Window of opportunity
Currently the door and window profiles in India are dominated by aluminium and wood while fabrication is primitive. Un-plasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) profile is the default choice the world over. It provides greater durability, stunning looks and energy efficiency by keeping out noise, dust, heat or cold. It is also more cost effective.

Designed along the concept of folded planes and partitions, the house includes double volumes created internally, with large windows and openings that allow ample natural light and cross ventilation, thus enabling energy efficiency.
Down to Earth
Inspired by Laurie Baker and sticking to their belief in alternate architecture and environment-friendly development, Good Earth, a Bengaluru-based consultancy firm, pipes the imminent need to go ´alternate´, build less and think ´sustainability´. At the helm of this dream is Natasha Iype
VEKA India to expand in Gujarat
VEKA India, a subsidiary of VEKA AG - the world´s second largest manufacturers of windows and doors systems received an over whelming response for their systems based uPVC windows and doors profiles at the recently concluded Interior and Architectural Exhibition -Home Décor of Saurashtra.
The role of windows and doors which were earlier limited to being a source of natural light/fresh air and providing access to space respectively has changed dramatically in the last few decades.
Today, cities reportedly consume 70 per cent of the world´s energy supply. Additionally, many of them are also responsible for greenhouse gas emissions. Going forward, how will these cities cope with the increasingly harmful effects on the ecosystem, biodiversity and livelihoods of human beings and meet the growing energy demand? The answer is simple: energy conservation and efficiency.
Innovation at the doorstep
Encraft´s new low threshold uPVC doors for all types of properties are a blend of innovation and care. Suitable for single or double door options, the new ergonomically-tested threshold reduces the step height from 52mm to 25mm, one of the lowest effective heights in the industry.
The fenestration fare
Fenestration has undergone a drastic revamp all over the world, and the trends are fast catching up in India as well. Apart from wood and aluminium, windows are now available in alternate technological configurations such as UPVC.
