The Best Windows
Oknalux offers the highest quality uPVC frames on the Australian market at an attractive price. uPVC or sometimes known as PVC-U, is seen to be a relatively new product in Australia. However, this product was first manufactured in Germany in the 1960’s, and has grown to become one of the most popular frame types in countries like America and Europe. uPVC is also slowly being incorporated in many Australian homes and offices, due to its great properties and price.
Regular PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a strong and lightweight product, used for many purposes including the construction industry. PVC can be made softer and flexible with the addition of plasticisers. uPVC is unplasticised making it rigid and hard to flex. uPVC is lightweight, durable, water resistant, fire resistant, has excellent thermal performance, and is one of the lowest maintenance building products available. uPVC will not warp, twist, rot, rust or fade, even in the harshest of conditions. It is also completely recyclable and a very safe product. uPVC does not contain harmful chemicals, and for this reason is used to carry water and create products like mouthguards.
uPVC framed windows combined with a double or triple glazed glass unit, are an excellent solution for a new or existing build. In Australia, a uPVC window system must have a steel structure within the frame for added structural stability, and is rated to a bush fire attack level (BAL) of 29. At Oknalux, our windows have unmatched security, durability, thermal performance and noise reduction. We offer 3 different frame types, available in 43 different ‘Renolit foil’ veneer colours, which also include natural wood-like textures.
