Win­dows are func­tional el­e­ments of a house. They as­sist nat­u­ral light and ven­ti­la­tion and shut noises from out­side. Win­dows can be dec­o­rated or per­son­alised to add to the aes­thetic tenor of your home.

A re­cent ad­di­tion to the ex­ist­ing range of win­dows in the In­dian mar­ket is Cora uPVC Per­for­mance Win­dows that have been in­tro­duced by Shani Cor­po­ra­tion Lim­ited. Sound-proof and eco-friendly, th­ese win­dows are built us­ing eco-sta­bilis­ers. Con­se­quently they of­fer op­ti­mum in­su­la­tion and trans­late to en­ergy sav­ing. Th­ese win­dows are also ver­sa­tile in terms of de­sign and func­tion and can be con­fig­ured ac­cord­ing to in­di­vid­ual cus­tomer pref­er­ences. For in­stance they can be con­fig­ured (through large com­bi­na­tions) to max­i­mize views. More­over, th­ese win­dows are ideal for In­dian build­ing styles and ev­ery de­sign uses qual­ity UPVC prod­ucts. The price range for Cora Per­for­mance Win­dow starts from Rs 300/per square feet on­wards. It is an in­ter­na­tional prod­uct and saves elec­tric­ity upto 33%. An­other ad­di­tion to the mar- ket is villa win­dows by Fenesta Win­dows. Villa win­dows go a step be­yond ad­dress­ing the cus­tomer's need for per­son­al­iza­tion. “Villa win­dows also ex­pand the de­sign pal­ette avail­able to ar­chi­tects and end users,” says Ram Ku­mar, zonal head, Kar­nataka, Fenesta Win­dows. The villa win­dow in­te­grates the tra­di­tional In­dian win­dow de­sign of grill and mesh (pop­u­larly made out of wood) with UPVC, the new age win­dow ma­te­rial. Other win­dow op­tions in­clude de­signs that can span en­tire bal­conies, rise from floor to ceil­ing, slid­ers, case­ments (win­dows with sash that open out­side), slider and case­ment combo, bay win­dows that can be cre­ated at any an­gle, arches and French win­dows.

The lat­est range of world class weather proof UPVC win­dows are es­pe­cially de­signed for the life­style con­scious in the coun­try. “The new sys­tem is specif­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant for high-rise, con­do­minium dwellings as it ef­fec­tively coun­ters high-pres­sure winds and rains thereby en­hanc­ing the safety and com­fort of houses,” says Ku­mar.

“The new range of win­dows are struc­turally strong and durable. They have been proven to sub­stan­tially bring down noise and dust lev­els and re­duce air con­di­tion­ing bills. They are re­sis­tant to ter­mites and re­quire low main­te­nance,” says Ro­hit Bha­tia, a Delhi based life­style and home dé­cor store. Win­dows in­tro­duced by Pella have been specif­i­cally en­gi­neered to save en­ergy up to 86 %. Amit Sab­har­wall, COO, Pella In­dia ex­plains, “By us­ing ar­gon gas in be­tween panes of glass, our win­dows en­sure that the air is non toxic and pro­vides an ex­tra layer of in­su­la­tion from heat and cold.”
