UPVC has become the preferred material for window and door frames in every major country in the world.

UPVC is fully recyclable making it the environment’s friend too.
Our consultations are entirely geared around your needs, so the length can vary. Generally speaking it depends of the type of product and the complexity involved.

This is called “secondary glazing”, and it does not have anywhere near all the benefits you get from UPVC double glazing. Ecostar replace quite a lot of “secondary glazing” as there is condensation between the two panes of glass, hardware failure due to the extra weight, the panes are very heavy to remove for cleaning, and homeowners tend to be disappointed with the lack of noise reduction and poor thermal efficiency.

Low-e is a microscopic and transparent coating applied to our glass. This reflects long wave infrared energy (or heat). Some low-e also reflects significant amounts of short wave solar infrared energy. When the interior heat energy tries to escape to the colder outside during winter, the low-e coating reflects the heat back inside, reducing the radiant heat loss through the glass. The reverse happens during the summer time.
