Why UPVC ?
Advantages Of UPVC over Wooden, Steel & Aluminium
While frame made of aluminum or any other metal tends to scorch, uPVC is such a poor conductor of heat that you can lean on it comfortably and enjoy the views even on the hottest of days. More significantly, it prevents the heat outside from entering your home, thereby reducing your reliance on cooling devices such air conditioning.
The design of uPVC are multi-chambered profile with tight seal are the best windows in noise separation. It brings tranquility and cut unnecessary disturbance especially favored & widely used in Hospitals, Schools and office buildings. Moreover, after a day of hard work, you deserve to go home with best protection from exterior noise.

Fire tests have shown that uPVC materials, being naturally flame retardant through their product life, will not cause, support or enhance the natural development of fire. Unlike timber windows, the uPVC sections do not support combustion are in fact self extinguishing. This quality prevents the promotion of fire spread.
Unlike metal windows, uPVC profiles are rust-proof and resistant to atmospheric pollution, including a range of acids and alkalis. This also means they will never in the manner of wooden frames over time. uPVC can withstand the aggressive city environment and the humidity of a beach area residence.
HIGH WIND LOAD PERFORMANCE
UPVC windows are built to withstand the gustiest wind conditions, which makes them an ideal choice in high rises and coastal areas.
FUSS FREE MAINTENANCE
It takes only half as much time to clean tilt-and-turn windows, as their openings allow you to swipe both sides at the same time. uPVC windows are extremely resistant to pollution, diluted acids and alkalis. No special maintenance regime beyond the use of appropriate standard household cleaners is required. All in all, an uPVC is virtually guaranteed to help you save plenty of time and money over long duration of its use.
The sealing of uPVC windows systems effectively stops dust drifting in from the outside, which drastically reduces the time you'll need to spend cleaning your house.
UPVC windows prevents dust and water infiltration. So your home stays absolutely dry however heavily it might be raining outside.
The prices of uPVC products are very economical even when compared to the other alternates available in the market and apart from this it also delivers many other advantages. This is the reason PVC takes more and more market share from other materials in its applications. uPVC Doors & Windows works out cheaper in the long run. uPVC windows are energy saving windows & can save lots of electricity. Therefore making the window free of cost during its lifetime. uPVC doors and windows are maintenance free & do not need painting & polishing therefore reducing the cost one has to incur over a period of time. These doors and windows not need any maintenance as they do not warp unlike wooden windows which expand & contract in rainy seasons need regular repair & maintenance. In long term uPVC Doors& Windows almost return back the initial investment made on them & hence making it free of cost during its lifetime.
With a smooth surface and properly welded corners, uPVC door & window shows a modern design.
Advantages Of UPVC over wooden, Steel & Alluminium
Dorowin 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 :
Steel / Aluminium Windows
|Wooden windows need regular Painting/ polishing.||Aluminium windows and doors need painting over long periods of usage.||UPVC windows and doors requires no painting; only routine cleaning.|
|Durability under Extreme Weather|
|Wooden windows and wooden doors start fading very soon; require constant re polishing.||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.|
|Wooden windows tend to rot or expand during monsoons. Poor insulation allows water to flow inside.||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|
|Wooden windows and doors tend to rattle in face of strong winds leading to whistling sounds..||Due to poor structural strength and insulation; aluminium windows and aluminium doors tend to rattle in face of strong winds leading to whistling sounds.||UPVC windows and doors are multi chambered and reinforced with steel. For heavy wind loads; they can be reinforced with a hurricane bar.|
|wooden windows and doors use Tropical Hardwoods Are Ecologically Unsound..||Aluminium windows and aluminium door frames use large amounts of energy in production; not an environment friendly choice.||UPVC windows and doors use less energy at the time of production; hence more environment friendly.|
|wooden windows and doors Look Good.||Aluminium windows and aluminium doors can Look Cold And Out Of Proportion.||UPVC windows and doors have elegant looks; enhances both; the exteriors and interiors of the building.|
|Wood is a poor conductor of heat; hence wooden windows and wooden doors conserve more energy than aluminium windows and aluminium doors.||Aluminium windows and aluminium door (being metal) conduct heat energy. Poor sealing and imperfect installation leads to lot of energy loss.||UPVC windows and doors are poor conductors of heat. They have excellent sealing with multiple point locks and fusion welded joints; hence conserve energy.|
|Wooden windows and wooden doors are poorly engineered and poorly sealed; hence provide poor sound insulation.||Aluminium windows and aluminium doors are poorly sealed with mechanical joints and poorly installed leading to poor sound insulation.||UPVC Windows and doors are fusion welded, lock at multiple points and double sealed leading to excellent sound insulation.|
|Wooden windows and wooden doors are prone to termites.||Aluminium windows and aluminium doors do not attract termites.||UPVC windows and doors are not prone to termites.|
|Wooden windows and wooden doors Have poor structural strength; hence require more members; limiting the amount of sunlight.||Aluminium windows and aluminium doors Hollow frames lead to poor structural strength; thus leading to more members and lesser sunlight.||UPVC windows and doors are steel reinforced; hence structurally strong. They allow large sizes leading to more sunlight.|
|Addition to value of home|
|Wooden windows and wooden doors tend to deteriorate with time; hence do not add to long term 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.|
|Wooden windows and wooden doors tend to have more frames; hence leaving lesser area for 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.|
|Ease of use|
|Wooden windows and wooden doors have poor quality hardware which do not last long; leading to difficult usage experience.||Wooden windows and wooden doors have poor quality hardware which do not last long; leading to difficult usage experience.||UPVC windows and doors use international quality hardware that allows easy use of windows.|
