With unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) window frames you get durability despite being low maintenance, and high-performance security and energy efficiency despite their attractive appearance. The only thing left to decide is what type of vinyl window system best fulfils your architectural design.
1. Casement windows
Whether top hung (with the hinges fitted at the top) or side hung (with the hinges fitted on the side), casement windows open outwards. They are versatile as they can be combined with fixed panes in almost any size or layout to suit your needs.
It is easy to control exactly what level of ventilation you want with a single turn of a casement window handle.
2. Bay windows
The unique ambience created with bay windows is hard to beat. Where else can you double up a flood of natural light with a cosy seating area?
3. Sliding windows
Open up your living space with the unobstructed views provided by sliding uPVC windows to match your uPVC doors.
4. Tilt and turn windows
Although relatively new to the South African market, tilt and turn windows have long been a popular specification in European buildings. It follows, then, that tilt and turn windows are weather-resistant and offer thermal insulation – even more so when using double glazing or low-E glass.
Even using just one hand, tilt and turn windows are easy to operate – tilting inwards for ventilation and swinging open for cleaning and/or using as an emergency exit. Don’t let their simple, elegant lines fool you, they are engineered for secure all-round locking when closed.
