Quality has a name
that's why we use the VEKA Profile System
Since its introduction to the marketplace almost 50 years ago, uPVC is now the technology of choice for energy efficient buildings.
ARC uses the world's leading brand in uPVC Window and Door profile systems from Germany, 'VEKA'. Being a manufacturer in Thailand, we understand the intricacies of the local conditions and requirements of the local markets, so as to be able to give you the right products, advice and support.
Our profile systems utilize uPVC that is designed to have a long life, and is therefore equipped with the ability to withstand whatever the environment has to throw at it, whether in a rural area exposed to intense weather, or in urban areas that are heavily polluted. The systems are used in a huge variety of projects large and small, from domestic through to prominent public building works.
The construction is the product of detailed design work, and pays attention to drainage, stability, reinforcement and of course insulation against heat and sound. ARC's company Matrix range of systems represent the high standard that has been achieved at VEKA, and have been arrived at following a lengthy process of development, design and testing, all of which is visible when you see the quality and attractiveness of our systems.
This commitment to continued development has recently become again visible in the company's attention to environmental concerns.
Anyone who has ever seriously considered installing uPVC windows or doors in their home can tell you; energy savings is the number one unique selling proposition (the USP of uPVC!). Un-Plasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC) windows and doors provide heat insulation at 2.2 times that of aluminum. It seems not economic that customers would pay for aluminum or wood when uPVC actually looks better than aluminum and is more than twice as effective at keeping heat out and cool air in.
If you would asked an installer of uPVC windows and doors why they are so much better at climate control he had three reasons. First said that is because uPVC doesn't heat up like aluminum frames, it only makes sense; plastic vs metal. Secondly, because uPVC is much easier to "weld" together, the seals and corners always fit snug, whereas aluminum is always at the mercy of the installer's skill.
Finally, uPVC doesn't succumb to the elements, corroding or warping to break the seal of the house. Here in Thailand, where many people live near the sea, resistance to humidity and salt air is a major consideration.Reduce-noise
For similar reasons, uPVC doors and windows offer better sound proofing. Studies have shown that installation of these devices can decrease noise by 33 to 43 decibels. So, it doesn't matter if you are trying to keep the street noise out of your living room, or prevent your barking dog from upsetting the neighbors, uPVC will get the job done better than wood or aluminum.
Another way uPVC doors and windows pay you back is lower maintenance costs.
If you have wood doors and window frames, wood rot and water damage can make this an on-going and expensive affair. Even aluminum fixtures will rust over time and need replacing.
uPVC is a tough plastic that is unaffected by wind, rain and salt air corrosion. All you need to clean it is some mild cleaning fluid and a cloth. And, if you ever do replace your uPVC windows, you can recycle them; they're tough and "green".
