PVCu stands for Polyvinyl Chloride Unplasticised, a durable rigid plastic. PVC was first discovered in 1835 but it wasn't until 1926 that it took off as a new and exciting product that today is used all over the world! PVCu contains stabilisers to protect it from the ravages of ultra violet rays from the sun, ensuring that your windows and doors stay the same brilliant colour year after year! With added strengthening agents to ensure your windows won't warp or twist, as well as adding to your security, PVC is great for windows and doors because it's tough, hard-wearing and low-maintenance, no painting required! And it's good to look at too!

Some companies use cheaper, recycled uPVC in their products, so get sure before buying. New uPVC products (sometimes called "virgin") ensures the best possible quality for years of maintenance free service in your home.

The full range of products are steel reinforced to the extruder's specification. And sometimes where required, the steel reinforcement runs the full length of the frame. By reinforcing all the frames, you can rest assured that your new products will offer a very high level of security, and avoid twisting or warping.

In the old days of first-generation, single chamber frames, uPVC frames had to be fully reinforced as they simply had very little structural integrity or strength. As we use the latest multi-chambered frames, reinforced to the extruders' specifications, you can be sure your new windows and doors will be just as strong as fully reinforced frames - which means we can pass the savings on to you! Over long lengths of frame, full reinforcement may be required, as recommended by the extruder. If you have very large windows or doors, we will fully reinforce them as required. All our wood-effect frames are fully reinforced with steel as standard.
