- draught excluders
these are thin strips built into the edges of the frames & windows, much like brush fibers in a strip, they reduce wind penetration & water ingress.
- Window beading
these upvc strips are used to clip into the frames and secure the glazed units into the window and should always be on the inside of the window for security reasons.
- steel reinforcing
very important to make sure the window frames keep their shape over the years as if the frames warp they don’t’ fit tight and will start to let in draughts & water
- trickle vents
some upvc windows are so air tight they can actually create condensation issues in the home, trickle vents allow controlled air flow and prevent condensation.
Small items, but if you buy double glazed UPVC windows without them being built in, you could be making an expensive blunder.
