uPVC fenestration solutions are especially beneficial for Indian summers
Indian summers are long, dry, arid and extremely hot. Strong insulation and UV resistance is crucial for maintaining optimal indoor temperatures, yet the material must be low maintenance enough to withstand the dust and grime of the unrelenting Indian summer. This is where uPVC comes to the rescue.
Best Insulation -> Better Energy Efficiency
uPVC frames are bad conductors of heat, creating a strong barrier against the piercing heat of the summer. The insulation properties of uPVC prevent the transfer of heat from outside to inside and vice versa. This means that the indoor temperature remains constant, and there is no need to use air conditioning at a lower temperature. Hence the overall energy consumption is low, resulting in lower electricity bills.
Strength and Durability
At home, how often does one open and close the windows in the summer? Open early in the morning, close in a few hours, open again in the evening to close at bedtime. Repeated usage can play havoc with the best aluminium frame. But not uPVC, one of the most durable material, almost as strong as wood or metal. Their resilience to extreme weather conditions makes them the best possible material for Indian homes and offices.
uPVC windows and doors are UV-resistant, which means they do not fade or discolor over time due to exposure to sunlight. The sheen also lasts much longer than aluminium or other metals. This helps the product look new for a longer time. Moreover, the UV-resistant properties help protect the furniture and flooring inside the house from the harsh summer sunlight.
