Single-sash window 1.23 m x 1.48 m with PVC-U frame profiles, double insulating glass unit and tilt-turn hardware.
Steel, aluminium or glass fibre extruded into the PVC material can be used as reinforcement in the PVC profiles.
The profile surface can be made with different finishes: Uncoated white, covered with PVC foil, covered with PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate), coated or fitted with a separate aluminium covering shell. This results in white or coloured, smooth or structured surfaces.
The gaskets consist of soft PVC, EPDM (ethylene-propylene-dien monomer) or TPE (thermoplastic elastomere); the hardware are mainly made of steel.
The average window for this EPD is the white steel-reinforced basic variant. However, the inputs/outputs determined from the production quantities are included for profile production, whereby all surface finishing processes which are actually performed at the plants are included.
This EPD declares the average environmental quality for the PVC windows of the member companies of the EPPA, GKFP and QKE associations. Window manufacturers who use this company’s plastic profile systems can also make use of the declaration. Detailed product data is available from the respective manufacturers’ specific descriptions.
