Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC), also known as Rigid PVC, is a chemical compound of chlorine, carbon and hydrogen. 'U' stands for Unplasticised, , so that it is rigid for strong window frames.
It is a relatively simple plastic, consisting of 50% ordinary salt (sodium chloride, the source of the C in PVC). About 40% is ethylene, which is separated from fuel products during refining. Other additives include stabilizers and coloring. Ethylene is also found naturally in plants, leading to the prospect of totally renewable supply through bio-fuels.
uPVC Windows are widely used across the globe, from the deserts of Arizona to the coldest parts of Scandinavia/Russia; from the hot environs of the Gulf region to the tropics of Malaysia and Thailand. They are a very popular choice in China, S.Korea and Taiwan. uPVC Windows have been recognized wordwide as Green Windows. uPVC Windows are the best fit for all weather conditions prevalent across India; from the salty humid corrosive air of coastal areas to sub-zero temperatures of Ladakh to heavy rains of Cherrapunji to the hot dust storms of Central India to the cyclonic gale winds of Orissa coast to the extremely hot deserts of Thar in Rajasthan.
While we all enjoy rain and it spells good news for nature as well, it is not so much fun when the rain enters into your home. Rain water seepage can cause more damage and prove more costly than you think.
Aside from the obvious cost of repairs, which can escalate if the water seepage source isn't found and repaired, there's also the cost to your family's health from infections and respiratory ailments stemming from molds and bacteria formation.
The same problem gets accentuated with traditional wooden windows and doors as they warp and resulting gaps invite rain. With aluminium windows and doors, if not installed properly, rainwater accumulates in the tracks and spills inside.
Over the years, doors and windows have to withstand different weather conditions. Special high percentage of titanium dioxide compound for high UV and Humidity weather condition called TPX. With TPX compound technology, long lasting guarantee for discoloration and form loses – 10 years and for fascination wood colours and finishing’s 7 year guarantee special FX foiling for High UV durability.
For Nature Windows, safety of the consumer is imperative. The sturdy doors and windows profiles are procured from European design standards and technology. Special fittings glazing, qualified window fabrication and expert installations done by Nature Windows offers enhanced security at various levels.
upvc can be recycled and reused several times. PVC-U comprises only 43% petrol (100% for the greater part of plastic materials). International scientific researches have shown that this material is disposed to a favorable eco-balance. The relative low energy cost for the production of the windows is half of the woods This helps us save the resources of the planet.
Nature Windows and doors do not require regular repainting and expensive maintenance. They do not rot, wrap or corrode even in tropical and salty coastal climates. Therefore their maintenance is reduced to simple cleaning and does not involve any further cost.
This special insulation from Nature Windows shuts out all the unnecessary noise from the environment to provide a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere indoors. The profile
provides the possibility to place glazing with a thickness of up to 41mm.The maximum contact area on the frame of the TPE seals guarantees an excellent seal .
uPVC neither retains nor transfers heat. It is the ideal material to obtain good results in thermal insulation . Having Upto 5 chanmbers concept the doors and windows performs more then excellently and will comply with the most stringent thermal regulation. The high quality TPE gasket prevents the air from escaping and flowing in with this the right configuration of the glass prevents thermal bridging .
Fire tests have been conducted and the results have shown that profiles are naturally flame retardant throughout its product life. It does not cause or support the development of accidental fire, making it absolutely safe. Unlike timber, it does not support combustion and are in fact self extinguishing.
One of the crucial attribute of Nature Windows is its resistance to pouring rain and joint tightness. Features like water slaughter, rain track and few more features prevents the water from seeping in the house. Having such features allows the out flow rate to be higher then the inflow rate which prevents the water from over flowing from the track.
Nature Windows material are ideal for being installed even in buildings close to the sea where they are permanently exposed to strong wind, heavy rain and salty air. TPE gasket which is Pre inserted and highly engineered which is meticulously chosen for their specific functionality . The maximum contact area on the frame of the TPE seals guarantees an excellent seal. As we give steel reinforcement within all sections as per the height and width combination, height of the building and various other factors. Having done this the windows gain strength to resist wind loads.
Nature Windows longevity and superior quality has been conclusively proven. The profile material compound matches world standard for strength, durability, temperature stability, color retention and termite resistance.

Glass is an important component that impact the functionality of the window. Glass should be selected on the basis of thermal insulation, sound insulation, wind resistance, water tightness required as per climatic condition and few other points. Nature Windows can accommodate any type of glass as desired and required by you.
Float glass is a sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal, typically tin. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces. Modern windows are made from float glass.
Tinted float glass is produced by adding colorant during a clear float production. These glasses are primarily designed for solar control which is reduction of the sun’s direct heat energy which in turn will reduce the energy cost. Tinted glass have another important feature which is that they are glare reduction.
These are float glass with metallic costing thus helping to reflect back the solar radiation thus taking care of thermal insulation better than tinted glass. It even reflects the light during the day time and it even ensures minimum visibility from the outside.
Toughened glass is made from annealed glass via a thermal tempering process. The glass is placed onto a roller table, taking it through a furnace that heats it above its annealing point of about 720 °C. The glass is then rapidly cooled with forced air drafts while the inner portion remains free to flow for a short time. It is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner part is in tension.
When two glass sheets of any of the above mentioned glasses are sandwiched together with one or more layers of PVB plastic or resin it is called laminated glass . The process of sandwiching / lamination makes the glass much stronger and prevents easy breakage. Due to PVB Plastic or resin in between the glass does not shatter when it breaks.
Heat strengthened glass is subjected to heating / cooling cycle in controlled behaviour and is twice as strong as annealed glass. These glasses also have higher resistance to thermal loads. When broken, the glass fragments break into large pieces and do not result into small fragments like toughened glass, thus allowing it to stay in the opening for a longer duration. Although it is not a safety glass but this breakage pattern prevents the glass from falling and injuring someone This glass cannot be drilled / cut / edged, sandblasting etc.
Insulated glass refers to two or more glass sealed around the edges with an air space between the two to form a single unit. The insulating air / gas between the two layers of glass improve the thermal performance of the unit.
