Types of Windows
UPVC (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) is a popular material used for manufacturing windows due to its durability, sound insulation, and low maintenance requirements. There are several types of UPVC windows available and the right type of UPVC window for you will depend on your specific requirements, budget, and architectural design
Fixed UPVC windows are non-opening windows that provide natural light and views but do not have any ventilation capabilities. They are often used in conjunction with other window types for aesthetic or design purposes.
Sliding UPVC windows have sashes that slide horizontally along a track, allowing for easy opening and closing. They are ideal for spaces where vertical clearance may be limited, such as in balconies or patios
These are the most common type of UPVC windows and are hinged on the side, either on the left or right, and open outward like a door. They provide excellent ventilation and are suitable for various architectural styles.
Awning UPVC windows are hinged at the top and open outward, creating an "awning" effect that allows for ventilation even during light rain. They are commonly used in bathrooms or kitchens.
Bay or bow UPVC windows are designed to create a protruding window space that extends outward from the main wall, adding architectural interest and increasing natural light. Bay windows typically consist of one large fixed window in the center with two smaller casement windows on the sides, while bow windows are curved and often have multiple casement windows.
Tilt & Turn Windows
Tilt and turn UPVC windows are versatile and allow for both inward tilting from the top for ventilation, and inward opening from the side for easy cleaning and egress. They are popular in modern architecture and offer flexibility in terms of ventilation and access.
Skylight UPVC windows are installed in the roof or ceiling to bring natural light into spaces with limited wall space for windows. They can be fixed or operable and are commonly used in attics, lofts, or other areas with sloped ceilings.
The color options for UPVC windows can vary depending on the profile, but common colors include mahogany, gray, black, silver, walnut, golden oak, and even custom colors to match specific architectural styles or personal preferences. Though a bit expensive but colored UPVC windows can be a good choice for homeowners or businesses who want to express their personal style or make a statement with their windows
