uPVC recycling: Recyclable windows and doors
The environment remains a key issue and the intensity and urgency of the
subject has increased dramatically over the last few years.
A recent study by a research firm, Nielsen, found that consumers in both big and small markets are turning to environmentally-friendly products. The study found that 81% of respondents felt strongly that companies should be doing their part to improve the environment. This highlights the importance of taking steps to ensure products are more environmentally-friendly, in order to appease consumers’ growing concerns.
The double glazing industry, and the home improvement industry as a whole is no different. Expectations for environmentally-friendly products have increased, and homeowners now expect to be able to be kinder to the environment whilst improving their home.
What’s different about TruFrame uPVC products?
At TruFrame, our uPVC frames are designed to not only be energy efficient, but also to be environmentally-friendly.
To achieve this goal, uPVC frames manufactured by TruFrame are free of harmful materials, like lead and steel. In fact, our Liniar uPVC frames are 100% lead-free. As a result of the strong durability in our products, steel reinforcement is not necessary.
This makes the frames kinder to the environment when being disposed of, but also means that when the frames come to the end of their useful life, they are 100% recyclable.
You can find out more about TruFrame’s recyclable windows and doors on our energy efficiency page.
Reducing energy waste
Up to 20% of a home’s total energy waste can be through ill-fitted or poor quality uPVC products.
TruFrame’s uPVC frames minimise this by being tough wearing, allowing them to handle the strains of the outside word. In addition, our patented design delivers additional features to ensure they are built to last, such as glazing flippers and thermal dams to prevent water leak in the windows or doors, as well as to minimise cold air ingress.
As a result of the long-term durability, there’s less chance of needing to prematurely replace the windows or doors. This not only improves customer satisfaction with the fitting but also reduces the waste that is generated.
Why choose TruFrame as a uPVC supplier?
With consumers increasingly turning their backs to products that aren’t environmentally-friendly, it is important for companies to constantly be helping to improve the environment.
Having TruFrame as your uPVC supplier, you can rest assured that our uPVC products are 100% recyclable and 100% lead-free. This may act as a selling point to your customers who are be considering the environment when making their home improvement decisions.
But the environment-friendly nature of our uPVC frames is only one of the reasons to choose TruFrame for your uPVC needs. Find out more about TruFrame’s Liniar uPVC frames and its key features on our dedicated Liniar page.
