Among the new synthetic substances frequently used in home and commercial construction today, UPVC, or unplasticised polyvinylchloride,is a newer construction material that is often selected to replace the traditional wood door products. These products include handles made of UPVC. They are made differently from typical door handles and are mounted to the plastic resin door with a different type of hardware than traditional door handles. UPVC door handles can sometimes be difficult to find, as the doors are not widely used. Therefore, some stores will not carry anything other than the standard type of door handles.
Doors manufactured from this substance are available in many different styles, for a variety of uses. You can select upvc French doors for an entry to a room, or an attractive product for the front entry of your home or office. French doors usually come in pairs, with individual glass sections. This gives a room a very decorative look and is great for entries onto patios, gardens or balconies. The classic style includes a rounded top, though they are now made in a more modern style with a squared top. Doors for entries can be very dramatic with many design features, or somewhat simplistic, for those entries that have many existing design features.
UPVC is a very strong substance that is also commonly used for framing windows and upvc patio doors, so you know the substance is very durable. The handles that are used on your doors depend on the particular style you have chosen. Some handle styles are fairly universal and are designed to be placed in various positions on the door. Other doors come with the place for the door handle already installed, so it cannot be moved or shifted. Handles can curve in either direction, depending on what you choose.
Along with various styles of upvc door handles, the products include an opening for the key lock. You can also select handles in many different color options, such as white, brass, chrome, brushed nickel, black or copper. If you need to purchase a replacement product, the kit will include all the hardware needed to install the product. Usually this means the backing plate and proper screws are provided. The advantage in using UPVC doors over steel is that they will not dent or rust. This material does not chip or warp like wood products can. When building a new home, look at some of the products available and consider their advantages over other types of doors.
