How Are uPVC Windows Made?

The frame is made up of two parts, the frame that fits into the window opening and the frame that holds the glass together. They are both made of uPVC which has many benefits over the old timber frames that they often replace. They are also much lower maintenance and will not flake, crack, or warp over time.

The Frame

The first thing to understand when answering the question of possibly replacing your current windows is that uPVC windows are made up of 3 elements.

Sealed Glass Unit

This is the soul of the uPVC window and consists of two or sometimes three panes of glass with a gap between them that is either a vacuum or is filled with dehydrated gas to reduce heat transfer and create an airtight sealed unit. A bar is put in place and this holds the glass a fixed distance apart and the sealant is then applied to hold the glass together to stop vapour entering the unit. Ventilation agent is combined into the spacer bar of the unit to capture any dampness that passes through the unit.

The Window Mechanism

The window instruments are the hinges, handles and locks that are attached to both the exterior border and the window edge itself. These also have a great life expectancy.

Advantages Of uPVC Windows

Park Lane Windows

Rot Resistant

uPVC does not rot and is resistant to corrosion.

Little Upkeep

uPVC windows are very low maintenance, the edges don’t require painting or coating which reduces the maintenance required over their lifetime by a considerable amount. They are easily cleaned with water and a damp cloth.

Thermal Comfort

uPVC is a non-conductive material meaning its use in the window frame does not hand over any heat and, consequently, contributes to a more consistent internal temperature for a property.

High Security

uPVC windows include a multi-locking system providing a very high level of safety in a home or business.
