There are as many as 10 water-tightness classes defined for uncovered windows, from 1A to 9A, as well as a special class, Exxxx where the xxxx stands for the value of pressure greater than 600 Pa.
Due to their excellent insulation properties and low thermal transmittance uPVC window systems help reduce air conditioning and/or heating costs depending on the climate in which they are used. What’s more, they are not only effective in regular residential circumstances but sometimes even in “rough terrain".
In the window profile industry, there seems to be a definite trend towards uPVC. uPVC frames dominate the window market in Europe and are also very common in China, the USA, and increasingly, even in India. The question is, why? What's so special about uPVC? Why are more and more home owners jumping on the uPVC bandwagon? And, perhaps most importantly - should we join them?

smart-slide is the result of many years of research and development. It combines the tightness of a tilt and turn window with the operability of a sliding system. This helps smart-slide create one of the tightest uPVC windows to combat extreme weather conditions. The air tightness seals the doors and windows perfectly to regulate internal temperature keeping the space warm in winters and cool during summers. This feature also makes it impervious to driving rains. Thus it makes it the best option to be used as a patio door. The air tightness of smart-slide additionally makes it the most effective in providing sound insulation compared to other sliding systems available in the market.

Recyclability, long life expectancy, low maintenance, low thermal transfer and good insulation properties can be summarized in the word “sustainability”. With the changing climate and a growing awareness for the environmental problems of our time, sustainability has become an attribute of major importance. In this regard, the advantages of plastic windows compared to other materials are very apparent.
UnPlasticized Polyvinyl chloride, uPVC for short, is a plastic. Plastics are synthetic materials consisting of organic molecule compounds which have been polymerized by chemical processes. uPVC stands for UnPlasticized polyvinyl chloride, a type of polyvinyl chloride utilized in the manufacture of uPVC doors and window frames.
