Under test, a double glazed window made with our profiles will achieve a rating of 30-40dB (decibels). Typical ambient sound measures around 60dB in suburban conditions, so your new windows will more reduce the noise by up to 50%, allowing you to relax undisturbed.
PVC-U is a very poor conductor of heat and therefore makes an excellent insulator. In the construction industry, a material's U-value measures its ability to insulate, with the lower value, the better the insulant. A typical old glazed window has a U-value of approximately 4.4W/m2K.
VEKA frames have been tested and proven to have a U-value of 1.3W/m2k, meaning our frames keep in nearly 80% more heat than typical older frames. This conserves energy and more importantly save you money on your heating bill.
