What is U-Value

The U-Value or Uw is a measure of conductivity of the whole window (glass and frame included). It is a number calculated to return an amount of energy flowing through the product at a given temperature difference per meter squared of window. The Uw is a number that indicates how well a window or door will retain heat in the winter and reject heat during summer. The lower the Uw the better the energy efficiency of the product.

What is PVC?

The components of PVC originate from the naturally occurring raw materials of petroleum, or natural gas and common salt. The ‘u’ stands for Unplasticised, (sometimes called Unmodified), and it means that the material has not been softened by the addition of chemicals known as plasticisers.

Maintenance and Durability

Both aluminum and PVC window frames are easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Both are also durable, although inexpensive PVC window frames tend to expand and contract when exposed to extremes of heat and cold, making them harder to operate and prone to air leakage. Vinyl window frames cannot be painted and darker shades may…

PVC window frames are also called “vinyl” frames

PVC window frames are also called “vinyl” frames, because they are made from rigid, impact-resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC). They have hollow spaces inside the frames that make them resistant to heat loss and condensation. Aluminum is a relatively inexpensive metal, it’s strong and durable and easily shaped into any length to frame windows.
