Aluminium Vs uPVC

Why Would you Choose Aluminium Windows and Doors?

Aluminium has become the go-to choice for architects designing window frames in new houses. With their chic battleship greys or subtle charcoal colour, aluminium frames have come a long way since the 1980s.

uPVC

uPVC (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) material is based on plastic powder, which is heated up and injected into a mould in order to form its shape known as a profile. After that, it gets cooled through different methods. Profiles are then cut and joined using heat-fusion welding. Galvanized steel reinforcement sections are then fixed inside the uPVC profiles to provide strength.
