Double Glazing with uPVC frames

uPVC (unplasticised PolyVinyl Chloride) is a non-conductive, rigid window and door material used for its superior insulation, durability and low-maintenance.

uPVC windows and doors have been a staple in international construction for over 60 years. Since 2006 we have been educating Canberrans on the benefits and necessity of insulated windows and doors for our unique climate and over the years have witnessed the popularity of uPVC frames used for new and renovated homes.


We offer two brands of uPVC, Aluplast and Deceuninck, both European with testing and certification for our Australian climate. These brands are fabricated in Melbourne by Thermotek Windows and in Sydney by Forever Green Windows to the relevant Australian Standards AS2047 and AS1288.

Features include fusion welding, compression seals, UV-stabilisation and multi-point locking, steel reinforcement, chambers and up to BAL 40 available for fire rated areas. UV-stabilisation allows these products to withstand Australia’s harsh climate against warping and fading. The brands we offer are compatible with either double or triple glazed glass units, with the standard glass unit being 24mm deep. Frame profiles are available in a variety of laminated colours on bases: white, dark grey and dark brown. Customisable duo profiles or white inside with any colour outside are also available.

The use of cutting edge technology achieves top energy ratings between uValues 1.2-2.4 (WERS). Made to order with endless configuration possibilities to suit any size, style and functionality needs. Our design team works with you or your builder/architect to tailor-design each window and door, creating a cohesive vision with individual room requirements in mind.

Top Features of uPVC Windows & Doors

Non-conductive material

uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) is naturally a non-conductive material, making it an excellent choice for thermal insulation. Unlike metals, which readily conduct heat and cold, uPVC’s molecular structure prevents the efficient transfer of thermal energy. This inherent property helps maintain consistent indoor temperatures by reducing heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. As a result, uPVC windows and doors contribute significantly to energy efficiency, providing homeowners with a comfortable living environment and lower energy bills.

Weather Resistant

uPVC is highly weather resistant, making it an ideal material for windows and doors. Its robust composition ensures it can withstand extreme weather conditions, including intense sunlight, heavy rain, and strong winds, without warping, rotting, or fading. Unlike traditional materials such as wood, uPVC does not absorb moisture, preventing issues like swelling or mold growth. This durability translates to a longer lifespan and minimal maintenance, providing a reliable and cost-effective solution for protecting homes against the elements.

BPA Free

Being a BPA-free material, uPVC ensures safety for use in homes and buildings. BPA, or bisphenol A, is a chemical often found in various plastics that can pose health risks when it leaches into food or water. uPVC is formulated without BPA, making it a non-toxic and environmentally friendly option for windows and doors. 

Lead Free

Traditional PVC often contained lead as a stabilizer, which posed health risks and environmental concerns. Modern uPVC formulations have eliminated lead, replacing it with safer alternatives, making it a non-toxic choice for windows and doors. This advancement not only enhances the safety of living spaces but also contributes to a healthier environment. 


Unlike some other materials used in construction, uPVC can be efficiently recycled and repurposed at the end of its lifespan, reducing waste and conserving resources. Recycling uPVC not only minimizes the environmental impact of disposal but also promotes sustainability by reintroducing the material into the production cycle for new products.

Long Lasting and Durable

uPVC is renowned for its exceptional durability and longevity, making it a preferred material for windows, doors, and other construction applications. Unlike traditional materials such as wood, uPVC is resistant to rotting, warping, and corrosion, ensuring it maintains its structural integrity even in harsh environmental conditions. Its inherent resistance to moisture, pests, and UV radiation contributes to its long-lasting performance, requiring minimal maintenance over its lifespan. With uPVC, homeowners can enjoy peace of mind knowing their windows and doors will retain their functionality and aesthetic appeal for many years to come, making it a wise investment for any property.

Easy to Maintain

One of the key advantages of uPVC is its ease of maintenance. Unlike materials like wood, uPVC requires minimal upkeep to keep it looking its best. Its smooth surface is resistant to fading and rotting, meaning it only needs occasional cleaning with soap and water to maintain its appearance. Additionally, uPVC does not require painting or sealing, saving homeowners time and money on maintenance tasks. With uPVC windows and doors, homeowners can enjoy hassle-free maintenance and long-lasting performance, making it an excellent choice for any property.
