What are the Benefits of uPVC Windows?
There are a number of ways in which uPVC windows can benefit you and your home. Firstly, uPVC windows are low maintenance. The window frames don’t need painting or sealing which significantly reduces the maintenance required over their lifetime, uPVC windows are easily cleaned with soapy water. A key benefit of uPVC windows is that they don’t rot and are resistant to corrosion, this makes uPVC windows extremely long lasting. Unlike metals, uPVC is non-conductive, so your window frames will not transfer heat and contribute to a more consistent internal temperature for your home. Combining uPVC window frames and double glazing makes for highly energy efficient windows. uPVC windows provide excellent acoustic insulation. Double glazed uPVC windows can cut down noise by as much as 70%. Thanks to their integrated locking systems, uPVC windows provide a high level of security for your home. Most uPVC window locking systems lock at multiple points all around the sash and frame. Compared to aluminium and timber alternatives, uPVC windows are low cost. Prices can vary depending on the quality and features of the windows, but you can expect a much more affordable price by choosing a uPVC window.
How do you clean uPVC windows?
uPVC windows are a low-maintenance product that are easy to clean. The best way to clean a uPVC window is to open it as far as possible and remove any built-up dirt by vacuuming in every alcove - if your vacuum cleaner has a soft brush nozzle, use it to minimise the risk of scratching. Use a bucket of warm soapy water and a soft cloth to wipe down the window. avoid scouring pads as this would remove the glossy finish. You can remove the excess water to prevent streaking using a clean cloth, a chamois or a squeegee.
How are uPVC window frames made?
uPVC windows are made from section of frame, which is cut to length and joined together to form the shape of the window.
The frames are made by putting molten PVC through a moulding machine and it comes out the other end in long sections of frame which is cooled almost immediately before being cut to length. This makes the frame easy to work with.
The window frames are then made into windows and doors that have been cut to the correct size and joined together using heat based welding. Steel or aluminium lengths are then put inside to give it additional strength if required.
