Is uPVC a good thermal insulator?

Yes, UPVC is a an excellent insulator. Unlike aluminium which is a conductor, uPVC is an insulating material and when combined with an IGU (insulated glazed unit) it is the perfect choice for maximum efficiency. Its coefficient of heat conductivity is actually slightly lower than wood at 0.17 W/mC°, compared with 0.23 W/mC°. The equivalent coefficient for aluminium is approximately 210 W/mC°. As 40% of household energy can be lost through windows huge savings can be made. A degree of comfort in the living space is achieved that cannot be equaled with single glazed aluminium windows.

Install Double Glazing

We have a range of double glazed windows and doors that will keep you and your family warm this winter. Don't put up with condensation on your windows any longer!

Call (03) 6248 4111



I am super-impressed by both my new window and the outstanding professionalism and care by your two colleagues who came to install it. They explained everything they were doing, did a brilliant job on the installation,  were friendly and courteous, and even cleaned up their work area afterwards - and that alone is a point of difference that your company should be proud of and should promote. Tradespeople don't bother these days to leave the workplace as they found it - and in this case, they left it better than they found it.

I am so pleased with the finish of the product itself and with every aspect of my contact with your company.
