Comfort, warmth and longevity: UPVC Windows
Much of the lower South Island is known for extremes of climate – scorching hot over 30-degree days in the summer and temperatures plummeting well below zero in the winter. Such fluctuations call for building materials that perform at the highest level of efficiency, especially with respect to thermal insulation, noise reduction and security.
UPVC windows and doors are thermally and acoustically superior to aluminium products. They are certified to a high New Zealand standard and are UV stable with a projected 75- plus year life.
Designing window and door frames to prevent heat escaping has reached the highest standard with the use of unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (UPVC). This material, when used in conjunction with double glazing, achieves an R-value of 0.8 for insulating effectiveness and thermal performance. To interpret the jargon, that’s very high and will help you enjoy a perfectly comfortable atmosphere in your home while also lowering power bills.
UPVC Windows and Doors Ltd of Dunedin manufacture and install these products using the Deceuninck Zendow profile, the world’s third largest manufacturer of UPVC window and door systems.
The product comes in seven colours and has a 15 year warranty. Once installed the frames look very similar to the beauty of timber frames, but unlike timber they are virtually maintenance free. They have other benefits too – multi-locking systems security features, high sound insulation and maximum water tightness for areas prone to driving rain and snow.
