What is a uPVC Double Glazed Window?
uPVC is a by-product of PVC, one of the most widely manufactured synthetic plastic polymer in the world. PVC provides high flexibility, however not durable enough for applications where a load-bearing capacity is required. Consequently, uPVC was developed to produce an improved and durable rigid form of PVC.
uPVC retains the cost-efficient properties of PVC. With its ability to meet critical infrastructure, high-quality insulation, superior build and safety needs, uPVC is the in-demand material of choice for the production of window frames, fascias and door assemblies for residential and commercial applications.
Double glazing is a special process taking insulation to the next level. It involves the use of two insulated glass panes, put together with an optimal 20mm-wide air gap that acts as a barrier against heat transfer. Double glazing works well with uPVC since it provides a larger air gap compared to conventional window materials like aluminium frames and timber.
