Whether you’re looking for double glazing windows in Oxford or elsewhere, Paradise Windows can help. We cover huge swathes of Gloucestershire and Wiltshire as well as Oxfordshire, and we supply and install superior calibre uPVC windows all over our area. We also have a great range of uPVC doors to complement your new windows.
What is uPVC?
uPVC, or unplasticised poly vinyl chloride, is a rigid, strong form of plastic that is PVC before the addition of plasticisers to make the material flexible. Often, it’s just called PVC. Mainly, it is used outside, where the weather and corrosion need to be resisted. Window frames are one of its most common uses.
Benefits of uPVC Windows
Choose our versatile uPVC windows and you can expect a number of benefits, including reliability, style and quality performance. Interior temperatures are made more consistent, enhancing energy efficiency. Little or no maintenance is needed, and uPVc is renowned for being tough and long-lasting. There’s no rotting, rusting or salt erosion, which, with our products always comes thoroughly tested. Add to that strong environmental performance and good acoustic insulation, not to mention a high level of security, and you have a very fine material indeed.
We use the smart-looking, integrated Halo Rustique solutions which have a sculpted ovolo form and slim sightlines to maximise the glazed area.
Additionally, you can look forward to the following benefits and features:
- Made from acrylic, high-impact modified uPVC
- Products are independently assessed and accredited by the British Standards Institute, with BS6375 achieved for weather performance and PAS024:2012 rating for security. The company was also one of the first to achieve the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System standard.
- Designed for thermal efficiency with a double glazed unit and standard outer frame and a multi-chambered profile, with the option for patented thermal inserts to enhance performance still further. Even without, our uPVC windows achieve a Window Efficiency Rating (WER) of A, one of the highest there is. Reduce energy bills, noise, carbon footprint and condensation – and create a more comfortable home.
- Versatile all-in-one system
- Low maintenance: A quick wipe with a warm, soapy cloth and the cleaning is done!
- Wide choice of Colour options
- Choose from two classic styles: Chamfered or Sculptured profiles. Both come in an attractive, handcrafted finish, in a range of 19 different coloured and woodgrain finishes – these products will match your home to perfection, whatever period it’s from. You can also add optional features including Georgian bars.
- Safe & secure: Windows are fitted with multi-point high-security hook-locks and shootbolts to create a virtually impenetrable barrier to both the elements and intruders. Solutions are also beaded internally, and the market-leading hardware, engineered to the highest specification, is concealed, making access even harder. And because windows are glazed internally, too, security is enhanced still further.
- Solutions are designed to replace existing frames for minimal fuss.
- Choose from casement or vertical sliding sash solutions which combine performance with the look and simplicity of a classic wooden window. There are also possibilities for bow and bay windows, or tilt and turn versions for situations where safety and access could be an issue, for example in flats.
