uPVC stands for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride. It is a type of plastic that is harder and less flexible than normal plastic. Considered one of the most versatile forms of plastic, it can be found in appliances that range from daily use to life saving. This versatility has made it extremely popular in homes where it is increasingly being used to construct doors and windows.
Doors made of uPVC offer many advantages to homeowners, especially when living in Delhi. One of the first and biggest advantages is that it is not impacted by weather changes including extreme weather changes. Anyone who has lived in or around the Delhi region knows that this is a very important consideration since Delhi often experiences these extremes.
Summers in Delhi can be very hot with temperatures reaching highs of 45 degree Celsius and an average temperature of 40 degree Celsius. Winter temperatures in Delhi go down to as low as 2 degree Celsius with an average of about 7-8 degree Celsius. In addition, during the rainy season, Delhi experiences an increase in humidity.
All of this means that wooden doors swell up or contract depending upon the weather. Prolonged exposure to this and wooden doors become warped. This means that they do not close properly or get jammed shut. Not only is the latter a nuisance but the former is dangerous.
uPVC doors do not get affected by these extremes in temperature. They do not expand and contract and they do not warp. This means that installing uPVC doors in the house ensures peace of mind because these doors will do their job in keeping a home safe. In addition, since uPVC is a hard material and is not easy to break, burglars won’t find it easy to break uPVC doors down.
