For many years UPVC windows and doors have been recognised as the affordable, energy efficient and low-maintenance option.
They can replicate traditional window styles as well as the modern frame profiles required for our more contemporary styled properties and the modern UPVC window and door is available in a large range of colours and finishes.
There is a choice of three frame profile styles to choose from, bevelled, sculptured and a classic flush sash with window handles, catches, hinges and stays all to match with the style and colour of the window. Offering superb security features and excellent energy efficiency our PVCU windows are tailor-made to match your home perfectly.
These are the most popular window style. A casement is identified by the opening part of the window opening outwards.
Vertical Sliders or Sash Windows
These UPVC windows are crafted with attention to detail for aesthetic appeal and have the operational simplicity of a traditional-style sliding sash window.
Tilt & Turn Windows
These have unique concealed hardware that allows the window to be set in one of two positions, either tilted inwards or fully opening inwards. These windows are ideal for apartments or flats allowing for ventilation and easy cleaning from within the property.
Bay and Bow Windows
These windows not only add distinction and character to a house – they add space too. A bay window has three openings, available in angled projections. A bow window usually has four or five. A bay window’s overall structure consists of a picture window with two other windows, usually smaller, on either side. A bow window’s structure is curved, creating a rounded appearance on the outside of the home.
UPVC windows are internally glazed for added security and all handles have locks and keys. Double glazing units are available in both Toughened and Laminated glass for safety and security.
The Double glazed units can also have fully operational blinds in between the glass for privacy and they are a very attractive low maintenance window dressing.

What is the difference between uPVC and PVCu?
It is the same thing. We have decided to use UPVC with a capital U.
uPVC changed it’s name to PVCu (you may also see it as PVC-U) in the late 1980s to fall in line with Europe.
It is called PVCu there because most European languages place the noun (the word PVC in this case) before the adjective (U).
The basic material properties of PVCu make it ideal for window and door application:
- PVCu does not rot or biologically decompose.
- PVCu is resistant to weathering with low maintenance requirements.
- PVCu is tough on impact.
- PVCu retains its shape within normal climatic temperatures.
- PVCu can be reshaped at very high temperature and can therefore be recycled.
- UPVC windows and doors have an official life expectancy of up to 35 years although unofficially much longer and in addition to this they are fully recyclable.
