PVC-u Windows, Doors & Conservatories

PVC-u Insulating Properties

PVC-u has natural insulating properties. PVC-u window, door and conservatory frames provide excellent protection from the elements plus thermal insulation that will keep the property warm, dry and draught free. Multifunctional weather seals are also available, giving cutting edge technology to window, door and conservatory manufacture.

PVC-u Acoustic Properties

The outstanding acoustic insulation of PVC-u windows and doors will shield the property from the noise of the outside world.

Typical products produced in PVC-u include:-

  • Windows – vertical slider, sash, tilt & turn.
  • Residential Doors.
  • Patio Doors.
  • French Doors.
  • Patios.
  • Conservatories.

PVC-u Window & Door Design

State of the art PVC-u window and door design embraces modern styles and quality engineering standards. The beautifully sculptured shapes can add a stylish elegance to both windows and doors, inside and out.

PVC-u Windows & Doors - Colours

White PVC-u door and window frames are the most economic to produce, but white may not necessarily be the colour that best compliments your home. For some properties black is a popular choice. Recent developments in PVC-u frame technology now enable you to select from a wide range of colours, including a variety of wood effect finishes.

GRP Composite Doors

With contemporary manufacturing techniques, a composite door has the same aesthetic features and appeal as a wooden door – but with many practical benefits. It is essentially a maintenance free alternative to the traditional wooden door.

  • No painting required.
  • No twisting, or warping.
  • Excellent insulation properties.

Energy Efficiency Rated WindowsDouble Glazing - Energy Efficiency Rated Windows

Energy efficiency is a cornerstone of government policy in tackling global warming and enhancing conservation. The British Fenestration Rating Council (BRFC) and the Energy Saving Trust (EST) have developed a government backed scheme allowing windows to be rated according to their energy efficiency (insulation and heat saving).

All windows are now rated according to their energy efficiency.

Conservatories – Planning Approval

Most properties that have not already been modified have Permitted Development Rights. Depending on the type of property, an extension of 10 – 20% of the external dimensions of the property (including roof space and close outbuildings) can be build without formal planning approval. You should check the details with your local authority.

Conservatories – Building Regulations

Normally, a domestic conservatory will be exempt from control by Building Regulations. Below are some of the requirements for conservatory exemption from Building Regulations.

  1. The conservatory must be a ground level construction.
  2. A physical barrier must separate the conservatory from the property.
  3. The floor area of the conservatory must not exceed 30 sqm.
  4. The conservatory walls must be at least 75% wall glazing, thus the conservatory will have a maximum wall area of 25% brick.
  5. The conservatory glazing must be of a specification to comply with Building Regulations.
  6. The roof of the conservatory must be transparent or translucent.

Conservatories – Select Your Supplier Carefully

Whilst you may not need building control approval, you should choose your conservatory, and your conservatory supplier with care. A well designed conservatory is a very enjoyable addition to your home. A poorly designed conservatory can be uncomfortably hot in summer and very cold in winter.
