Staying in the cities and between the high raise buildings we tend to forget our responsibilities towards nature. To bring green into the urban environment, property developers have started taking initiative to build properties which are green certified and use features which will go with green constructions. In order to support the green constructions, few builders approach using of uPVC (unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) doors and windows.
This will help bring harmony between humanity and nature so that both humanity and nature are able to thrive. Green buildings improve the way that homes and home building sites use energy, water, and materials to reduce impacts on human health and the environment. In India, almost 75 percent of trees that are cut are being used for making of doors, windows & furniture which is an alarming situation today.
UPVC doors and windows are free of lead (Pb) and other hazardous substances. This product has received approval for green building concept. UPVC profiles are designed as per Indian tropical conditions and are extruded and tested. These profiles are designed and developed for a wide range of glass sizes varying from 4 mm to 39 mm which help to create a superior substitute for the conventional wooden frames taking into account the cost, strength, beauty, precision and ecology.
They are environment friendly as they can be fully recycled and renewed for further production. UPVC windows and doors can be fully recycled either at the time when one goes for a renovation or at the end of the lifecycle period of the profile. At the end of their life, they can be successfully converted into other useful products. Even the waste material generated during manufacturing can be reprocessed, thereby helping in creating a reliable and sustainable future.
They are very durable and ultraviolet resistant, sound & dust proof.Thereby reducing the health hazards and improving the environmental quality inside the home. They have fire retardant and fulfill class 1 fire resistance as defined in BS (British Standard) 476. UPVC materials have a long life & are maintenance free.
However, growing awareness about the benefits of uPVC and demographic factors like rapid urbanisation, growing concern about energy efficiency, regulatory changes and boost for Smart Cities in the country, will help in the upward movement of the uPVC windows and doors market in the country.
