Alternatives for wood…
Source : The Hindu Property Plus Published On : 2009-01-10 City : Chennai

With the trend increasingly leaning towards green options in construction, the recyclable potential of the materials used becomes an important factor. So is the use of alternatives to wood.

And what better option if the alternative used not only simulates wood in its appearance but also packs in a few added benefits.

If the alternative also fulfils the green requirement of better thermal efficiency along with maintenance free features, it works as a tailor made replacement to wood.

Deccan Structural Systems has come out with a steel alternative for wooden doors where the doors come in shades of wood. Made from pre-treated steel, these doors are considered to be three times more resistant to deformation compared to wood.

Given their sleek wood grain finish, they can almost be mistaken for a wooden door.

Says Vincent Mendonza, Marketing Manager, Decca Structural Systems, “These doors are not only fire and corrosion resistant, they are also crime proof as they are extremely strong and come with a multiple locking system.” Given the steel component, he says the installation of these doors has to be planned in advance.

The door comes with a steel frame and hence needs to be fitted while the construction is in progress.

The uPVC windows serve as excellent alternatives to wood and aluminum windows, says Mendoza.

“These windows are structured to resist wind load besides withstanding extremes of weather changes. Their design and multi chambers assure a high degree of internal insulation, thus saving energy.”

These window frames have no pores and require no painting. They can be wiped clean with water.

They are also fire retardant as they self extinguish in case of fire. Their tight seal feature also cuts out dust and noise to a high degree as compared to conventional wood or aluminum window frames.

Besides, their recyclable feature makes them a green option for windows, adds Mendoza.

With an expected lifetime of almost fifty years and their energy saving feature, the up VC windows prove to be economical in the long run.

Their sleek white finish and smooth opening and closing are not only aesthetically appealing but more sophisticated as compared to wood or aluminum.
