Living in bustling cities, in high-rising buildings, we often forget about the nature and the impact of our actions on the environment. To reduce the urban impact on nature to some extent, uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) doors and windows are introduced, lately. The uPVC structures are green certified and designed for better and safer green constructions.
uPVC doors and windows are environmentally friendly:
The uPVC door & windows also form harmony between nature and humanity while reducing the impact of building construction on both human health and the environment. If we consider India, large part of forests is being cut for making doors, windows and furniture. But reducing the number of trees is leading to global warming to a great extent.
On the other hand, uPVC structures are free of lead, as well as other harmful substances. So, this construction material for windows and doors are considered green material. Moreover, the UPVC profiles have been designed according to the Indian tropical conditions and are properly tested and extruded.
These new-age uPVC structures are environment-friendly and can be renewed and recycled completely for further production. These can be recycled at the time of renovation or when the life cycle of the uPVC profiles comes to an end. After completing their work cycle, these structures can be transformed into many different useful products. Even the waste products created from the manufacturing process can be reprocessed for a sustainable and reliable green future.
Benefits of installing uPVC windows and doors
uPVC doors and windows can be used in constructing your dream house while maintaining a balance between home interior and the environment. Following are some of the major benefits of using uPVC doors and windows in your house.
• Recyclable: As mentioned before, uPVC windows and doors can be reprocessed and converted into some practical products for future use. Therefore, these are helpful in building a sustainable future in the long run.
• Low energy consumption: Compared to wood or metal, the uPVC materials are low in cost and also require less energy while manufacturing.
• Conserve natural resources: This new-age building construction material has successfully replaced wood for making frames of doors and windows. Therefore, its use has eliminated the use of wood to some extent, which ultimately leads to forest restoration or conservation. Using uPVC structures, you can eventually reduce deforestation.
• Improve indoor air-quality: It offers excellent sealing and insulation for keeping environmental pollutants, such as dust, sound and smoke, away from your home. So, it helps in reducing health hazards while improving the indoor environment and quality.
• Energy-saving insulation: uPVC structures offer perfect insulation and avoid leakage of air from inside the house to outside and vice-versa. This results in lower energy consumption while reducing the air conditioning and central heating costs.
• Earn LEED credits: Both uPVC doors and windows are constructed from recyclable materials that require less energy during the manufacturing process. Moreover, it offers better insulation against dust, heat, rain and pollution. It further helps builders to achieve valuable LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and higher construction ratings for their projects.
