Plastmo quality built in from the start

Some 40 years ago in Denmark Plastmo began to concentrate on the production of products from polyvinylchloride unplasticized, now known as PVC-U. In fact, they were among the pioneers. Today Plastmo are one of the foremost extruders of PVC-U for windows and doors in Europe.

Window Cross Section (17K)This exceptional Plastmo quality is available to you in our renowned System Index range, with its slim 62mm profile, combining an attractive appearance with exceptional strength, acknowledged as one of the best profile systems available anywhere in the world. Recent additions to System Index include a 70mm version for direct replacement of wooden frames.

We would be happy to advise you on System Index, which will continue to give pleasure for many years to come. Rest assured that your home could not be in better hands.

Choose with the head, as well as the heart

Whether you wish to fit replacement windows or change your doors you must first decide what material to choose. In the history of window and door technology the use of high impact modified polymers is relatively new, various soft and hardwood timbers having been used for centuries. Yet, the benefits are irrefutable. PVC-U is non-flammable. It will not split, warp, rot, bend or crack. Best of all, perhaps, it requires very little maintenance – merely an occasional wipe with warm soapy water and a little lubrication to the locks.

At KC Windows & Glass we are single minded, we work only in PVC-U and our profiles are generally considered to be amongst the most technically advanced, with constant refinement of extrusion tools and stringent quality control techniques. All batches of raw materials are tested for quality and consistency and throughout the manufacturing and extrusion process samples are taken, at least once every hour, to be tested for colour, surface finish and other manufacturing requirements. Other, more rigorous, tests are carried out at regular intervals. These include procedures, which check the materials resistance to both impact and heat and subject samples to the unlikely temperature of 150°C!

Door and Spirit Level (4K)Whilst the polymer we use has tremendous inherent strength this, on its own, is not enough for a Plastmo window or door. Stringent fabrication specifications dictate the exact sizes at which transoms, mullions, sashes and frames must be reinforced with galvanized steel to ensure maximum strength and rigidity. Profile Detail showing reinforcement (3K)It is, therefore,not surprising that our claim to superior quality is backed by a whole host of official approvals, including rigorous German and Swedish Agrément assessments confirming material performance and product security. But we don't ask you to simply take our word for it – we are so confident of our product performance that every Plastmo profile installation is fully guaranteed. On this website you will find many different styles of windows and doors; in fact, the choice is virtually limitless. But before you decide on such details, first choose your colour scheme.

Almost all Plastmo designs are available in four colourways – all white, all mahogany, mahogany exterior with white interior or all golden oak, golden oak exterior with white interior. (see examples at top of this page)

Your next decision, if we are fitting casement-opening windows, is for you to choose between an External Glazing (4K)external or Internal Glazing (4K)internally beaded design. You may be advised that externally beaded designs pose a greater security risk since it is possible to force entry by removing the beading. However, this potential problem is overcome with the use of security tape. In fact, security is a problem which we take as seriously as you do and we are proud to say that this resulted in our profile systems being the first to gain the British Board of Agrément approval for product security. Every KC window and door features a full depth Eurogroove which ensures that high security products like shoot-bolts can be fitted without danger of breaking into the drainage chamber.
