The PVC Aware campaign was launched in order to promote the green credentials of using PVC for window frames and general double glazing products.
Endorsed by the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF), PVC as a workable window framing material is surprisingly environmentally friendly. Often besmirched by an ill-formed preconception generated by the media, PVC is unexpectedly low in its use of resources. Add this to moderate manufacturing costs, low maintenance requirements and remarkable durability and you have an all round winning product.
As if all that wasn?t enough, PVC as a framing material is 100% recyclable! As quoted from the PVC Aware campaign website ?PVC, especially when used in such products as window and door frames, may be continuously recycled in a closed loop with the recycled material being used again and again in new window frames and other building products.?
Finally, and just to add to the list of surprising facts you never knew about PVC window frames, they received an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide www.thegreenguide.org.uk
