FAQs

Choosing new PVC windows and doors can be considered a serious decision. You might have many questions you need to ask before you take this decision. Some of these questions are listed below.

Safety

A: PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a product of chemical synthesis, main components of which are salt (sodium chloride), oil and gas. Qualitative PVC is inert to most chemicals. Heat and Sound Protection
A: The sound of comfort for humans is 40-45 dB. PVC windows reduce noise up to 30 dB, which is comparable with a slight rustle of leaves. For example, the noise level on a busy motorway is 85 decibels, for buildings 50 meters close to it, it is 75 decibels. PVC windows reduce noise to 30 decibels and as a result, your apartment will be reach the comfortable level of noise.
A: PVC windows may be not only rectangular but also round, arched, triangular, oval or a trapezoid shape. In principle, it is possible to execute any order on an individual project for the customer.

Questions and Answers

A. Polyvinyl chloride, commonly abbreviated as PVC is a widely used thermoplastic polymer. It is one of the most valuable products of the chemical industry. Around the world, over 50% of all manufactured PVC is used in construction. As a building material, PVC is cheap, durable, and easy to assemble. Polyvinyl chloride is used in a variety of applications; as a hard plastic, it is used as vinyl siding, magnetic stripe cards, window profiles, gramophone records (which is the source of the term vinyl records), pipe, plumbing and conduit fixtures. It can be made softer and more flexible by the addition of plasticizers. In this form, it is used in clothing and upholstery and also to make flexible hoses and tubing, flooring, roofing membranes, and electrical cable insulation.
A. UPVC or UnPlasticized polyvinyl chloride is often used in the building industry as a low-maintenance material, particularly in Europe where it is known as vinyl. The material comes in a range of colours and is used as a substitute for painted wood, mostly for window frames and sills. It has many other uses including fascia and siding. The same material has almost entirely replaced cast iron for plumbing and drainage, being used for waste pipes, drainpipes, gutters and down pipes.
A. UPVC is a product made of natural rare materials (57% salt and 43% oil) and it is 100% safe. In fact, it is widely used in medicine in the manufacture of catheters and blood bags. It is safe in other ways too. Windows made from UPVC create a 'safe' indoor environment, free from dust and noise pollution. It is ecologically safe as well. The manufacture of UPVC requires minimal use of energy, far less than the energy spent in the manufacture of aluminium or steel.
A. Unlike MOST other plastics, UPVC is self-extinguishing. This means when the source of the fire is taken away it stops burning. Most materials give off fumes when burning but UPVC does not.
A. UPVC window systems are resistant to scratches during normal domestic use. If scratches do appear, they can be polished out.

A. Our windows derive 95% of their strength from reinforcements made of galvanized steel. They are used in chambers of the profile to provide the necessary strength to the window. Separate sealed chambers in profile and zinc coating on steel bestow longevity to the product during usage period. The thickness and shape of the section is designed to provide the necessary functional and performance parameters of window. The usual thickness varies between 1.0 mm and 3.0mm. The reinforcements are screwed to the UPVC profile at a designed pitch using self-drilling special screws. The unification of the duo renders strength to the windows.
A. UPVC is extensively used around the world as "new age" building material. It looks elegant and can be cut to suite different architectural styles. UPVC benefits over wood and aluminium include: - Excellent sound insulation. - Thermal insulation. - Keeps the air-conditioning costs low. - UPVC windows are factory made and have consistency of quality. - UPVC has fire retardant properties. - It does not rot or corrode. - All corners are welded. - No leakage. - Easy to maintain. - Can be cleaned with just soap and water. - Offers environment friendly benefits. - Low energy consumption in product and use.
