Beaumont & Residence 9 uPVC windows
In recent years we have launched the hand-crafted Beaumont window and Residence 9 windows, these can have people fooled that they have timber windows, they are really authentic and a very popular choice.
Recylced uPVC options as well
Firstly we offer the Veka Infinity profile system, its manufactured from recycled material in its core, the external faces are made from virgin uPVC. Further information can be found on our Veka Infinity page
Secondly Profile 22 uses RCM (recycled composite material) for its internal reinforcements. Manufactured from old first generation post-consumer uPVC windows, the reinforcement range of double glazing windows closes the loop on the recycling process by bringing this waste material back into use in a new generation of products.
In a world that strives to save precious resources, we believe that this is an innovative product that enhances the thermal efficiency of your windows, whilst providing the strength required from internal reinforcements.

Benefits of using uPVC for your windows & doors
- Low maintenance
Cleaning frames with soapy water occasionally and maybe lubricating hinges, handles and other hardware is usually all that is necessary.
- No painting
uPVC never needs repainting or re-staining, unlike timber frames.
- Not just white
There are lots of colours and effects available for frames of your new double glazing, even a wood-effect.
Whatever the colour, tests ensure that it won’t deteriorate over time.
- Deterioration proof
Frames don’t rot, rust, corrode, warp or split and have been proven to last at least 35 years.
- Tough and durable
Special additives make uPVC frames tough enough to suit UK requirements.
- Resists combustion
Frames will burn only when subjected to an intense fire source. PVC is classified as self-extinguishing.
uPVC has inherently high thermal and acoustic properties.
- Cost competitive
uPVC windows are generally the most cost-effective option due to them being long lasting, low maintenance and low cost.
- High performance
uPVC frames are able to comply with the requirements of all relevant British Standards and BBA requirements.
- Design capabilities
Most styles of double glazing window are available in uPVC:- tilt and turn, vertical sliding sash, pivot, fully reversible and traditional casement windows.
uPVC windows are easily recyclable.
- More 'A' rated energy
uPVC double glazed windows achieve more 'A' ratings for energy efficiency than any other framing material. Consider 44mm triple glazing for the ultimate insulation
Domestic and commercial uPVC frames score A and A+ ratings respectively in the BR Green Guide.
