What are uPVC Doors and Windows made of?


Whilst uPVC is commonly just known as a form of plastic, there are differences to the plastic we find in our everyday lives to the plastic that we use to protect our homes and decorate our windows.

What is uPVC?

uPVC is a form of plastic known as unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, otherwise known as rigid uPVC. This means that the plastic has been hardened to make it non-flexible, unlike other forms of plastic.
This form of plastic is manufactured using vinyl polymer which is bound to chlorine atoms, which allows it to work well with steel.
uPVC doors are commonly made with an internal steel core, increasing the level of robustness and security that they can provide.

Why choose uPVC?

The uPVC windows and doors we fit at Salop Glass have an A-rated energy efficiency. This helps to keep the costs inside your home down, while also being a cost effective option in comparison to other frames.
The clean lines of the uPVC allows them to look newer for longer and are easy to keep clean.
