UPVC windows are affordable, durable, insensitive to moisture, and have low conductivity. No surprise that this material is widely used in the construction industry.
When heated, UPVC is extremely flexible. Therefore, it facilitates the shaping of the frame, such as rounded and pointed arches. However, once this material is hardened it becomes very robust. The result is a weather-resistant and maintenance-free surface.
Our selection of UPVC windows are available in a classic white frame, with additional colour foils available upon request. Add mullions or Georgian bars for a traditional design.

Benefits of UPVC Windows
UPVC is a very flexible material and when heated, can be molded into many different extrusion patterns, providing for unique and custom design options. Examples of these custom windows would be the possibility of rounded or pointed arch designs, which are far more complex and expensive to achieve with materials such as wood or aluminum. Some European Triple Glazed Windows can also reach dimensions of more than 3 meters (close to 10 ft) in either height or width, demonstrating the material’s durability. These expansive size thresholds permit beautiful open views without having to segment the window into many smaller division units.
Due to UPVC Windows Frame molecular composition, their surface is insensitive to moisture, preventing material corrosion over time and creating a natural resistance to the collection of dust and dirt particles, requiring less frequent cleaning.
UPVC is inherently fire retardant as its high chlorine content acts as a natural flame retardant, reducing its native combustibility. Unlike other building materials such as wood, UPVC is not only flame retardant but can be considered self-extinguishing.
Thermoplastic materials, such as UPVC, can be recycled at a low cost and with relatively little effort, generating a net environmental benefit. This means that in many years, when your UPVC windows will require replacing, you will be able to have them recycled and placed back into the production of other UPVC products, reducing the use of primary resources.
European UPVC windows are offered in a tilt and turn style that offers far better ventilation for your home as they can be both open inward for cleaning and tilted inward for draft-free air circulation, even when raining. German Tilt and Turn Windows are a great option as they have so much versatility for your home and you know you’re getting a high-quality product.
Certain European UPVC Window Models, particularly those that include triple glazing, offer superior security standards via thicker glass, additional glass layers, and 4-sided interlocking mechanisms that make it near impossible to pry the window open. These security features are offered on specific UPVC Tilt and Turn Windows, providing extraordinary functionality, all within one framed unit.
Both the window frame and the glass unit contribute to the overall isomerization of a window. UPVC and triple pane windows can offer a sound reduction of up to 47 decibels, which can greatly impact the likelihood of environmental noise pollution such as airplane flyovers, lawnmowers, highway traffic, etc.
High-performance windows can last a very long time. While different manufacturers vary in their estimates, everyone agrees that UPVC is uniquely designed to outlast many other building materials, such as wood as it does not rot, warp, peel, or chip.
UPVC is often used when energy-efficient windows are required for building projects, including passive house projects. This is due to its exceptional thermal insulation in triple glazing models. Certain UPVC windows can achieve U-values of 0.62 W/m2K, making them twice as effective as the base Canadian Energy Star requirements for windows. It is important to note that double-glazed UPVC windows rarely achieve this level of energy efficiency.
UPVC, being naturally resistant to moisture, provides the benefit of holding up well against harsh climates and weather conditions such as rain, snow, and ice. This resistance helps to ensure long-term durability.

UPVC windows offer durability, energy efficiency, flame retardance, and soundproofing and are made from an easily recyclable material with a low carbon footprint.
PVC has been banned in Europe and all toy products in the United States due to its toxic properties. UPVC, the “U” standing for “unplasticized”, is a safer product that does not cause the same harmful effects to the environment and does not release the same toxic fumes as PVC when exposed to high temperatures.
