Lower Heating and Cooling Costs

Heating and cooling is the largest energy expense for most buildings, accounting for 56% of overall energy use. 1 With vinyl windows keeping heated and cooled air sealed tightly within your home or building, heating and air conditioning units don’t have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature. You conserve energy – and save money.

An investment in vinyl windows can often be recouped in as few as two years.

Outstanding Thermal Performance

Tests using the common measure of insulating ability, the U-factor, have shown that vinyl windows regularly outperform other products because of the frame’s excellent thermal performance. The specially-designed insulating airspaces in vinyl window and door frames, combined with their low conductivity, make them a formidable barrier to heat transfer.

A Natural Insulator

Compared to aluminum, a natural conductor of cold or hot temperatures, uPVC is a natural insulator. It resists heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. Typical uPVC frames have U-factors that are at least 20 percent better than aluminum and are also superior to thermally broken aluminum.

Outperforms Standard Vinyl

Our proprietary uPVC formulation and extrusion process make superior window frames that outlast and outperform alternative materials like aluminum, which can corrode from exposure to weather and pollution.

Resists Fading Even in Extreme Climate Zones

REHAU’s formula includes above-average quantities of TiO2 stabilizers and impact modifiers to protect against fading from solar radiation. When put through five years of weather testing in Arizona, this formula shows its strength; REHAU vinyl performed better than standard vinyl.

Superior Surface Quality and Precision Fit

Because our unique uPVC formula results in a higher than average surface gloss level, REHAU-designed window frames repel dirt and better reveal the trueness of color. In addition, our designs are extruded on finely tuned equipment using high-quality in-house compounding for precise dimensional controls and a tighter fit between sash and frame.

The Material of Choice

One of the world’s oldest polymers, polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, has evolved since the 1940s to become a universally used, cost effective, adaptable, safe and environmentally efficient material. PVC’s unique properties make it the material of choice for many applications, including construction, transportation, electronics and health.

High-Performance Window Frames

Vinyl is the most prevalent residential window framing material and is gaining in the commercial sector due to its highly efficient performance ratings. Though many still believe it lacks durability, innovations that have enhanced the structural performance of vinyl frames are challenging this perception.

REHAU’s proprietary uPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride) formulation and extrusion process make window frames that deliver superior performance, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.

Resistance to Almost Everything

uPVC is naturally resistant to moisture and atmospheric pollutions such as acids, alkalis and salt air. It is impervious to rot, rust, blistering and flaking, as well as infestation by termites or other insects. It resists mold and mildew, and scratching will not require any touch-up. As a result, the REHAU-designed windows and doors you install today will retain their lustre for years to come.

Proven in Extreme Environments

Our profiles go through a stringent quality control process including extreme weather testing.1 REHAU vinyl retained its color and performed better than standard industry performance through five years of weather testing in Arizona. Several of our systems are tested to withstand hurricane impact, meeting the Miami-Dade County Large Missile Impact TAS 201, 202 and 203 (Florida Building Code) requirements as well as the Texas Department of Insurance requirements.

Decades of Performance

As further testament to the durability of our window designs, we can point to installations exceeding 50 years in Europe and 30 years in North America.

1All REHAU window and door designs also undergo rigorous testing to meet or exceed the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AMMA) and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) structural, air and water standards.
