How Strong is uPVC really?

uPVC has 5x the tensile strength of wood and 4x the flexibility. Our uPVC components are engineered with impact modifiers and are UV-treated with TiO2 to ensure that our products wont weaken in the harsh sun, and allows our Lifetime Guarantee against fading, cracking, blistering or discolouring.

What is the difference between PVC and uPVC?

uPVC stands for unplasticised-uPVC; unplasticised uPVC is stronger, and more rigid than regular plasticised uPVC, which means that it is better suited to creating durable and strong doors.

Will uPVC break in Hot Weather?

As with most plastics, uPVC will become less flexible in colder weather conditions. However, therefore, unless subjected to unusual impact, it will not break. It is normal for materials to expand and contract during temperature changes. Our uPVC products have been formulated to accommodate the temperature swings and changing climactic conditions typical in the Middle East.

Is uPVC Safe for Children and Animals?

uPVC products have smooth surfaces with no nails, sharp edges or splinters. You, your children, pets and animals are all safer around uPVC than around wood or steel (for various reasons). uPVC has a tough surface, retains virtually no moisture, has no taste, and is non-porous.

Will uPVC Burn?

uPVC has a high flash point of 900°F and does not readily ignite. It is generally categorized as being “self-extinguishing” which just means that, once you remove the source of the fire (the flame), it will no longer burn.

How Do I Clean uPVC?

Generally, we have not come across anything that can’t be taken care of with some household cleaning agents.

Should you find yourself in the midst of teenage angst, most Graffiti can even be removed; first try using a non-abrasive scoring pad with a liquid cleaner if the graffitti is new. Failing that, try methylated spirits, mineral turpentine or hairspray (yes, hairspray) all have been proved to be effective.

Marker pen ink can also be removed using the above, but you sometimes you are left with a light ghosting. This will burn off over time with UV light. Alternatively, for quick removal Harpic wash & shine gel is effective..

Can I Paint It?

If you really want to! We like to think that there is no reason to paint our beautiful uPVC products. The reality is that sometimes people do need a specific colour; if you decide to paint it, it would be best to use an epoxy-based paint – an epoxy paint does a better job of adhering to the smooth surfaces of uPVC. The downside, unlike our uPVC (Ahem), is that, much like any painted product, it would have to be repainted in time. Please note that any painting of your vinyl product voids its warranty.

How Do I Install uPVC Products?

The great thing about uPVC products is that installation is far easier and less invasive that any other permanent solution. In terms of the actual process: it is very similar to most products.
