10 Benefits of uPVC Windows and Doors

uPVC Windows and Doors although new to Australian market, this product has been well established in America and Europe. Also well known as "vinyl" windows and doors this sturdy products are popular due to their durability and low maintenance. UPVC windows and doors can withstand extreme of weathers without chipping, corroding, peeling or flaking.

Here are key benefits why you should consider uPVC on your house renovation:

Low Maintenance

With the durability and sturdiness of these products you might think that maintaining it may be a pain, think again. UPVC products are made from 'unplasticised' form of PVC that does not require painting making it low in maintenance. It is easy to clean with detergent and water (you wouldn't worry about accidentally scrapping of the paint).

Rot Resistant

UPVC products are very resilient, it is rot and corrosion resistant (including salt corrosion) which makes this suitable for houses close to the oceaan.

Thermal Comfort

Non-conductive material, uPVC window and door frames does not transfer heat therefore conserves energy by contributing to the consistent temperature for a building. Combining uPVC frames and double glazing would create a great combo for highly energy efficient homes.

Openable Tilt and Turn

Opening in two directions, uPVC window system allow you to enhance the ability to take advantage of natural cross ventilation.

Acoustic Insulation

With the use of double glazed glass, this would reduce outdoor noises to 70%.

Resistant to Salt Erosion

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

Bushfire Resistance

Double glazed uPVC windows can be used in Australia in areas where risk is zoned as Bushfire Attack Level 29kW/m2 (BAL 29). Some uPVC windows have been tested to withstand BAL 40.

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.


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 Australia, Australian 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.
