It’s a question we get asked occasionally, and one we suspect is in the back of the mind of even more people. After all, we’ve all had one (or many) products that didn’t stand up to the harsh Australian sun, so it’s a very fair question.
It’s especially important, as the minimal maintenance needs of UPVC windows are high among the reasons more and more people are choosing them
Now, we have to admit that some poorer-quality products, and those that are not up to Standards, CAN fade and discolour over time. But that’s not the quality of the product we supply.
Happily, we can answer, “No, our uPVC windows and doors DON’T fade or discolour.”
We’re proud that all our window and door profiles meet the stringent Australian Standard for Windows- AS2047 . This Standard requires all complying windows to be able to handle the harsh Australian climatic conditions, which can include very high temperatures, freezing conditions, high winds and driving rains. All our windows and doors are also Certified under the Australian Window Energy Rating System (WERS).
Now, the uPVC industry has acted to set the bar even higher for quality. The uPVC Window Alliance (a program of the Australian Vinyl Council) has released an Australian Industry Code of Practice and Accreditation Scheme for uPVC windows and doors, aimed squarely at ensuring that uPVC windows and doors don’t fade or discolour.

Eco Home Solutions warmly welcomes the introduction of the Code, and the Scheme, and will ensure that we incorporate complying uPVC profile in all our windows and doors.
As our Director, Manny Temelso says “The satisfaction and goodwill of our customers is paramount, so our aim is to meet or exceed all the Codes, Schemes, Standards and Best Practices that apply to our products.”
