays of the sun. As a result, they stand the test of time and usage without losing their charm.
uPVC windows designs generally come with multi-point locking systems that render a high level of security to your property. Moreover, uPVC windows have galvanized steel cores, which are very difficult to break, thereby adding another layer of protection.
