What is uPVC?
uPVC stands for Unplasticised Poly Vinyl Chloride. The components of PVC originate from the naturally occurring raw materials of petroleum, or natural gas and common salt. It is a chemical compound of chlorine, carbon and hydrogen. Unplasticised means that the material has not been softened by the addition of chemicals known as plasticisers. PVC is chemically stable and has no adverse effects; it is also 100% recyclable.
What is the difference between uPVC and PVCu?
There is no difference between uPVC and PVCu. Both terms refer to unplasticised (hard) PVC, which is used extensively in building products where rigidity is an important attribute. Any claims of better performance of PVCu over uPVC are therefore false.
Do I need building regulation permission for my new windows/doors?
Yes, Valmar Windows obtain all your necessary permissions.
Why do I need building regulation permission for my new windows/doors?
The Government issued an ‘Approved Document L’ and from April 1st 2002 it was brought into effect; it extends Building Regulations to cover replacement window and door installation. All installers of replacement windows and doors have to comply with the improved energy efficiency requirements. In practice this means we have to meet stringent energy efficiency targets. Products are measured by their “U” value: uPVC doors and windows cannot exceed a U-value of 2.0. The U-value is the rate at which heat is lost through the product. All Valmar Windows Limited products are fully part L compliant.
