View to a bright and clear world
Windows are getting to be energy efficient, thanks to the use of cutting-edge technology. You can have a wide range of options to choose from
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.”
