Frequently Asked Questions

What is PVC?

What is PVC is the first question that would crop into anyone’s mind. To put it simply, PVC is Polyvinyl Chloride, which in lay-man terms means plastic or synthetic. Do not be alarmed! PVC is the best thing that could happen to you and your home if you know what it’s really about.

PVC options are available in every kind and type of furniture you can think of. From kitchen supplies to PVC dinner tables, all the options are there for your taking. But let us just focus on one for now-PVC kitchen cabinets.

Most people think that a kitchen is that space in a house which is earmarked with tradition. So they go old-school with wooden cabinets and traditional structuring. But at the same time, there is a growing trend that wishes to experiment with this space and recognises it’s potential. Using PVC kitchen cabinets is a major part of that trend.

Which is better, PVC or Wood?

It’s a debate as old as time.  PVC kitchen cabinets are water proof and last for a really long time as compared to their competitors, the wooden cabinets which are prone to termites and require high maintenance. Another added benefit, is that PVC is a fire retardant and is extremely easy to install. Wooden cabinets are expensive and require long labour hours for successful installation.

Why use PVC cabinets?

Now, that we have established that PVC is better than wooden cabinets in a lot of key areas, it still remains to be seen what it can offer when it comes to other options-for instance, aluminium cabinets.

The number of advantages of PVC kitchen cabinets is amazing. Its durability wins it some basic points, but its versatility in terms of colours is a definite added bonus. Not only this, it can resist chemicals and water breeches and the fact, that its maintenance is next to nothing, makes it an essential element for a family on a strict budget.

In homes with kids, PVC kitchen cabinets ensure optimum level safety and access because they are light weight and can handle pretty much any kind of usage, even that which is bordering on rough.

Hence, it is a good idea to consider PVC kitchen cabinets when you plan your house. Go online and a quick search will reveal multiple sites where you can find more information about them and can order them too.

Is PVC durable?

PVC is resistant to weathering, chemical rotting, corrosion, shock and abrasion. It is therefore the preferred choice for many different long-life and outdoor products. In fact, medium and long-term applications account for some 85 per cent of PVC production in the building and construction sector. 

For example, it is estimated that more than 75 per cent of PVC pipes will have a lifetime in excess of 40 years with potential in-service lives of up to 100 years. In other applications such as window profiles and cable insulation, studies indicate that over 60 per cent of them will also have working lives of over 40 years.

Is PVC cost effective?

PVC has been a popular material for construction applications for decades due to its physical and technical properties which provide excellent cost-performance advantages. As a material it is very competitive in terms of price, this value is also enhanced by the properties such as its durability, lifespan and low maintenance.
