Benefits of UPVC Windows: Strength, Durability and Ease of Maintenance

Feb Mon, 2024

Safety, comfort, and convenience are the primary factors that one looks for in their dream home. Which is why, in recent years, there has been a huge shift from traditional materials like wood and metal towards uPVC for windows and doors.

Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) is the material of choice for windows and doors because it is one of the most versatile and sustainable materials in the construction industry. Since it is unplasticized, uPVC is more rigid & robust, and boasts of a range of functional benefits that other materials cannot deliver. Unlike wood, steel or iron, uPVC retains its shape, structure and strength in all weather conditions.

Strength & Durability

uPVC window strength is a result of them being manufactured using high-quality raw materials, which makes them strong and highly stable. uPVC windows and doors are also resistant to high temperatures, strong winds, heavy rainfall and other extreme climatic conditions, making them the ideal choice for any residential or commercial space. They are also completely resistant to damage by saline water or moisture, ensuring that they stay strong and robust for years to come.

To further improve uPVC window strength, steel reinforcements can also be integrated into the uPVC window and door profiles. Steel reinforcement in uPVC doors & windows also helps to control the rate of expansion and provide much needed rigidity where the frame size exceeds a certain thickness. uPVC steel reinforcement is especially recommended for larger frame sizes, and in coastal areas or high-rise buildings that are exposed to strong winds. Reinforcing uPVC doors and windows with steel also adds more rigidity to the hardware, which makes the incorporation of door locking mechanisms into uPVC profile frames easier.

uPVC windows and doors that come with high wall thickness and a multi-chambered design make them extra sturdy and secure. The integration of multi-point locking systems further increases uPVC window strength & security.

Ease of uPVC window and Door Maintenance

uPVC door and window maintenance is a breeze as they are termite-proof, rust-proof, corrosion resistant, and not impacted by rain or dampness. Here are a few simple steps that must be followed to keep uPVC windows and doors looking and working great for many years:

The frame – Wipe off dust, dirt and cobwebs, then use a damp, clean cloth to wipe the frame. Add a few drops of cleaning solution if required.

The glass – Rub the glass with a damp cloth to get rid of excess dirt. Then use an e-cloth, which comes in a package of two pieces of cloth – one for cleaning and the other for drying – to clean the glass uniformly.
