For uPVC profile extruders and suppliers:
If you are, or intend to supply extruded uPVC profiles for windows and doors to Australia, give your customers and distributors confidence that your product will stand the test of Australia’s climate.
uPVC windows are known around the world for being durable, low maintenance, thermally efficient products. However, one of the most common queries from specifiers, builders and consumers about uPVC windows in Australia is whether the uPVC profiles will discolour because of high UV conditions here in Australia.
Profiles accredited under the Australian Industry Code of Practice for uPVC Profiles have been independently tested to resist Australia’s weather and retain uniform colour and impact strength.
The intention is for the Industry Code of Practice (ICP) for uPVC Profiles to be implemented in addition to window manufacturers meeting the requirements of the Australian Window Standard AS2047 for the whole window unit.
By choosing to work with ICP accredited uPVC profiles, manufacturers will have confidence that their windows are designed for Australian climatic conditions.
