The 'PVC' in uPVC stands for Polyvinyl Chloride - a chemical compound derived from naturally occurring raw materials of natural gas, petroleum and common salt.
The 'u' stands for 'unplasticised'. This means that no chemical plasticizers have been added to soften the material. uPVC is widely used in conservatories because it's easily shaped under heat. Also when extra support is needed, metal rods can be incorporated within the structure. And it looks great!
The benefits of uPVC for you
When you choose uPVC as a cover for your insulated conservatory ceiling, you'll enjoy a bright, light and airy space created by sunlight reflected from the uPVC surface. Plus, uPVC is a very low-maintenance material that will only need minimal attention after installation.
The uPVC-panel ceiling will be installed inside your existing conservatory roof, hiding the insulation from the interior and helping dramatically decrease seasonal temperature fluctuations.
