Why UPVC Windows?
Bushfires Can’t Beat Our Windows!
Our uPVC windows and doors have inherent flame retardancy properties. The window profiles do not support combustion and are in fact self-extinguishing once a flame source is removed. One of the few homes to have survived the 2009 Marysville bushfire in Victoria, had uPVC windows, and PVC was extensively used in other parts of the home. The vinyl weatherboards and window frames escaped any significant damage and protected the house from ember attacks to the interior.
UPVC window frames have been developed and tested specifically to meet construction requirements for designated Bushfire Attack Levels (BAL) within Australian Standards for Construction in Bushfire Prone Areas (AS 3959:2009). uPVC windows with metal reinforcing are permitted in zones classified as up to BAL-29 (where the number represents the heat flux in kW m2) risk. Some uPVC window systems have been independently tested and comply with AS 1530.8.1 which permits their use in zones BAL-40 and above.

Energy Efficient – Save Good Money
Dealing with skyrocketing energy bills is a primary concern for Australian homeowners. Most often, the cause is poor insulation due to drafty windows. The presence of drafts in your windows can result in energy loss, costing you more money. When energy is lost through drafty windows, your HVAC system has to work for longer hours to achieve and maintain the optimal room temperature. The longer your HVAC system works, the more energy it uses, hence the higher the cost.Old and outdated windows can increase your yearly HVAC cost by approximately 40 per cent. So, save money today. Replace your drafty and old windows with our uPVC window solutions. uPVC windows provide impressive energy efficiency. Once installed, you could save considerable money on your energy bills. Unplasticised Polyvinylchloride material used for manufacturing these windows is a low heat conductor. Hence, if appropriately fitted, uPVC windows can form a closed and airtight system, thereby minimising heat loss, which is common in non-insulating materials.
Superior Insulation – Achieve Optimal Temperature
Our uPVC windows prevent dampness and ensure that cold air doesn’t penetrate the home. They have superior insulation properties compared to their wood counterparts. Hence, uPVC windows are an excellent choice for achieving the ideal room temperature in the fastest time.Moreover, uPVC windows can be tailored with double-glazing units for maximum insulation.
