uPVC Windows Sustainability

Are uPVC windows bad for the environment?

If their sent to landfill at the end of life, the simple answer is yes. Fortunately, there are alternatives to landfill.

uPVC is highly recyclable, according to the Building Research Establishment (BRE), uPVC can be recycled up to 10 times or more, without impacting on its material performance.

The BRE also give uPVC window frames a reference service life of 35 – 40 years. This would suggest that each uPVC window which has a service life of 40 years, can be recycled up to 10 times will give a total service life of up to 400 years.

Because of this, uPVC actually became the first material of any type to be independently awarded an A* material sustainability rating by the BRE.

Environmental sustainability is important to us. By using Sapphire Windows, you can be assured that your existing windows and doors will be recycled, and not sent to landfill.

How do I look after my new composite door?

Your Sapphire Windows door doesn’t need any maintenance. However, to keep that showroom finish, a small amount of care and attention is recommended. How often will depend on where you live; In a coastal or heavily industrialised area or near a busy main road, cleaning may need to be more frequent. We recommend that you only use warm soapy water (washing up liquid is suitable) with a lint free cloth and wipe dry with a soft clean cloth.

To prevent surface damage, please do not;
• Use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads
• Use pressure washers or steam cleaners
• Apply any type of bleach or solvent
• Apply any adhesives of any type or tack
• Have any contact with any sharp objects
