How Does uPVC Stand Up to New Zealand's Weather?

One of the most important questions you may have is how does uPVC stand up to New Zealand's weather? It is durable, a good insulator and resists heat loss. Let's take a look. Firstly, uPVC is made to order, so it is made to last. 

uPVC is a highly durable material that's made to withstand the harsh New Zealand weather. Its low conductivity makes it an excellent insulator, reducing both the transfer of hot and cold temperatures. In addition, the material is highly energy efficient. As well as being an excellent insulator, uPVC can withstand harsh sunlight and New Zealand's varying temperatures. Its recycled content makes it an environmentally-friendly option for your home.

The best part of uPVC windows is that they are maintenance-free. They have almost no surface ageing and are completely recyclable. Offcuts from the production process are granulated and reused to make other products.

New Zealand's Weather Conditions

uPVC is a very durable material that is resistant to New Zealand's weather conditions. It is also UV-resistant, so it will not rust or crack. This material is energy-efficient and will not need to be painted or treated with paint. It is also recyclable in Europe, where it is often used for internal componentry.

New Zealand is surrounded by the most extreme weather, which makes it very important to choose a material that is able to withstand the rigours of our climate. However, this does not necessarily mean that you should go for the cheapest doors and windows available. It is also worth considering how much energy you are willing to spend on a new window or door. It is also available in many different colours and styles, so you can be sure that your new Aluminium Windows and doors will look great.
Another advantage of uPVC is that it is lightweight. It also has low conductivity, which means that it is a great insulator. Some uPVC window frames are inserted with steel for extra strength. Regardless of the type of uPVC window, the product will last for up to twenty to thirty-five years.

While timber windows are considered to be durable in New Zealand's climate, uPVC windows are less likely to need repairs and maintenance. The materials you choose will depend on your climate and the design of your home. Generally speaking, timber windows are expected to last for a longer period, but that depends on how often you maintain them.

Perfect Materials for High Temperature

The weather-resistant properties of uPVC make it the perfect material for your windows and upvc folding doors. They are available in a variety of styles and come with multi-point locking systems to ensure security and protection. They also offer the highest thermal and acoustic performance. Their thick, 23mm double glazing means that your windows will not feel the wind gusts of New Zealand's harsh climate, while remaining incredibly quiet.

Compared to other materials, uPVC is a very effective insulator. The material can withstand temperatures up to 240oC and is therefore ideal for homes where people spend most of their time inside. In addition, uPVC is low-maintenance and doesn't need repainting, sanding, or repairs. It also doesn't produce any extra waste or harmful chemicals. Moreover, uPVC profiles are designed to last 40 years in the harsh New Zealand weather, which means that you will not have to replace them very often.

Advantages of uPVCs

Another advantage of uPVC is its resistance to warping and swelling. These properties allow the material to be moulded into complex profiles and resist heat loss. They also provide excellent air sealing. Moreover, uPVC is resistant to damage from deteriorating, thus reducing the risk of heat loss.

New Zealand's climate is temperate in the south and subtropical in the north. However, it can be extremely cold in the inland alpine areas in winter. The hottest month in New Zealand is December, while the coldest is July or February. The average temperature difference between summer and winter is only four to five degrees, though it can be up to 14 degC in some parts of the country.

Aside from being easy to clean, uPVC windows are also completely airtight, reducing the risk of mould and mildew formation. This makes them perfect for coastal environments. They are also resistant to fire and rot, giving you peace of mind and great security. And what's more, they improve the value of your home.
