The future of PVC-U recycling

PVC-U is a highly sustainable product, robust enough to be recycled and repurposed up to 10 times without its quality or performance deteriorating. At our recycling plants, we process up to 70,000 old UPVC window frames per week, or around 39,000 tonnes per year. Once recycled, it is used to create a variety of new products, from thermal inserts to our revolutionary Modus window system. By doing this we are able to reuse almost 100% of our production waste.

Our 360 approach

  • Our PVC-U Thermal Inserts and Cavalok systems are 100% recycled PVC-U 
  • Modus window system available in 100% recycled PVC-U 
  • 70,000 end of life frames recycled per week 
  • Almost 100% of production waste reused 

Reduced cost and energy consumption, better performance

Wherever possible, we offer a ‘closed loop’ service, reengineering the PVC-U taken from old frames to make new windows, doors and building products for the same supplier. The process uses less energy and gives customers a high performance, more efficient product.
