UPVC Windows and Doors are made from a special blend of UPVC and have many benefits over Aluminium, Steel and Wood Windows and Doors. Please see the comparison table below to find out how. Steel / Aluminium Windows UPVC
Maintenance Aluminium windows and doors need painting over long periods of usage. Fenesta UPVC windows and doors requires no painting; only routine cleaning. Durability under Extreme Weather Aluminium windows and aluminium doors can start fading after sustained exposure to sun. Start looking ugly. UPVC windows and doors have UV resistant blend; do not fade under sustained exposure to sun. Monsoon Resistance Aluminium windows and aluminium doors allow rain water to come in due to poor insulation and installation. UPVC windows and doors have a built in special rain drain mechanism. For heavy rains; special rain track can be accommodated. Resistance to Wind Due to poor structural strength and insulation; aluminium windows and aluminium doors tend to rattle in face of strong winds leading to whistling sounds. Fenesta UPVC windows and doors are multi chambered and reinforced with steel. For heavy wind loads; they can be reinforced with a hurricane bar. Environmental Impact Aluminium windows and aluminium door frames use large amounts of energy in production; not an environment friendly choice. Fenesta UPVC windows and doors use less energy at the time of production; hence more environment friendly. Aesthetics Aluminium windows and aluminium doors can Look Cold And Out Of Proportion. Fenesta UPVC windows and doors have elegant looks; enhances both; the exteriors and interiors of the building. Energy Conservation Aluminium windows and aluminium door (being metal) conduct heat energy. Poor sealing and imperfect installation leads to lot of energy loss. Fenesta UPVC windows and doors are poor conductors of heat. They have excellent sealing with multiple point locks and fusion welded joints; hence conserve energy. Sound Insulation Aluminium windows and aluminium doors are poorly sealed with mechanical joints and poorly installed leading to poor sound insulation. Fenesta UPVC Windows and doors are fusion welded, lock at multiple points and double sealed leading to excellent sound insulation. Termite resistance Aluminium windows and aluminium doors do not attract termites. Fenesta UPVC windows and doors are not prone to termites. Sunlight Aluminium windows and aluminium doors Hollow frames lead to poor structural strength; thus leading to more members and lesser sunlight. Fenesta UPVC windows and doors are steel reinforced; hence structurally strong. They allow large sizes leading to more sunlight. Addition to value of home Aluminium windows and aluminium doors require lot of maintenance; hence do not add to value of home. UPVC windows and doors have a long life and do not require any maintenance. Hence they add to the long term value of the home. Ventilation Aluminium windows and aluminium doors have more frames; hence lesser area for ventilation. UPVC windows and doors have a long are structurally strong and require less frames allowing more ventilation.
