Advantages and features of UPVC windows
■ UPVC windows are energy-efficient
Like wood, PVC provides ideal thermal insulation. The PVC’s thermal conductivity is lower but is very close to thermal conductivity of wood, higher by a wide margin than aluminum and iron. As a result, the most important benefits of UPVC windows include reduction in energy consumption up to 50%, lower investment required in terms of building installations and lower depreciation of heating and cooling system. It should be noted that thermal conductivity is affected by the number of glass panes, type of gas injected between the panes and assembly procedure of the window. At the same time, UPVC windows minimize the risk of electric shock due to high electrical resistance and require no earthing system.

■ UPVC windows are silent
Given the widespread use of double and triple-pane glasses in UPVC windows and multiple rubber gaskets in their complex structure, these windows provide ideal thermal insulation in addition to sound insulation and prevention of noise pollution. Depending on the type of glass, the number of of layers and the type of gas used in the lining of multi-pane glasses, the intensity of noise pollution is reduced by 20 to 40 dB.

■ UPVC windows are beautiful
Owing to their thermoplastic properties, UPVC profiles provide good weldability. Relying on advanced window manufacturing and assembly machinery, UPVC windows are easily produced within a few minutes in complex, curved, angled and bent shapes compatible with all modern and classic architectural styles. At the same time, a special laminating machine can be used to produce colored and wood windows in the interior or exterior decoration of the building. Alternatively, aluminum profiles can be used to produce windows with aluminum exterior for compatibility with aluminum facades.

■ UPVC windows are impermeable
Given the alarming air pollution in Iranian urban areas as well as in dusty desert areas, UPVC windows with their special structure provide an excellent barrier against dust particles, pollutants, etc. At the same time, impermeability of UPVC windows prevents any water from flowing into the building after heavy rainfall or window washing.

■ UPVC windows are compatible
Benefiting from a variety of fittings applied in the production of UPVC windows, it is possible to expand the windows into different forms including tilt, turn, sliding, double (French), etc. as well as multi-mode and hybrid forms, including Tilt & Train, Lift-Sliding, Tilt-Sliding (Volkswagen), Lift-Sliding, Slide-Folding (accordion), etc. which meet the consumer preferences and designer needs.

■ UPVC windows are forever young
In different weather conditions, including very cold and tropical areas, UPVC windows are resistant against wind acid and salty rain, salt water and humid environments, while preventing rot, rust, etc.

■ UPVC windows are clean
Owing to their surface characteristics, UPVC doors and windows can be produced in different colors. At the same time, they can be cleaned simply by household detergents and water, since they are never scratched like wooden and aluminum windows. Hence, UPVC doors and windows are not required to be polished and painted periodically. This feature is important from the perspective of aesthetics and improvement of the building''''s outward appearance. Meanwhile, the initial cost of painting on the windows is completely saved. The window profiles can also be produced in colors according to customer request.

■ UPVC windows are self-extinguishing
One characteristic of PVC is its ignition temperature (385 °C) compared to wood (260 °C). In fact, when the fire source drifts apart from the PVC product after ignition, the flame automatically dies, thus preventing the fire from spreading. At the same time, toxic fumes during the ignition of PVC profiles spread extremely slowly.

■ UPVC windows are protected
Owing to their inherent properties, PVCs exhibit excellent resistance against chemical corrosive agents. This feature has enabled manufacturers to offer UPVC windows in chemical and industrial environments. UPVC windows are immune to rust, corrosion and harmful effects of insects such as termites, cockroaches, etc.

■ UPVC windows are clean
Additionally, PVCs provide a microbial medium where bacterial growth is very limited. This feature has made PVCs popular in hospital environments, food processing plants and laboratories.

■ UPVC windows are light and resistant
The application of metal profiles in the multi-hole structure of UPVC profiles has provided insignificant weight and sufficient durability and mechanical strength. At the same time, PVCs are sufficiently resistant against winds, storms, annoying vibrations caused by winds

■ UPVC windows are secure
One of the features of UPVC windows lies in their exclusively diverse fittings. One type of such fittings is anti-theft, especially popular in villas.

■ UPVC windows are recyclable
Similar to most polymer products, UPVC windows are recyclable, not contaminating the natural environment. In the manufacture of UPVC windows, the waste and useless fragments can be recycled and consumed in other industries.

Coefficients of energy loss in a building
Nearly half of energy in buildings is dissipated through windows and doors. The window prevention of heat and cold transfer is examined based on a metric called heat transfer coefficient (u_value), which depends on the coefficient of heat transfer in glass and frame. In fact, the heat transfer coefficient is related to the amount of energy passing a unit area (one square meter) of a given object per unit of time (one second) under conditions where there is Kelvin temperature difference between the internal and external sides of the object. Accordingly, this metric is reported in watts per square meter, per degree Kelvin (W/m2-K) or similar units of measurement. The following figures display the heat transfer coefficients of several types of glasses (ug). In this respect, the balance and proportionality in heat transfer coefficients of glass and frame are essential for optimal design of the windows in a building. For instance, it shoes the irrational use of double glazed in metal windows, or use of a single glazed UPVC windows. Concerning the reduction in sound intensity, the type of frame is crucial in addition to thickness and number of glass layers. The following figures compare the sound intensities in several types of glasses. The heat transfer coefficient of frame (UF) is around 9.5 W/m2-K in aluminum profiles compared to 5.3 W/m2-K in thermal break profiles .W/m2-K 5/3 in ordinary UPVC profiles.
