Specialised uPVC Sliding Doors

 

specialised upvc sliding doorsLeading industry experts recommend Wilkins Windows for specialised uPVC sliding doors for both residential and commercial applications. For nearly two decades, Wilkins Windows has been a recognised leader in the window and door manufacturing sector in Australia. The New South Wales based company continues to establish a stronger presence across the country with an ever-growing catalogue of solutions and services.

What is uPVC?

Also known as vinyl sliding, unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) is derived from widely produced PVC. Known for its flexibility and user safety, PVC was not exactly the most durable building material of its kind. Hence, uPVC was developed by removing plasticisers during production. The result is a rigid form of PVC that provides superior dimensional stability, while still adequately retaining its cost-effective properties.

Specialised uPVC Sliding Doors

Wilkins Windows sources uPVC from Rehau ? German-based experts in polymer-based innovations and systems ? for the construction of their doors and windows. Rehau’s proprietary extrusion process results in maximum-performance uPVC in terms of insulation power, durability, cost and energy efficiency. Wilkins Windows harnesses these sought-after features to provide the best specialised uPVC sliding doors on the market.

uPVC sliding doors offer exceptional insulation of heat, energy, as well as sound. Wilkins Windows use Low-E (low emissivity) glass systems with microscopically thin metallic coatings that reflect heat back into the room. With uPVC sliding doors, users can prevent heat from escaping through the panels, thereby maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures all year long. Noise reduction ? rated to 45 dBA (A-weighted decibels), in accordance with the Sydney and Adelaide Aircraft Noise Insulation Projects ? contribute to a relaxed ambience. In addition, the sliding profile allows the user to control the door opening, so only the minimum amount of heat is allowed to escape. In action, uPVC sliding doors lead to remarkable reductions in heating and cooling costs.

The production team at Wilkins Windows have streamlined the manufacturing process to result in uPVC that never rots, fades, rusts or flakes. The frames of uPVC sliding doors are highly resistant to hard, long-term wear, making them virtually burglar-proof. Along with outstanding weatherproofing features, these characteristics ensure longevity in service, and safety and security of property.

Maintenance of uPVC sliding doors by Wilkins Windows only requires a quick wipe with a cloth, effectively minimising costs, time and effort. The assemblies are built to last approximately 30-40 years, which is twice as long as the 15-20 year lifespan of traditional aluminium doors.
